The Rev Fred Nile, Leader of the Christian Democratic Party, was declared re-elected today to the NSW Upper House by the NSW Electoral Commissioner, Mr Colin Barry. The overall composition of the Upper House will be Coalition (LIB/NP) 20; ALP 12; Greens 5; Christian Democratic Party 2; Shooters and Fishers Party 2 and the new Animal Justice Party 1; which will probably align with the Greens 5 Members to give them 6 votes. “I sincerely thank all those NSW citizens who voted for me and so have allowed me to continue to represent the families of NSW, including the Christian Churches, as I have for the last 34 years” said Rev Fred Nile MLC, Leader of the Christian Democratic Party
Mr Nile lost no time in condemning the desecration of the Assyrian Genocide Memorial at Fairfield. “I was shocked by the offensive nature of the graffiti on the Genocide Memorial when I inspected it today with other MP’s” Fred Nile said. “The offensive graffiti was deliberately designed to antagonise the Assyrian community with the large swastika SS symbols, four-letter swear words, obscure references to “Russian Pride” and “White Power”. I urge the NSW Police Force to take every possible step to find and charge the persons responsible”.
A 13-year-old boy is in a critical condition in hospital in Lahore after suspected extremists doused him in petrol and set him alight – allegedly because he is a Christian.
Nauman Masih, an apprentice tailor from the Shera Kot area, suffered 55 per cent burns to his body in the attack on Friday afternoon. Two men on motorbikes reportedly asked him his religion; when Nauman said he was a Christian, they poured petrol over him. Doctors are unsure if he will survive.
The case has provoked outrage among Christian leaders, politicians and organisations, who gathered in Lahore in an act of solidarity.
