Democracy is a Highly Fatal Disease; By Leaving this Disease Untreated, there is No Brighter Future for the Country through ‘Dialogue’ and ‘Fair Elections’
 
Hizb ut Tahrir organized Public Talks, outside major mosques in Dhaka city after Jummah prayers today, on the on-going political chaos which has turned Bangladesh into a frightening death zone due to the power-mongering and destructive politics of Awami-BNP. Speakers at the talks said the political arena, television talk shows, seminars and roundtable meetings are abuzz with the idea of ‘dialogue’ and ‘fair elections’ as a solution to this political mayhem. In truth, all these propositions address the symptoms of the problem while avoiding the root cause of it. The fact of the matter is that Bangladesh is plagued by ‘Democracy’ – a highly fatal disease for which there is no cure. By leaving this disease untreated, there is no brighter future ahead through ‘dialogue’ and ‘fair elections’ only.  

Democracy has never brought any people good governance and peace since this system bestows unfettered legislative power upon a small group of political elite as a substitute for Allah (swt). That being the case, not unexpectedly, democratic political parties’ objective becomes to anyhow gain and retain power for which they vie with one another, and the common people become victims of this Machiavellian politics.

This is in contrast to the Islamic Khilafah, where ruling is based upon the Qur’an and Sunnah and there is no room for self-interest based partisan politics. The Khaleefah, the political parties and individual politicians work together, cooperating and striving hard to fulfil the peoples’ needs instead of making their lives miserable.

The speakers called upon the people to raise the demand for Khilafah to the sincere military officers who have the material power to transform the ruling; and to aid Hizb ut Tahrir and actively participate with the party in the work of contacting and organizing the sincere military officers for the immediate removal of tyrant Hasina and the current ruling system and establishing the Khilafah.
