Panama Case Verdict is Eyewash
Establish Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood to Stop Being Stung by Democracy!
Today’s Panama Papers case split decision judicial verdict for establishing a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) over the corruption of the ruling Sharif family is far from a “historical decision.” It clearly shows that any attempt whatsoever to bring change through Democracy is bound to fail. There was no “turning point” when Musharraf removed Nawaz Sharif to install “true” democracy. Nor was there a “historical upheaval” when Musharraf stepped down for “real” democracy. Nor was there “long awaited relief” when Nawaz Sharif returned to power through elections. Nor will there be “real change” even if we see the back of Nawaz Sharif after the investigation. The Muslims have been stung by Democracy not once but several times even though RasulAllah (saaw) said, «لَا يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ» “The believer is not stung from the same hole twice.” [Bukhari]
Corruption is caused by Democracy because it gives the right to human beings to make laws according to their whims and desires, disregarding all that Allah (swt) has revealed. By doing so, Democracy becomes the horse of the US and no matter who rides it, whether Nawaz Sharif, Asif Ali Zardari or Imran Khan, the colonialists will steer our affairs. The colonialists continuously manipulate Democracy into passing laws that contradict Islam and harm Muslims through strong contact with the rulers and the legislators. Our key economic policies are determined by the US dominated IMF, leading to privatization of our valuable assets, deepening debt due to interest and back breaking taxation. Our foreign policy is determined by the US State Department, Pentagon and CENTCOM, leading to our armed forces being burned as fuel to consolidate the US foothold in Afghanistan, whilst being chained in “restraint” before ever increasing Indian hostility. Democracy is the open door for all the colonialist policies that impoverish and harm us. Democracy deserves only abolition because it assigns assemblies of men and women as sovereign, allowing them to choose laws according to their whims and desires, even though Allah (swt) said,
﴿وَأَنِ ٱحْكُم بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ وَلاَ تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَآءَهُمْ وَٱحْذَرْهُمْ أَن يَفْتِنُوكَ عَن بَعْضِ مَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ﴾
“And judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their desires, and beware (O Muhammad) that they might seduce you from some of what Allah has sent down to you.” [Surah Al-Maa’ida 5:49].
O Muslims of Pakistan! Today’s Supreme Court verdict removes any doubt that it is upon us all to work with Hizb ut Tahrir now in its struggle to restore Islam as a way of life. It is the only sincere and aware leadership that calls for the abolition of Democracy and the re-establishment of the Khilafah. Only then will we have a leadership that fears Allah (swt) alone, ruling by the Truth and caring for all the people, regardless of ethnicity, school of thought, religion, wealth or status. Allah (swt) said,
﴿إِنَّا أَنْزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ لِتَحْكُمَ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ بِمَا أَرَاكَ الله﴾
“Indeed, We have revealed upon you (O Muhammad (saw)) a Book in Truth, to rule between the people by what Allah has shown you.” [Surah an-Nisa’a 4:105].
O sincere officers of Pakistan’s armed forces! Democracy has only brought us humiliation before our enemies and ever worsening economic hardship. Democracy has harmed us from the time of the Musharraf-Aziz regime, through to the Kayani-Zardari regime, through the Raheel-Nawaz regime and now under the Bajwa-Nawaz regime. So, how do you allow a corrupt leadership to use your strength as a support for the continuation of Democracy, the furnace in which our people and country burns? It is upon you now to move to abolish Democracy, by granting your Nussrah (Material Support) to Hizb ut Tahrir under its Ameer, Sheikh Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah, for the immediate return of the Khilafah. Only then will we see the end of the rule of force and tyranny and the return of the rule of Islam by a Khilafah State. Ahmed narrated that RasulAllah (saw) said,
«ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ ثُمَّ سَكَتَ»
“Then there will be rule of force, and it will remain as long as Allah will it to remain. Then Allah will end it when He wills. Then there will be a Khilafah on the Way of the Prophetood.” Then he fell silent.
