Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan has said it just got one more Shaheed (martyr) in the form of Abdul Quader Molla, who was hanged in Bangladesh, in a statement it made as a post in its official facebook page.
Earlier, when Ghulam Azam was sentenced to 90 years’ imprisonment, Pakistan Jamaat stated on its website: “Chief of our Bangladesh branch has been punished.”
Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan, on its Facebook page, provoked angry reactions over Quader Molla's execution.
On its cover page the party posted a picture that deemed December 16 the fall of Dhaka while the profile picture space sports a photo of Quader Molla.
Jamaat also called the execution of Quader Molla an acid test of faith.
One post asks the Pakistan government to seek an explanation from Bangladesh and instigates it to outright launch an attack on Bangladesh. According to another post, the "cruel silence of Pakistan army" on the execution is described as a crime.
At 8:50pm, the party posted an official statement quoting Molla’s wife: “I am proud that I am the wife of a Jamaat cleric.”
Earlier, when the verdict against Ghulam Azam was handed down, Pakistan Jamaat propagated him as the chief of the organisation’s Bangladesh wing.
Bangladesh hanged war criminal Abdul Quader Molla on Thursday, 42 years after the country’s bloodstained independence in 1971.
