India takes its stance in favour of war crimes trials in Bangladesh after the execution of a top war criminal Motiur Rahman Nizami, reports PTI.
Nizami was the highest ranking Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader to be hanged for crimes against humanity in 1971. With his execution, the stigma that we had been carrying for the last 45 years has been removed.
Executed Jamaat ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami is buried at his village home in Santhia upazila in Pabna. Relatives and a few locals attended his namaz-e-janaza held at a madrasa at Monmothpur before he was buried around 7:15am.
