O Muslims!Reject and Resist the Implementation of Defence Cooperation Deal with India… It is Decisively Haram, not binding on the Muslims of the Country nor the Officers in the Military… All Relationships with India Must be establishedSolely upon Islamic Foreign and Defence Policies
Traitor Hasina and her regime will not cease in their actions of high treachery against the country and submissiveness towards their masters, America-Britain-India. Leaders of the ruling Awami League have no issue even with giving their blood for India just as Sheikh Mujib did, as they openly and shamelessly describe their relationship with India as a “relationship of blood.” Overthrowing this regime and establishing the Khilafah under the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir is the only way to end their treachery and bring real change to the lives of the people. And right now the people have to continue to reject and resist their treacherous policies with utmost determination and effort. This is what we in Hizb ut Tahrir call upon all the sincere, aware and courageous people and military officers of the country; work hard for removing this regime and establishing the Khilafah while simultaneously struggling against the regime’s treacherous actions. Thedefence cooperation deal whichSheikh Hasina agreed to during her visit to India (from 07-10 April, 2017),whether it was referred to as a treaty or a MoU and whether it was for the duration of 5 years or 25, it must be rejected and it’s implementation has to be resisted by the people and the officers in the military. This agreement is decisively haram; and it will weaken our military and establish Indian domination over them.
RasulAllah (saw) prohibited the Muslims from concluding military treaties with other states in clear and specific language when he (saw) said, “Do not seek light with the fire of the polytheists.” In other words do not make the polytheists’ fire a light for you. In the hadith the use of the word fire is an indication for military power. So military treaties and alliances with disbelieving states are haram in the shari’ah; and this prohibition is exclusive i.e. not linked with others, so we do not link it with water sharing or trade etc, thus it is not said that if they signed Teesta treaty or whatever other treaties to our interests then we will sign defence deal with them.Rathermilitary treaties are a category of their own and signing military treaties are haram, full stop. Furthermore, this defence deal with India will establish their domination over our military and this is prohibited. And it is political suicide. The Pilkhana killings and purging of bright army officers by Hasina at the behest of India-USAis clear evidence of their intentions of weakening our defence forces and dominating over them. Allah (swt) has forbidden the Muslims from allowing the disbelievers to have influence over them,
“Never will Allah make for the disbelievers over the believers a way.” [Surah An-Nisa: 141]
India is an enemy state as described by Allah (swt) and no matter how much the regime tried to portray her as a friendly nation, a close neighbour or with other flowery terms this description will not change,
“Verily, you will find the strongest among mankind in enmity to the believers, the Jews and those who are polytheists.” [Surah Al-Maidah: 82]
She is hostile to us and her hands are full with the blood of Muslims, many of them are from Bangladesh. And she is anoccupying enemy,just like the Jewish state of Israel, due to her occupation of our land – Kashmir.Kashmir is an Islamic land, thus it is our land and while Kashmir remains occupied by India then her millions of dollars in credit cannot buy us, or compensate us for our martyrs nor can she sever our Islamic bond with Kashmir,even if she did not have any evil designs and aggressive policiestowards Bangladesh. By our Islamic obligation, the Muslims of Bangladesh and her military are obligated to liberate Kashmir from the Indian enemy, not sign any kinds of deals with her let alone military deals with this fiercest enemy of Islam.
This was the Islamic perspective on this defence deal with India which the Muslimshave to comply with. And from the perspective of reality also this deal represents a great dangerand it is against our interests:
- This deal falls within the framework of strategic partnership between crusader America and polytheist India to establish their hegemony in the region. As part of that America is enhancing India’s military capability by transferring sophisticated military technology and building its military industry.The U.S. wants India to be her policeman in this region to contain China (called Asian Pivot strategy) and delay the emergence of the second Khilafah (Caliphate) Rashidah state (called Counter Terrorism strategy).That is why the Americans are working to create a coalition of countries in the region led by India to counter balance the power of China and pursue the war on Islam under the guise of defeating terrorism and violent extremism.
- It is a big strategic blunder to procure TATA/Maruti standard low-grade military equipment from India.
- By joint trainings with our military India will acquire valuable information on our military strategies and capabilities that will give her a strategic advantage to fight us and take an upper hand over our army.
- Hasina and her masters purposefully seek to weaken the Islamic spirit of our military through various malicious means and this deal will be greatly facilitating that. Last year we have witnessed the Rakhibondhon at some border areas where BSF female soldiers tied ‘sacred’ wristband around the hands of Bangladeshi male soldiers who on the other hand vowed to protect them!
- It will lead to distancing China from Bangladesh (currently the major supplier of military hardware to the country) and make Bangladesh permanently dependent on India who is the foremost enemy statearound us from three sides.
All our relationships with India must be based solely upon Islam. The Islamic aqeedah is the fundamental doctrine of our foreign and defence policies, and only Islam defines our identity, not Bangladeshi or Bengali Nationalism. Islam dictates that we bring India back under Islamic rule as it once was an Islamic land and this is the sure way to bring an end to Indian aggression.Like the general Muslims in Bangladesh, the officers and soldiers inour militaryforce have always held the Islamic spirit to conquer India through jihad and liberate Kashmir from Indian oppression.We should build our own war based industries to strengthen thisforce in every possible way to achieve this and this will materialize under the leadership of the coming Khilafah, insha’Allah. RasulAllah (saw) said, “An army of yours will invade India and Allah will grant it’s conquest to them, until they bring their kings in chains, and Allah will forgive them their sins. Then they will return and when they return, they will find the son of Maryam in ash-Shaam (Syria).” But Hasina’s subservient government is systematically carrying out every possible action to eradicate all traces of Islam from this force. Along with this evil cultural plot, now comes the disgraceful military cooperation deal to make our military weaker and dominated upon by India.
Don’t keep silent, raise your voice against these treacherous activities, and create opinion in your family, in your office, in the market and the wider public… and the intellectual and political arena… to hold the regime accountable. And remember the BNP alliance only opposes India to capture public sentiment for their political gains. So do not look to them for a way out; rather you adopt only Islam to dispose your affairs and rush to establish the second Khilafah Rashidahstate to change your condition and liberate you from the clutches of evil foreign powers.
O the Sincere Officers in the Military!
RasulAllah (saw) said,
“Every man from the Muslims is on a post of the posts of Islam, he has to protect Islam from his post and not allow defeat from his post.”
We call upon you to use your posts for the sake of Islam, to establish the Islamic rule and do not allow the imperialist kafir-mushrik states to have a way over you. Your work is to fight and defeat the enemies of Islam - America-Britain-India, to protect Islam and the Muslims, to spread the justice of Islam to the world… You are not to become friends of kafir-mushrik states, let alone being dominated upon by them which this secular democratic regime commands you with. So bravely declare to this regime, ﴿فَلَنْ أَكُونَ ظَهِيرًا لِلْمُجْرِمِينَ﴾“I will never be an assistant for the criminals.” [Surah Al-Qasas: 17].
Do you not see that Hasina drags you towards humiliation and leading you to destruction? Rethink your position,as you are the descendants of Mohammed bin Kashim and BakhtiyarKhalji who liberated the oppressed people of this subcontinent and ruled for five hundred years. So your position is not asan employee of the state such as a government secretary or a professor of a public university or the like.Rather you hold material power in your hand enabling you to bring change to the status quo, to overthrow the regime… Come; use your position of power for the sake of your deen, Al-Islam.Rush to depose treacherous Hasinaand give Nusrah to Hizb ut Tahririn order to establish the second Khilafah Rashidah which will lead you towards conquering India… Remember, RasulAllah (saw) said, “Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords.”
