Slain Pak minister Shahbaz Bhatti's brother to speak at Vatican gathering

Islamabad, May 16 : The brother of slain Pakistani minister Shahbaz Bhatti will speak in front of Pope Francis and some 120,000 members of new Catholic religious movements on Saturday, the Vatican has said.

Religious freedom advocate Paul Bhatti, a Catholic like his brother, is minister of national harmony and minority affairs and head of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance.

The international gathering is part of the Catholic Church's drive to inspire a "new evangelisation" forged by the pope's predecessor Benedict XVI and it is timed to coincide with Pentecost, the feast of the Holy Spirit, reports The Express Tribune.

Dynamic religious movements like Communion and Liberation, the Neo-Catechumenal Way and Legionaries of Christ, which have drawn thousands of followers, will be represented at the meeting.
