Remember Aurangzeb! Mobilize Armed Forces to Liberate Rohingya Muslims
Selling Fighter Jets to the Myanmar (Burma) Regime, Butcher of the Rohingya Muslims, is Open Treachery
On 1 February 2017, IHS Jane’s Defence weekly reported that Myanmar is currently negotiating with the government of Pakistan for the purchase of JF-17 fighter jets and a license for their local production. According to the report by the end of this year, 16 JF-17 jets will become part of Myanmar Air Force (MAF). According to local Pakistani media, when the Defence Ministry, Foreign Affairs Ministry and Pakistan Air Force were contacted, they declined to comment on this news.
We ask, how can anyone professing Islam show this level of cold heartedness to the long oppressed Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar (Burma)? Is it not an obligation upon the rulers of Pakistan to mobilize our Muslim armed forces to liberate the oppressed Rohingya Muslims from the brutal Myanmar regime? Allah (swt) said,
﴿وَإِنِ ٱسْتَنصَرُوكُمْ فِى ٱلدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ ٱلنَّصْرُ﴾
“If they seek your help in religion, it is your duty to help them.” [Surah al-Anfal 8:72].
Are rulers unaware of the obligation for waging Jihad in support of oppressed? Allah (swt) said,
﴿وَمَا لَكُمْ لاَ تُقَاتِلُونَ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ وَٱلْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ ٱلرِّجَالِ وَٱلنِّسَآءِ وَٱلْوِلْدَانِ﴾
“And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children.” [Surah An-Nisa: 4:75.]
Are rulers unaware of the warning of Allah (swt) for their neglect? Allah (swt) said,
﴿إِلاَّ تَنفِرُواْ يُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَاباً أَلِيماً﴾
“If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment.” [Surah At-Tauba 8:39].
Are the rulers unaware that RasulAllah (saaw) forbade abandoning a Muslim? RasulAllah (saaw) said,
«اَلْمُسْلِمُ أَخُو اَلْمُسْلِمِ، لَا يَظْلِمُهُ، وَلَا يَخْذُلُهُ»
“A Muslim is a Muslim’s brother. He does not wrong and does not abandon him” (Muslim).
And are rulers unaware of the saying of Messenger (saaw) that Muslims have a single peace and war? RasulAllah (saaw) wrote in the Madinah Charter,
«وأن سلم المؤمنين واحدة لا يسالم مؤمن دون مؤمن في قتال في سبيل الله»
“The peace of the believers is one. No separate peace shall be made with other than believers when believers are as one fighting in the way of Allah.”
We contrast this lowly attitude of rulers ruling by Kufr, to the conduct of the ruler that governs by Islam and pays heed to the words of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saaw). Consider how Sultan Aurangzeb Alamgir dealt with the notorious ancestors of the Myanmar Buddhist mushrikeen regime, the mighty Rakhine marauders. Despite the fact that the Rakhine state extended its dominion all the way to Chittagong in modern day Bangladesh, Aurangzeb acted decisively to end their oppression of Muslims within their territory and the wider region. Having successively isolated them from their Portuguese allies, Aurangzeb liberated Chittagong in January 1666, after a thirty-six hour siege, with 6500 troops and 288 ships. After that severe blow, the Rakhine oppressors fell into a steep decline from which they never recovered.
Certainly the rulers of Pakistan are well aware of the commands of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saaw), but they have chosen instead to assist the enemies of Allah (swt), His Messenger (saaw) and the Believers. It is upon the sincere Muslims to prevent the handful of traitors in Pakistan’s leadership from undertaking oppression. RasulAllah (saaw),
«إنَّ النَّاسَ إَذا رَأوُا الظَّالِمَ فَلمْ يَأْخُذُوا عَلى يَدَيْهِ أوْشَكَ أن يَعُمَّهُمُ اللَّهُ بعِقَاب»
“If the people witness an oppressor and they do not take him by his hands (to prevent him) then they are close to Allah covering them all with punishment.” [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, ibn Majah].
Indeed, this treachery against Muslims will only end when the sincere officers in the armed forces of Pakistan provide Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir for the establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood. Only then will a Khaleefah Rashid gather and unify the Muslims and their armed forces under the Banner of the Messenger (saaw), as a magnificent state, to liberate the oppressed Rohingya Muslims and avenge them of their Buddhist mushrikeen oppressors.
