Former Adviser to the President of Bangladesh M Mukhlesur Rahman Chowdhury has called for an “independent inquiry” into the death of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, who died aged 67 after collapsing in a Cairo court on Monday.
Former Bangladeshi Minister Mukhles Chowdhury expressed deep condolence on the sudden death of first elected President of Egypt Dr Mohamed Morsi, who has been happened to be a Hafiz of Quran (memorized holy Quran) 40 years ago. Chowdhury prayed to Allah for martyred Dr Morasi to place him in one of the highest Maqam in Jannatul Firdaus and for ability of patience for Dr Morsi’s family in this time in need.
Morsi, who was buried on Tuesday, was a top figure in the Muslim Brotherhood and the first democratically elected president in Egypt’s modern history, Al Jazeera reports.
Dr Morsi had been in jail since he was toppled by the military in 2013 after mass protests against his rule. His death has been mourned by many people around the world, including in Turkey where mosques held special prayers on Tuesday, while leaders in Malaysia and Qatar offered tributes.
However, the reaction has been largely muted in many capitals.
Here are some of the statements on the sudden death of Morsi:
Mohamed Morsi’s death: World reaction: Malaysia, Qatar pay tribute to former Egyptian president, but reaction from other governments has been largely muted.
UN rights office calls for ‘transparent investigation’
The United Nations human rights office has called for a “prompt, impartial, thorough and transparent investigation” into Morsi’s death.
“Concerns have been raised regarding the conditions of Mr. Morsi’s detention, including access to adequate medical care, as well as sufficient access to his lawyers and family, during his nearly six years in custody,” Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said on Monday.
Tunisia’s Ennahda party
The Tunisian Ennahda political party said it received the news with great sadness and shock and extended condolences to Morsi’s family and the Egyptian people.
The movement expressed hope that “the painful incident would be a reason to put an end to the suffering of thousands of political prisoners in Egypt” and for starting dialogue for a new democratic political life in Egypt.
