Mufti Hannan claimed innocence in conversation with mother
Mufti Abdul Hannan, the executed leader of Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami Bangladesh (HujiB), had claimed himself innocent in a phone conversation with his mother Rabeya Begum before being executed on Wednesday night. "I am innocent. Please pray for me," Hannan was quoted by his brother Maolana Munshi Aliuzzaman as saying. Aliuzzaman said his mother got a call from Hannan around 8:30pm and they talked for about three to four minutes. Hannan had requested his mother to look after his wife and children, said his brother.

The notorious militant leader’s wife, two daughters and his elder brother met him in jail Wednesday morning. His elderly mother could not meet him because of illness. Later, Hannan had expressed a wish to speak to his mother over the phone. The jail authorities then made arrangements for a call. Top militant leader Mufti Abdul Hannan Munshi was hanged around 10pm at Kashimpur Jail. On March 19, the Supreme Court upheld death penalties for Hannan and two other HujiB men for the May 21, 2004, grenade attack at Sylhet’s Hazrat Shahjalal shrine targeting Anwar Choudhury, the then UK high commissioner to Dhaka. Three people were killed and more than 70 others, including Anwar, were injured. Hannan was also sentenced to death for the 2001 Ramna Batamul bombing that had killed 10 people.
