Bangladesh's execution of Kamaruzzaman condemned

Mohd Azmi Abdul Hamid, MAPIM president | .

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organization (MAPIM) condemns the death execution of the Bangladesh's Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader Mohammad Kamaruzzaman who was hanged late on Saturday 11th April 2015 , 10.30 pm for alleged atrocities committed during the country's 1971 Liberation War, hours after authorities allowed family members to meet him one last time.

The execution of the 65-year-old Jamaat leader, was implemented at the Dhaka Central Jail at 10 p.m., reported by the citing Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia.

This is a judicial murder under the behest of the government of Prime Minister Hasina who continues to conduct the wiping out of Jamaat Islami leaders .

Kamaruzzaman who had decided not to beg the president for mercy , is a victim of a politically motivated trial conducted by legal secular and anti - Islam forces in Bangladesh .

Bangladesh had executed another Jamaat-e-Islami assistant secretary, Abdul Quader Mollah, in December 2013 for similar allegations.

The Jamaat leader was indicted in June 2012 on seven concocted  charges of crimes against humanity under a highly questionable International War Tribunal set up by the Bangladesh government  under Syekh Hasina.

We are shocked how Prime Minister Syekh Hasina has shown no reconsideration to the critics directed at her government on how the trials were conducted in a most outrageous manner.

We call for the international community not to keep silent on the atrocious clamp down of the opposition by the ruling party. The continous legalizing the illegal trial must be stopped less more will be sent to the gallows on a vengence spree by Hasina.

The brutal force used by the security on the public in their street protest against the supporters of the Jamaat Islami cannot be tolerated.

We demand for the release of the Jamaat Islami leaders and the politically orchestrated trials be terminated immediately.

We demand that Bangladesh government come to their senses to focus their energy on combactig rampant corruption and bringing up the living standard of their down throwden people who are living under abject poverty.
