Despite severe torture, hardships and strict ban, Hizb-ut-Tahrir (the Party of Liberation), since its establishment in 1953 in Al-Quds (Jerusalem), continues to work effectively and tirelessly in more than 50 countries with a sole purpose of bringing intellectual and systematic revival among the Muslim Ummah.
The party aims and strives to restore Islamic Khilafah State, unifying all the Muslim under a Caliphate ruled by Islamic law with a Caliph as Head of the State, elected by Muslims.
The party has adopted and follows the most peaceful method of Prophet S.A.W to bring about a revolution and actual change in the society as Rasool SAW did with constant years of struggle in Makkah.
Hizb-ut-Tahrir firmly believes that Islam could not be restored to its actual by getting involved in Democracy or Terrorism, ruling out the use of bullet and ballot for a real change. The major allegations on the party includes, showing dissatisfaction on the policies of the government, distributing leaflets against the unacceptable policies all across the country and penetrating in the Pakistan Army.
We all know that showing concerns over the government policies is the right of every citizen and one would wonder how distribution of the pamphlets and leaflets in the general public scould ever be termed as terrorism or sectarianism. Similarly, the soldiers of Pakistan Army are also Muslims, they are not aliens, so why not carry a good and rational message to them?
After a deep study about the aims and objectives of Hizb-ut-Tahrir, being a student of Journalism, I call upon the members of civil society, media persons, lawyers, judges and sensible persons of the society to take a principle stand against the unreasonable ban on Hizb-ut-Tahrir in Pakistan, the global Islamic group which categorically rejects the use of weapons and carrying out a peaceful political struggle since its formation.
I appeal the rational-minded media persons, people of law and others, on humanitarian grounds, to force the authorities for an immediate recovery of Hizb’s spokesman for Pakistan Naveed Butt, compelling the government to provide justification on his abduction. People in Pakistan rigorously demand the authorities to lift a ban from Hizb-ut-Tahrir.
