New Delhi, 28 April 2014: All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat, the umbrella body of Indian Muslim organizations, condemned the reckless and wholesale death sentences issued today in Egypt against another set of 683 political opponents of the putschist regime which toppled the democratically elected President of Egypt last July and has since continued to break one world record after another in persecution of its political opponents. Persons sentenced to death today include Dr Muhammad Badie, head of the Egyptian mass organization, Muslim Brotherhood. The same Egyptian judge, after a summary trial, had earlier sent 528 political detainees to the gallows only a month ago in a case of political protest and attack on a police station in which one police officer was reportedly killed.
Mushawarat forcefully condemned this judicial murder in Egypt under an illegitimate government. Mushawarat President Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan requested human rights organisations all over the world, especially the UN and EU human rights commissions, to take note of the blatant violations of human rights being committed by the Egyptian putschist government and to take it to the World Court of Justice and to boycott it internationally.
