The National Election will not bring any Change to this Rule of Tyranny and the Miserable Condition of the People
Only Way of Liberate the People is to establish the Khilafah (Caliphate) under the Leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
With the election looming, the ruling class has again divided into alliances led by AL-BNP and each side is calling the people to its side. When the people of Bangladesh are desperate for any means or ways to get rid of tyrant Hasina’s unbearable misrule, corruption and oppression, and they are seeing this election as a means to remove her, the BNP ruling elite are seeing this as an opportunity to get to power by forming Oikyafront and have come to the election field. In every national election the AL-BNP ruling class comes to the people with bowed head and with various deceitful slogans, divided into groups and subgroups, with new faces and various deceptive promises. But after they get authority, they forget the people, and let alone fulfilling of the aspirations people, they ignore even the basic rights of the people. When people raise voice for their rights, they either ignore that deceitfully or resort to various means to terrify and suppress the people. On the other hand, the opposition alliance have never stood on behalf of the demands of the people, but rather count days to get to power by exploiting the agitation and anger of the people. In this way the AL-BNP ruling class, by turn, is ruling the people for decades and continuing their oppression. The main goal of this ruling class is serving the interests of the Kafir imperialists, especially USA-Britain-India, serving the interests of their coterie capitalist class and themselves, and on the other hand they deprive general people of their basic rights. So, what new can we expect from them? Our beloved Prophet ﷺ said,
«لَا يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ»
“A believer is not stung twice (by something) out of one and the same hole.” [Sahih Al-Bukhari].
Therefore, we need to uproot this ruling class and the so-called democratic system, the factory which produces this ruling class, and unify for the establishment of Khilafah (Caliphate), a system that is decreed by Allah (swt).
Allah (swt) says,
إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ
“Allah does not change the circumstances of any people until they have changed what is within themselves.”[Ar-Ra’d: 11].
If you want to get rid of the tyranny which has emanated from this system, then you do not have any option to be inactive or to take any wrong steps, and you have to reject the deceitful slogans and promises of this ruling class, resist them, and exert all of your effort to unify for the establishment of Khilafah under the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir. You have to appreciate the leadership and honor given to you by Allah (swt),
كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ
“You are the best of the people ever raised up from mankind…” [Aal-i-Imraan: 110].
What is required from you is to set this as your benchmark and as your vision if you desire to see yourselves as a leading nation, living with might, honor and respect. For this purpose, we provide you here with a brief outline of the ascending path the imminent Khilafah under the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir will follow to achieve for you this noble and high status in the world:
Firstly: The Khilafah will put an end of this tyrannical rule and ensure rule of justice. A principle of the Islamic State is that Sovereignty belongs to Allah (swt) only, i.e. HE (swt) is the only Legislator of laws. Therefore, as the head of the Islamic state, the Khalifah (Caliph) is not allowed to legislate, he cannot be a tyrannical ruler, making laws not based on Shari’ evidences as he desires. Ruling the country on the basis of the Qur’an and the Sunnah, taking care of the people, accountability to people and in ruling affairs, and following transparent policy in ruling are obligations on the Khalifah. The Mahkamatul Madhalim (Court of Unjust Acts) is one of the important components of the judiciary, by which the people can sue any state official, including the Khalifah, for his unjust acts or neglecting the demands and rights of the people. You know that when Ali (ra) was Khalifah, the Qadi (judge) of Yemen, Surai’yah brought Ali (ra) into court in a dispute between him (ra) and a Jew. And seeing the justice of Islam, that man afterwards accepted Islam and became a Muslim. The Khilafah will eradicate corruption and nepotism, RasulAllah ﷺ said,
«وَالَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لَوْ أَنَّ فَاطِمَةَ بِنْتَ مُحَمَّدٍ سَرَقَتْ لَقَطَعْتُ يَدَهَا»
“By Him in Whose Hand is my life, even if Fatima daughter of Muhammad were to commit theft, I would have cut off her hand.” [Sahih Al-Muslim].
Secondly: Regardless of their religion and race, for every citizen, the Khalifah is bound by the Shari’ah to ensure the basic rights such as food-clothing-shelter, education-health and security. RasulAllah ﷺ said:
«الْإِمَامُ رَاعٍ وَهُوَ مَسْئُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ»
“Imam (Khalifah) is the guardian and he is responsible for his citizen.” [Bukhari/Muslim].
You know that Umar ibn Al-Khattab (ra.) used to say: Even if an animal under my care is injured on the roads of Iraq, I would expect Allah the Exalted to question me about it on the Day of Resurrection, that why I did not keep that road smooth for that animal.” Furthermore, the Khalifah will also take necessary steps to ensure that people can achieve a life of prosperity.
Thirdly: The Khalifah State will prevent monopoly and price fixing to inflate prices; RasulAllah ﷺ said:
«مَنْ دَخَلَ فِي شَيْءٍ مِنْ أَسْعَارِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ، لِيُغْلِيَهُ عَلَيْهِمْ، كَانَ حَقّاً عَلَى اللَّهِ أَنْ يُقْعِدَهُ بِعُظْمٍ مِنَ النَّارِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ»
“Whosoever was involved in any of the prices of the Muslims, so as to increase it for them it would be due on Allah to place him in a great fire at the Day of Judgement”.
The Khalifah State will bring under control the unbearable price hikes, put an end to the exploitative income tax and VAT system, and by encouraging small business investments create countless job opportunities. It will ensure the distribution of wealth due to the Islamic economic principle that Allah (swt) states,
كَيْ لَا يَكُونَ دُولَةً بَيْنَ الْأَغْنِيَاءِ مِنْكُمْ
“…in order that they (the funds) may not remain in circuit between the wealthy amongst you.” [Surah Al-Hasr: 7]
Fourthly: Mineral resources like gas, coal, oil, uranium, etc. are public property according to the Shari’ah and they are strategically important resources as well. Regarding these resources, the Khilafah will cancel all leasing treaties with local-foreign companies and utilize them for the benefit of the people. Prophet ﷺ said:
«النَّاسُ شُرَكَاءُ فِي ثَلَاثٍ: فِي الْمَاءِ وَالْكَلَأِ وَالنَّارِ»
“Muslims are partners (associates) in three things: in water (river, sea, etc), pastures and fire (coal, gas, etc.).” [Abu Dawud].
These resources will be utilized properly and a vision and a plan will be formulated to transform the nation into a powerful, self-sufficient state. Additionally, the Khilafah will cancel all investment treaties with the foreign multinational companies on transit, port, maritime boundary, etc. and any other that were signed to give them influence over the nation’s economy.
Fifthly: It is an obligation (Fardh) upon the Khilafah to establish war based heavy industries and it will be done to ensure that our military is equipped with advanced weaponry,
وَأَعِدُّوا لَهُمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ مِنْ قُوَّةٍ وَمِنْ رِبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدُوَّ اللَّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ
“And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) to strike terror into the enemy of Allah and your enemy…” [Surah Al-Anfal: 60].
This industry will free our military from the dependency on the Kafir imperialists like USA, China, India and Russia.
Sixthly: By unifying Muslim lands the Khilafah will bring together our people, resources and militaries, and as a result this State will become a formidable power. This unity of the Ummah is possible and practicable particularly at this time when we are witnessing from Morocco to Indonesia the vigorous demands of the Muslims to live under the Khilafah. Whereas the current regime has turned Bangladesh into a vassal state of India, the Khilafah will reverse this status and will bring India under the Islamic rule, will thus permanently put an end to Indian aggression; the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ: «وَعَدَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ غَزْوَةَ الْهِنْدِ فَإِنْ أَدْرَكْتُهَا أُنْفِقْ فِيهَا نَفْسِي وَمَالِي وَإِنْ قُتِلْتُ كُنْتُ أَفْضَلَ الشُّهَدَاءِ وَإِنْ رَجَعْتُ فَأَنَا أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ الْمُحَرَّرُ»
“A group of you will conquer India, Allah will open for them (India) until they come with its kings chained – Allah would forgive those warriors – when they return back (from India), they will find Isa ibn Maryam in Syria.” [Kitab Al-Fitan].
Seventhly: The Khilafah will challenge the Kafir imperialists, especially USA-Britain, who are conducting a war against Islam, and eradicating their influence over the world, will gain the status of a leading state, and liberating mankind from the oppression and exploitation of the Kafir imperialists, will bring them under the shade of Islam. The Prophet ﷺ said
«إِنَّ اللَّهَ زَوَى لِي الْأَرْضَ أَوْ قَالَ إِنَّ رَبِّي زَوَى لِي الْأَرْضَ فَرَأَيْتُ مَشَارِقَهَا وَمَغَارِبَهَا وَإِنَّ مُلْكَ أُمَّتِي سَيَبْلُغُ مَا زُوِيَ لِي مِنْهَا»
“Allah showed me the Earth, I saw its Easts and the Wests, verily my Ummah will rule what I was shown of it.” (Muslim).
Establishing the Khilafah is not only to achieve prosperity and a high status in the world, but rather is also an obligation upon you ordained by the Lord of the Worlds. We therefore call upon you to fulfill this duty. RasulAllah ﷺ said,
«وَمَنْ مَاتَ وَلَيْسَ فِي عُنُقِهِ بَيْعَةٌ مَاتَ مِيتَةً جَاهِلِيَّةً»
“Whoever dies without having the bay’ah on his neck he would die the death of Jahiliyyah.” [Sahih Al-Muslim].
So, We, Hizb ut Tahrir, call upon you to reject the ruling elites of AL-BNP-Okiyafront, the agents of the Kafir imperialists, and to unify upon the one demand of establishing the Khilafah Rashidah (Rightly Guided Caliphate) under the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir, so that current system of oppression is removed permanently. And demand to the sincere military officers so that they remove the tyrant Hasina and transfer the authority to Hizb ut Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah Rashidah.
O Sincere Military Officers!
You observed how our brave youths protested and revolted against this ruling class and the current system! You must also realize how shameful it is to guard the ballot boxes of the national election so that this tyrant Hasina can come to power again, or these corrupted rulers can come to power, by turn! So, you should take your stance on the side of Islam, so that you can rescue the Muslims of this land from this tyrannical rule and bring back the honorable status for them. Allah (swt) sent Islam to become the dominant way of life in the world,
هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ
“It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Deen of truth to make it dominate over all other Deen even though the Mushrikun hate (it).” [Surah At-Taubah: 33].
As officers of the Muslim military, the task of establishing Islam in authority and raising the banner of Islam high in the world falls upon your necks, as you are the only ones capable due to the material power that you possess in your hands. You are ‘Atandra Prahari’ (Alert guard) in the service of Islam and the Muslim Ummah, not guards for this tyrannical rule! Your ‘Sword of Honor’ should be a source of honor for you, do not let it be a source of dishonor by serving this tyrant regime! It is a must for you to bring the Ummah out of this tyranny and the subservient colonial system, and restore her glory. March forth to make Islam victorious in this Land. March forth O Sincere Officers, to bring down this regime and give the nusrah to Hizb ut Tahrir for establishing the second Khilafah Rashidah upon the methodology of the Prophethood. Your reward will be Jannah insha’Allah.
جَنَّاتُ عَدْنٍ يَدْخُلُونَهَا وَمَنْ صَلَحَ مِنْ آبَائِهِمْ وَأَزْوَاجِهِمْ وَذُرِّيَّاتِهِمْ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ يَدْخُلُونَ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ بَابٍ
“Gardens of perpetual bliss, which they shall enter and (also) those who acted righteously from among their fathers, and their spouses, and their offspring…” [Surah Ar-Ra’d: 23]
