Murders, Rapes, Mob lynching: Decades-Long Misrule of the Secular Ruling Class is the cause of this Social Unrest
Only the Khilafah State on the basis of Taqwa will ensure Safety and Justice for the People
Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Bangladesh, today (Friday, 26th July, 2019) have organized protest gatherings at various mosques in Dhaka and Chittagong in the context of recent spate of murder, rape and mob lynching to urge people to remove this current secular regime whose decades long misrule is the cause of this social unrest and to establish the Khilafah Rasidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the basis of taqwa (piety, fear of Allah) to ensure social security and justice. The speakers in the protest said that we are now witnessing extreme signs of insecurity and distrust of law among people. A series of brutal mob lynching have been happened across the country causing the death of 12 and severe injury of another 66 in last 13 days [Bangladesh Pratidin, 23rd July, 2019] and 5 killed in just one day (Saturday, 20th July). A series of rapes and murders of children, the brutal murder of husband in front of the wife in broad daylight, a murder of a defendant inside the Judge’s chamber in the court, beheaded bodies being found, etc., and then the most recent news of a man carrying the decapitated head of a 7 years old child, and `child kidnapping’ fear have multiplied the insecurity of the people by many times. Parents are afraid of losing their kids to kidnappers or of themselves falling victim to mob lynching. On the other hand, people cannot rely for justice on this corrupted regime and the secular system. In such a situation, panicked and angry mobs are being deceived by rumors to take ‘justice’ in their own hands.
The aware people realize that this social unrest did not arise overnight, but rather is the result of decades-long misrule of the ruling class and their so-called secular democratic system. This secular ruling class has not taken responsibility for the life and wealth of the people, but rather has spread corruption and partisanship into the State and the system. Justice is now hostage to money and political influence. Under this secular system a mother needs to wait for the pity of the Prime Minister to get justice for her 2-years-old daughter who was raped and murdered, one needs to wait for the PM’s order to put criminals under trial, or wait till an incident become viral on the social media, the lawyers and the court have to take actions according to the indications of regime and its entourage, and trials continue for years after years without any verdict. Then, how can the people have reliance or trust on this corrupted system. This secular system is imported from the Western kufr Capitalist system, which separate religion from State and life, i.e., its motto is Mosques belongs to Allah and the State belongs to Hasina. Thus, a tyrant like Hasina and her entourages have emerged under this system, and they have spread misrule and tyranny throughout the State. Therefore, we need to remove this secular regime and system and establish the Khilafah State which will be built on the Islamic creed and taqwa.
O Muslims! The Khilafah Rashidah on the way of the Prophethood will be built on a society based on taqwa, and as a result social crimes like rape, murder or lynching will naturally be reduced. Under this system, the ruler and the general people will follow the order and restrictions of Allah (swt) and fulfill their responsibility out of the fear of Jahannam. “Whoever has done an atom's weight of good will see it. And whoever has done an atom's weight of evil will see it.” [Surah az-Zalzalah: 7-8]. Besides, as a Shariah obligation the Khalifah (Caliph) will ensure the security of people irrespective of their race or religion. The Khilafah will eradicate corruption, partisanship and nepotism, and thus the people will not have to wait for the pity of the Head of the State to get justice, RasulAllah (saw) said, “By Him in Whose Hand is my life, even if Fatima daughter of Muhammad were to commit theft, I would have cut off her hand.” [Sahih Al-Muslim]. Hazrat Omar (ra.) flogged his son due to the crime of drinking wine and he died because of it. Ali (ra.) lost a case to a non-Muslim while he was the Khalifah. Also, the Khilafah State will stop the existing culture of injustice and the lingering trial process in judicial system. Under the Khilafah system, it is not allowed to arrest someone as a suspect and kept in prison for an undefined time or file a case against someone without any specific evidence. As there is specific law for specific crimes, so trial will be fast and fair under this judiciary. No one can be treated as a criminal until he is proven guilty. Once a verdict is given by a judge, no appeal or stay order is allowed on it, and no transfer of cases from one court to another are allowed, and so quick implementation of justice will be ensured.
The speakers ended by calling upon the Muslims: O Muslims! Bangladesh is an Islamic land. Reject the kufr secularism which is basis of this State, and do not accept rule under this secular system. Remove the secular Hasina regime and work under the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir to re-establish Khilafah Rasidah, and your long wait to see the system of truth and mercy will end soon, insha’Allah. Allah (swt) says:
* وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْقُرَى آمَنُوا وَاتَّقَوْا لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ بَرَكَاتٍ مِنْ السَّمَاءِ وَالأَرْضِ*
“Had the people of the towns believed and turned righteous, We would have opened for them the blessings of the heaven and the earth…” [Surah al-A’raf: 96].
