Bishop warns of aid naivety
A senior Christian leader has warned much of the aid flowing into Pakistan to help deal with massive flooding may never be used for relief.
Retired Anglican bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, a Pakistani national who has spent much of his life in Britain, is visiting Australia to discuss issues around Islam and its growth in the West.
“The misery that the (Pakistani) people are in has been caused, to some extent, by corruption and incompetence,” Bishop Nazir-Ali told reporters in Canberra on Monday.
Much of Pakistan is still under water.
The floods began six weeks ago after exceptionally heavy monsoon rains.
They’ve washed over at least 3 million hectares of farmland, destroyed or damaged more than 1.8 million homes and covered an area larger than the Northern Territory.
“How do you expect that corruption and incompetence to deliver relief,” Bishop Nazir-Ali said.
“I think it is good to make generous gestures but I think it’s also very important to make sure at least some of this money actually gets to the people who are really suffering.”
The former bishop of Rochester, Kent, Bishop Nazir-Ali has been a leading spokesperson against what he describes as the “triple jeopardy” of aggressive secularism, radical Islam and a misplaced understanding of multiculturalism.
He has spoken strongly against the introduction of Sharia law to sit alongside statutes.
Bishop Nazir-Ali has further engagements in Adelaide and Perth before leaving Australia.
