Press Release: Aftermath of Pathankot: Seize the Hands of the Regime, as it Abandons Occupied Kashmir to the Hindu State
On 9th January 2016, the media reported Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chairing a meeting of the top civilian and military leadership of Pakistan with regards to the Pathankot incident. To fool the masses and especially Pakistan’s armed forces, the regime demanded that the Hindu state handover concrete evidence of involvement of Pakistan based elements in Pathankot incident. This is despite the fact that Pakistan’s foreign office had previously accepted receiving “leads” from India and announced that Pakistan is investigating them and Nawaz Sharif already having promised Narendra Modi that Pakistan will take decisive action against those involved in the Pathankot attack. So the regime first incriminates itself in the Pathankot incident and then fearing the backlash from the people and especially the armed forces for its capitulation before the Hindu state, it talks about concrete evidence before action is taken against groups who attack the Hindu State.
Hizb ut Tahrir warns the Muslims of Pakistan, and especially the armed forces, of the conspiracy which this Raheel-Nawaz regime is plotting to abandon the Kashmir cause and strengthening the Hindu state in the name of peace and fighting “terrorism”. Raheel-Nawaz regime’s complete surrender before the Hindu state reminds one of the treachery of America’s prior loyal agent Musharraf. A similar attack on India’s parliament in 2001 after which Musharaf announced the Kashmir Jihad as “terrorism” and banned Kashmiri militant groups from operating in Pakistan. Due to his open treachery against Islam and Muslims and his loyalty to America, Musharraf became a hated figure in Pakistan and was forced out of power. Now we witness similar circumstances where the Raheel-Nawaz regime is using the Pathankot incident and is planning to clamp down on groups focused on the Hindu state. This is because the Raheel-Nawaz regime and the Musharraf regime have the same master, America, which has asked the regime to crackdown on all groups fighting foreign occupation whether in Afghanistan or in occupied Kashmir.
O Armed forces of Pakistan! What is this we hear about the new bond of “terrorism” which supersedes the bond of brotherhood in Islam? In the name of fighting “terrorism” your noble blood is being spilled to stabilize America’s occupation of Afghanistan. In the name of fighting “terrorism” the treacherous Al Saud monarchy is putting together a coalition to oppose the noble revolution in Syria, to which your rulers are planning to commit your blood. And now in the name of fighting “terrorism” your noble blood and your strength will be used to crush the resistance struggle of the Muslims of Kashmir and strengthen your arch enemy the Hindu state.
Open your eyes and see the truth for what it is. This war on “terrorism” has caused you to abandon all ties of brotherhood which your Prophet ordered you to uphold. In its name America destroyed your influence in Afghanistan, in its name America is planning to use your strength in the Middle East and in its name America is making you bow before your arch enemy, the Hindu State. Islam compels us to be one brotherhood against our enemies, joining our rows as one hand. Remember that Allah (swt) said,
إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
“The believers are but brothers, so make settlement between your brothers. And fear Allah that you may receive mercy.” [Surah Hujarat 49:10]
And the words of your Prophet (saw):
«الْمُسْلِمُ أَخُو الْمُسْلِمِ، لاَ يَظْلِمُهُ وَلاَ يُسْلِمُهُ، وَمَنْ كَانَ فِي حَاجَةِ أَخِيهِ كَانَ اللَّهُ فِي حَاجَتِهِ، وَمَنْ فَرَّجَ عَنْ مُسْلِمٍ كُرْبَةً فَرَّجَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةً مِنْ كُرُبَاتِ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ، وَمَنْ سَتَرَ مُسْلِمًا سَتَرَهُ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ»
“A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection.” (Bukhari).
The current peace initiative with India is a plan to abandon the Muslims of Kashmir and the conspiracy brewing out of Pathankot is working towards the same end. You are the men of war, steel and weapons. Stop these rulers from betraying Allah (swt), His Messenger (saaw) and the believers. Move now, remove these traitors and replace them with the sincere leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir. Provide Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir and establish the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood which will revive the bond of brotherhood among the Muslim Ummah and use your blood and strength for the glory of Islam and Muslims. A matter which we know you greatly desire.
وَسَارِعُوا إِلَىٰ مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ أُعِدَّتْ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ
“And hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and a garden as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the righteous.” [Surah Aal-i-Imran 3: 133]
