Politician under death threat from Taliban thanks Canada

Yesterday, the Toronto Sun published a story about Shahbaz Bhatti, the Pakistani cabinet minister who has spoken out against Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, like the one under which Christian mother Asia Bibi was sentenced to death back in November.

Bhatti met with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and several cabinet ministers during his recent visit to Ottawa. They discussed the importance of standing up for the rights of religious minorities. Bhatti thanked Canada for its support of minority rights.

Check out the story here.
