Azam’s conviction denounced

LAHORE: Secretary General, Jamaat-e-Islami, Liaqat Baloch, has condemned the 90year jail term to the elderly JI leader in Bangladesh, Prof Ghulam Azam.

He said in a statement that the only crime of Prof Ghulam Azam and other JI leaders was that they were against converting Bangladesh into a secular country and reducing it into a subsidiary of India.

Baloch said that the BD government headed by Haseena Wajid was ignoring the worldwide protests over the issue. He called for immediate release of Azam, Maulana Mutiur Rehman Nizami, Maulana Saeedi and others.
