A Special Call to the Nation from Hizb ut Tahrir, Wilayah Bangladesh
O People! Work for the Downfall of this Regime and Establish the Khilafah (Caliphate) to Become a Leading Nation in the World with Honour and Might
As per the Party’s announcement, Hizb ut Tahrir, Wilayah Bangladesh made a Special Call to the nation today (Friday, 17/06/2016). Members and activists of the Party distributed thousands of copies of the Call to the people across the country. It was a vigorous campaign; they delivered the Call to the Ummah at prominent mosques after Jummah prayers including the national mosque, Bait ut Mukarram, Gulshan Central Mosque (Azad masjid) and others. Thereafter, they took to the streets and distributed it to the people en masse, wherever there was a collective gathering of people; pictures of their work are attached. Audio version of the Call is available here - https://youtu.be/YNZQ92XFK6o. Hizb ut Tahrir calls upon the sincere and aware thinking people of the country to respond to the Call and convey it to all those whom they can reach, particularly the Sincere Officers from the military.
As for the content of the Call, after mentioning in it the critical issues faced by the people at present under the Oppressive rule of Sheikh Hasina and democratic system, the Party directed the people to the work to be undertaken by them in order to correct their affairs, in these words - O Muslims! We say to you: Revolt! Revolt against this un-Islamic regime and undertake a vigorous political struggle for it’s downfall. Establish the second Khilafah Rashidah state to become a Leading Nation in the world with Honour and Might.
This corrupt, treacherous and Godless regime’s vision of becoming a middle-income country is indeed a stingy vision because it is greedy when it comes to itself and miserly when it comes to the people. Why is it offering you this deceptive vision while you have the potential to become a prosperous and mighty Leading State which Allah (swt) has determined to be as your true status in the world, (كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ) “You are the Best of peoples ever raised up for mankind…”? It is because this regime is corrupt to the core and it only knows to loot your wealth and resources for itself while giving you a meagre portion and that too in order for you to not revolt against it.
The party also provided a brief outline of the ascending Path the Khilafah will follow to achieve for the Ummah this noble and high status in the world -
Firstly, the Khilafah state will build itself as a strong and cohesive entity.
Secondly, the Khilafah state will unify the Muslim countries, which will make the Khilafah into a formidable power. This unity of the Ummah is possible and practicable particularly at this time when we are witnessing the vigorous demand of the Muslims from Indonesia to the Sham for living under the Khilafah.
Thirdly, the Khilafah will regain India under the Islamic rule. The current regime has turned Bangladesh into a subservient state of India. The Khilafah will reverse this state of affairs and if not at the outset, then after unification with the Muslim countries of this region the Khilafah will regain India under the Islamic rule and this is how the Indian aggression will be brought to an end permanently. With India under her authority, the Khilafah will be the number one state in this region.
Fourthly, the Khilafah will break the global dominance of crusader America - The Americans are on the back foot in global affairs. In these circumstances, challenging and breaking American dominance isn’t a difficult matter at all. The Khilafah will challenge her and chase her until the global political and economic order is reshaped where the Khilafah is the Leading state.
Establishing the Khilafah is not only for achieving prosperity and high status in the world. It is an Islamic obligation. It is not permitted for the Muslims to live under and be ruled by a ruling system other than the Khilafah system. And for however long they remained living under and being ruled by a ruling system other than the Khilafah then their living under such a system would be a life in Jahiliyyah and their dying under such a system would be a death of Jahiliyyah i.e. they would be greatly sinful. RasulAllah (saw) said,
“Whoever dies without having the bay'ah on his neck he would die the death of Jahiliyyah.” (Muslim)
Finally the party addressed the people of power saying,
“O People of Power!
Allah (swt) sent Islam to become the dominant way of life in the world,
(هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ)
“It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Deen of truth to make it dominate over all other deen even though the Mushrikun hate (it).” [Surah At-Taubah: 33]
As officers of the Muslim Military, the task of establishing Islam in authority and raising the banner of Islam high in the world falls upon your necks more as you are more capable due to the material power that you possess in your hands. Your ‘Swords of Honour’ should be a source of honour for you, not a source of dishonour by serving this kufr regime whose rulers meet with occupiers of al-Aqsa! Does this not make your blood boil? How much longer will you be used as tools of the western colonialists and mushrik India for meager worldly benefits? Don’t you see that the people are refugees in their own land? It is a must for you to bring the Ummah out of this tyranny and the subservient colonial system, and restore her glory. March forth to make Islam victorious in This Land. March forth to liberating the Muslims from the aggressor enemies, the Jews and the Mushriks, the Americans and the Europeans, and making Islam dominant in the world. March forth O Sincere Officers, bring down this regime and give the Nusrah to Hizb ut Tahrir for establishing the second Khilafah Rashidah…”
