Message from Hizb ut Tahrir to the People in General, Especially to the Sincere Politicians, Intellectuals and Influential People
Do not waste your Time and Effort on Issue-Based Movements, Rather unite on the One-Point Demand of Re-establishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) by removing the Current Secular Ruling Class and the Capitalist System
You are witnessing that the country and the people are going through many crises and misery at this moment, from which no one is spared.
First, people are facing unprecedented livelihood crises as a result of poor health care system and inhumane lockdown. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, the ruling party and some corrupt capitalists have looted thousands of crores of taka allocated for purchasing medical supplies and vaccines, establishing hospitals and providing business incentives, without improving the medical services at all. As a result, many patients are dying in the hospital only due to lack of high-flow oxygen and ICU. You are witnessing how the present government has kept the capitalists’ industries out of the lockdown and razed the small businesses to the ground, and unleashed their hooligan police forces on the daily earners who have come out for survival.
Second, large populations are struggling to meet their basic needs as a result of crippled economy and rising commodity price due to the corruption of ruling class many of them are in debt, some are starving with empty stomach, while some are seen to choose the path of suicide.
Third, student’s education is being ruined, the highly educated are facing massive unemployment due to lack of employment opportunity, and the younger generation is getting frustrated.
Fourth, Islam and religious Muslims have become the special target of this current regime – the blind follower of secularism; so the government has imposed restrictions on Tarabi prayer and Iftar ceremonies on the pretext of Covid-19 infection during this holy month of Ramadan, and when the workers protested to reduce working hours for fasting and praying in the month of Ramadan in Bashkhali of Chittagong, the police fired indiscriminately on them and killed at least seven people and injured many of them.
Fifth, as a result of arbitrary harassment-arrest and disappearance-murder by the security forces, and extortion, oppression and rape-culture of the ruling party goons, there is widespread insecurity and panic among the common people.
Sixth, the sovereignty of the people is being threatened by the growing dominance of Kafir-colonialists over the country’s economy, politics and military; because these colonialists are plundering the wealth of Muslims all over the world with the help of their puppet Muslim rulers, shedding blood of Muslims everywhere, even attacking our beloved messenger (SAW) and holy places of the Muslims.
The people of the country are carrying out political movements for the protection of their fundamental rights, Aqeedah, and sovereignty, and being subject to ruthless oppression by the rogue government forces. You must not have forgotten the safe road movement of the tender-aged students and how they rejected the current political leadership and demanded state reformation. Not only the police-BGB were deployed to suppress their movement, but also the cadres of the ruling party resorted to raping students! The people have not yet forgotten the repression of the anti-quota movement, the massacre of protesters demanding protection of Aqeedah in Shapla Chattar, and the recent indiscriminate firing on the anti-Modi movement activists. You must remember that Abrar Fahad, a meritorious student of BUET, was brutally beaten to death by the ruling party goons for his anti-Indian Facebook post.
Despite all these repressions, the people have continued their protests ignoring any fear. So the government has set up bunkers and machine guns in the police stations to maintain the fear among the public as if it is preparing for war against its own people.
It is clear why the Hasina government has taken a stand against the country and the people. Due to anti-state and anti-Muslim activities, Hasina government has lost the support and confidence of the masses and become hostile to the people, and now it is showing extreme violence in suppressing the people. Kafir colonial countries, especially the US-UK-India are openly supporting her, because she is ignoring the sovereignty of the people and giving them all the opportunities to establish their control over the country’s economy, geopolitics and military.
But the question arises, why are our sons in the security and military forces not taking a stand for the people though their responsibility is to ensure the security and sovereignty of the people? The Hasina government is protecting its own throne by deploying the country’s security forces against the people. In fact, under current capitalist system, the ruling class is cunningly using the country’s security and military forces as mercenaries in the name of defending the constitution and the chain of command. As a result, this tyrannical regime is surviving with their support.
O sincere politicians, intellectuals and influential people, you are witnessing in the media that the secular politicians and intellectuals are presenting the rescue of “freedom of speech and democracy” as a way out of current predicament and crisis. They claim that if the government is elected through democratic process and the freedom of speech is ensured, then the regime can be held responsible and accountable for their actions. However, it is secularism and the democratic system that produce oppressive rulers. Because, in this secular system the ruling class is the owner of the sovereign power and they are the legislator. They oppress people by enacting laws according to their whims and remain above the law, and the capitalists also become monsters under this system. . In secularism, the Creator has been excluded from politics and the state, so politicians have no accountability to the Creator. The purpose of this politics is only to get rich, to abuse power, and to have impunity from all corruptions and misdeeds.
You know that these secular politicians are the puppets of the kafir colonial states and are allowed to act as their collaborator and mediator in our internal affairs. These states are openly supporting all the oppressive democratic or authoritarian or democratic dictators in the Muslim world in order to achieve their own economic and geopolitical interests and strengthen their dominance over the country.
You should ask yourselves what can be achieved other than wasting of time and effort by making demands to the government which is constantly ignoring the just rights and demands of the people and mercilessly suppressing their movements?
Moreover, the capitalist secular system has plunged the entire world into perpetual misery along with the Muslim states. So, how can any movement be successful and bring permanent solution to the problems of the people when it is based on secularism and democracy imposed by the Kafir colonialists? Because, these are the root causes of mankind’s problems.
O sincere politicians, intellectuals and influential people, Islam must be taken as the basis for solving the problems of mankind, Allah (SWT) says: “And We have not sent you (O Prophet) except as a mercy for the whole world” [Al-Anbya: 107]. And in order to establish Islam, we have to follow the guidance of the Prophet (SAW), because: “Indeed, there is excellent example for you in the Messenger of Allah” [Al-Ahzab: 21]. Then our movement will be successful and there will be a lasting solution to the problems of the people.
Hizb ut Tahrir is that leadership, who are sincerely working for reviving and guiding people with Islam throughout the world under the leadership of the eminent Islamic scholar ’Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah. Hizb ut Tahrir is the party which has correct method to solve the problems of mankind by Islam. Islam views any problem as a human problem and does not consider religion, race, color or ethnic group in this regard. Islam ensures the basic needs of its citizens, such as: food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, and security, and confirms dignity and assure justice at home and abroad, and stays alert for helping and rescuing the oppressed. The monetary system based on gold and silver distinguishes the Islamic economic system so that no one can control its value, as is the case with paper money, which ultimately leads to the elimination of inflation. Shari’ah prohibits usury, bribery, fraud and monopoly business, and does not allow the rich to establish authority over the poor. The Islamic ruling system is the Khilafah system where the sovereignty belongs to the Shariah, and the ruling authority belongs to the Ummah. Muslims give allegiance to the Khaleefah (Caliph) on the condition that they will be governed by the Book of Allah (SWT) and the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW), and can convey the message of Islam as a protection of Islamic laws and as a guidance and enlightenment for the whole world. The Khaleefah (Caliph) is chosen by the Ummah on the condition that he will implement the Shari’ah on behalf of the Ummah, and he will perform his duty like a shepherd and remain accountable for his responsibilities to the Ummah. The Prophet (SAW) said, “The Imam (caliph) is the guardian and he is responsible for the citizens” [Bukhari/Muslim]. Hizb ut Tahrir has drafted a constitution based on the Qur’an and Sunnah to govern the Khilafah state by Islam, and have detailed the government and administrative structures of the Khilafah state.
Apart from creating public opinion in favor of the Khilafah system according to the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) through political and intellectual movements, Hizb ut Tahrir is urging the sincere and respected officers of the military to take a stand on behalf of Islam and the people. Alhamdulillah, they are also responding to this warm call.You know that the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) gave glad tidings about the return of the Khilafah and his (SAW) good news is the revelation of Allah: “…then there will be a forceful rule, it will last for as long as Allah wills, then He (SWT) will remove it, then there will be Khilafah on the method of Prophethood” [Musnad Ahmad];. Through your work this good news will be carried out and the Khilafah Rashidah will be re-established again inshaAllah.
O people of the country, especially the sincere politicians, intellectuals and influential people, Hizb ut Tahrir urges you to unite under the one-point demand of re-establishing the Khilafah by removing the present secular ruling class and capitalist system without wasting time and effort behind the issue-based movements.
Participate in the political and intellectual activities for re-establishing the Khilafah Rashidah and generate strong public opinion in favor of the Khilafah system, and urge the military officers who are your children, relatives and acquaintances, to remove the current regime and hand over the power to Hizb ut Tahrir. Allah (SWT) says:
“O you who believe! Answer the call of Allah and His Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life.” [Surah Al-Anfal: 24]
