Mr. Adnan Oktar launched a serious campaign on social media regarding the verdict to execute Abdelqader Mollah, one of the leaders of the Jamaat-e-Islami, in Bangladesh. Following this, many people including high authorities in Turkey have supported this call.
Thanks to Mr. Adnan Oktar, Turkey has demonstrated great efforts to stop the execution while the US and European countries have chosen to keep silent. Sayyid Munawwar Hassan, leader of Pakistan's Jamaat-e-Islami, commented that everyone but Turkey kept silent.

ADNAN OKTAR: Let’s say #Bangladeshstopexecution. Because this is great violence, and it is a sign of their ignorance, recklessness and immorality; capital punishment has been abolished in most of the world. Why the need? And which crime did he commit? On what grounds are you executing him? Everywhere people must press the issue. These impertinent people think that the world is adrift.

ADNAN OKTAR: They were going to hang Abdulqader Mollah yesterday; only three or four hours were left. We launched a hashtag campaign right at that moment, as soon as I got the news. Thanks to Allah, it was immediately the top trend in the world shortly thereafter. Bangladesh got the news immediately. Their intelligence brought the news that the whole world is against this; they panicked and delayed the execution. They were going to hang him silently. If we did not interfere, only three or four hours were left, it would be over. No one in the world showed any objections until that moment. Until my objection, there were no other objections. Dead silent; there were only very weak noises. Praise be to Allah; Allah created such power and means. It is amazing that we got such support throughout the world. And in short time, it remained as a trending topic. Thanks to Allah, masha’Allah.

ADNAN OKTAR: No one knew about the execution until only three hours were left. I heard and immediately took action and after that all our brothers gave their support. Everyone was really enthusiastic about it and then it was heard all around Turkey. But we only managed to get them to postpone the execution for a while, and that's it. But still we got them to assume liability for their brutality.
