The activists of Ganajagaran Mancha laid a siege to the Pakistan High Commission Wednesday defying police interception and protesting a resolution by its National Assembly against the execution of war crimes convict Abdul Quader Molla.
They shouted anti-Pakistan slogans and also threw shoes into the High Commission premises.
The protestors carrying plackards inscribing ‘Pakistan don’t try to save your dogs’ thronged Gulshan 2 square at about 2:30pm to march toward the Pakistan High Commission.
Police tried to intercept the procession near Gulshan 2 circle where the activists burnt the national flag of Pakistan.
Earlier on Tuesday, a senior foreign ministry official summoned the High Commissioner of Pakistan and lodged a 'strong protest’ against its National Assembly resolution regarding Quader Molla, calling it an interference in the internal affairs of Bangladesh.
Quader Molla, a senior leader of Jamaat-e-Islami, was hanged on December 12 on charges of committing crimes against humanity during Bangladesh's 1971 liberation war.
