Lahore – The Ameer of Jamat-ud-Dawah Pakistan, Professor Hafiz Muhammad Saeed has condemned the death penalty that has been awarded to a leader of Jamat-e-Islami, Ali Ahsan Mujahid, in Bangladesh.
Hafiz Saeed said that the United Nations and Muslim countries ought to take serious notice of the human rights violations in Bangladesh, and there should be pressure put on Bangladesh to end their supposed war tribunal through which they are targeting the leadership of the Jamat-e-Islami as well as all those who favor Islam.
To start sentencing people after 43 years is an apparent personal vendetta on the part of the current Bangldeshi regime. He said that Professor Ghulam Azam, Ali Ahsan Mujahid and their partners have been victimized for trying to keep Pakistan united. In view of this, Muslim countries should raise their voices in protest of these human rights violations.
Those who are victimizing Muslims and those who are favoring Islam should learn a lesson from Sheikh Mujeeb-ur-Rehman. Bangladesh has a population that loves Islam. They will not accept the unjustified life imprisonment and death penalties handed out to people who love Islam.
