Press Release : Demonstrations by Hizbut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan Calling for Islam and its Khilafah Has Been Made a Crime in Pakistan
Demonstrations by Hizbut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan
Calling for Islam and its Khilafah Has Been Made a Crime in Pakistan
On 4th November 2015, Hizbut Tahrir / Wilayah Pakistan held demonstrations across Pakistan to highlight the atrocities committed by the regime under the banner of National Action Plan against the advocates of Islam and its Khilafah. Protesters were holding banners and placards stating: “National Action Plan is US Plan to Crush the Voices for Islam” and “Democracy is the Guardian of the American Raj, Khilafah is the Shield of the Muslims”.
These demonstrations were held in order to highlight the arrests of sincere Ullema, politicians and common people who demand implementation of Islam and establishment of Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood, under the banner of the National Action Plan to eliminate so-called “terrorism” and “extremism”. How can calling for Islam be declared a crime in Pakistan, which was created in the name of Islam? The rulers know very well that they cannot do this openly, so they declare a person or group who or which demands the implementation of Islam as “extremist.” As for those who account rulers on their failure to implement Islam, their speeches and writings are declared as “hate-speech”. So the rulers are putting these sincere Muslims behind bars, under the Protection of Pakistan Act (POPA). On top of this oppression, this law has closed the doors for getting bail and even after the nearly year old order, special courts are not established to try these cases. Even when they are established in some places, then judges are not provided with facilities to conduct their responsibilities. The demonstrators were demanding to end this oppression and the release of their loved ones.
Hizbut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Pakistan supports all those who are behind the bars just because they demand that the law of Allah (swt) must be implemented on the land of Allah (swt). Hizbut Tahrir warns the rulers that by obeying their American masters blindly, they will face the wrath of the Ummah in this world in the form of the courts of the soon to arrive Khilafah and in the Akhira their punishment by Allah (swt) will be most severe. Therefore it is better for them that they repent and end this oppression, and make way for the return of the Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood.
(وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ ٱلرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ ٱلْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ وَسَآءَتْ مَصِيراً)
“And whoever breaks away with the Messenger after the right path has become clear to him and follows what is not the way of the believers, We shall let him have what he chose, and We shall admit him to Jahannam. And it is an evil place to return.”
