The All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, the umbrella body of Indian Muslim organisations, today severely condemned the Bangladesh government’s hasty execution of a controversial verdict issued by a discredited and politicised tribunal.
President of AIMMM, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan said here that the hasty execution of Maulana Abdul Qadir Molla, a prominent leader of Jamaate-Islami Bangladesh, is a scandal and crime committed by an unpopular government which is about to be overthrown by the people of Bangladesh in the forthcoming general elections. The present government by its hurried execution of a controversial order by a discredited and politicised tribunal is only seeking to weaken opposition forces.
Dr Khan said it was totally unfair to revive closed cases after four decades defying the decision of the first President of Bangladesh. Dr Khan said this judicial murder will go into history as one of the sins and misdeeds of the present Bangladeshi ruler. Dr Khan asked international human rights organisations to take the Bangladesh government and its discredited tribunal to the International Court of Justice as sanity and good counsel have failed to bring the present rulers of Bangladesh to their senses.
