The Christian Post offered an insightful commentary on the recent murder of Bhatti, Pakistan’s sole Christian cabinet member. This is a huge loss for the Christian community. Please continue to pray for Bhatti’s family and the fragile situation for Christians in Pakistan.

LAHORE – Pakistan‘s
minister for minorities Shahbaz Bhatti will be buried at his ancestral
village Khushpur, some 200 kilometers (124 miles) west of Lahore, on
Friday at 1 p.m. (local time).

But as Pakistan’s first and only Christian cabinet member is about to
be laid to rest, his family members and government officials are
arguing over the amount of security he received.

Bhatti’s family
said he was never given an extended security cover and had the same
security from his first to the last day as minister, despite many
requests to the government for more protection.
