Press Release: Judicial oppression of Raheel-Nawaz regime against Hizb Arrests and Long Imprisonment will not Prevent the Establishment of Khilafah

Judicial oppression of Raheel-Nawaz regime against Hizb
Arrests and Long Imprisonment will not Prevent the Establishment of Khilafah

After delaying court hearings for 3 months without any valid reason, the Lahore High Court bench has yesterday, 31 March 2015, rejected the bail applications of 12 Shabab of Hizbut Tahrir. These Shabab were arrested on 5 December 2014 from an Islamic dars gathering in Gulberg, Lahore. The Raheel-Nawaz regime utilises the British imperialist judicial system in Pakistan in attempts to prevent Hizb and its Shabab from working for the reestablishment of the Khilafah. This system allows innocent people to be imprisoned for years without the presentation of any evidence against them or any crime being proven.

These individuals have been imprisoned for the last four months without any prosecution starting or bail being granted. When after postponing the hearing dates for three whole months, the bench sought evidence from the prosecutors for the allegations against the accused, literature of Hizb present in the dars was forwarded. However, the bench rejected the bail application without even examining any of the presented literature. All of Hizb’s literature, which discusses and presents the Islamic Aqeedah and systems of life, is based solely on the Qur’an and Sunnah. The claim that this literature foments hatred, sectarianism or “terrorism” is a baseless allegation that stands unproven till today.

The twelve imprisoned Shabab are highly-educated individuals from respected families. They are models in society who on the one hand benefit society by their intellectual and business abilities and on the other exert effort and sacrifice for the establishment of the Khilafah on the method of the Prophet (saw) through intellectual and political work. The establishment of the Khilafah is an obligation on the entire Ummah and the means by which the Ummah will rescue herself from the humiliating mess she is in to restore her honour and status.

The Raheel-Nawaz regime should know that none of its attempt can prevent the establishment of the Khilafah because it is the promise of Allah and His Messenger (saw) and their promise is true. Anyone who tries to prevent their promise or support oppressors who try to do so are in fact the wretched ones! Hizbut Tahrir reminds you only to complete the proof against you, so that all those who try to prevent this promise and oppress those working to fulfill this promise or support oppressors know well that when the Khilafah is established they will be from among the losers. Worse, when they stand before Allah on the Day of Judgment their loss will be incomparably greater!

Hizbut Tahrir and its members will continue to exert all effort to establish the Khilafah and it will be established by the Hukm of Allah. We say to the oppressors and those who support them: exert all your effort and we too, relying on Allah alone, will exert our effort. We will never turn away from working for the Deen of Allah, by His leave.

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ
