Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Sudan had submitted a request to the Khartoum State Police to inform the authorities that it is preparing to hold a public rhetorical festival at Al-Shaheed Al-Zubair Mohammed Saleh International Conference Center on Saturday, 11 Jumada II 1440 AH, 06/02/2019 at 4:00 pm, with the participation of a group of scholars, leaders of Al-‘Amal Al-Islami group, and Imams of mosques. On Tuesday 05/02/2019, the Khartoum State Police received the notification and passed it to the GSS on the same day. Our representative continued to follow up with the police and the security apparatus without avail until the writing of this statement, although they claim that they usually respond within three days. More than nine days have elapsed, without any response, neither negative nor positive!
This regime has proven that it opposes Islam and fights against it, even though it claims to be an Islamic regime, and despite its claim that those who rebelled against the regime, have revolted to remove Islam and implement secularism. How then does the regime refuse to establish a festival that talks about Islam in a hall, and shows the corruption of secularism, if it wasn’t a secular regime itself?! A regime that fights Islam and its Da’wah carriers will inevitably fall sooner or later.
We in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Sudan, confirm that rejecting the upholding of the event (because not responding until the time of its date implies implicit rejection), will not dissuade the Party from fulfilling its legitimate duty towards the Ummah. We are with the Ummah, part of it and within it, until this corrupt regime falls, and the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophet is implemented on its ruins, as the glad-tidings given to us by our beloved Messenger Mohammad ﷺ, after the oppressive rule that this regime is based on. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: «… ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلافَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ» “…Afterwards, there will be an oppressive ruling, and it will last for as long as Allah wishes, then He will lift it if He wishes. Then there will be a Khilafah Rashida according to the ways of the Prophethood.’ Then he kept silent.” (Musnad Imam Ahmad)
