“My father is a victim of injustice. We are upset because he has been punished on the basis of some prevailing impressions and not on hard evidence,” Mabrur said in an instant reaction after the judgement.

“I have spoken to my father after the verdict. He told me to be brave and be patient because those who uphold the cause of Islam face such conspiracies all the time,” said Mabrur.

Mujaheed was meted out the death sentence on three of the seven charges against him . He got five years in prison on one of the charges and a life sentence in another, while two charges could not be proved against him.
A former commander of the vigilante group Al-Badr that was blamed for some of the worst atrocities of the 1971 Liberation War, Ali Ahsan Mohammed Mujaheed is now the Secretary General of the Jamaat-e-Islami.
Many top leaders of the Jamaat are on the dock for crimes against humanity during 1971.
