After meeting with the war crimes convict and Jamaat-e-Islami leader Muhammad Kamaruzzaman, his son Hasan Iqbal said on Wednesday that his father is not worried.
“Father is not worried, he is fully fit both physically and mentally’, Hasan said this to journalists at the jail gate around 10:00am.
While asked if Kamaruzzaman will seek president’s mercy or not, he said it is my father’s own decision, so we cannot say anything about it.
Sources said Kamaruzzaman’s wife Nurunnahar, four sons Iqbal, Wali, Wami, Safi, Wasi, daughter Afia, two daughter-in-laws and his brother went there to see him.
Kamaruzzaman was shifted to Dhaka Central Jail from Kashimpur Jail on Tuesday.
On Monday, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence against the Jamaat leader.
On May 9, 2013, the International Crimes Tribunal-2 (ICT-2) awarded capital punishment to the Jamaat assistant secretary for his crimes against humanity during country’s Liberation War in 1971.
He was found guilty in 3rd and 4th charge brought against him for mass killing in Shohagpur village of Sherpur district and murder of Golam Mostafa.
