Pakistan thanks Pope, but is it enough?

According to this article, Pakistan is thanking the pope for his response to the Terry Jones incident where he was planning on burning a Qur'an in the US. The pope decried the action. Now Pakistan is thanking the pope and wants further action taken to prevent this type of thing from happening.

But my question is, is Pakistan doing enough? I think the best way they can thank the pope is to ensure the safety of Christian in their country. There have been many instances of violence against Christians in Pakistan and reports that the government sometimes turns a blind eye. A particularly infamous case was that of Shahbaz Bhatti, the only Christian in Pakistan's government who was assassinated. See my article on that incident here.

Here's the article I'm referring to above:
