Evil Scholars are the Regime’s Mouthpieces!

Recently, Uzbek TV channels have broadcasted various programs under the title “War on Terror and Extremism”. The aim of these programs is to spread terror and fear among people especially among the youth! They also broadcasted a program entitled “The Trap in the Internet” in which the presenter said that some young people joined the different (terrorist and extremist) movements, and that they do not appreciate the life of prosperity in Uzbekistan and became ungrateful to the blessings! One of these young people is Qudrat Jan Mummadov, a student at the Tashkent University of Information Technology. According to the presenter’s claims, this young man planned sabotage activities and betrayed his country and nation. As usual, two of the government scholars, i.e. evil scholars, participated in the program: Rahim Berdy Rahmanov, the chief imam of the city of Tashkent, and Sayed Afdhal Sayed Jalalov, the chief teacher of the International Academy of Islam in Uzbekistan. And both complained about the lack of understanding by the youth to the nature of Islam and non-adherence to the school of thought (Madhab) of Abu Hanifa and not following the official scholars… how regrettable!

Now we want to ask the following questions: Is life in Uzbekistan really a life of prosperity as claimed by these praising mouthpieces of the regime? Did the young people not value this life of luxury and became ungrateful? Why don’t the youth follow the official scholars?

Let us consider the reality:

Focus Economics’ experts have revealed the world’s 10 poorest countries, and the three countries of Central Asia – Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan – have been included in this list. In 2018, Uzbekistan’s GDP per capita occupied the eighth place in the list of the poorest countries in the world. Uzbekistan has taken a place in the ranks of the world’s poorest countries such as the Congo, Mozambique and Uganda in Africa and Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia.

According to the statistics of the Federation of Immigrants in Russia, published by the prominent site Podrobno.Uz, between January and September 2018, 3 million and 400.000 Uzbek citizens went to Russia, of which 1 million and 573,791 are migrant workers who went out to look for a living!!

These two facts only show the reality of life in Uzbekistan!!

Is this the life of luxury in Uzbekistan?!! So, are these people who went to Russia to look for a living, are all these people – according to your claim – have not appreciated the life of prosperity and are ungrateful, and left their families, their children and their country and its pure skies- as you often repeat like parrots – and went to the foreign countries?!!

Why do the people of Uzbekistan live in such extreme poverty?! Is there no natural wealth in Uzbekistan? On the contrary, Uzbekistan is rich in natural resources. There is many and various wealth sources on and under the ground. Let us look at the facts:

The Strategic Culture Fund provided the following information:

“In five regions of Uzbekistan, oil and gas are extracted, and these are: Ustyurt, Bukhara-Khiva, south-west of Hezar, Surkhan, Darya and Ferghana, and oil resources in the Republic’s territory are more than 5.3 billion tons, gas condensers are 480 million tons. And natural gas is 6.25 billion cubic meters According to information in 2003, the oil and gas resources in Uzbekistan is estimated at 1 trillion dollars!”

But where does this vast wealth go? Most people of Uzbekistan in many places are using – so far – cattle dung to set fire! Because the gas in Uzbekistan is extracted by the company “Gazprom” for gas, and the company “Lukoil” the Russian which sells it to China!

This is for oil and gas only!! In Uzbekistan – along with wealth such as gold and various minerals – cotton, silkworm and other agricultural products are also produced. Moreover, the fertile soil of Uzbekistan and its people are a work-loving people, but these vast resources and wealth are looted by the colonial Kuffar and they still loot them!

Now we go back to the subject. The conflict between truth and falsehood, between Islam and Kufr – as is known – will continue to the Day of Judgement. It is also known that the Kafir West after it destroyed the state of Islam, it divided the Muslim countries and made them small petty states, and appointed a puppet tyrant ruler over each! Uzbekistan was also one of Russia’s colonies and “farm”. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Uzbekistan became a battleground for interests between Russia, China, America and Europe, because Uzbekistan’s vast wealth and cheap labour makes those colonialists salivate (craving) for them. When Islam returns to life, the days of these colonists end, and they know this well, so they try and exert their utmost effort to prevent the revival on the basis of Islam in Muslim countries, including Uzbekistan. These television programs are prepared on the orders of these colonists. They also used government scholars and still do!

Here we would like to ask the following questions to those who are engaged in the preparation of these programs and to the government scholars:

Is this the prosperity of living in Uzbekistan which you praise a lot?!

Why are you silent and do not say even one word about the crimes and massacres committed and still committed by America and Russia in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other Islamic countries?!

Why are you silent over the brutal crimes committed and still committed by China against Muslims in East Turkestan and did not say anything about these crimes not even one word?! The Muslims in East Turkistan follow the school of thought (Madhab) of Abu Hanifa and adhere to it, isn’t that so?!

O government scholars: Your claim that you follow the school of thought (Madhab) of Abu Hanifa is a shameless lie! Because Abu Hanifa, may Allah have mercy on him, wrote in his book “Al-Fiqh Al-Akbar” (the greatest jurisprudence) a section called “The Appointment of the Imam is a Duty (wajib)”!! That is, to appoint a Khalifah on the Muslims is a duty (wajib)!! In the jurisprudence of Abu Hanifa, there are also Shariah rules, such as the rules of jihad, borders and the judiciary, which the state implements! Why don’t you speak about these rules to Muslims and you are silent?! Do you believe in some of the Book and disbelieve in some like the Jews?! You used to be as such during the presidency of the Jewish tyrant Karimov whom you also praised and justified his heinous crime against Muslims! Now you are the same, just like before, you have not changed. If the tyrant bans the jilbab (women’s outer garment), which is a Shariah rule, you praise this ban! If the enemies of Islam remove the jilbab of Muslim women and the Muslim girls, you praise this ugly act too! If children are banned from mosques, you justify this too and praise it! And if the West, led by America, Russia and China, called Muslims terrorists, you repeat it behind them like parrots! In the 1920s, communist Russia, the occupier, described our brave fathers who defended Uzbekistan and the rest of our Central Asian countries from the Russian occupiers as “occupiers”! Today history repeats itself, but you do not say anything about this and you remain silent!!

Why did the revolutions of the Arab Spring, including the Syrian revolution, take place? Do you think the Muslims in those countries – in your opinion – became ungrateful and did not appreciate the prosperity of their lives and revolted against their rulers?! Not so, but these Muslims revolted because they were fed up with the injustice of capitalism. Even the people of the West are fed up with this injustice. But you do not mention anything about this not even one word! In Syria, Asad, the American tyrant agent, dropped chemical bombs – more than once – at the heads of Muslim children and women and their elders and killed thousands of men, women and children! Millions of people have become refugees. Russia has dropped bombs on Syrian towns and villages. But you do not say anything about this not even one word! Or have you become “dumb Shaytans (devils)”?!

Do you realize now why you are not followed by young people? Because your lies are exposed to the youth, and you have sold your Hereafter with the Duniya of the Kuffar! Will the youth follow you in this state of lowliness?! No, they will not follow you because the Ummah revived by the work of Hizb ut Tahrir. The events of the Arab Spring and the Syrian revolution have shown that the Ummah has destroyed the wall of fear and broke free from the chains and shackles that the Western Kuffar and their puppets, the tyrant rulers have tied it with.

And soon, Allah willing, the Khilafah Rashida (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood will be established. And then you – if you are alive – will be referred to the judiciary, and the torment of the Hereafter is more severe and worse!!

يُرِيدُونَ أَن يُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى اللَّهُ إِلَّا أَن يُتِمّ نُورَهُ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ

They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it
