On 30 August 2015, two female members of Hizb ut Tahrir Bangladesh were arrested by the Detective Branch (DB) of Hasina’s government. The sisters were then presented before the court by the DB seeking 10 days remand for them. While in remand they were ruthlessly tortured for two consecutive days. All of that was taking place in the context of Hizb ut Tahrir’s massive publicity campaign to raise awareness of its upcoming online political conference on September 4 in Bangladesh under the title “Emerging Khilafah… …The Inevitable Transformation of Bangladesh’s Politics and Economy.”
Arbitrary arrests of the virtuous women members of Hizb ut Tahrir and the gruesome torture upon them was not something merely reactive and ad-hoc from this Firauni Hasina government. Rather it seems clear this is a well-thought-out ploy designed as per the instructions of Hasina’s western masters to silence the truthful voice of the party, albeit this devilish strategy will fail like all the previous ones. Apart from physical and verbal abuse of the sisters in remand by some Islam-hating DB thugs, recently it has come to light that the nightmarish torturing moments were also filmed which are being used to scare the other detainees of Hizb ut Tahrir by those psychopaths of Hasina. They thought such shameless act of arresting and torturing the women members would compel the party to call off its unique, first-ever online political conference in the history of Bangladesh that eventually took place on 4th September, even in the face of various forms of government oppression. The government even felt the heat ahead of the conference when the party’s mass contact program along with leafleting, postering and online publicity took public awareness and opinion in favor of the Islamic Khilafah system to another height. And when the regime saw that all of their scare tactics have failed and the event also successfully took place with many thousands of audience, they went completely haywire. Then immediately after the event, from sheer frustration, Hasina’s henchmen arrested eight members of the party and a father whose crimes were that his son was a brave member of Hizb ut Tahrir and he did not cooperate with the police to hand over his son to them.
Moreover, it is now evident that Hasina has got fanatical to move along the trajectory of USA’s War against Islam to keep her throne intact. Arresting and torturing the sincere Muslim women of Hizb ut Tahrir at the behest of America is nothing but a frantic move to put down the call of the party since the evils have failed to curb the male members of the party. SubhanAllah! It is the will of the Almighty that He (swt) wishes to expose the Kuffar and their puppets’ hypocrisy. When tyrant Hasina is committing gross human rights violation from which the noble female dawah carriers are also not being spared, her master Barack Obama gave her the “honor” to co-chair a summit with him on September 28 at the UN Headquarters where she called for ending all forms of violence on women and girls! While turning the entire country into a police state with widespread state violence against oppositions, Hasina was asked to co-chair this high-level summit which addressed various issues ranging from human rights to democracy and governance! Indeed! This is the real face of Democracy, which USA and her puppets of the Muslim lands are promoting. On one hand, tyrant rulers of our lands are looting our wealth while blood of Muslims is on their hands. On the other hand, they are being rewarded by their western crusader masters for their role of servants in this war on Islam.
This is the context in which Hizb ut Tahrir has become the only party in Bangladesh struggling with obvious success against the government tyranny to secure Ummah’s right. Since the farcical banning on the party in 2009, it has kept on overcoming obstacles and conspiracies one after another by the will of Allah (swt) and gained trust and love from the people. And Alhamdulillah! People have already started to look behind the façade of democracy and can perceive the western schemes to annihilate the sincere movement for the 2nd righteous Khilafah. Hence after failing continuously to keep the blessed party Hizb ut Tahrir distant from the Ummah, Hasina came up with this new venture to crush the Hizb by arresting and torturing its female members. But it has been the will of Allah Azza Wa Jal that many tyrants like Hasina came and vanished but this political party of Allah, Hizb ut Tahrir, still stands firm and steadfast in between the noble Ummah and the Kuffar along with their lowlife agents.
“Indeed, there is no fear upon the awliyaa' of Allah, nor shall they grieve, those who believe and are ever pious in their actions. To them are glad tidings in this life and in the hereafter. There is no changing the words of Allah. That, then, is the great success.” [Surah Yunus: 62-64]
