Yesterday I received a call from Mr.Pervaiz Shoukat Bhatti Advocate, and I was told that Bishop Pervaiz Joseph was threatened to be involved in blasphemy case by some Muslims and also threatened that he would be killed by Muslims. I contacted with Bishop and he requested that his family was still in previous house but Bishop himself was in safe Place.
After this I contacted with Mr.Liaqat John and requested and directed him to contact with Bishop's family. He contacted with Bishop's wife and asked the whole story. I requested and directed to Mr.Liaqat John to shift the family to safe house.
After that I personally met with Bishop and his family, when I inquired the real problem, Bishop told me that there is another Pastor Baber George, was also threatened by some Muslims Militants, Bishop told me the whole story in this way.
During this work he performed many unique activities regarding the promotion of religious harmony among different religions including Islam.
During performing this job, he met with different Religious and political Leaders and discussed many issues regarding the blasphemy laws and its misuse.
I was told by Bishop that there were some Muslims who were also working with him while he was discussing with them about the misuse of blasphemy laws, during exchange of communications, he was blamed that he used some derogatory words/remarks against Holy Prophet and in this way he has committed criminal act because that time with Bishop, there was also his colleague Pastor Baber George, he was also blamed in the same allegation. He also left his house and now with his family, is in safe place.
I was told by Bishop that actually they are just blackmailing and harassing Bishop for Evangelism Mission which he was doing through Interfaith Harmony and Peace Promotion.
I was also told by Bishop that still he is receiving many threats on Phone calls and threatened to be killed.
Dear brothers we are trying to meet personally to those Muslims so that the possibility of registration of FIR can be avoided to register against them and also contacting to some Political Leaders so that the dangerous atmosphere can be made calm.
