International War Crimes Mass Trial Convener and Shipping Minister Shajahan Khan on Wednesday said government will take counter measures if the Pakistan parliament adopts any resolution regarding the execution of war criminal Ameer Motiur Rahman Nizami.
Slamming Pakistan's call to Bangladesh to bring back a diplomat from Islamabad, the minister said it was disgraceful as the Pak authorities failed to show any reason for such call.
Shajahan Khan made the comments while was addressing a rally organized by International War Crimes Mass Trial in front of National Press Club in the city.
Shajahan Khan said the allegation brought against the Bangladeshi diplomat is funny.
He also said counter measures would be taken if the Pakistan parliament adopts any resolution regarding the execution of Jamaat Ameer Nizami.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the death penalty of Nizami for crimes against humanity in 1971.
Shajahan Khan thanked the apex court for upholding Nizami's death penalty, saying that the court has realized the sentiment of the people.
He also demanded trial of Pakistani army members accused of war crimes and return of all assets plundered from Bangladesh. "We have full confidence in the International War Crimes Tribunal. It will be able to try 195 Pakistani army members," he added.
The shipping minister further said no talks will be held with BNP chief Khaleda Zia unless she seeks apology for burning people to death.
among others Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haq, International War Crimes Mass Trial Joint Secretary journalist Abed Khan, Shirin Akhtar, MP, Muktijoddha Sangsad Vice-Chairman Ismat Quadir Gama, actress Rokeya Prachi, Swadhin Bangla Betar Kendra artiste Manoranjan Ghoshal and Bidyut Sramilk League General Secretary Alauddin Mian also addressed the rally.
Mozammel Haq said only the trial of war criminals is not enough, their assets should be confiscated.
International War Crimes Mass Trial announced a series of programmes, including mass campaign from January 7, press conference on January 17, discussion meeting on January 20 and mock trial at Suhrawardi Udyan on March 26.
