    The Government of Pakistan is a federal parliamentary system, with an indirectly-elected President as the Head of State and Commander in Chief of the Pakistani Armed Forces, and an indirectly-elected Prime Minister as the Head of Government. The President’s appointment and term are constitutionally independent of the Prime Minister’s term. On September 6, 2008, the Electoral College (composed of the Senate, the National Assembly, and the four Provincial Assemblies) chose Asif Ali Zardari as the eleventh President of Pakistan for a five-year term. The Prime Minister is usually the leader of the largest party in the National Assembly and is assisted by a cabinet of ministers drawn from both chambers of the federal legislature. The current Prime Minister is Yousaf Raza Gillani of the Pakistan Peoples Party, who took office on March 25, 2008.

    Shahbaz Bhatti: Martyr For the Faith



    YouTube - Exclusive footage of Shahbaz Bhatti's interview

    Courage and Faith. Abstractions to many, meaningless phrases to some, to others they are a way of life. Shahbaz Bhatti was in the last category. His faith was obvious to all. As a Roman Catholic in overwhelmingly Islamic Pakistan he was tireless in spreading the Truth of Christ, and in standing up for the rights of Christians in Pakistan.

    Appointed Minister of Defense of Minorities in the Pakistan government, he took on the position, knowing full well that he was signing his death warrant. Death threats against him were constant. As constant was his speaking out for the rights of Christians and other minorities in Pakistan.

    After leaving his government office each day, he would head over to the offices of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance, working late into the night to continue aiding Pakistan’s embattled minorities.

    He never married, thinking it unfair to put a wife and children in the cross-hairs in which he lived. On March 2, 2011 he was visiting his mother.

    After he left his car was sprayed with bullets and he was killed. The murderers of Al Qaeda and the Taliban have claimed responsibility.
    Evil men have the power to take the lives of the good on this planet.

    They have absolutely no power in the next world where I am absolutely certain the latest martyr for the Faith has heard “Well done my good and faithful servant!” and is now enjoying for eternity the Beatific Vision.

    God, please watch over the soul of Shahbaz Bhatti.

    And, God, please watch over all the minorities in Pakistan.

    Keep them safe always. Keep them safe especially from those who wish them harm.

    Hail Mary
    Full of Grace
    The Lord is with thee
    Blessed art Thou amongst women
    And blessed is the fruit of they womb Jesus.

    Holy Mary, Mother of God
    Pray for us, sinners
    now and at the hour of our death.

    Amen.

    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
    as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, a world without an end.

    Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins,
    save us from the fires of hell
    lead all souls into heaven
    especially those who are most in need of Your mercy.

    Eyes Wide Open: A New Martyr for the Faith

    I want that my life, my character, my actions speak for me and indicate that I am following Jesus Christ. Because of this desire, I will consider myself even to be more fortunate if--in this effort and struggle to help the needy, the poor, to help the persecuted and victimized Christians of Pakistan--Jesus Christ will accept the sacrifice of my life. I want to live for Christ and I want to die for Him. READ MORE »
