Pak reaction over execution proves Jamaat leaders’ war crimes: AL


Dhaka: Ruling Awami League on Sunday said it was proved again through Pakistan’s reaction over the execution of war criminal Mir Quasem Ali that the Jamaat-e-Islami leaders took side with Pakistan during the Liberation War in 1971. UNB News Agency Reported.
“It’s natural that Pakistan would show reaction to any war crimes verdict. They did the same during the execution of other war criminals. This kind reaction is reprehensible,” said Awami League joint general secretary Dr Dipu Moni.
Dr Dipu Moni, also a former foreign minister, was addressing a press briefing after a meeting of the party’s subcommittee, formed for its 20th national council, at AL president’s Dhanmondi political office.
“This type of reaction made it clear that the convicted Jamaat leaders had committed war crimes against the innocent people of Bangladesh,” she added.
Despite Bangladesh’s repeated requests to stay away from its internal affairs, Pakistan did it again by commenting on te trial of war criminals for their crimes against humanity and execution of Jamaat’s moneyman Mir Quasem Ali.
In a statement on Saturday night, Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it is deeply saddened over the execution of war criminal Mir Quasem Ali.
Bangladesh on Sunday strongly protested Pakistan’s undue reaction to the execution of the war criminal terming it a ‘brazen interference’ in Bangladesh’s domestic affairs.
The Foreign Ministry here on Sunday summoned acting Pakistan High Commissioner in Dhaka and Charge d’ Affaires Samina Mehtab and lodged the strong protest.
“It’s completely a direct interference in Bangladesh’s internal affairs. There’s no scope for Pakistan to comment on it,” Additional Foreign Secretary Kamrul Ahsan told reporters after a 20-minute meeting at his office.
