  1. was there any funeral prayers held in absentia in Pakistan commemorating the killings of Muslims by the hand of the Muslims in 1971?

  2. He was accused of committing the war crime( helping Pakistani Military), 42 years ago, at an age of only 23, how big of a monster he was ? Did these blood thirsty people not kill enough when our brave general Niazi surrendered? I do not belong to JI, but it is a shame no other national so called 'leader' did say a word about this savagery. Why now?

  3. Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami leader Abdul Qadir Mullah (for me always East-Pakistani Brother) was killed by a Criminel Secular bandits anti Muslims forces in Islamic Land this is a big crime against world of Islam you move or not time will tell us but the very big troubles are a head for this country

    • You are correct…as long as many Pakistanis support the killers and rapists in the JI your country is headed into continued problems…

  4. No surprise that this old windbag Hassan would be in support of a mass murder convicted of killing 344 innocent civilians…he has always supported the enemies of Pakistan and condemned the brave soldiers who are killed by Taliban animals…he can easily dismiss the fact that this JI militant was convicted of raping and murdering an 11 year old girl…Hassan keeps company with the lowest forms of life in Islam…

  5. Munawwar YOU are a Trator of Islam and the MUSLIMS of the world. You must have justified the judgement of the Bangladesh Court positively. But how can a trator do such a good deed. Shame on You. You so-called Mullah
