ISLAMABAD: In concern of the hanging of Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh leader Abdul Quader Molla, Foreign Office on Friday said that It’s not our policy to interfere in other states’ matters.
“Pakistan, however, has noted the concerns raised by the international community and human rights organizations regarding the way some recent trials were conducted in Bangladesh, which are feared to have added to the country’s instability”, a Foreign Office spokesman said.
While giving his speech he said that Pakistan is a friendly country and a fellow SAARC member. It serves its time to spread out and follow political development in Bangladesh.
“Pakistan wishes the brotherly people of Bangladesh well and hopes that spirit of reconciliation and an atmosphere free of violence will prevail”, said he.
It is to mention here that Bangladesh on Thursday hanged a veteran member of Jamaat-e-Islami for his alleged involvement in war crimes in 1971 war.
After his hanging JI protested against the domestic court in Bangladesh.
Abdul Quader Molla became the first person to be hanged for his role in the country´s bloody 1971 war when he was sent to the gallows at a prison in the capital Dhaka late Thursday.
The hanging took place at 10:01 pm (1601 GMT) after the Supreme Court dismissed an appeal for a final review of the death sentence handed down to Molla, who was a senior figure in the Jamaat-e-Islami.
Bangladesh was rocked by a new wave of deadly violence Friday as Molla’s supporters went on the rampage to vent their fury at the execution of one of their leaders for war crimes.
Fears that the execution could spark further unrest, in a country where political violence is intensifying in the build-up to deeply divisive elections, were soon realized as the Mollah supporters rioted in street battles in towns and cities.
