Islamic Political Party Hizb ut Tahrir included in Proscribed Organizations

Declaring Hizb ut Tahrir Proscribed is Declaring the Call for Islam and its Khilafah Forbidden

On Friday, 18th December 2015, the Ministry of Interior and Narcotics Control of the Raheel-Nawaz regime presented a list of proscribed organizations to Senate of Pakistan, which includes the name of Hizb ut Tahrir, which was circulated in the media. The Minister of State for Interior, Balighur Rehman, said any organization found to be involved in terrorism and extremism activities would not be allowed to operate in the country.

Hizb ut Tahrir is an Islamic political party which follows the Sunnah of RasulAllah (saw) in its methodology. It conducts political and intellectual struggle for the establishment of the Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood. Hizb ut Tahrir does not undertake material or militant struggle for the establishment of Khilafah, as it is against the teachings of Islam and forbidden (Haram). Hizb ut Tahrir is not a sectarian organization and invites all Muslims to carry Islam and adopt its systems regardless of their school of thought as it looks to all of them according to the viewpoint of Islam. It recognizes Hanbali, Hanifi, Jafari, Maliki and Shafii amongst others as Islamic schools of jurisprudence and has distributed many leaflets calling for the unification of all Muslims. Hizb ut Tahrir accounts rulers when they rule in matters regarding politics, economy, judicial, education, foreign policy and relationship of men and women according to the laws of the Kuffar and make friendship and alliance with the enemies of Islam and Muslims. Hizb ut Tahrir exposes the conspiracies of Kuffar against Islam and Muslims in front of the Ummah. Hizb ut Tahrir calls the Ummah in general, and the people of power in particular, for the establishment of Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood, so the Islamic way of life is resumed once again.

Hizb ut Tahrir undertakes its work in accordance of the command of Allah (swt), وَلْتَكُنْ مِّنْكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى ٱلْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ ٱلْمُنْكَرِ Let their arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma’ruf (that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (that Islam has forbidden)” (Al-i- Imran:104), hizb undertakes its work in obedience of the saying of RasulAllah (saaw) that,  «افضل الجھاد کلمة حق عند سلطان جائر»Best of Jihad is to raise word of truth in front of an oppressive ruler” (Ahmed). Is it a crime to call and struggle for the abolition of colonialist borders and bring together the Muslim Ummah as one Ummah under the Khilafah Rashidah? Is it a crime to ask the armies of the Islamic Ummah to move for the liberation of Kashmir, Palestine and the First Kibla, Masjid Al-Aqsa? Is it a crime to enlighten the Ummah about the economic system of Islam so that Interest can finally be abolished and war from Allah and His Messenger (saaw) ended? If all these acts are not a crime in a country created in the name of Islam, then how can Hizb ut Tahrir be proscribed? Moreover, placing Hizb ut Tahrir in the list of proscribed organizations, arresting the advocates of Khilafah and describing their so-called crime in the media as that of denial of democracy and working for the establishment of Khilafah, all is an evidence that the Raheel-Nawaz regime has issued an unannounced declaration that the political and intellectual struggle for Islam and establishment of Khilafah is a crime.

Hizb ut Tahrir has been following the commands of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saaw) even in the face of intense persecution by the oppressive rulers and will continue to do so. So if the Raheel-Nawaz regime has the courage of conviction, then it must declare openly that on the instructions of its master, America, calling for Islam and its Khilafah has now been declared crime. Otherwise, the very least it can do is to make way for Hizb ut Tahrir in its rise for the establishment of the Khilafah. In any case, whatever the traitors do, Allah (swt) will perfect His light.

وَيَأْبَىٰ ٱللَّهُ إِلاَّ أَن يُتِمَّ نُورَهُ

But Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected [At-Taubah:32]
