PCC demands protection of Christian journalists in Balochistan

KARACHI: Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress (PCC) has expressed concerns over safety and security of Christian journalists in Balochistan after a threatening letter was sent to Quetta Press Club by an extremist organization, says a press release issued by Central Secretariat of Pakistan Christian Congress.

The letter sent by an outfit named Fidayan-e-Islam said entry of Christian members of the club be banned because they were involved in anti-Islam activities. There are four Christian journalists pointed in this threatening letter who are cameramen.

One Christian photojournalist talking to Pakistan Christian Post (PCP) said that he did not feel safe in Pakistan after this threat but had no place to hide.

Dr. Nazir Bhatti urged Baloch nationalists to come forward and save Christians in the province from threats of Islamists.
