He said that executions of Jamaat-e-Islami leaders in Bangladesh were not only the problem of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan but also of every Pakistani. He said that the government was making a strategy on the issue to stop Bangladesh from more executions and all stake holder would be consulted in this regard.
