Left leaning political parties on Wednesday strongly reacted to Pakistan government’s stand over the execution of war crimes verdict against Abdul Quader Molla.
National Assembly of Pakistan on Monday adopted a resolution terming the execution of Molla as judicial murder.
The government on December 12 hanged Molla for his crimes against humanity during the country’s war of independence in 1971.
The resolution proved that Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami worked in favour of Pakistan as an auxiliary force of Pakistani army during the war of independence of 1971, they said at separate programmes in the capital.
Communist Party of Bangladesh and Socialist Party of Bangladesh organised the protest rally jointly and Workers Party of Bangladesh separately held protest rallies in front of the National Press Club against the resolution.
The CPB president, Mujahidul Islam Selim, said the reactions of the Pakistani government proved that they still did not forget their defeat in the war of independence of Bangladesh.
They did not seek pardon from Bangladesh for their misdeeds during the war of independence.
Khalequzzaman, the SPB general secretary, said the activities of the Pakistan government were nothing but the interferences in the internal politics of Bangladesh.
The people of Bangladesh will resist any such attempts of Pakistan and United States to foil the trials of the war criminals, Khalequzzaman said.
Chaired by Mujahidul Islam Selim the rally was addressed, among others, by the CPB general secretary Syed Abu Zafar Ahmed and the SPB central leader Bazlur Rashid Firoz.
The two parties will hold countrywide rallies on December 22, protesting against the foreign interferences on the trials of the war criminals and in demand of banning ‘Jamaat-Shibir’ and stopping its anarchies.
The rally was followed by a protest procession.
Leaders of the Workers Party of Bangladesh at a protest rally in front of the Press Club urged foreign ministry to take stern actions against the government of Pakistan for interfering in internal affairs of Bangladesh.
They demanded snapping diplomatic relations with the Pakistan government.
The protesters burnt the portrait of Pakistani politician Imran Khan and Pakistani national flag at the rally.
Chaired by the party’s Dhaka city unit secretary Kishore Roy, the rally was addressed by general secretary of the party Anisur Rahman Mollick, politburo members Fazle Hossain Badsha, Quamrul Ahsan, central leaders Zakir Hossain Raju and Sabbah Ali Khan Colins.
The rally was followed by a protest procession that paraded through different city roads.
Democratic Left Alliance, a combine of eight left leaning political parties, in a press statement condemned the move of Pakistan government on the issue of war crime trials.
Saiful Huq, the coordinator of the combine, said the stand of the Pakistan government would not be accepted by the people of Bangladesh.
