Govt protests Turkey's reaction over Quasem’s execution
Bangladesh has protested Turkey’s reaction over the execution of condemned war criminal and Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mir Quasem Ali. The government has sent a “strongly-worded” protest letter to the Turkish Embassy in Dhaka in protest against the country's statement on the execution of the top Jamaat financier, says a press release of Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The press release reads: “Such reaction over the execution of a war criminal is tantamount to interference in matters pertaining to Bangladesh.” The Foreign Ministry issued the protest letter on Monday, a day after Turkey had expressed sorrow over the execution of 1971 war criminal Jamaat-e-Islami leader Mir Quasem Ali. Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs floated a press release on its website in this regard on Sunday. “We have learned with sorrow that the death sentence issued by the International Crimes Tribunal in Bangladesh against Mir Quasem Ali, key financier and central executive council member of the Jamaat-e-Islami, has been executed in Bangladesh,” it said. The press note also reads: “We stress once again that the wounds of the past cannot be healed with these methods and hope that this wrong practice will not lead to separation among the brotherly people of Bangladesh.” Meanwhile, Bangladesh has summoned Pakistan’s envoy in Dhaka and protested Islamabad’s reaction over the execution of condemned 1971 war criminal Mir Quasem Ali. In a statement released into six hours of Jamaat leader’s execution, the External Affairs Ministry of Pakistan also condemned the execution. “Pakistan is deeply saddened over the execution of the prominent leader of Jamaat-e-Islami, Bangladesh, Mir Quasem Ali, for the alleged crimes committed before December 1971, through a flawed judicial process,” reads the foreign office statement. Mir Quasem Ali was hanged on Saturday night for committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971.
