Pakistan’s minister for non-Muslim religious minorities was killed in a bold attack on Wednesday, marking the latest casualty in the country’s growing divide between Islamic hardliners and the mainstream population.

Shehbaz Bhatti, the only Christian in the cabinet of President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, was shot dead at close range in broad daylight by three apparently-well-armed gunmen who quickly fled the scene.

Bhatti had been threatened by Muslim extremists for speaking out against Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy law.

Police are reported to have seized Taliban-linked leaflets from the scene of the attack warning opponents of the Islamic law of blasphemy will meet Bhatti’s fate.

I do not know Shehbaz Bhatti’s specific religious views, but do know that the “blasphemy laws” in certain Islamic nations make it difficult to discuss the truth about religion.

While the situation rages in Libya, and those in Egypt and the rest of the Middle East and North Africa try to decide where they will end up, it certainly seems that with Islamic extremists in the background, that they will ultimately play a bigger role in those countries than they currently do.

Pakistan has nuclear weapons, and ultimately it might provide some of them to help support the coming King of the South.  And while it will likely distance itself from that confederation around the time of the fulfillment of Daniel 11:40-43, as it likely will be part of the the nations involved in Daniel 11:44, it currently is an Islamic state and likely will support other Islamic states for a while.
