ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader Abdul Quader Molla was innocent and charges against him were false, Radio Pakistan reported.

The PTI Chairman said that a lawyer of the international human rights organisation Reprieve, who was defending Molla, told him that the JI leader was innocent and had nothing to do with the charges against him.

He was speaking in the National Assembly on Monday.

The tragedy of fall of Dhaka gives us the lesson that issues should be handled democratically, not through military operations, Imran said.

The National Assembly also adopted a resolution on Monday expressing concern over the hanging of Molla, a senior leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh for his “loyalty to Pakistan”.

The resolution was moved by Sher Akbar Khan of Jamaat-e-Islami. The resolution also expresses condolences with Bangladesh and the family of Molla.

The house demanded that the Bangladesh government should not resurrect issues of 1971 and end all cases against the JI Bangladesh leadership in the spirit of understanding.

We witnessed the fall of Dhaka 42 years ago and we seem to have not learnt our lesson, said Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.

Speaking on a point of order, the interior minister said that people still react in a violent manner, do not respect others and despite tall claims about democracy our attitudes are still undemocratic.

He further added that we should carry out self analysis to determine what we achieved and lost since the fall of Dhaka.

Nisar said the government would support the JI resolution on the issue.

PPP leader Abdul Sattar Bachani said the execution of the JI leader was an internal matter of Bangladesh and Pakistan should not interfere in the internal matters of an independent and sovereign country.

MQM leader Abdul Waseem said we should learn from the tragedy of 1971 and ruminate how to avoid national tragedies in future.

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Awami National Party (ANP) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) did not sign the resolution.

PTI leader Makhdom Javed Hashmi, Chief of Awami Muslim League Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid leader Raza Hayat Hiraj and Maulana Ameer Zaman of Jamiat-e-Ulma-Islam-Fazl claimed Molla was executed because of his loyalty with Pakistan.

    He is saying he was innocent because he has been told so “The PTI Chairman said that a lawyer of the international human rights organisation Reprieve, who was defending Molla, told him that the JI leader was innocent and had nothing to do with the charges against him” I think he is good faith, but even I as PTI supporter I would have suggested to not say anything, since we don’t how credible is that lawyer’s statement.

That said, there was an agreement between Mujib and Bhutto not to charge anyone with war crimes, after which our POWs returned from India.

Pakistan is a free country and their democratically elected representative can pass any resolution they want. We have example of US saying that Dr Afridi is innocent and then in Malala case most of European countries passed resolution that her acts were herioic. I am not siding with anyone here, put just pointing out mere facts. Many countries pass judgements about decisions taken in foreign countries. In case of Molla UN also said that fair judgement was not held. So, please get your facts correct before posting, all keyboard warriors of Pak and non-Pakistanis who are suggesting we should not meddle in other countries and are doing exact same opposite on this forum.

    That Sheikh Mujib was killed by members of his own army and that the wife of the leader of that coup is leading the second largest, if not the largest, party, in Bangladesh, and that she has been in government herself clearly shows that things are not as clear and black and white as the proponents of current regime would like the world believe. The truth is some where in between and a raft of recent books on the tragedy of Bangladesh clearly supports it. Atrocities were committed by both sides and this is not uncommon in wars.

    By the way, Molla was a Bangladeshi citizen. If he had loved too much Pakistan, he would have stayed back in Pakistan.

    I will be fool if I think the Jamatis were driven by any Pakistan patriotism. Their sole consideration is religion. That is their conviction. That is their life.

This is really funny that Pakistani politicians are interfering with Bangladesh laws and politics. Those who are no aware of what happened in Bangladesh in 1971 please know that Kader Molla was known as Butcher Kader because of his mass beheadings , raping of 11 year old girl and many other crimes. This is not a verdict against Pakistan, The jamayat islami is hated in Bangladesh by the majority people here in Bangladesh. All they do is cut hands and legs of innocent people. They are the curse of both Pakistan and Bangladesh.They are not an Islamic party at all. Bangladesh jamat is doing politics under a woman. Is this how u do politics by the rule Islam?

    I am a big fan of Pak cricket, My fav is Waqar and wasim and so was Imran Khan but i have changed my mind about Imran. He was good cricketer but a very bad politician. I urge all the young generations of Palistan and PLEASE for the sake of Allah please look into youtube and see what happened in East Paksitan present (Bangladesh) in 1971. Why Bengali decided to not to be part of west pakistan anymore. Genocide took place in Bangladesh by the hands of Muslim brothers which Pak army in 1971. Around 200,000 women were raped and killed, hundreds and thousands killed which almost killed my father too.

    For the last 42 years we, the Bangladeshis, warned them many times to emigrate to Pakistan but they hardly listened. Already one war criminal had run away to Pakistan. Now, they are being prosecuted in Bangladesh, and Pakistani political parties are showing sympathy for them. I can’t believe how can a muslims prefer loyalty to justice !!!

    Even Turkish Prime Minister spoke out against this senseless trial. Liberal trolls here need a reality check. Link: http://www.todayszaman.com/news-333932-erdogan-calls-execution-of-bangladeshi-opposition-leader-a-historic-mistake.html

    I think everyone is getting carried away on this issue. We have poor people in this sub-continent that have been betrayed by our leaders. We should concentrate on eradicating povery instead of exchanging insults on past events. No wonder the Asian sub-continent is at the bottom of the heap.

    @Umer: That is why you have left millions of Muslims in Bangladesh to suffer who claim to be true Pakistanis and also killing every day more Muslims in Pakistan then any where else.

    @Bilal:
    You are right. I must admit bengali babu is an idiot. I am a ‘Bangladeshi’ and i must say i agree with you. There are some bangladeshis who know history. We have no hatred towards Pakistan. How can we hate a nation which sent us weapons and all kinds of aid when our country was on the brink of war with Burma. Its sad how very few people know what truly happen.

    Also, these are not verdicts against Pakistan. They have nothing to do with Pakistan. They are about serving long overdue justice to people involved in murder, rape and other atrocities.
