Senior Egyptian MB leader condemns execution of Bangladesh's Mir Quasem Ali


The deputy supreme guide of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood group, Ibrahim Mounir, yesterday denounced the Bangladeshi authorities' execution of Mir Quasem Ali, the leader of the country's biggest Islamist party, Jamaat-e-Islami party.

In a statement, Mounir said Ali's execution showcased the "injustice" and aggression that followed "unfair political trials."

All human rights organisations, international observers and Bangladeshi political forces condemned the execution, Mounir added, because it had political motives and lacked any safeguards or guarantees for justice.

The London-based Muslim Brotherhood leader called on Jamaat-e-Islami members around the world to "hold on to the stances adopted by the martyr, who refused to seek a pardon from the unjust rulers."

"The [Muslim Brotherhood] group urges all organisations and political forces concerned with human rights in the world to take all possible measures to deter the Bangladeshi authorities" and pressure them to stop this series of executions and human rights violations.
