Bangladesh is about to hang an Islamist leader

Shortly after midnight in Bangladesh (1 p.m. ET), authorities plan to hang a top Islamist figure.

Abdul Quader Mollah was sentenced in September for alleged "crimes against humanity" dating back to 1971, during the country's war for independence.

The ruling against him set off rioting in the streets and sparked a strike across the country.

    Not much is known here of this character. This news simply plays on its caption"Islamist leader" for obvious reasons. Its for Bangladeshis to deal with whatever it is.

    This is impressive!! The population of Bangladesh is predominantly Muslim. However, it is remarkable to see that they put their religion or bias aside and they are truly serving justice to this mass murderer.

      That is his goal, saywhat. I respect you enormously, and would never attack you in the way that person does.
