History is witness that 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. Bangladesh is not the only country to reflect such a picture; rather Europe and America depict the same scenario. In his book, ‘The Test of Our Times: America Under Siege...and How We Can Be Safe Again’, Tom Ridge, former Homeland Security chief under Bush administration, admitted that he was pressured to raise the nation's terror alert level just before the 2004 presidential election as an effort to influence the vote. Across the world, this is the same picture of democracy, which is nothing but a useful tool of the elites to make their fortune.
Oh sincere and aware intellectuals!
Hizb ut Tahrir, calls upon you to desist from distracting the people with the vague and impractical term ‘real democracy’ as a solution to the destructive politics Awami-BNP. Till today the world never witnessed any such thing as ‘real democracy’, whereas the Islamic ruling system, the Khilafah state had ruled over the world for more than 1300 years. Hence if you indeed seek the well-being of the people, then bring forth the discussion of the Khilafah ruling system as an alternative and help Hizb ut Tahrir in creating public opinion for this. The sincere and aware members and activists of Hizb ut Tahrir are ready and willing to meet with you to discuss and present the details of the Khilafah system.
How much longer will you let this western-backed Awami-BNP politics betray you? When Islam is the only Deen acceptable to Allah (swt), then why do you every time choose those who rule by other than what He (swt) has revealed? Replacing one government by another while keeping the Kufr democratic system in place will not bring an end to the oppressive ruling. Therefore, we call upon you to raise the demand for Khilafah to the sincere military officers who have the material power to transform the ruling -
- Make your family members, relatives, friends and acquaintances who are officers in the military aware about the obligation of the Khilafah and call upon them to give their Nusrah (material support) to Hizb ut Tahrir to establish it.
- Aid Hizb ut Tahrir and actively participate with it 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.
"But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. Qur'an) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection." [Surah Ta-Ha: 124]
