Pulong ng Editor

By Fr Seán Coyle

 

Minister Bhatti, you forgot one question in the interview. Your life is threatened by whom and what sort of threats are you receiving?

Pulong ng Editor: RICHELLE (English Subtitles)

In the July-August 2008 issue of Misyon we featured an article by Richelle Verdeprado, then studying for a degree in Social Work at the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos (UNO-R) in Bacolod City, A Child Redeemed is a Generation Saved. We also published this as a video, with Richelle reading her own article.

Fr Hector Suano, now in charge of Mission Promotion and Fundraising for the Columbans in the Philippines, was moved to make a video about Richelle herself. Instead of Pulong ng Editor we present here Father Hector’s video, using the version with subtitles in English. Richelle speaks in her own language, Hiligaynon, while Sr Alma Alovera TC speaks in Cebuano. We also have a version with subtitles in Spanish.

 

Minister Bhatti, you forgot one question in the interview. Your life is threatened by who and what sort of threats are you receiving?

The forces of violence, militant banned organizations, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda, they want to impose their radical philosophy on Pakistan. And whoever stands against their radical philosophy that threatens them, when I’m leading this campaign against the Sharia Law, for the abolishment of (the) Blasphemy Law, and speaking for the oppressed and marginalized, persecuted Christian and other minorities, these Taliban threaten me.
