A System Change Should be from Batil (Falsehood) to Haqq (Truth), and Not from Batil to Batil

President Erdogan ordered the State Supervisory Council (DDK) to investigate the malfunctions in the Presidential System.

After his return from the G20 summit, Erdogan stated that he wants to meet MHP’s chairman Devlet Bahceli to examine DDK’s report, and to discuss ‘the malfunctions of the new system, and its parts which should be amended’. While it is emphasized that both party leaders favor the continuation of the system, it is stated that the aim is to strengthen the system, and that there will be an exchange of views notably on the Parliament By-Law and adjustment laws, in order to strengthen legislation and execution.

While President Erdogan himself gave instructions to investigate the malfunctions in the presidential system after the Istanbul mayoral elections, he actually implied the existence of problems related to the system. CHP’s Chairman, Kemal Kilicdaroglu, on the other hand, called for a return to the parliamentary system and a constitutional amendment, during the first group meeting of his party after the Istanbul elections. In short, after CHP won the Istanbul elections, “system change” has swiftly hit the political agenda of Turkey. Actually, the struggle between those who have a strong desire for a system change, and those who defend the existence of the present presidential system is a dirty hegemony struggle between the kafir colonist England which established the parliamentary system on the ruins of the Ottoman Khilafah and desires the revival of that system, and the kafir colonist America which brought the presidential system into being in place of the parliamentary system, by favor of the AK Party government. And this situation cannot be explained with something else other than these. When either a changeover from the parliamentary system to the presidential system, or a changeover from the presidential system to the parliamentary system is at stake, we should not concern about the change regarding the government model, but we should virtually concern with what we are governed and to what we are invited to.

The change that is about to be realized is not from batil to haqq, but from batil to batil. In other words, the source of both the parliamentary system and the presidential system, whose change is introduced us as inevitable, is democracy. Despite the fact that a systemic change is at stake, the source of the ruling system we are invited to is democracy. The Muslims have always paid for the hegemony war the colonist Kuffar lead in the Muslim lands, and they will continue to pay. Therefore, since it is the Muslims who agonize in the whirlpool of financial crises and bear the costs at all points, it will not matter whether it is the parliamentary system or the presidential system.

We, the real owners of these ancient lands, did not learn the disease of democracy from books. We came to know about its reality as the source of mischief through living under the democratic systems applied upon us. We are being poisoned for years through the venom of democracy, which is served to the Muslims through Islamic motifs. However, the Believer is not stung twice from the same hole, and he should not be stung… Rasulullah ﷺ said: «لاَ يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ» A believer is not stung twice from the same hole.[Bukhari, Muslim] We have to reject every kind of ruling system grounded on democracy, with all our power, personality and belief, because this is a requirement of our credo. In addition to this, we have never benefitted from democracy until today. Democracy’s criminal record is not clean at all. Since its existence, it has produced Evil like an Evil factory, and spread corruption everywhere it reached. Is that what democracy inflicted upon us not the warranty for what it will inflict in future? Democracy in and on itself is the source of mischief. Actually, the youth that became captured by the idea of freedom and modernity, which are the bitter fruits of the West, and moved away from their Lord’s consent in the prime of life, tell more than enough about what democracy is. The miserable images of youth, lying on the ground at bus stops, avenues or streets, due to drug overdose are the pictured version of democracy. And the immoral actions, which homosexuals dare to exhibit on the streets where our children play, is also due to democracy’s idea of freedom. The wounds caused by democracy, and the traces it left in the hearts and lives are too numerous to be counted. In short, democracy is the source of discord and mischief. Therefore, the model changes that are based on democracy will not provide any Good (khayr) to the Turkish people.

We know which ruling system will bring Good to the Muslims, and even the humanity, and we try to convey our view to everyone on all occasions. A few years ago, during the transition from the parliamentary system to the presidential system, we had told the truth and the required ruling system, and we continue to tell on every occasion. Democracy-based systems have introduced mankind nothing else but chaos and instability. Today, the Ummah is in need of the commencement of an Islamic life which has stability and trust in itself, and not an old-fusty, outdated regime that is tried to be beautified by fancying up. A livable system of Islam is the guarantor of stability and safety.

Yes, a system change has absolutely to be done. It is needed to change to a system where sovereignty rests unconditionally with the Sharia. It is needed to prefer a ruling model that will implement Islam, which has solutions suitable for the nature with regard to the problems of the mankind in every area of life in whole. And all of these are only possible through the establishment of the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) upon the Method of Prophethood, and not through democracy-based presidential or parliamentary systems.
