The JI Ameer urged Pakistan government not to keep silence on this development as the accused along with other opposition leaders are being tried for showing their loyalty to Pakistan and had actually been opposing the break up of the country. He has also urged the International Human Rights Commission and the Amnesty International take notice of the glaring human rights violations in Bangladesh.
