Salma Peter John (Mistress) & Shahbaz Bhatti

Salma Peter John and Shahbaz Bhatti

 

 

Shamim Masih writes about a scandal that apparently that is being ignored by the Christian community in Pakistan because of the tragic circumstances surrounding the assassination of Shahbaz Bhatti. Shahbaz indeed died a hero being assassinated by the Taliban for being an activist against Pakistan’s Blasphemy Laws. Shahbaz was the only Christian in Pakistan’s government Cabinet at the time of his assassination.

 

The scandal is Shahbaz Bhatti had a live-in mistress named Salma Peter John. Shamim provides a sympathetic and favorable link to a story and Vimeo video pertaining to Ms. John’s devastation over her sugar daddy’s assassination. I bluntly use the term “sugar daddy” because apparently Ms. John was a kept woman in Pakistan and Shamim wonders who is footing her bills in the USA where she is trying to attain political refuge.

 

Below is the video I placed on Youtube.  I believe you need to watch the video to see how the writer of an article on PakistanChristian.org obviously sympathizes with Ms. John while only slipping in that Shahbaz’s father was not pleased with the living situation with Ms. John:

 

Both Salma and Shahbaz worked tirelessly to see the sprouting of the largest political party of Pakistani Christians, formerly Christian Liberation Front (CLF) and later All Pakistan Minorities Alliance (APMA), grow in all four provinces. Their three-directional-love for persecuted Christians, for each other and for Cammy’s traditional father was constantly at odds with each other.

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minority Minister Shahbaz Bhatti was gunned down on March 02, 2011 by an extremist group in Islamabad. His followers planned to celebrate his death anniversary on Sunday, March 02 and his love bird (Salma Peter John) shattered her silence and shared a video link showing her unannounced relation with late Shahbaz Bhatti. She said, “Cammy was me and I was Cammy” (Cammy was Shahbaz Bhatti’s nickname). She claimed that she lived with him for fifteen years and so they had happy life but couldn’t manage to marry with Shahbaz Bhatti.

 

Salma worked as personal assistance – PA to Shahbaz Bhatti when he was Federal Minister for Minority Affairs. And that is what other knew about it……. A close circle of the minority minister was very well aware of his activities and thus others [were aware of] it as well, but didn’t disclose [the living situation]. On February 15, one of my articles was printed and my family friend wrote me that this article was great but I failed to mention Bhatti’s former “PA” fled to Philadelphia and is still living off another man supposedly active as a leader for Pakistani Christian cause. She mentioned that the big issue is why Christians should trust or respect these who not only deserted their own, but never lived a truly Christian life?

 

The real issue is the shame and scam these two brought on Pakistani Christians – but why no one wants to talk on that? If marriage is a Biblical standard and even more so a strong tradition of Pakistan, how could this “high profile” [couple] not be held to [Christian] standards? If a man loves and respects you he marries you – otherwise you are just being used. If the Bhatti family would not recognized her as even his partner in politics, much less romance, but [rather] wanted nothing to do with her, why should anyone else give her the time of day? And really when all is looked at what did S. Bhatti do to improve lives of Pakistani Christians?

 

From what I hear everyone knew she was S. Bhatti’s mistress, kept by him and that’s how she lived there. She is now shifted to the US but gets no dollars from the government until her asylum case is approved so she [can] get a car for a work permit. So how else is she living if not with and off someone else’s support or living on the savings from her time shacking up with Shahbaz Bhatti?

 

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

Christian PTI leader in trouble


Sajid Ishaq Sindhu

Shamim Masih writes about Sajid Ishaq Sindhu a Christian leader involved in Human Rights and Political Activism in Pakistan. Sindhu is a prominent leader that has become embroiled in an adultery scandal with one Shazia Zafar. Shamim paints a scathing picture of Shazia’s extramarital affairs which her husband Zafar Iqbal accuses Sindhu of being instrumental. That which I have read so far has Sajid Ishaq Sindhu denying any accusation of impropriety; nevertheless the political party Sindhu is involved with has removed him from activity at least until the legal issues are resolved.

Christian PTI leader in trouble

To be and not to be

Islamabad Pakistan (Shamim Masih): During the past week, Pakistani print media has raised a disruptive issue against the PTI Christian leader [NCCR Editor: Sajid Ishaq Sindhu]. Below links will make it clear that all have upturned the issue leaving Pakistan Today – PT.

 

During the past time, it is observed that Pakistani media avoid raising minority issues; it is either Gojra incident or Rimsha’s blasphemy case. I do remember when Rimsha was arrested and Pakistani media stepped in second to international media, and I wrote about it as well. But when it a matter comes of character assassination, it’s active and has crossed journalist’s ethics as well.  It’s not the first time but Pakistani Christians have always been facing different kind of discrimination and its one of them. Let me give you the clear picture; during the said time I remain busy with my family matters and was not in the field.

 

There is no marriage that is problem free. Some marriages endure the ups and downs while others unfortunately fall to one of the very many reasons for divorce. Yet, it is not always the main causes for divorce that break marriages down. In many cases the marriage partners do not actually know the reasons and when those reasons become a problem.

 

Regarding this case [of accusing Sajid Ishaq Sindhu] I had few of the documents earlier and before writing this story I did get the copy of the First Investigation Report [according to Google better known as First Information Report] – FIR, which said that Mr. Zafar [Iqbal] (complainant) got married to Shazia in April 27, 1998 in Sainte Thomas Church, G-7/2 Islamabad.

 

According to Zafar (the complainant) after one year, Shazia Zafar was found in a love affair with her colleague Moen ul Islam Saddiqui, who was manager at Prime Commercial Bank, Islamabad.  After some time she was involved with another banker Asad Ali Noon, who works in Askari Bank. In 2007, Zafar found that she had relations with Sajid Ishaq (the accused) in this FIR. Zafar also claimed that he found many dirty pictures of Shazia with Asad Ali Noon. In his FIR, Zafar complained against many unknown people that were involved in this case.

 

Now see the links below, none of them have mentioned about these other people accused by Zafar, either they have not seen the copy of the FIR or they deliberately omit those people at the time of printing this news.

http://www.nation.com.pk/E-Paper/Islamabad/2013-04-08/page-13/detail-1

 

 

http://etribune.express.com.pk/DisplayDetails.aspx?ENI_ID=11201304120821&EN_ID=11201304120698&EMID=11201304120075

 

Zafar has also submitted the telephone calls’ record as part of the prosecution’s evidence which shows that Shazia had been handling others as well during the mean time. I am not defending Sajid Ishaq nor presenting him a virtuous but giving you the facts.

 

The rumor was in the vicinity for the last few months as Zafar had been in the court for the custody of the daughters and separation suit against his wife Shazia for months.

 

Both [Sajid Ishaq and Zafar Iqbal] were acquaintances for 20 years and were aware of each other and now one of them has become legendary in position in the main stream political party – Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf – PTI and it’s clearly seen that all allegations leveled against PTI the leader is to blackmail him.

 

The police official also seems inclined to either the complainant or the accused or both. Because the police didn’t register the FIR during the past months and now after the PTI leader has submitted his nomination papers with the Election Commission, doubt is created.

  

The couple [NCCR Editor: I am guessing the couple referred to are Zafar Iqbal and his wife Shazia] has been living discretely for years, and the husband claimed that Sajid has played a pivotal role in ruining his life, but the fact written in his FIR says that they had not been leading happy life since one year of their marriage [NCCR Editor: I am uncertain if the “one year” refers the first year of their marriage or to one year out of their marriage]. His wife had been involved with other men as well. So how come he claims that only Sajid Ishaq has ruined their family life? What about Moen ul Islam Saddiqui, and Asad Ali Noon who is still with her and finally his wife? If he has been faithful to his partner and remained in the union, they would have lived a happy life. Shazia might be annoyed of his behavior or character. The case is in the court and we should wait until the court’s judgment.

 

I wish that the local media would always raise the minority persecution issues and should bring in the usage of constitutional discrimination against religious minorities.

 

Be Blessed,

 

Shamim Masih
