DHAKA – Bengali Politician Abdul Kader Mullah, leader of the radical Muslim Party Jamaat-e-Islami, was hung on Thursday in the central prison in Dhaka.
Mullah was the most feared radical politician in Bangladesh and was accused and found guilty of ordering mass murders, including torture and rape. Mullah ordered these atrocities to take place during the independents war with Pakistan in 1971.
The execution was originally planned for Wednesday but Mullah’s lawyers managed to postpone the sentence. On Thursday, the highest ranking judge in the Bangladesh court ruled however that the death sentence could be executed.
Mullah (65) is the first of five Islamic leaders to be executed. All five received the death penalty for war crimes against humanity. During the independence war, Mullah and the other four condemned politicians allegedly made deals with the Pakistani army who tried to stop the independence in East-Pakistan, now Bangladesh.
3 million people died during that war. Yet human rights activists criticized the execution saying it didn’t comply with international standards.
