The leader of the Pakistan Jamaat-e-Islami, Munevver Hasan, has said that the US, the West and India were behind the execution of Bangladesh Jamaat leader Abdul Quader Mollah.

While clashes rage on in Bangladesh after the execution of Mollah, protests have swept across Pakistan.

On Friday, demonstrators in Pakistan made prayers for Mollah and protested against the Bangladeshi government. These demonstrations continued over the weekend. Meanwhile, Pakistan Jamaat leader Munevver Hasan called a press conference in Islamabad, where he addressed delegates from a number of Pakistani parties.

In the conference, the trial of Jamaat members in war crimes courts was discussed, with Bangladesh being accused to working to execute Jamaat members.

Responding to questions from TRT Turk, Munevver Hasan accused India and Western nations of being behind the execution, claiming that the Bangladeshi government was working with them because they knew that they are likely to fail in the upcoming elections.

Hasan also accused the Pakistani government of not doing enough to condemn the execution, mentioning that Bangladesh and Pakistan had agreed not to set up war crimes courts after their 1971 war.

However, Pakistan did make clear its condemnation of Mollah’s hanging, complaining that Bangladesh had committed a human rights violation.
