John Kerry’s Visit to Dhaka Signifies that Bangladesh is likely the Next War Front of the U.S. in her Notorious ‘War on Terror’

The U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has spelled out his country’s ambition to extend her colonial interest in Bangladesh on his nine-hour visit to the country on Monday (29/08/2016). Before leaving Dhaka, Kerry said that he unequivocally discussed with the Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina about the connection of local militant operatives of Bangladesh with elements of the ‘Islamic State’ group (IS), and there was no argument about it with Hasina, according to Kerry. He stated before an audience that, from now on, Bangladeshi people would see ‘more U.S. presence’ here to hold joint activities and engagements with Bangladeshi forces amid mounting attacks of the IS in the South Asian region.

Kerry’s statements have made it very clear that Hizb ut Tahrir was accurate with its analysis on the July 1 Gulshan attack at the Holey Artisan Bakery. Immediately after the attack, we issued a press release to make the people aware about America’s heinous interests in this country which she wants to fulfil under the pretext of combating IS. Indeed, this is what the U.S. had been planning for some time; that is how to open a new war front in this Indo-Bangla region to tackle the imminent emergence of the second righteous Khilafah from here besides securing her geopolitical interests. After the Gulshan attack, on July 27th, the U.S. Pacific Command head Adm. Harry Harris discussed the threat of ISIS spreading into Bangladesh in his 20-minute speech to the Rebuild Japan Initiative Foundation. (Navytimes, August 3, 2016). It is of great significance when a high-ranking officer denotes this region as the possible “fifth front” for the U.S. and asks the Muslim countries of this region to cooperate with the U.S. to stop IS. And it is also clear that Hasina would bow down to materialize her U.S-Indian masters’ initiatives in her bid to secure her throne as Kerry stated, Sheikh Hasina was “very clear” in working “very closely” with the U.S.

Hizb ut Tahrir will remain resilient in front of the ongoing imperialist conspiracies in order not to let Bangladesh become another U.S. scapegoat, like Pakistan, in its evil ‘War on Terror’. We would always stand up for this beloved Ummah of RasulAllah (SAW) so as not to let her be betrayed by the agent regime. Hizb ut Tahrir strongly appeals to the people of power and influence not to aid Hasina in her obedience to the Kuffar which is a confirmed cause of destruction and loss:

﴿ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ تُطِيعُوا الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَلَى أَعْقَابِكُمْ فَتَنْقَلِبُوا خَاسِرِينَ

O you who believe! If you obey those who disbelieve, they will send you back on your heels, and you will turn back (from Faith) as losers.” [Surah Ali Imran: 149]
