Rehman Malik’s remarks & Christians
THE government must take serious notice of the comments made by Interior Minister Rehman Malik who compared the zucchetto of the Holy Father with Dr Tahirul Qadri’s cap.
He made fun of Dr Qadri by mocking him, saying ‘his cap looks like one that of the Pope’. He also said that Dr Qadri looks like a mini-Pope. Rehman Malik should have respect for the Holy Father who is the sole representative of the biggest religion of the world.
He has violated the constitution of Pakistan by his irresponsible statement and we, the Christians, condemn it. He must apologise publicly for hurting the religious sentiments of Christians.
Pakistan is already in a critical situation and such statements can be more harmful and can lead to another march to Islamabad by Christians.

WILL the Chief Justice take notice of the remarks made by Rehman Malik for making fun of the attire of Dr Tahirul Qadri, calling him a semi-pope and ‘padri’?
This is an affront and has hurt the sentiments of Christians. Why was he so scared of Dr Qadri’s cap?
