JI stages protest sit-in against executions of anti-separation leaders in Bangladesh


LAHORE: Jamaat Islami (JI) on Sunday staged a protest sit-in against the recent hangings of anti-separation leaders in Bangladesh.


JI head Sirajul Haq said on this occasion that the government is guilty of criminal negligence over the issue of these hangings.

Large number of workers attended JI’s protest rally outside Masjid-e-Shuhada in Lahore.

Addressing the rally, Sirajul Haq said that patriots sacrificed to prevent the implementation of the conspiracy to split East Pakistan from the West.

Siraj added that the struggle was not for power but to save the Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal.

Condemning the government’s attitude over the hangings carried out in Bangladesh, Siraj said that 4000 people are still in Bangladesh jails and 25 have been sentenced to death but Pakistan government is still a silent observer.

The speakers at the protest sit-in said that Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Haseena Wajid has been working on the completion of Indian agenda but the blood of the martyrs will not go in vain and injustice will end in Bangladesh.
