Slain cabinet minister’s brother forgives assassins

CWN - April 07, 2011

The brother of the Pakistani Catholic cabinet minister who was assassinated for his opposition to the nation’s blasphemy law says that he and other family members have forgiven the assassins.

“Our faith teaches us to do this,” said Paul Bhatti at a conference in Rome. “Our brother Shahbaz was a Christian, and the Christian faith tells us to forgive.”
