Brotherhood condemns Bangladesh execution of opposition leaders

The Muslim Brotherhood has condemned the “unjust and unfair” execution of two opposition leaders in Bangladesh.

On Saturday, the authorities in Dhaka carried out the death sentences passed on the Secretary General of the Islamic Group in the country, Ali Ahsan Mujahid, and an MP of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, Salauddin Quader Chowdhury.

“The fierce attack on the symbols of Islamic Action by imprisonment and the death penalty will not succeed in dissuading the Mujahideen fighters who walk the path of freedom and dignity,” said a Brotherhood statement on its website.

Bangladesh’s highest court sentenced the two opposition leaders to death for crimes against humanity allegedly committed during the country’s war of independence in 1971.
