New Delhi: Jamat-e-Islami leader Abdul Kadir Mollah was executed by Bangladesh on Thursday for his role in atrocities during 1971 war of independence.

Various Indian Muslim organizations have reacted to this hanging:

Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee (CLMC):

Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee strongly condemns the death sentence of Abdul Kadir Mollah. The death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights. It is the premeditated and cold-blooded killing of a human being by the state. This cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment is done in the name of justice.

It should be noted that the charges leveled against Molla have been denied by him always. It is also clear that there is no evidence against Molla or other convicts. Bangladesh set up International Crimes Tribunal in 2010 to investigate the abuses took place during the 1971 conflict. But, it is a matter of concern that UNHRC strongly opposed this so called ICT because it is against the international standards and had written to Bangladesh government to stop the execution because the trial had not met the international standards required for the death penalty. It is largely believed that it is an attempt to eradicate the Islamist opposition leaders.

We express our solidarity with the family of Jamat e Islami leader Abdul Kader Mollah and hope that the people of Bangladesh will understand the conspiracy of Shiekh Hasina’s politics of revenge and will give her a fitting reply.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind

JIH chief Maulana Umari said that opposing any effort or tendency of secession and making effort for maintaining integrity of a country cannot be described as treason. Criminalization of the efforts of Maulana Abdul Qadir Molla and Jamaat Islami Bangladesh and leaders of other parties and convicting them for death or life imprisonment is brazen barbarism, which cannot be justified.

Maulana Umari said it is a fact that none of these leaders were prosecuted and charge-sheeted during the regime of Shiekh Mujib and even after the independence of Bangladesh, Jamaat Islami Bangladesh has been a renowned political party of the country and played constructive role both as a ruling and opposition party. In the age of democracy it is unthinkable that a ruling party, just for revenge, would level wrong heinous charges against political opponents ignoring all the requirements of justice. He urged the Bangladesh government to keep from such acts in future and appealed to the government of India and governments and people of entire world to raise voice against the oppression and brutality.

Ameer-e Jamaat described the death of Maulana Abdul Qadir Molla as martyrdom and expressed deep sympathy with his family members and colleagues of his organization. He prayed to Almighty Allah to pardon his sins, raise his place in the paradise and bestow patience to his family members and strength to all who are on the right path.


The All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, the umbrella body of Indian Muslim organisations, today severely condemned the Bangladeshgovernment’s hasty execution of a controversial verdict issued by a discredited and politicised tribunal.

President of AIMMM, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan said here that the hasty execution of Maulana Abdul Qadir Molla, a prominent leader of Jamaate-Islami Bangladesh, is a scandal and crime committed by an unpopular government which is about to be overthrown by the people of Bangladesh in the forthcoming general elections. The present government by its hurried execution of a controversial order by a discredited and politicised tribunal is only seeking to weaken opposition forces.

Dr Khan said it was totally unfair to revive closed cases after four decades defying the decision of the first President of Bangladesh. Dr Khan said this judicial murder will go into history as one of the sins and misdeeds of the present Bangladeshi ruler. Dr Khan asked international human rights organisations to take the Bangladesh government and its discredited tribunal to the International Court of Justice as sanity and good counsel have failed to bring the present rulers of Bangladesh to their senses.
