Hasina Audaciously Vilified Full-Veil (Burqa) of Islam by labelling it “Meaningless” and “Live Tent”
O Muslims! Resist Attempts to Import Western-Construct “Islamophobia” into this Land

At a press conference on Sunday (June 9, 2019) at Ganabhaban, Hasina mocked at a dress code (al-burqa) of our sisters by saying that she found it “meaningless” to wear burka and said it is like a “live tent” (!). We were not surprised at all by this audacious statement of Hasina, because she is an active soldier and devotee in the “War against Islam” of her Colonial masters. When we see full-face veil ban spreads across Europe under the false pretext of “Islamic terrorism”, Hasina also started to tactfully manufacture the same “Islamophobic rhetoric” here by showing the audacity to question the legitimacy of the full-veil. In the ongoing civilizational clash between Islam and the West in which she sided with her real masters and did not shy away from concealing her malice against Islam and its followers. But it was the will of Allah Azza wa Jall that Hasina’s hypocrisy should be exposed soon after her meeting with the other traitorous rulers of the Muslim lands in the latest OIC conference where she urged others “to follow the Quran and Sunnah as prescribed by Rasulullah (saw). Since there is khair (goodness) in this Ummah for which they still long for their greater unity under the shade of the blessed Khilafah (Caliphate) and want the artificially imposed nation-state borders of the colonialists to be eradicated, treacherous Hasina simply wanted to tap into that Islamic aspirations of the Muslims by talking about “removal of divisions within Ummah” and “aiming for the values of Islam as demonstrated by Rasul-e-Kareem (saw)”, but, in reality she is like rest of the other agent rulers of the Muslims, and harbors hatred against Islam, Muslims and Islamic values, as well as the political Islam as demonstrated by Rasulullah (saw); her public slandering against ‘burqa’ is testament to that fact.

O Muslims! Hizb ut Tahrir will always be there to unmask the treachery of the agent rulers and give you right political direction towards bringing about the dignity and honor of the Muslims. So beware of the deep conspiracy of Hasina - the loyal agent of the colonialists - to import the Western-construct Islamophobia in Bangladesh as part of their wholesale attack on Ideological Islam. The attack on Islamic veil is just a prelude to an extensive “War against Islam”, which would be followed by more stringent measures in the future if that goes unchallenged.

O Muslims! By denoting ‘burqa’ as a “live-tent”, Hasina has not just attacked the ‘burqa’, but rather mocked the rule of Allah (swt)! We in Hizb ut Tahrir urge the Muslims in Bangladesh to raise a strong voice against any attempt to undermine and demonize any of our sublime Islamic values and work sincerely with this truthful party to re-establish the promised Khilafah Rasidah (rightly guided Caliphate), which will ensure a secure environment for women irrespective of their religion and races where they can live with respect and protection. Allah (swt) says:

ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ كَرِهُوا۟ مَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ فَأَحْبَطَ أَعْمَٰلَهُمْ
“That is because they hate that which Allaah has sent down (this Qur’aan and Islamic laws); so He has made their deeds fruitless” [Muhammad 47:9]
