Hizb ut Tahrir holds Online Political Conference on the Concrete Changes the Khilafah State will bring in the Political and Economic System of the Country
Hizb ut Tahrir, Wilayah Bangladesh, successfully live streamed a unique online political conference from Dhaka today under the title “Emerging Khilafah… …The Inevitable Transformation of Bangladesh’s Politics and Economy.” Coupled with individual viewings, the people also gathered in groups to watch the conference which was streamed on www.livestream.com/emergingkhilafahbd; attached are a selection of pictures received by us at the media office of the party which demonstrate the collective desire of the people for the return of the Khilafah.
The conference started with recitation from the Holy Qur’an, after which the first two speakers delivered speeches on key issues and questions related to the Emerging Khilafah. Their topics were respectively, “Specific Policies the Khilafah will adopt to transform the Politics and Economy of Bangladesh” and “Viability of the Khilafah in the International Arena and Becoming a Leading State.” What became apparent from their Talks is the mammoth failure of the Awami-BNP rulers for the past 40 years on the one hand and the huge potential for the Ummah under the Khilafah on the other hand. The uniqueness of the Khilafah derives from the rulers’ sense of responsibility towards the people, and the political will and vision of the state emanating from Islam, all of which is lacking in the current rulers due to which the current state has turned into an organization of thieves and looters, and a manufacturer of agents for the imperialists. The ruler in the Khilafah and the entire state structure is dedicated towards solving the people’s problems in accordance with the hadith of RasulAllah (saw), “The Imam (the ruler) is a shepherd and he is responsible for his subjects.” At the same time the will and vision of the state to convey the message of Islam to the world and lead mankind with it drives the ruler to ensure a peaceful secure life for the Ummah internally and establish her leadership in the international arena.
The speaker of the third Talk on the topic of “Effective Political Programme to Remove the current Tyrant Regime and Re-establish the Khilafah” reminded the Muslims that their belief in Islam demands that their state must be based on the Islamic Aqeedah and it is not allowed for them to remain silent upon the implementation of Kufr by the current Awami-BNP regime:
فَلاَ وَرَبِّكَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّى يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ ثُمَّ لاَ يَجِدُوا فِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَرَجًا مِمَّا قَضَيْتَ وَيُسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا
“But no, by your Lord, they can have no Iman, until they make you judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept with full submission.” [Surah An-Nisa: 65]
The speaker then called the people to the following 3-point political programme:
The Islamic Aqeedah “La Ilaha Illallah, Muhammadur RasulAllah” must be the sole basis of state and politics. In other words, the Khilafah must be the only demand of the people. The false call for building a secular Bangladesh must be resisted. The corrupt kufr democratic system and the politics of the Awami-BNP alliances must be rejected.
Demand from the sincere officers in the military and organize them to overthrow tyrant Hasina and the Awami-BNP regime; and provide material support to Hizb ut Tahrir to establish the 2nd Khilafah Rashidah.
Undertake a strong political struggle against the Awami-BNP regime and the political-economic-military domination of their imperialist masters.
And work tirelessly to create a strong opinion among the people that only the Khilafah will:
Fulfil the basic needs of all men and women in the country i.e. food, clothing, shelter, health, education and security; and facilitate for them the satisfaction of their luxurious needs. Protect the non-Muslim citizens and they will enjoy all the rights as the Muslims, without discrimination.
End the rampant corruption and looting of people’s wealth.
Eradicate the gross wealth inequality by ensuring effective distribution of wealth.
Regain the ownership of public property such as oil, gas and coal etc from private and foreign hands, manage these resources for the well-being of the people and rapidly industrialize the economy based on heavy and defence industry, to achieve economic prosperity.
Build a strong military, unify the Muslim Ummah, and liberate the Muslims from imperialist aggression.
Due to the recent extraordinary developments in the War against Islam, the schedule of the conference was slightly adjusted. Instead of the Q&A session at the end, an Emergency Talk was delivered on the arrest of two dignified women members of the party on Sunday 30, August (2015). The speaker stated that tyrant Hasina and the thugs in the regime are extending the War against Islam on behalf of America and the imperialist states to include arresting and harassing the sincere and aware Muslim women of the country who work for the Khilafah. As is known from repeated statements of Bush-Blair, Obama-Cameron…, the sole motive behind the War against Islam being conducted by America and her allies is to prevent the return of the Khilafah. And they are using the rulers in the Muslim world including Hasina as nothing but cheap tools to fight their war. The speaker condemned the arrests, demanded the immediate release of the sisters and called upon the Muslims to protest the government’s actions against the sincere daughters of the Ummah.
