The Regime’s Newly Invented Narrative against Hizb ut Tahrir is Doomed to Failure

For the past week or so, the government and some lying media outlets have been conducting a newly invented propaganda narrative against Hizb ut Tahrir. They have taken on the characteristic of the Yahud i.e. that of mixing truth with falsehood in order to give a semblance of truth to this narrative; they say Hizb ut Tahrir which has no record of undertaking any acts of violence has now started carrying out cover killing operations! We say the people will not believe their falsehood just because they admit the truth that the Party has so far not undertaken any violent acts because the people are intelligent enough to see through their deceptions. Not to mention that the people are very aware that Hizb ut Tahrir does not undertake any material actions due to it’s absolute adherence to the non-violent methodology of RasulAllah (saw) in it’s work for bringing change. The rejection of this narrative by the people is evident from their rush and eagerness in receiving the Special Call issued by the Party on 17th June. In fact it was this campaign of Special Call which has led to the invention of this narrative. As soon as the Party started publicity campaign for the Call the government started arresting members and activists of the Party. But the campaign went on and then came the 17th of June when the Party did in fact deliver the Call to the people and the hundreds of thugs of the government in the security services and the ruling party failed to prevent it. So the government resorted to this false narrative hoping to create distractions in the minds of the people regarding the Party, it’s Call and it’s method but the people have rejected it as we stated and it is not needed for us to clarify anything to the people regarding our Call and our method.

However we do have some words for those in the media who are aiding the government in spreading this propaganda against the Party. We call upon them to refrain from publishing lies and acting as mouthpieces of the regime, particularly in this blessed month of Ramadan. O Sincere Journalists! You are Muslims and you are fasting in this month. We remind you of what RasulAllah (saw) said,

“…And pity on the man who enters into Ramadan and does not have all his of sins forgiven before its passing…” (Tirmidhi, Ahmad, Al-Hakim)

Why then are you becoming steeped in sin in this month of forgiveness? We advise you as brothers to desist from this sinful act of lying and deceiving; for the sake of Allah, for the sake your fasts, and for your own good in the Akhira. If you will not be activists of the Islamic dawah, then at least do not become activists for the government against it.

As for the government, we say regarding it -

  1. That it is spineless against the imperialists. We have clearly stated in our Special Call that it is America and the imperialists who are behind the covert killing operations. But due to it’s cowardice and subservience to them, it is motionless against them, it acts as a mouse in front of them while acting brave against the people and making up lies against her sincere sons in Hizb ut Tahrir.

  2. That it is intellectually and politically bankrupt in front of the Party’s Call. It is acting like the chiefs of the Quraysh who carried out all forms of oppression and propaganda against RasulAllah (saw) and His Sahabah instead of facing the intellectual challenge of Islam. All they needed to do to refute the Islamic Call is to produce a Surah like that of the Qur’an as Allah (swt) challenged them to do but they did not do this. Why doesn’t the government or any of it’s members come up and address the nation with an alternative call to that of Hizb ut Tahrir by using the media means and all other means available to it, of which it has plenty? It doesn’t do so because it doesn’t have any. No! It doesn’t even have the intellectual and political capabilities for that.

So fie on them! Let it carry on with it’s dirty work of upholding falsehood and we will be carrying on with our noble work of advocating the truth. And Islam and the truthful Islamic Call will prevail over it’s falsehood.

(بَلْ نَقْذِفُ بِالْحَقِّ عَلَى الْبَاطِلِ فَيَدْمَغُهُ فَإِذَا هُوَ زَاهِقٌ)

Nay, We hurl the truth against the falsehood, so it destroys it, and behold it (falsehood) is vanished.” [Surah Anbiyah: 18]
