Bangladesh executed another top leader of  Jamaat-e-Islami Mir Quasem Ali, for alleged war crimes in 1971.

Earlier, the Bangladesh Supreme Court rejected his final appeal against penalty on Tuesday. Ali had declined to seek a presidential pardon.

Past convictions and executions of high-profile JI leaders triggered violence in Bangladesh, which is polarised along political lines.

Pakistan has expressed its deep sadness over the execution of prominent leader of Jamat-e-Islami, Bangladesh Mir Quasem Ali.

In a statement in Islamabad, Foreign Office said the government of Bangladesh should uphold its commitment, as per the Tripartite Agreement of 1974, wherein it "decided not to proceed with the trials as an act of clemency."

It said the act of suppressing the Opposition, through flawed trials, is completely against the spirit of democracy.

The Foreign Office said Pakistan is deeply saddened over the execution of Mir Quasem Ali, for the alleged crimes committed before December 1971, through a flawed judicial process.
