Turkish President Erdogan condemns Maulana Nizami’s death penalty
Sunday, 08 May 2016

Touching upon the decision of Bangladesh’s Supreme Court to uphold the death sentence issued for Rahman Motiur Nizami, head of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, President Erdoğan said: “I condemn the mentality that sentences a mujahid to death, who has neared the age of 70 and who we believe has no earthly sin. I consider such proliferation of hatred there and the understanding that orders such death sentences despite our repetitive initiatives neither as a fair governance nor as a democratic mentality.”
