ISLAMABAD, March 2, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Pakistan’s only Christian government minister, Shahbaz Bhatti, has been shot dead by Muslim extremists in apparent reprisal for opposing the nation’s “blasphemy law,” according to international media reports.
Bhatti, who was the Minister for Minorities, was driving to work in the capital city of Islamabad today when gunmen sprayed his car with bullets, killing him. Leaflets were left at the scene warning others that the same fate would await them if they opposed the blasphemy law, a measure that critics say is used to persecute religious minorities. Reuters reports that the Pakistani Taliban have taken responsibility for the murder.Previously people have been murdered for suggesting Islam is a violent religion. Apparently part of being an Islamist means your inner irony-detector is set to "off".
