Hizbut Tahrir Strongly Protests Sheikh Hasina’s Lies against the Party

On Wednesday, 18th February (2015), in response to a question from an MP during the Prime Minister’s question time in the “holy” Parliament, Sheikh Hasina paid no attention to “the Parliament’s sanctity” and blatantly lied against Hizbut Tahrir by claiming that the party engages in “subversive activities.” We strongly protest her statement and condemn it. The truth of the matter is that Sheikh Hasina’s party, the Awami League is the master in carrying out subversive activities and violence against the people including arson, vandalism, destruction of people’s property and killing and maiming them. When it is out of power, it resorts to such militant acts in its street agitations and when it is in power, it resorts to using brutal force against the people with iron and fire as it is doing now, not to mention the militancy of its student wing, Chatra League, for the past five years.


In contrast to that, Hizbut Tahrir restricts its activities to intellectual and political actions and the party is committed to that due to its commitment to the commands and prohibitions of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw). The party strictly adheres to the method of political work undertaken by RasulAllah (saw) to establish the Islamic State which did not include performing acts of violence in any form.

Sheikh Hasina mentioned other issues about Hizbut Tahrir in her statement such as the party is linked with the BNP and its allies etc. We do not find it worth responding in detail to such ridiculous claims because it is clear as day to all the aware people that Hizbut Tahrir shuns the Awami League and BNP alliances’ politics equally and works to remove the current ruling system completely.

Truly, Sheikh Hasina and the MPs are getting restless due to the success of 000 000’s political work. This is clear from the fact that the MP’s question was concerning a poster which is part of the on-going campaign by Hizbut Tahrir titled, “Oh People! For the immediate removal of Sheikh Hasina and the current ruling system, and establishing the Khilafah, the sincere military officers have to be contacted and organized; support and actively participate with Hizbut Tahrir in this work.”

Let Sheikh Hasina and the advocates of the current ruling system be clear that their lies and vicious tactics against the party will not succeed and the Khilafah will return soon.
