Acting Ameer expresses concern over the issuance of death penalty against Mohamed Morsi
Sunday, 17 May 2015
Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maqbul Ahmed has issued the following statement on 16th May, 2015 expressing grave concern over the issuance of death penalty against the first democratically elected President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi.
“Following the dethronement of the first democratically elected President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi, a false case had been filed against him and subsequently he has been awarded death penalty. The military Junta is carrying inhuman and brutal repression against the people of Egypt and their representatives in a bid to ingrain the unlawful rule.
Since taking the office unlawfully, General Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, he initiated unprecedented crackdown against Muslim Brotherhood, the most traditional party of the nation. Thousands of party activists have been arrested. Death penalty and other convictions have been handed down against hundreds of leaders and activists of Muslim Brotherhood including its chief Mohammed Badie. As a part of the similar crackdown, death penalty has been handed down against the first democratically elected President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi today. We are vehemently condemning this repression and illegal crackdown and calling to restore democratic environment in Egypt.
I am urging the United Nations, human rights organizations and different global institutions and world community to raise voice against the brutal suppression and torture of the Egyptian government. Besides, I am calling upon the Egyptian authority to free the all the detained leaders and activists of Muslim Brotherhood including its chief Mohammed Badie and the first democratically elected President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi immediately.”
