Karachi: March 30, 2013. (PCP) Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC said that Christian who are seeking Selection for Parliament in election 2013, will be not Christians but converted Muslim after signing nomination
papers which very first time seek to sign preserver of Islamic laws in Pakistan as oath.
Dr. Nazir Bhatti quoted comments of prominent lawyer Ghulam Mustfa Lakho "42 DAYS in Pak General Election-2013. This Election is free from the chains and/or curse of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights! It has no room for secularists and/or free thinkers. All candidates for National Assembly and Provincial Assemblies are bound to declare on oath in the Nomination Form that they "will strive to preserve the Islamic Ideology which is the basis for the creation of Pakistan.” In such situation, it would be difficult to prove that all candidates have taken false oath. In this so-called fair, free and transparent Election, all candidates are, without exception, the believers and “preservers” of the “Islamic Ideology”. Is it Pre-poll rigging? Or it is Legal Framework Order for Pre-poll rigging? Thanks to the oath taken by all the candidates, it may be safe to say that the Pak General Election-2013 is the Election OF the believers and “preservers” of the “Islamic Ideology”, BY the believers and “preservers” of the “Islamic Ideology” and FOR the believers and “preservers” of the “Islamic Ideology”. The Pak Land or the Land of the Pure is purified from the pollution of secularists and/or Free Thought forces, it is the graveyard of such forces; hence, silence, no protest on this point in Pakistan! Not only so, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Watch Network Worldwide including United Nations is also silent on this point involved in the Pak General Election-2013"
in a letter to US Senators of Pennsylvania and US Commission on International Religious Freedom, PCC Chief Nazir Bhatti wrote:
Pakistan Christian Congress PCC Petition to Repeal Blasphemy law and Election instead of Slection on Reserved Seats for Women and Minorities in Pakistan Election of 2013.
The poor, oppressed and persecuted Pakistani Christians need urgent support of your honor, US Congress and US Adminstration to press upon government of Pakistan to end misuse of blasphemy law against religious communities in Pakistan.
I wish to bring in your notice that Pakistan Christian Congress PCC filed a lawsuit in Lahore High Court in 1998, to repeal blasphemy laws and vows to continue its leagal struggle against blasphemy laws in Pakistan.
The violence rose on pretext to blasphemy laws after imposition of Joint Electorate which empowers Muslim parties to Select Christian representation in parliament after 2002, national general elections.
The incidents of Gojra and Korian village Muslim mob attacks and burning of Christians alive, killing of blasphemy accused Christians in court compunds and jails and rising numbers of registration after Selection of minorities representation have proved that Christians have lost voice in democratic institutions.
We appeal your honor to write to government of Pakistan to hold elections on 10 Reserved seats for minorities and 60 Reserved seats for women in National Assembly of Pakistan which are being undemocratically and unconstitutional filled through Selection by Muslim parties in parliament. The Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan bar such Selection when Article 226 of it says that all seats of parliament shall be elected with secret ballot.
We invite your intervention to hold free, fair and trasparent Election 2013, in Pakistan; Its very important to note that Pakistan is heading towards Talibanization when all candidates for National Assembly and Provincial Assemblies are bound to declare on oath in the Nomination Form that they "will strive to preserve the Islamic Ideology which is the basis for the creation of Pakistan.” it means the next parliament will be of believers and preservers of Islamic Sharia law in Pakistan closing doors for interfaith harmony, religious freedom and practice of Universal Human Rights decleration. It must be warning bell for US and democratic world that Pak Land or the Land of the Pure is purified from the pollution of secularists or Free Thought forces to turn it safe heaven for Islamists, Jihadists and extremists.
41 days are left in Pakistan Elections of 2013, and we hope that You shall take action to secure true democracy and human rights in Pakistan.
PCC have already filed a Petition to US Congress which have been signed by more than fifty US citizens to repeal blasphemy laws and election on reserved seats.
