Certainly the Government’s Agency is involved in the Abduction of Hizb ut-Tahrir Members

On 14th March the Deputy Attorney General read out a letter from the ISI in front of the Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court, Mr. Iqbal Hameed ur Rehman, and denied its involvement in the abduction of members of Hizb ut-Tahrir. As a matter of fact the ISI accused Hizb ut-Tahrir members of going underground to undertake militant and subversive activities.

Hizb ut-Tahrir completely rejects the answer of this government agency and declares it a pack of lies. Until today Dr.Abdul Qayyum is languishing in a torture cell of this government agency. Everyone knows that these agencies abduct citizens of Pakistan, kill them and throw their bodies in deserted places upon the orders of America as executed by Zardari, Gilllani and Kiyani. Even today just like the mothers and sisters of Kashmir, mothers and sisters of Pakistan are camped in front of parliament house, crying and holding photographs of their loved ones.

Are thousands of these people liars and the government agencies are truthful?

What is the difference between an Indian POTA law and Anti-Terrorist Act of Pakistan?

What is the difference between Indian agencies thug who declares Jihad as terrorism and a Pakistani agency which tortures those people who want the implementation of Islam?

In July last year several members of Hizb ut-Tahrir were abducted in front of witnesses from their houses or markets in Multan, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Rahim Yar Khan. Several constitutional petitions against government agencies were filed concerning these abductions. Because of the pressure of these petitions, several members were released after severely torturing them with a warning that they will not contact media and judiciary.

However, brave members of Hizb ut-Tahrir immediately recorded their statements in front of magistrates after their release and held the ISI responsible for their abduction and nominated Major Tariq as an accused. Even today these government agencies have not released Dr. Abdul Qayyum, after seven months of his abduction, because so far they have not been able to get the assurance from relatives that they will not follow judicial process after his release.

We advise the Muslim officers in these agencies to abandon the practice of torturing Muslims and they should not follow the footsteps of Abu Lahab and Abu Jahel. Do the sincere officers in these agencies not see that America has pulled the ISI out from India and is now using her against their fellow Muslim brothers? America has finished the regional role of ISI and is using it to run after their Muslim brothers. The Jihad of Kashmir has been abandoned and now America is using the ISI to kill the Muslims of the Tribal Areas and Afghanistan. On top of that America presents ISI as a terrorist organization internationally in order to put more pressure on ISI to fulfil its interests.

Do the officers of these agencies not see that they are torturing sincere Muslims in order to help America? Whilst Americans are burning Quran, killing women and children in their houses, officers of ISI are just securing their jobs by selling their honor?

Moreover, in order to please America they are not just selling their honor rather they are ruining their hereafter. We warn these treacherous rulers and their supporters that their persecution will not deter Hizb and its members from struggling peacefully for the establishment of Khilafah. These agent rulers and their supporters must keep in mind that very soon they will be brought to justice for their crimes, after the establishment of Khilafah while punishment of hereafter will be far greater.
