January 2017 is the 6th anniversary of the Arab Spring where a number of rulers who had been in power for decades were overthrown. There was much optimism in those days when Ben Ali of Tunisia fled on a plan and Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, after weeks of protests finally fell. But on the 6th […]
Global Demographic Decline All the research in the last few decades accepted that the world was facing a severe population explosion. Uncontrolled population growth would outstrip scarce resources and devastate the environment. More people would require more resources in the form of food and energy, which in turn would lead to a rise in global […]
In a recent congressional hearing, in front of the US foreign relations committee, Daniel Markey from the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) made a number of telling remarks. In his hearing titled ‘Pakistan: Challenges for U.S. Interests’, he outlined the vulnerability and reliance of the US military on Pakistan. He highlighted, “Pakistan […]
The head of the Fatwa council, Mufti Ghinadin, on the day of the Russian parliamentary elections, called upon all Muslims to display their ‘patriotism’ and fulfil their “religious obligation”. This was in the case where the Council for giving Fatwas in Russia webpage published the following: “The head of the Muslims in Russia reiterated in […]
It was not at all surprising to read the preposterous and at the same time ludicrous arguments made by Chetan in his blog article in Times of India dated August 6, 2016, entitled “How to tackle radical Islam: The more we have dictatorships in the name of religion the more global terrorists will persist.” Just […]
According to the news published by UN News Centre, at the UN summit held on 19 September 2016, world leaders adopt bold plan to enhance protections for refugees and migrants.

On September 18, the UN General Assembly will bring together member states for the first ever Summit on Refugees and Migrants. An already-released draft declaration enshrining the outcomes promises a more coordinated, humane and responsive approach to people on the move. However, its lofty aims are contradicted by the practices of many of the states […]
The modern day superpower politics is nothing but an art of deception. Depending on how well you deceive the populace and your opponents, confirms your stay at the top. Niccolo Machiavelli who is considered the founder of modern political science said in his seminal work, “The Prince,” “Never attempt to win by force what can […]
The West has argued that the Muslim World should adopt her definition of terrorism and accordingly adjust its worldview, and how it approaches conflict resolution.
After years in exile and after years of calling for Islam, the last few weeks have seen Ennahdah do a complete U-turn on Islam. Tunisia was the birth place of the Arab Spring which ushered in an era of unprecedented change in the Middle East. But at a recent conference Ennahda turned its back on […]
This is a chapter from the book ‘Dangerous Concepts to Attack Islam and Consolidate the Western Culture’, by Hizb ut-Tahrir published in 1997. The full book can be downloaded from here. Since the 1970s, America has generated national and international public opinion according to her viewpoint of what constitutes terrorism. She has consistently exploited actions […]
Before the Caliphate was completely destroyed, it was weakened considerably. There were two means of weakening it. First, the Caliphate was made to adopt parts of the capitalist economic system, and there was an adoption of the Mejalleh, codification of Hanafi law on the pattern of Western legal code, in 1878. Then there was the […]
Communism collapsed when it failed to provide its adherents prosperous lives when compared to the capitalist West. But its troubles started well before the grim decade of the 1980’s, when the rot was clear for all to see. The Space and Arms race consumed much of the productive wealth of those living under the Soviet […]
Question: The leaked Panama Papers are still the subject of discussion amongst the media and politicians, especially those named in the documents… I have read an article in Al-Raya Newspaper, Issue No. 73 which concludes that America is behind these leaks… and my question is: Is it true that America is behind these leaks? Moreover, […]
In a declined society hit by crisis after crisis, the first signs of revival are caused by the crisis itself. What the crisis does is shake the society into thinking about what went wrong. Although this thinking process is spread across the whole of society, it is generally more refined among the intellectual circles and […]
Question: Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu Can agent states or satellite (orbiting) states be in conflict with each other? If this is possible, then how can we explain this, if they follow the same major state? Wouldn’t this conflict affect the interests of the major state that they follow? If there is no such […]
The battle has been lost. It began whilst the embers of the last Khilafah State were still burning, soon to be extinguished. Whilst the poet’s ink was fresh on the page, when he cried, The wedding songs turned into echoes of mourning, And your death was announced within the signs of joy, You were shrouded […]
As the Muslim world continues to suffer at the hands of the colonialists and their puppet regimes, the effects of these conflicts have reached the shores of the colonialists themselves. The media in recent weeks has been occupied by the refugee “crisis” which has seen 350,000 people attempt to make it to Europe. These refugees […]
Every year on the 4th July, Americans commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th 1776. Thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America and were severed from the British Empire. There’s no doubt that the current generation of America will be indoctrinated with US patriotism and […]
The means and styles utilised by the disbelievers in their war against the Muslims have varied since they dealt a decisive blow against their political entity: ‘The Khilafah’. They killed that tender mother leaving her sons afflicted by a great loss and so they lost their political caretaker. Then in order to prevent the Muslims […]
In the case where political awareness means viewing the world from a specific angle, its existence within the Ummah means the existence of the greatest weapon that protects it from falling and collapse. This is because this political awareness consists of two matters that are of extreme importance and these are: The world view and […]

Since the Peshawar tragedy where more than 130 school children were killed on 16th December 2014, the government has announced stern actions. It has made severe changes in legislation including the amendment to the Army Act while turning a blind eye to the increasing American footprint in the region. Thus, the regime has callously exploited the anger of the public over the tragedy to further the American “war on terror” by bombarding the areas inhabited by mujahedeen fighting in Afghanistan. It is also making laws to curb support enjoyed by Afghan Mujahideen in the past. Not only this, the regime has taken all the steps it can to obstruct the call to Islam and the system of life that emanates from it. It is spreading fear amongst the people through arresting men, and even a woman with a child, without any discrimination.
Only the Khilafah Will Protect the Non-Muslims in Muslim Lands
Fourteen people were killed and more than 70 injured when two suicide bombers attacked churches in Lahore on 15 March, sparking mob violence in which two other suspected militants died. Up to 4,000 Christians later took to the streets of Lahore, many armed with clubs as they smashed vehicles and attacked a city bus station in a rare show of anger. The bombings occurred during prayers at two churches located around half a kilometre apart in the city’s Youhanabad neighbourhood that is home to more than 100,000 Christians, officials said. Yet, again the regime has failed in its responsibility because it allows the Raymond Davis network to function on our soil, American spies who plan and buy assassins to create chaos within Pakistan. It failed, as it did not evict the hostile foreign personnel from our soil, whether it is intelligence, private military or diplomatic staff.
“Alif Lam Mim. The Romans have been defeated. In the nearest land, and they, after their defeat, will be victorious. In Bid’i years. The decision of the matter, before and after is only with Allah. And on that day, the believers will rejoice.”
Democracy is Corrupt Because Men Make Laws
Post Senate elections, over a lunch meeting of 10 March with the heads of major political parties, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif endorsed Monday night’s nomination by opposition parties of PPP leader Raza Rabbani as the new Chairman of the Senate. However, the people were absolutely disgusted with the news about money playing a large role in the recent Senate polls in Pakistan, then a bit of perspective and history would help channel the disgust towards the right target. This is not about corrupt politicians or corrupt parties. This is about democracy. And this is evident in Lincoln’s attempt to pass the 13th Amendment. On 18th December 1865, then US Secretary of State William Seward announced the adoption of the 13th Amendment which was aimed at ending slavery in the US (which practically continued for more than a century afterwards). Initially the US House of Representatives failed to pass the amendment falling 13 votes short of the two-thirds majority required for adopting the amendment. President Abraham Lincoln instructed Secretary of State Seward to secure the required number of votes by whatever means possible. Seward was given a large fund for direct bribes. He also promised government posts and campaign funds to multiple lawmakers to “win them over” to support the amendment.
9th March 2015: “The ‘Dying Russian Nation’ Is Not Unique” (Source : Forbes)
Among elite pundits, it is received wisdom that Russia is a “dying nation.” Everyone knows that Russia, ruled by a bloody and incompetent gang of thieves, is in a demographic “death spiral” which will inevitably send it into the abyss. Furthermore, elite pundits “know” that the only way this decline can be arrested is if Russia embarks on a path of democratic, liberal reform. After all, everyone knows that the other post-Communist countries that embraced free markets, democracy, and the rule of law have fared much better.
The PML-N and PTI have been shuttling between the Pakistani opposition parties, since the arrival of former President Zardari on 26 February. This shuttling is to get their consensus on the proposed 22nd Amendment that would force party members to vote for their party candidates and for the ballot to be done in an open manner rather than the secret ballot that has characterized past senate elections. The PPP and JUI-F have opposed the proposed amendment, whereas the MQM has championed it arguing that it would end horse-trading in the senate elections.
