Arrests of Hizb ut Tahrir Members in Both Taiz and Aden

The Houthi militia arrested Brother. Abdullah Ahmad Naji, 39 years old, from his work place in the Zaila’i district of the Damnah Khadeer of Taiz province following the distribution of a leaflet entitled: “Conflicting Parties are Leading the People of Yemen from Fire to Fire to Serve the Colonists. O People of Yemen, Beware of the Fire of the Lord of the Worlds”.

Members of Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Yemen distributed the leaflet in many provinces. The party explained in the leaflet the extent of the service given by the conflicting parties to the colonial kuffar, led by America and Britain, which are fighting each other for Yemen with their local and regional instruments for influence and wealth.  The leaflet also exposed the reality of the conflict taking place that it is an Anglo-American international conflict for Yemen, showing its local and regional instruments. Finally, the leaflet called on the parties to the conflict in Yemen to refer to Islam and its rules and not to the United Nations, which sow discord and ignite conflicts among the people of Yemen to serve the American Agenda, which has the upper hand in it and which harnesses it to achieve its interests in the world at the expense of its people.

At the same time, the forces controlling the Aden province of the so-called “legitimate (Authority)” have arrested two members of Hizb ut Tahrir from the Aden province, and they are all still detained until this moment.

These arrests against the members of Hizb ut Tahrir indicate that the conflicting  parties  in Yemen, both the Houthis party- the so-called “coup rebels” or the Hadi party, the so-called “legitimate (Authority)”, are afraid of the word of truth which calls for ending the conflict and ending wars and strife that spread misery to the people in the struggle for power and wealth between these parties; it lead to what the people of Yemen experience of hunger, unemployment and the spread of deadly diseases. The conflict destroyed the land and people; there are no salaries, no services and care, but a crazy rise in prices and the tax collection of the remaining funds of people, and looting of public property and control and imprisonment and muzzling the mouths of the people.  The people suffered from a prolonged war and conflict for nearly three lean years in which they have lived in a big prison, and are brunt from the fire of the conflicting parties; they do not feel safe for themselves or their Deen in a country called the Yemen of Iman (belief) and Hikma (wisdom)!!

Hizb ut Tahrir does not call for fighting and sedition, rather, it calls for stopping it and returning to Shariah, using thoughts to convey to the people its idea. It does not carry arms against society and does not carry out material acts as a method for the change it calls for. Hizb ut Tahrir does not discriminate between Muslims in Yemen and other Muslim countries on the basis of sectarian, doctrinal, dynastic or regional basis, and it accounts and exposes all those who violate Islam; this is by adhering to the Shariah method, following the example of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. The party addresses the parties to refer to Shariah law and work to establish a righteous state that unifies them – The Khilafah state on the method of Prophethood. Despite all of this, these parties arrest the Dawah carriers, the members of Hizb ut Tahrir. The work for Islam and calling for it as a reference point and calling the parties to stop the war are considered a crime by both sides because these parties are only traders of wars and incite sedition.

We called and still call those who are fighting in the name of the people of Yemen and who control them to stop harming the Muslim people of Yemen and to stop the destructive internal and external wars to the country and the people. We also call upon them to stop harming the members of Hizb ut Tahrir who carry the Dawah of Islam and call for its return in life, and to release the oppressed, whoever they may be. Truly, oppression will perish however long it may live. Hizb ut Tahrir will remain steadfast in the cause of Allah, working for its cause and committed to its method until its goal is achieved by establishing the righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood. No matter how much they try to extinguish the light of the word of truth with their criminal acts which are not from Islam, Allah will complete his light even if they detest it, and tomorrow -for those who yearn for it- is near.
