Death sentence to 529 Muslim Brotherhood supporters is murder of justice and humanity: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind

New Delhi, 26 March, 2014: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has termed as murder of justice and humanity the death sentences awarded to 529 Muslim Brotherhood members and supporters of the ousted president Mohammad Morsi in Egypt.

"The verdict of the Egyptian court is a mockery of Islamic rules and principles and an extremely brutal act," said Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari, the national President of Jamaat-e Islami Hind. He advised the rulers of Egypt to desist from writing a condemnable history of brutalities and to fear the wrath of the Almighty.

The President of JIH said that justice and equality demand that courts should have taken sou moto action against those who ousted the democratically-elected president Mohammad Morsi through terror, brutal and unjustified means, and should have awarded those outlaws stringent punishment for their brutalities. It is sad that instead of doing that and ignoring all established rules of judiciary, courts are awarding death sentences to those who raised their voice for establishing justice.

Maulana Umari appealed to United Nations, human rights organisations and all justice- loving nations and people of the world to raise their voice against the brutal and unjustified act of Egyptian courts so that innocents could be saved and justice established.
