Geelani expresses concern over death penalty to six JeI leaders in Bangladesh

Srinagar—Syed Ali Geelani expressed his deep shock and concern over Bangladesh’s Supreme Court verdict for death pen­alty to six Jamat-e-Islami leaders, saying “Bangla­desh government has in­vited the wrath of Allah by killing the innocent Muslim scholars and intellectuals. Friday Geelani said that since the influence of In­dia has been established in Bangladesh, Sheikh Hasina is killing Islamists and in­tellectuals in a well thought out plan and added that Bangladesh Prime Minis­ter has been dancing on the tunes of India to appease them and has been target­ing the eminent Muslim religious leaders by impli­cating and executing them.

It is murder of justice, said Geelani and added that it will have serious conse­quences on Bangladesh. It is moral responsibility for Pakistan to play an effective role as they are being sen­tenced to death just because they did not favour the di­vision of Pakistan in 1971, said Geelani.

Syed Ali Geelani lament­ed all ruling elite in Muslim world, saying that they are on war path against Mus­lim scholars and religious organisations, however despite facing tyrant and brute forces they are mov­ing ahead.

They are writing a his­tory with their blood and il­lustrating that no power on earth can stop them while serving interests of Islam, said Geelani.

Strongly criticising Eu­rope, America and Israel, Geelani said that they in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan Egypt, Chechenia, Burma and Palestine are providing every help to their puppets against Islamist forces and blamed India for its deceit­ful political activities in Bangladesh.

Denouncing Bangladesh government and while re­futing the allegations lev­elled against Jamat Leaders in Bangladesh, Geelani said that these allegations are baseless and concocted.

Geelani warned Bangla­desh government of dire consequences, saying that such brute behaviour can de­stabilize country and create uncertainty in the region.

Appealing international organisations for human rights, Geelani impressed upon the world human rights bodies to take con­crete steps against the tyrant Sheikh Hasina government to halt the hanging and uphold its commitments with world community. (CNS)
