Pakistan̢۪s insolent behaviour



Following the execution of Abdul Quader Molla, an assistant secretary general of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami convicted of war crimes during the war of liberation, the home minister of Pakistan commented that Bangladesh had reopened the wound of 1971 and termed the execution a ‘judicial murder’. The National Assembly of Pakistan also adopted a resolution, tabled by Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan and supported by the ruling Pakistan Muslim League, expressing concern over the execution and condolence to Quader Molla’s family, which amounts to blatant interference with Bangladesh’s internal affairs. Moreover, Imran Khan, a former captain of Pakistan’s national cricket team and now chairman of Tehreek-e-Insaf, reportedly commented that Molla had been hanged on political grounds.
The Bangladesh government has expressed its concern over, and condemned, the resolution adopted by Pakistan’s national assembly. The resolution has also touched off widespread anger in the country. The behaviour of the Pakistan home minister and Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan is unacceptable. They should keep in mind that Bangladesh is a sovereign state. They should also remember that it was the Pakistani military junta that had committed genocide and other war crimes in 1971. Instead of condemning the war crimes trial, the Pakistan government needs to apologise for what its army did more than 40 years ago.
