BD summons Pak envoy to protest Resolution on Abdul Qader Mollah

18 December, 2013

DHAKA: Bangladesh on Tuesday summoned the Pakistani envoy here, a day after Pakistan's Parliament adopted a resolution expressing concern over the execution of Jamaat leader Abdul Qader Mollah for 1971 war crimes.

As per media reports, the foreign office summoned Pakistan high commissioner Afrasiab Qureshi to protest the resolution passed in Pakistan's National Assembly which expressed concern over Mollah's execution.

"The Pakistani envoy has been summoned and the Secretary Bilateral Affairs Mustafa Kamal is expected to hand over a protest note," senior foreign office spokesman said.

Foreign media reports further said, the foreign ministry was likely to protest the strong-worded resolution, which was moved by Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan member Sher Akbar Khan and was adopted with a majority vote yesterday.

Mollah was executed on Thursday for genocide during Bangladesh's 1971 liberation war, hours after the Supreme Court rejected his review petition.

"Pakistan Parliament expresses deep concern on hanging of a veteran politician of Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh for supporting Pakistan in 1971," the resolution said.

The House expressed grief and sorrow with the bereaved family and demanded to avoid reviving the wounds of 1971 and amicably resolve cases against Bangladeshi leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami.
