Siraj-ul-Haq condemns Motiur Rahman execution

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Bangladesh head Motiur Rahman Nizami’s execution drew strong condemnation from Siraj-ul-Haq.


Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan chief Siraj-ul-Haq strongly condemned the hanging saying Nizami had been executed for his love for Pakistan.

Bangladesh’s government had executed Nizami on pressure from India, said Siraj-ul-Haq.

The Bangladeshi government committed an atrocity by hanging the 71-year old Nizami, he added.

He further said that the party will continue to make such sacrifices for the country and that he is disappointed over the criminal silence of the leaders.

JI chief said that Nizami was ordered to apologise over the allegations placed upon him but he denied doing so.
