On 2nd April 2019, a two member delegation of Hizb ut Tahrir in Ukraine visited the embassy of People’s Republic of China in Kiev. The visit was a part of Hizb ut Tahrir’s global campaign in support of the brutally oppressed Uighyr Muslims in China.
The aim of this visit was to deliver Hizb ut Tahrir’s message about the persecution of Muslims in China – the Uyghurs. The Chinese embassy officials refused to receive the Hizb delegation with a reason that such visits should be preliminary confirmed, but they agreed to receive the message.
The message consisted from press release of the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir titled “Khilafah will Liberate East Turkistan and will Free the Uyghurs from China’s Criminal Oppression” in five languages: Arabic, Chinese, Uygur, English and Ukrainian.
The press release briefly lists the Chinese authorities crimes against Uyghur Muslims which are attempts to suppress any Islamic manifestation, closing of mosques, prohibition practicing rituals, preventing from fasting in the blessed month of Ramadan, up to the establishment of large detention centers, holding behind its walls over one million Muslims aiming to “reeducate them”. The message also stresses attention on the fact that cowardly stand of so called Muslim rulers, who ignore Chinese crimes against Muslims because of trade relations, is not the stand of the Islamic Ummah. On the contrary, the Islamic Ummah feels rage from the crimes of the Chinese government and in near time will break the chains that were imposed on her by the current rulers of the Muslims, to protect the oppressed.
The message ends with warnings that in near time Second Khilafah Rashidah (Righteous Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood will emerge in the Muslim world and Khaleefah will be responsible for protecting all Muslims including Uyghur people. In that time the nature of relations between Islamic Ummah and China will be the same as relations like heroic leader Qutaybah bin Muslim, the leader of the Muslim armies, who forced Chinese leaders of that time to obey Muslims orders and pay Jizya.
We ask Allah to stop sufferings of Uyghur Muslims and unite all Muslims in one state under one ruler – the Khaleefah, which will protect all the suppressed Muslims all over the world. Amen.
