Press Release: People are Dying … and the Government is Busy with Messi’s Shirt and Honoring the President!
People are Dying … and the Government is Busy with Messi’s Shirt and Honoring the President!
Interior Minister, Head of the National Council for Civil Defence, General Ismat Abdel-Rahman, during his speech at the parliamentary session of, measures and arrangements to counter the effects of Autumn and rains, on Wednesday, 08/03/2016, listed losses caused by the floods and rains in the different states in Sudan; leaving dozens of people dead and dozens wounded, including thousands of collapsed homes and damage to hundreds of acres of agricultural land due to torrential rain and flooding.
So what did the government do before these disasters occurred, people died, their houses demolished, and their farms damaged?! Did the fall season come before its due time? Is the government’s duty to count losses without doing anything?!
The answer is crystal clear in the fourth day, seen by everyone, the government did not do anything before fall season; which arrives annually in a timely manner; known months, but the government is not concerned about its people. It is a state that is not based on caring for welfare of the people, rather it does not take care at all, for it is a full-blown levying state. And if there are disasters caused by improper care by the state and its officials, and the complete negligence of the people’s needs and their problems, it starts wailing and complaining, and throwing the people of negligence and dereliction, and puts forth arguments that are weaker than a spider’s thread, abdicating their responsibilities towards people. Then it counts the dead from the houses that were destroyed atop the heads of their occupants, the drowned by the torrential rains, the electrocuted, and those who lost their farming, … it counts them all, as if this is their only mission; counting losses and warning people, and even threatening them of the coming. The State Meteorological Body warns people of continuous heavy rainfall in all states of Sudan, so what do people do? No drainages were opened before the fall season, even in the country’s capital, Khartoum, which drowns by the slightest amount of rain and becomes polluted pools, incubating flies, mosquitoes, and other pathogens, add to that the accumulation and the rotting of waste, to worsen the environment, nor that precautions were taken on the Nile in the known vulnerable places in anticipation of the flood!
For the state is busy with Messi’s shirt, and honoring the President!! And it forgets, rather pretends to forget that they are accountable before Allah, on the day everyone stands without titles and shrines before one’s Judge; barefoot, naked and no screen between them and Allah, and He will ask them why you defied My command and ruled by other than My Book and the Sunnah of My Prophet (saw), so you wronged yourselves and your people? Did you not hear the words of Omar bin al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him), “If a mule trips in the shore of the Euphrates, I fear Allah would hold me responsible on the Day of Judgment and ask me why I did not make proper pathways.” We ask Allah Almighty to bestow His mercy on the souls of the martyrs and grant kindness to His slaves.
O people, O people of Sudan! This condition of yours is repeated every year, and you do not comprehend, nor you remember! For how long is your inclination towards humiliation, and approval of disobedience to Ar-Rahman?! Has the time not come for you to work for the establishment of the state of guardianship that will best take care of your affairs, and rule you by the Book of your Lord and the Sunnah of your Prophet, and renounce this levying state, which plunged you to the perished fates!
Then hasten to return it, the Khilafah on the method of Prophethood that pleases your Lord, and you live honored and dignified under its protection.
