Press Release: Houthis Crown their Failure by Arresting Hizb ut Tahrir’s Shabab

Houthis Crown their Failure by Arresting Hizb ut Tahrir’s Shabab

Houthi militias embarked on Wednesday, 21/01/2015 CE in the province of Ibb, on arresting five of Hizb ut Tahrir’s Shabab; Brother Mohammed Massad Al-Worafi and his nephew, Brother Muadh Al-Baadani, Brother Noaman Al-Baadani, and Brother Shafiq Khamis Yaslim. They put them in a collective jail in the city of Ibb without any charge, all this arbitrarily and in arrogance; with the prior knowledge that Hizb ut Tahrir works in the Ummah to revive it intellectually in order to establish the Khilafah on the method of the Prophethood on the basis of the Islamic Aqeedah. It does not adopt any material acts (violence) to achieve this; not out of fear and cowardice, but in compliance with the Shari’ rulings and following the example of the method of the Messenger of Allah (saw) in establishing his state.

Houthi militias had previously arrested a number of Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir several times and had not proven any charge against them, except that they are working to establish the rules and systems of Islam through the Shari’ method, as they also expose the schemes of the West and its agents against the Ummah, revealing their tricks and warning of their evils. The Hizb has issued several press releases regarding the arrests of its Shabab by them at the time. It also communicated with the political Bureau of the Houthi group; of them is Brother Mahmoud Junaid, who we met in the group’s political office and explained to him the idea, the method and the aim of the Hizb and was appreciative to what we presented to him. We also communicated with Brother Hamza al-Houthi, who expressed readiness to cooperate seriously with us. He justified the arrest of these Shabab as an occurred confusion because they do not differentiate between Hizb ut Tahrir and al-Qaeda; all as a result of their lack of awareness and their use of the wrong inclusive judgment.

These actions and this justification indicate the miserable failure and horrible penetration, experienced by the group and recognized by some of its officials, by the former regime and its men of politicians and security.

It was more likely and more suitable for a group that claims to be servile to the Muslims and forceful against the enemies, to support Allah’s Deen and the carriers of His Da’wah who are calling for the establishment of the Khilafah Rashidah on the method of the Prophethood as a method to resume the Islamic way of life as Allah wants; and not to arrest them and restrict them!!  Rather, it was more likely for it to apply its motto; expelling Western ambassadors and closing the embassies of conspiracies against Islam and Muslims, and not to adopt the projects of these enemies and spin in their orbit!!

Your failure O Houthis does not justify your detention of our Shabab. We had expected that failure due to the fact that you do not adopt a clear vision and a revival project from the doctrine of Islam and its solutions. Rather, you did not come with anything new except words and mottos which fail with the first act of your actions. So fear Allah and accept the advice (Naseeha) of your brothers in Hizb ut Tahrir and it should not take hold of you pride in the sin and should not obstruct between us the zeal to refrain and the dictates of the conspirators.

We invite you to be as what you named yourselves “Ansar Allah” and to be the carriers of the call of Allah, and not to become a stumbling block standing in front of the Da’wah for the Khilafah on the method of the Prophethood. As well as, to abide by Allah’s Law so that you enjoy the Almighty’s satisfaction on you in this world and the Hereafter. Or else we do not verify for you a name you named yourselves with while we see otherwise on the ground. So be Ansar Allah truly and prove that, and for this let the competitors compete.
