ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that Jamaat-i-Islami Bangladesh leader Abdul Quader Mollah, who was executed over war crimes in 1971, was innocent.

Addressing in the National Assembly (NA), Khan said that a lawyer of an international human rights organization called Reprieve‚ who was defending the case of 93-year-old Abdul Quader Mollah‚ told him that the JI leader was innocent and had nothing to do with the charges against him.

Pakistani lawmakers have adopted a resolution expressing concern over the execution of the JI leader.

The PTI leader, whose party is also ruling in the Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, said that fall of Dhaka tragedy gave the people of Pakistan a lesson that issues should be handled democratically and not through military operations.

    I am so glad that Imran Khan issued a statement against the hanging of Abdul Qadir Mullah. This will be a black mark on Islam/Muslims for not opposing this selfish act of the BD govt. because justice cannot be done after 42 years. This was done for political gains and that is it. Where is the Muslim community , 1.3 billion and only Imran Khan could voice his opinion. Shame on the filthy rich leaders of the Middle east . They are out to spread Wahhabism and anyone who disagrees is going to be in their cross wires.

    Bottom line is we Muslims dont practice what we preach? we are condescending when it comes to other religion to the point of being obnoxious, irritating and absurd.

    Abdul Qader Mollah was neither 93 at the time of his death, nor was he ‘innocent’ by any means for the people and cause of the-then East Pakistan. He was tried and sentenced neither on the ground of being an Islamist leader of JI, nor on the ground of being a pro-West-Pakistan in 1971 – but on the ground that he committed heinous humanitarian crimes like direct killing & raping and leading/organizing genocide and gang-rapes of innocent civilians of the-then East Pakistan.
    Mr. Imran Khan should understand that Mr. Mollah and his likes are being tried and sentenced in Bangladesh, not Pakistan. He must recognize the varying interpretation & justification of an act, depending on what angle you’re seeing it from.

      age is not the issue, 93 or 83 does not matter. There is a statute of limitation in a civilized world. In Islam there is eye witness proof, can you provide any ? and then where is compassion that we preach to the whole world.
