We condemn PCB statement on Pakistan Christian Post news items about conversion of Yousuf Yohana. Nazir Bhatti


USA. September 25, 2005. Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress and Editor of Pakistan Christian Post have strongly condemned the statement of Pakistan Cricket Board PCB

on conversion of Christian cricketer Yousuf yohana to Islam. He said " PCB is responsible for conversion of Yousuf Yohana to Islam because PCB failed to provide security to Yousuf Yohana and his family when his children were attacked in Lahore on way to Christian School to press him to convert to Islam and to send his children to Islamic Madrassa" Mr. Bhatti added that PCB is supposed to clarify its position on invasion of "Tabling Groups" on liberty of Yousuf Yohana and other team members. The PCB is hiding facts about conversion of Yousuf Yohana and Christians of Pakistan reserve right to know who invited Pakistani Media to show him performing Friday Prayers at Qazafi Stadium where PCB office is situated. Nazir Bhatti said that if decision of conversion to Islam by Yousuf Yohana was made at liberty Why he did not announced it in any press conference rather than under the roof of PCB offices in same stadium. He said "Pakistani Christians have strong doubts to believe that Yousuf Yohana was forced to convert to Islam under threats of blasphemy laws in Pakistan because he used to kiss cross in his neck and perform sign of trinity during his scoring and PCB officials disliked his such Christian faith acts" Nazir S Bhatti said that it's on record and duly published in press that Ex-Cricketer Imran Khan disliked Yousuf Yohanna to lead Pakistani Team during absence of Inzmam-ul-Haq. The PCB was also aware of intentions of few cricketers who arranged meetings of Yousuf Yohana and Muslim evangelists to press him to change religion. Nazir Bhatti also condemned the Christian Parliamentarians in Pakistan who are silent on conversion of Yousuf Yohanna because his conversion shall create problems for millions of Christians in their work places on conversion attempts by their Muslim co-workers. Mr. Bhatti said " its shameful for our Christian parliamentarians who are not raising voice on enforced conversion of Christian women every year and now Yousuf Yohana is victim" Mr. Bhatti questioned Muslim leaders "was this enforced conversion of Christian men and women in Pakistan what they promised to bring them in mainstream of society on implementation of Joint Election System? Mr. Bhatti appealed to President of Pakistan, General Parvez Mushrraf to constitute an independent commission headed by Supreme Court judge to reveal facts about conversion of Yousuf Yohana. The commission may be also authorized to present recommendation on conversion of religion in Pakistan because there are thousands of enforced conversions of Christian in Pakistan by influential Muslims. Mr. Nazir Bhatti warned PCB to stay in limits and to extend an apology to Pakistan Christian Post to term it's reporting on Yousuf Yohana a "Rubbish" because PCP is true, independent and only voice of Pakistani Christians settled abroad and living in Pakistan.
