Does the Arrest of Someone who distributes a Guiding Leaflet Fall under the Preserving of Public and Private Property?

The National Security and Intelligence Services announced the release of most of the detainees during the recent demonstrations, after the completion of the relevant security measures, while the investigations regarding the rest of the detainees continue… The director of the media of the security services said that the measures taken by the services are precautionary towards the detainees, under the natural context of preserving public and private property, in coordination with other government forces.

The Security and Intelligence Service in Al-Obyaid City has arrested Brother Muhammad Ahmad Mahmoud from the members of Hizb ut Tahrir since Wednesday, 26/12/2018. He has not released by the time this statement was written, although he was not arrested from the place of demonstrations and did not carry out any physical action; like burning and destroying of public and private property. Rather Mahmoud was arrested from inside the house of Allah, and the reason for his arrest is because he distributed a leaflet issued by Hizb ut Tahrir/ Wilayah of Sudan entitled “Let It Be a Fortified Revolution that Achieves Its Goals of Real Change”.

A leaflet that advises the revolutionaries and the Security services to abide by Islam and its rules. It urged the revolutionaries to make their goal the resumption of the Islamic way of life by establishing the second Khilafah Rashida (Guided Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood.  And the rejection of any change based on non-Islamic basis. At the same time, the leaflet cautioned them against destroying public and private property. It also demanded from the security services not kill, beat or intimidate demonstrators, because this is all Haram and carries severe punishment on the Last Day.

The leaflet also asked the people of power and protection to be like the Ansar (supporters) who supported the Messenger of Allah ﷺ to establish the first state of Islam, and urged them to repeat the same action and give the support (Nusra) to Hizb ut Tahrir to establish the second Khilafah Rashida (Guided Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood… Does the action of our noble Brother Muhammad Ahmad Mahmoud fall under the circle of corruption or reform?! What is the matter with you, how do you judge?

Release Brother Muhammad Ahmad Mahmoud immediately and fear Allah, and abide by the truth, and do not support the corrupting and corrupters, otherwise Allah will resurrect you with them on a day in which money and children will be of no benefit, and the ones who will be saved then are only those who meet Allah with a sound heart.
