BNP leader Salauddin Quadir Chowdhury and Jamaat-e-Islami secretary general Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed were hanged in Dhaka’s Central Jail on Sunday.Pakistan’s foreign office expressed ‘shock and anguish’ over the ‘unfortunate executions’ – a move that invited the wrath of the Bangladesh government that called it ‘unacceptable interference’ in its internal affairs, the report said.

The report mentioned that replying to a calling attention notice of Jamaat-e-Islami lawmakers, MNA Ahmad told lawmakers on Wednesday that the government of prime minister Sheikh Hasina Wajid was “violating a tripartite agreement” signed by Pakistan, Bangladesh and India in 1974.
PTI lawmaker Shirin Mazari asked the government to call back Pakistan’s ambassador from Dhaka in protest, the report added.
