A day after Pakistan’s lower house of parliament passed a resolution condemning the execution of Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Quader Molla, Bangladesh’s ministry of foreign affairs summoned Pakistan’s top envoy in Dhaka to register its protest.

Pakistan High Commissioner Afrasiab Mehdi Hashmi was summoned on Tuesday evening to meet foreign ministry secretary Mostafa Kamal, the Daily Star reported.

“The war crimes trials are an internal matter,” Bangladesh’s Foreign Minister A H Mahmood Ali told reporters. Denouncing “uncalled for resolutions” on the verdicts of the war crimes trials in Pakistan, Ali said “it is tantamount to interference in our domestic affairs.”

The foreign minister insisted that Pakistan had acted beyond diplomatic norms in adopting the resolution.

“The trial of the war criminals will go on. No international conspiracy will be able to obstruct it,” he said.

I am disagree with view of liberation war. It was not liberation war,it was a conspiracy against the integrity soiliderity and stabilty of the country Pakistan.A conspiracy was hatched by India and Russia and dismemberment happened in the result. First time I have seen the court which is playing a role of prosecution.Under planned conspiracy a special court was constituted who carried out its obligations received by concerned quarters.Notewithstanding the fact that he was not involved in murder or rape cases He was a cleric and had vast knowledge regarding humanity and fundamental principle of Islam. He was innocent absolutely innocent but convicted and sentenced to death

@M. N. Islam: Baseless allegation have been leveled in your comments. against the person exected by the banladesh government He was innocent not involved in any case you descried as rape etc. He opposed the unrest/upheaval which was being supported by India under a conspiracy. In fact they had desire to dismember Pakistan. Every country,under a global law can raised voice against unjustice,attrocities and illegalities. what did Abdul Quader Molla he committed no crime but did according to his concience.

I would like to request you pls before commenting see the circumstances and ground realities then express views on the subject under consideration.
