Update : 14 Dec 2013, 12:05 PM

Pakistan Jamaat-e-Islami staged a demonstration on Friday demanding the expulsion of the Bangladesh ambassador from their country over the execution of convicted war criminal Abdul Quader Molla.

Several activists of the party blocked University Road in Karachi and staged the demonstration protesting the execution of convicted war criminal Abdul Quader Molla, reports Dawn.

During the demonstration they demanded the government to expel the Bangladeshi ambassador from Pakistan.

Sindh Jamaat chief Dr Merajul Huda Siddiqui claimed that the war crimes tribunal of Bangladesh had awarded death penalty to Quader Mollah over fake testimonies.

Merajul said: “The death of Quader Molla would not eliminate his mission and Islamic movements would move forward by taking inspiration from him.”

Criticising the execution, he said: “Why are human rights organisations silent on this grave injustice? Why has the government played no role in rescuing a person who even prayed for Pakistan in his last letter?”

Meanwhile, Karachi Jamaat chief Hafiz Naeemur Rehman accused the prime minister of Bangladesh of “fulfilling an Indian agenda”with the step of execution.

Additionally, countrywide protests were staged in major cities including Lahore and Karachi, Multan, Quetta, Peshawar and gayebana janaza was held in different places for the “Butcher of Mirpur” Abdul Quader Molla.

Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan has released a video of Quader Molla's namaz-e-janaza and burial on its facebook page.
