Ignoring all protests from the civilized world, the government of Bangladesh on Thursday night executed Maulana Abdul Qadir Molla, Assistant Secretary General, Jamaat Islami Bangladesh. Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari, Ameer (National President) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, has strongly condemned this step of Bangladesh government.
In a media statement on Friday, JIH chief Maulana Umari said that opposing any effort or tendency of secession and making effort for maintaining integrity of a country cannot be described as treason. Criminalization of the efforts of Maulana Abdul Qadir Molla and Jamaat Islami Bangladesh and leaders of other parties and convicting them for death or life imprisonment is brazen barbarism, which cannot be justified.
Maulana Umari said it is a fact that none of these leaders were prosecuted and charge-sheeted during the regime of Shiekh Mujib and even after the independence of Bangladesh, Jamaat Islami Bangladesh has been a renowned political party of the country and played constructive role both as a ruling and opposition party. In the age of democracy it is unthinkable that a ruling party, just for revenge, would level wrong heinous charges against political opponents ignoring all the requirements of justice. He urged the Bangladesh government to keep from such acts in future and appealed to the government of India and governments and people of entire world to raise voice against the oppression and brutality.
Ameer-e Jamaat described the death of Maulana Abdul Qadir Molla as martyrdom and expressed deep sympathy with his family members and colleagues of his organization. He prayed to Almighty Allah to pardon his sins, raise his place in the paradise and bestow patience to his family members and strength to all who are on the right path.
