25 February “BDR Mutiny”

A Monument of Betrayal of Hasina Government against our Army and Sovereignty


Today marks 15 years of the Hasina government’s heinous conspiracy to weaken the country’s army that happened at the BDR (Bangladesh Rifles) headquarters in the Pilkhana of capital Dhaka. In that incident, a total of 74 people including 57 brave and talented army officers including BDR chief Major General Sakil Ahmed were killed in the name of revolt of BDR soldiers. India implemented this conspiracy with the help of Hasina government to weaken the country’s army. Recently an Indian journalist (Avinash Paliwal, an Associate Professor of International Relations at London’s SOAS University, specialized in foreign and security policy analysis with a regional focus on South Asia) wrote in the country’s leading media outlet ‘Hindustan Times’ to clarify India’s involvement. His statement revealed that India had threatened direct military intervention in Bangladesh during the BDR rebellion to prevent an operation by Bangladesh army in Pilkhana. Apart from this, to create an atmosphere of panic among the entire military, Hasina government sacked loyal military officers on various pretexts, forced them to leave their jobs through threats, and many officers had forced disappearance or were killed. The vacuum created by this in the army has since then carried on with the project of reorganizing the army as a subordinate force of India by comprehensively reforming the army. The blueprint for India’s control over the country’s military through training the army officers by the enemy state, military agreements with India, increasing aggression by Indian forces on the border is now as clear as daylight. On the other hand, due to the new relationship between USA and India, the American agent BNP alliance also played a blind role in this conspiracy and made extensive reforms within their party as well. Because, the USA is establishing India as a watchdog in the region to counter China and to counter the rise of the Khilafah (Caliphate) – the political aspirations of the Muslim Ummah. Allah (swt) says, “If they gain dominance over you, they would be [i.e., behave] to you as enemies and extend against you their hands and their tongues with evil, and they wish you would disbelieve” [Sura Al-Mumtahina: 02].

O People, the current secular ruling class, inherited from the British period, are the agents of the kafir-colonialists and they are in fact, the enemies of the country and the Muslims. So you should completely reject these secular agent groups, because they do not protect the interests of the country and do not represent the Muslims either. If we want to be freed from the clutch of Kafir-Musriks, we must unite with the sincere politicians of Hizb ut Tahrir in re-establishing the Khilafah. The Prophet ﷺ said, “The Imam (Khaleefa) is a shield under which you fight and protect yourselves” (Sahih Muslim).

O Sincere Officers in the Military, you are aware how the Hasina government is indoctrinating you to become coward instead of man to face India. A sign of which is that one of your colleagues is picked up and killed by the Indian BSF, forcing you to remain inactive in response. So you should advance in re-establishing the Khilafah under the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir by removing this agent regime, and giving Nusrah (power) to Hizb ut Tahrir for this purpose. Because only the Khilafah will make you a strong force against the enemy. Allah (swt) says,

﴿وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ وَمِنْ رِبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوَّ اللَّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَآخَرِينَ مِنْ دُونِهِمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَهُمُ اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْ وَمَا تُنفِقُوا مِنْ شَيْءٍ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ يُوَفَّ إِلَيْكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ لاَ تُظْلَمُونَ

“And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows”

[Surah al-Anfal: 60].
