(ISLAMABAD, Pakistan) - Members of civil society, friends and representatives of religious communities gathered at the place, where two years ago, Shahbaz Bhatti former federal minister, was assassinated in sector I-8 Islamabad Pakistan. Members of civil society, friends and representatives gathered at the place of his assassination to pay tribute to the slain former federal minister for minorities Shahbaz Bhatti on the occasion of his second death anniversary.

The event was observed by Samuel Yaqoob, Ijaz, and Basharat Khokhar on Saturday.

Shahbaz didn’t like injustice so he became the voice of those being wronged.

For this he received many threats but he was a courageous man who never backed out his duties and was killed by the religious radical group on March 2.

The problems faced by Christians in Pakistan are serious and consistent.
