St. Andrew’s Church Karachi situation invites urgent attention of Christians. By: Julius Danish.
10 Jun 2004
Karachi. June 26, 2004. Following the orders of Member (Land Utilization), Board of Revenue, Sindh dated 17th June 2004 by way of which he set aside the orders of the Commissioner, Karachi dated 16th October 1975 and remanded the same for reconsidera
He has thus opened the way for the alienation of Saint Andrews Church, Abdullah Haroon Road, Karachi from Karachi Diocese.
It is understood in all the local circles that Sadiq Daniel while contesting the cases of his ‘Episcopal legal Battle’ in the Courts spent millions and millions of dollars, in this case he intentionally hired a very unknown and simple advocate namely Annand Kamrani to cover up the inner storey.
Mr. Sardar Saddique (the man who entered in agreement with the Attorneys of Church of Scotland in Pakistan (Bishop Samuel Pervaiz group) in the mean time has moved the High Court for urgent hearing.
Mushtaq Shargeel Bhatti the beneficiary of thus order is said to be the front man of Bishop Samuel Pervaiz and Sadiq Daniel (who gave him the necessary papers and information?). The change in strategy was necessary since the story got leaked to the Church of Scotland in UK who had asked Mr. Jamshaid Rehmat Ullah their present Attorney to look into the matter personally. On misleading advice of Bishop Malik and Sadiq Daniel he only limited himself to giving a statement in favor of Karachi Diocese. If the Church of Scotland officers had applied their mind the situation would be different today.
To divert the attention of the masses in Karachi, Sadiq Daniel has as usual drawn out a plan to create fresh chaos in different Churches/Parishes by using innocent persons and to draw the maximum out of the situation.
Would the ‘Partners’, Church leaders and the masses come to their senses before it is too late.
