International Crime Tribunal declared capital punishment to Salauddin Quader Chowdhury on its verdict on 1st October 2013. BNP earlier decided to show no reaction to the verdict. They declared no program initially. But when the verdict is announced, young Turks of BNP staged sporadic violence in the capital and the port city by burning vehicles and organizing small demonstrations. The following day local BNP Unit of Chittagong, the hometown of SQ Chowdhury observed hartal from dawn to dusk. AL ministers and leaders expressed their satisfaction over the verdict.
The verdict was leaked into the internet day/days before it was announced the judges in the tribunal that surprised many.
But the sour talk was uttered by Advocate Khondaker Mahbub Hussain, Vice President of the Supreme Court Association that the people connected with the wrong judgement will be on trial in future. Mahbub is summoned by ICT to explain his comment.
BNP declared 3rd October as the protest day and held a mass rally in Sharawardy Uddayan. They rejected the verdict and many echoed the same sentiment of Advocate Khondaker Mahbub . Farhat Quader, wife of Salauddin Quader thanked BNP for their support for her husband.
