The Callous Statement of the Mayor of Dhaka South has exposed the Very Nature of Leaders that Secular Democracy is producing
After the last year’s sufferings from the horror epidemic of Chikungunya due to the negligence of responsibility of this current secular democratic rulers, this year the people of Bangladesh are facing a new threat of “jail and financial fine”. On 19 March, 2018, Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon in a views-exchange meeting at the Nagar Bhaban threatened that from 8th April they will run mobile courts from home to home, and if any Aedes mosquito breeding ground or eggs or larvae are found at any house, action will be taken against the house owner by financial fine or imprisonment or both.
These statements reflect the ruthless and unsympathetic state of minds of the leaders of the secular regime. It shows how disrespectful towards the citizens they are, and how they shrug off their responsibilities of ensuring comfort of the peoples’ life. It is common knowledge that the primary breeding places of the mosquito are the stagnant drainage system and the sewerage lines, and the unclean marshy public places, which are rarely maintained. People have myriads of complaints against the government for not taking effective measure to keep these public places clean. Moreover, the government does not apply adequate and standard pesticides for mosquito control. Besides, land bandits backed by the capitalist system have occupied and filled up the natural reservoirs of rainwater, the free-flowing lakes, and the government has given permission to build mega-projects and real estate businesses there, and as a result the stagnant water-bodies have become the breeding places for the mosquito. So, these secular capitalist rulers would not take the proper initiative to rescue the natural lakes, but rather they would be busy with dividing up the peoples’ tax money amongst themselves instead of taking care of the people.
This rogue government makes claims about their so called development whereas fails to rescue the capital from problem of the tiny mosquito, and blame the people for breeding of mosquito. It is time for the Ummah to bring these leaders to judgement and “fines” by abolishing their cherished irresponsible secular system of governance that can only bring sufferings to the people. Islam obliges the leaders with great responsibility for taking care of the Ummah, contravening of which will lead them to face a dire consequence in the hereafter. For this reason, there are abundant evidences in the history that show that the rightly-guided Khulafah (Caliphs) discharged their duties towards the Ummah with the utmost sincerity in fear of Allah (swt). Dawud ibn Ali reported: Umar ibn Al-Khattab, Radhiallahu 'anhu, said, “If a lost sheep under my care were to die on the banks of the Euphrates, I would expect Allah the Exalted to question me about it on the Day of Resurrection.” [Hilyat al-Awliya 137]
This Ummah is sincerely yearning for the Khilafah (Caliphate), the governing system that Allah (swt) has obliged on people, and it will be re-established soon by the leave of Allah (swt). The Khilafah state will end such secular oppressions and ensure due care and honor for the Ummah. It is, therefore, utmost for all the people of intellect to realize the fact and sincerely work for its return.
