The eyewitness account of the life and death of the murdered Pakistani Minister For Minority Affairs by his brother, Paul BHATTI, Pakistan's Minister for National Harmony.
From November 2008 until his assassination in Islamabad on March 2, 2011, Shahbaz Bhatti served as the first Federal Minister for Minority Affairs in Pakistan. Mr. Bhatti, a Roman Catholic and outspoken critic of Pakistan's blasphemy laws was gunned down by Tehrik-i-Taliban for refusing to relent on his fight for the freedom of Christians and other minorities in Pakistan. After Shahbaz's death, his brother Paul courageously stepped forward in his stead and now serves as Pakistan's Minister for National Harmony. Minister Bhatti will share poignant stories from his and his brother's lives: what freedom meant to them, how they remained faithful to it in the midst of all the challenges implied in politics, and how they defended and promoted freedom at the individual and social level.
