KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) vice president Sherry Rehman question on Sunday why the murderers of former minister for minorities Shahbaz Bhatti were still at large.

“Four years on, his (Bhatti’s) murderers are still at large,” she said, while addressing an event organised by the party’s minority wing to honour Bhatti at the the Karachi Press Club.

Bhatti was gunned down on March 2, 2011, by unknown armed assailants in Islamabad. He was the only Christian member of the then central Cabinet.

Rehman, who has also served as an ambassador to United States, added, “We will not rest until terrorism is eliminated.”

Concluding her short speech, the former federal minister said her party wanted to strengthen democracy.

    " ---why the murderers of former Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti are still at

    large ”

    Coming from Sherry Rahman , the question is disgustingly naïve . She surely knows that subjecting minority communities to murder rape plunder is no crime in the God-gifted state of Pakistan . What horrors were committed at Gojra or Josef Colony or a host of other places ! But was there ever any indication that law in Pakistan provided even a modicum of protection to the minorities ? The empty rhetoric displayed by Madam Rahman

    and others is rubbing salt in the injuries inflicted on minorities .
    Madam ! you very well know the answer to the question raised by you . Have the moral courage to be candid and honest about it .Recommend
