ISLAMABAD, Nov 29 (APP): Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Affairs Irfan Siddique Sunday said the issue of “revengeful executions” in Bangladesh should have to be raised at international fora.
He said hanging of some political opponents and imprisonment to others by the Bangladeshi government demanded more than mere issuing statements and ceremonial resolutions on the executions. The issue should have been vociferously raised at international level, he said
while talking to PTV’s programme “Peshraft”.
Irfan Siddiqui said pursuing the politics of 1971 in 2015 was
not good for the people of Bangladesh. Pakistan wanted good relations
with Bangladesh in line with the agreement of 1974, he added.
Bangladeshi leader Mujeeb-ur-Rehman was in prison here in 1971
and he was set free and sent to his country with honour. But the
executions of people for alleged crimes in 1971 were beyond comprehension after lapse of over 40 years, he added.
He said no religion condoned such executions by the Bangladeshi
government, which actually exhibited its vengeance behaviour
He opined BD Prime Minister Hasina Wajid had failed to run her
country as she had crossed all limits. She was pushing her nation
into a quagmire, he added.
He said Bangladesh had already compromised its freedom to India
by becoming its state.
He regretted that the Pakistani nation, government, media, intellectuals and writers should have given more strong reaction on
the executions in Bangaldesh.
He said the issue should be discussed in the Parliament and in
cabinet meetings. All the political parties could also give their
reaction over the matter.
Pakistan, he said, wanted cordial relations with brotherly
Islamic country of Bangladesh, but its current political leadership was
not ready to forget the past bitterness.
