If a Young Muslim Lady in Karnataka can show such Courage in Defending Islam, why cannot the Muslim Rulers and Armies, despite having their Capabilities, Defend the Muslims and the Deen?

In a protest of the ban on hijab in Karnataka (India), Hizb ut Tahrir/Wilayah Bangladesh organized Jum’ah Bayan (political gatherings and speeches) at various mosque premises in Dhaka and Chittagong today, Friday (11/2/22) after Jum’a. The headline was: “If a Young Muslim Lady in Karnataka can show such Courage in Defending Islam, why cannot the Muslim Rulers and Armies, despite having their Capabilities, Defend the Muslims and the Deen?” Firstly, the speakers said that the heroic story of the bravery of our young Muslim sister Muskan in Karnataka, India covered by international and all local media, has now spread to all over the world. When the local government of Karnataka in India wanted to ban Muslim sisters from wearing hijab and the extremist Hindutva BJP supporters were preventing them from entering the college wearing hijab, the sister was chanting “Allahu Akbar” in front of the procession of extremist Hindutva activists. The sister gaining confidence chanting “Allahu Akbar” by seeking the help of Allah (swt). She challenged, “Who has the right to take away my hijab?” The courage and bravery of just one sister has inspired the entire Muslim Ummah.

Addressing the Muslims, the speakers said: The heroism of this sister teaches us how to stand up for Islam. At a time when Islamophobia is practiced all across India for many years, and Muslims are being persecuted while the rulers of the Islamic lands along with the regime in Bangladesh are silent, this sister has taught us how to stand up with courage for the sake of Allah (swt)! She ha staught us how to glorify Allah (swt) in front of the enemies of Islam! Naturally the question arises, if an ordinary Muslim girl can show such courage in defending Islam, then why do the rulers of the Muslim countries, including the regime of Bangladesh, not take the responsibility to protect Muslims and Islam despite having strong armies and sophisticated military power? Why does the Bangladesh government label the persecution of Muslims across India, including Kashmir and Assam, as an internal matter of India? Why do the regime in Bangladesh always back the Indian border forces for their killing of Muslims of Bangladesh in the border area by claiming that they do it in their self-defense? Surely you realize that the silence of these rulers is because they are agents and spineless; they never work to protect the interests of the Muslim Ummah. Islam and the interests of Muslims have never been and will never be in their consideration. Just as Muslims links all their deeds with the pleasure of Allah (swt), so these rulers link all their deeds with the pleasure of their Western masters.

Although the regime of Bangladesh remains silent on the nonstop persecution of Muslims by the Hindutvas, they become very vocal about their friendship with the enemy Mushrik State India. Sheikh Hasina recently told Modi, the butcher of Gujarat, the architect of Muslim genocide, that “Bangladesh is keen to work with India for another 50 years and more”. At a time when extremist Hindutva activists are daring to make a mockery of the command of Allah (swt) and are trying to violate Muslim women’s honor, the agent regime in Bangladesh is busy exchanging friendship and love with Islam-hating India.

O Muslim Brothers! Neither we nor our deen is safe under the ruwaibidah (incapable) rulers who have no backbone. We need a ruler like Khaleefa (Caliph) Muhtasim Billah who not only sent an army to help a Muslim woman persecuted by the Roman army, but also ensured the safety of the Muslims living there by occupying Amuria (Amorium) region of Turkey. Without the guardian of the Ummah, the Khilafah State (Caliphate), real security, justice and protection will never be achieved. The Khilafah State has never compromised with the dignity of the Muslim Ummah, especially women, no matter how weak or troubled she may have been in the past, let alone showing love to the enemies.

Finally, the speakers called upon the Sincere Officers in the Military by saying: We would also like to remind you that there is real courage and honor in glorifying Allah (swt); in saying “Allahu Akbar” in the face of the intimidation of the Kafir-Mushrik enemies like what has been done by the sister Muskan. You must learn from this sister who has no army, no military armours like you; but she stood alone with the courage to defend Islam in the face of the aggression of the polytheists, relying on Allah (swt). There are countless brave Muslims in the houses of the Ummah who area waiting – when will come forward to defend Islam? When will you restore the only shield of the Muslims i.e. the “Khilafah” to protect the oppressed Muslims of the world including India, Arakan, and Palestine? This Ummah is also waiting to stand shoulder to shoulder with you to strengthen and defend Islam.

You must withdraw your support from this puppet regime immediately and give nussrah (material support) for reestablishing the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly-guided Caliphate). Fulfill your shariah obligation to protect the honor of the Muslims by bringing back the Khilafah State promised by the Messenger . Allah (swt) says,

*يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ*

“O you who believe, respond to Allah and the Messenger when He calls you to what gives you life.” [Surah al-Anfal: 24]
