Shabhaz Bhatti - Martyr

Shahbaz Bhatti, the Catholic politician in Pakistan (the first Christian to hold a cabinet post in that country) had been courageously speaking out against the anti-blasphemy laws there, even in the face of death threats. “I follow the principles of my conscience, and I am ready to die and sacrifice my life for the principles I believe,” he said recently.

He was murdered March 2, 2011. Requiescat in pace.
