Terrified at seeing the Enormous Public Support for the Reestablishment of the Khilafah Rasidah (Rightly Guided Caliphate), the Falling Regime of Hasina is spreading Shameless Lies against Hizb ut Tahrir and the Noble Work of reestablishing the Khilafah
On 15th December, 2018 (Saturday), fake news manufactured by the government about the arrest of someone called Mehedi Masnad Saimum from Dhaka’s Baridhara DOHS area and about alleged posters demanding of withdrawal of cases filed against photographer Shahidul Alam was published and broadcasted by some media houses without any verification. According to this “news”, the arrested person and the English and Bangla posters recovered from him and the posters pasted in a few parts of the city demanding the withdrawal of cases of Shahidul Alam, were alleged to be from Hizb ut Tahrir. We strongly condemn these blatant lies. Hizb ut Tahrir has no connection with this arrested person and the posters mentioned. We do not know who this person is and he never had any affiliation with us, and we have not undertaken and nor are we currently doing any activities for Shahidul Alam. We want to remind and advise those news media who were misled by the government that Hasina is a ruler whose ornaments are blatant lies, so spreading any news prepared by her regime without any verification and vilifying the sincere movement of Hizb ut Tahrir, the voice of this Ummah, is an immature act that will destroy your acceptance and trustworthiness amongst the people. Allah (swt) says: “And do not incline toward those who do wrong, lest you be touched by the Fire” [Surah Hud: 113].
Through our press releases, leaflets, posters, rallies and continuous interactions, the people in all sections of the society including the media are well aware of the activities that we have been and are doing. Specially for more than a month and till now, we have been doing various activities, including posters and leaflets titled “The National Election will not bring any Change to this Rule of Tyranny and the Miserable Condition of the People, the only Way of liberating the People is to reestablish the Khilafah (Caliphate) under the Leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir”, to expose the subservience of the Awami-BNP ruling elites to the imperialists in the context of the upcoming election, and providing a roadmap of how the imminent Khilafah will liberate the people from this miserable situation and achieve the status of a leading nation. The support of the people for the reestablishment of the Khilafah and that for Hizb ut Tahrir in these activities were remarkable, and it is obvious that the people are desperate to see the downfall of Hasina and her regime. So, orchestrating this evil ploy of arresting someone and using fake posters, the falling regime of Hasina and her thugs in the law enforcement agencies are spreading shameless lies against the Deen of Allah (swt) and the noble work of re-establishing the Khilafah Rasidah.
The tyrant Hasina should know that for reestablishing the Khilafah, Hizb ut Tahrir meticulously follows the way of RasulAllah (saw), so what might be to her an innovative approach against us is nothing new for us at all, because our Prophet (saw) and His (saw) movement faced similar propaganda from the Quraish ruling elites who conspired and called Him (saw) insane, poet, or magician, but all their machinations came to nothing and the Islam State was established at Medina. In the same way, by following the way of RasulAllah (saw), Hizb-ut-tahrir will be able foil all these evil ploys and achieve the objective of reestablishing the Khilafah Rasidah, insh’Allah. Allah (swt) says,
وَقُلْ جَاءَ الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا
“And say, Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood [by nature] ever bound to depart. [Surah: Al-Israa: 81]
