Death sentence to JI BD leader condemned

Lahore: Secretary General, Jamaat-e-Islami, Liaqat Baloch, has strongly condemned the death sentence awarded to Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh leader Azharul Islam, and said that innocent JI leaders and workers were being convicted simply out of vendetta.

In a statement issued from Lahore, Baloch appealed to the world community to take notice of the miscarriage of justice in Bangladesh.

Baloch noted that at the time of the creation of Bangladesh, Azharul Islam was simply a first year student and accusing him of multiple murders was ridiculous. He said that the BD government was victimizing JI leaders in Bangladesh only to please Indian rulers.
