Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that 300 people could get the death penalty in Bangladesh on Friday.
Erdogan called on Bangladeshi people to carry on the political struggle.
"May God give the Bangladeshi people strength."
Erdogan phoned Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the death sentence given to Abdul Quader Mollah of Jamaat-e Islami party and asked Hasina to prevent the execution on Thursday.
Mollah was executed on Thursday night after Bangladesh's Supreme Court handed him the death penalty on September 17 for the crimes allegedly committed during the 1971 independence war from Pakistan.
