Jamaat-e-Islami has called a dawn-to-dusk countrywide hartal for Wednesday protesting the Supreme Court verdict that upheld former Al-Badr leader Mir Quasem Ali's death sentence.

Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maqbul Ahmed, announced this through an statement after the Supreme Court verdict.

The Appellate Division of the SC on Tuesday morning upheld the death penalty of Mir Quasem Ali for his crimes against humanity during the Liberation War.

A five-member bench of the SC, headed by Chief Justice SK Sinha, pronounced the judgment.
