Abbotobad incident proves there is no difference between the political and military leadership

By asking American forces to reduce its numbers in Pakistan, the military leadership has granted American forces a license to stay!

For those with political awareness, Kiyani’s statement yesterday at the Corp Commander’s conference is even more disturbing than the Abbotobad attack. The commander of the largest armed forces in the Muslim World is requesting from America that it reduces its troop presence in Pakistan.

This report from the ISPR confirms that not only are the American forces present in Pakistan in huge numbers and are practically operating as they did in Abbotobad, but between the lines, Kiyani has told the people that the American forces are here to stay. So rather than listening to the people’s demand to close the US embassies and bases, cutting the NATO supply line and withdraw from America’s crusade, the commander of the Muslim forces instead announced that the American forces are to stay in Pakistan for an undefined period.

We must not forget that it was Kayani who was the head of the ISI when the innocent children were slaughtered in Jam’ia Hafsa in the Lal Masjid incident. It was Kayani that upon American dictation initiated operations in Swat, Bajour Agency, South Waziristan and Orakzai Agency, killing thousands of Muslims, destroying their houses and means of livelihood. So, there is no doubt that Kiyani and the military leadership are not less than Musharraf, in fact they are a few steps ahead.

Instead of obeying this cowardly leadership and becoming servants to the American enemy forces, Hizb ut-Tahrir calls upon the sincere officers in the armed officers to obey Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم and establish the Khilafah as they ordered. It is the responsibility of the sincere elements within the armed forces to uproot the traitors amongst the military and civilian leadership and give the nussrah to Hizb ut-Tahrir for the establishment of the Khilafah, which will rescue this Ummah from humiliation and restore to her victory and dignity. In order to call the sincere officers of the Pakistan armed forces to this great Fard, the media is requested to fulfill its role and pass the message to the people of power.
