As summer temperatures soar, hundreds of thousands of Muslims, who fled from the war in Swat are facing immense suffering, deprived of even the most basic of needs, such as electricity, drinking water and clothing. Whilst on the other hand the rulers of Pakistan, sitting in air conditioned rooms and corridors of power, are toasting to the success of the American plan of turning Muslims against Muslims.
As for those Muslimss who are unable to leave their homes and the lives they had built over generations, they have become victim to weeks of shelling and bombing, unable to inform their loved ones about whether they are dead or alive and hidden from the eyes of the world. And dozens of Muslim soldiers of the Pakistan Army who were trained with the concept of fighting against kuffar Fee Sabeelilllah have become fuel to this American war, and lost their lives. And as far as the militants are concerned, as always it is being announced that many militants have escaped the operation, so whenever the government needs a justification to launch operations in any other area at the behest of America, these militants will re-appear, conveniently. These are the dire consequences of this American war, a war announced whilst Pakistan’s President was sitting in Washington, taking instruction from American officials.
Yet the miseries and troubles are far from over. America is now demanding an even wider war by insisting the war is expanded to include the Tribal Areas, from where it has faced the most resistance to its occupation in Afghanistan. On 20 May 2009, barely two weeks since the Swat operations began, the US Ambassador to Pakistan, Anne Patterson, said, “In a dire scenario the US, UK or let us say China can be attacked from the Tribal Areas. We have to do everything possible to avoid this scenario.” The very next day thousands started to flee the Tribal Areas as the government deployed troops there. Then on 22 May, Pakistan’s President, Asif Ali Zardari, declared his willingness to expand the war as much as pleases America. Zardari said, “I had said the government would eliminate militancy wherever it felt the need to do so.” In fact the plan for operations in the Tribal Areas is not for the sake of Muslims but to save America, which has been deprived of international support and hope of victory, in her so-called war on terror. Indeed, the US Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Mr. Richard Holbrooke, in his testimony to the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, confirmed that the US cannot succeed in Afghanistan unless safe heavens in Pakistan are eradicated.
In order to support the failing crusade, America demands a public opinion in Pakistan favoring military operations at all costs. This is why when the media propaganda began to fail, as the reality of the Swat operation become clear to the Muslims of Pakistan, America resorted to her old crooked means, as used before in Iraq. So, bomb blasts were arranged in Peshawar and Lahore, and America’s loyal agent, the Interior Minister, Rehman Malik, immediately linked the blasts with militants in Swat, in order to try to turn public opinion back in favor of the American war. Significantly, US Centcom chief, General David Petraeus, was in Pakistan on a secret trip at the time. Indeed, American officials do not visit Pakistan for tourism; they visit to supervise their dictated plans. And their every visit heralds further turmoil and destruction for the Muslims of Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Moreover, Pakistan’s rulers try their upmost to turn the attention of the Muslims away from the US political and military presence in the region and the brutal operations of US intelligence agencies, even though this American presence is the very cause of instability, chaos and bomb blasts. Hence through media propaganda, the Indian involvement in the NWFP and the Tribal Areas is highlighted, claims are made from time to time that the captured militants are not circumcised, and at other times it is said that these militant are getting aid from India. But these rulers never dare to say that the root cause of this fitna is America, because it is America who opened the gates of Afghanistan to India, so that India can help America in lighting the fires of chaos in Pakistan. And if it is really India who is destabilizing an entire province of Pakistan, then why do these rulers not take stern action against India? Why they do not cut diplomatic ties with India? Why do they not demand that Karzai’s government closes the Indian consulates in Afghanistan? These rulers will never do so, because their master America has not allowed them to do so. Indian involvement is in accordance with US policy, as announced by Obama, so Pakistan’s rulers have accepted the interference by the Hindu State, on the orders of US, as loyal slaves.
These rulers are trying their utmost to save America from failure. They are not only providing logistic support for fuel, food and weapons for the American and allied forces via Pakistan, but they have also placed the largest Muslim army, and the seventh largest army of the world, at America’s disposal. The Pakistan Army has been deployed in thousands along the Pak-Afghan border, in order to save cowardly American and NATO forces from the attacks of the mujahideen. Within Pakistan, the army is conducting military operations in areas like Swat, and now these rulers are entrapping the Pakistan Army, whose moto is “Jihad fi Sabeelillah” into the Tribal Areas, where America has not succeeded in over eight years. These rulers are making Muslims fight Muslims, although Allah سبحانه وتعالى has reserved four severe penalties for the killing of a Muslim brother- living in Jahannum as an abode, the wrath of Allah سبحانه وتعالى, the curse of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and a great punishment.
Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,
وَمَن يَقْتُلْ مُؤْمِناً مُّتَعَمِّداً فَجَزَآؤُهُ جَهَنَّمُ خَالِداً فِيهَا وَغَضِبَ اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَلَعَنَهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُ عَذَاباً عَظِيماً
“And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the Wrath and the Curse of Allâh are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him.” [Surah An-Nisa’a 4:93]
And RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said in the Final Pilgrimage, Hajjat Wida’a, لا ترجعوا بعدي كفاراً يضرب بعضكم رقاب بعض
“Do not return to Kufr after me, some of you striking the necks of other”
These rulers present turning Muslims against Muslims as if it were the only option. If only these rulers took the option of rejecting America, challenging her interests and withdrawing their support of America in Afghanistan, they would witness that not only the Muslims of the Tribal Areas, but the entire Ummah, would stand shoulder to shoulder with them. But these rulers took the option of cowardice and slavery, rather than honor and bravery, and this option only leads to humiliation and dishonor. These rulers have gained the wrath and curses of the Muslim of Pakistan and beyond, whilst the kuffar, rather than been satisfied with them, have only ordered them to “do more.” And all this is in addition to the wrath of Allah سبحانه وتعالى on the Day of Judgment, the severest of all.
And as far as the “rain of dollars” is concerned, which occurred since these rulers presented the gift of the corpses of the Muslims of Swat to their masters, dollars also rained at the time of Musharraf, when he sold the Muslims of Afghanistan to America, but these dollars did not help Pakistan then and they will not now. Despite these dollars, the country is immersed in load shedding, the economy is at the verge of collapse and Muslims are committing suicide through hunger. Indeed, Muslims will never gain khair and prosperity by forsaking Allah سبحانه وتعالى and RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم in order to please kuffar. Success for Muslims lies in supporting Allah’s deen, rather than strengthening the hands of kuffar.
And the intellectual bankruptcy of these rulers has no bounds. They are not even inclined to listen to the truth, although they talk about democracy and freedom of expression, day and night. So the government was alarmed when Hizb ut Tahrir launched its campaign for stopping this American war, as a result of which the lies of government propaganda were pulverized. The people realized that the unverified video of lashing and unsubstantiated clips of slaughtering were mere propaganda to justify the horrific operation against the people of Swat. They realized that the way to deal the militants is not to bomb houses and leave people to starvation by applying curfew and not providing the means to leave the battlefield safely. And the Muslims also started to feel that after Iraq, America is seeking to make Muslims fight Muslims to save herself. Not only were the rulers alarmed at the shift of the public opinion, to please their kuffar masters they resorted to harassing, threatening, arresting and torturing the Shebaab of Hizb ut Tahrir. They put more than a 100 people behind bars after the rallies of Hizb ut Tahrir on 31st May 2009. Their slavery to the kuffar was to such an extent that the security agencies intruded the Lahore residence of some of the Shebaab of Hizb ut Tahrir and took their elderly father, violating the sanctity of the rooms of secluded women of house, under the pretext of search. In all these inhumane actions the provincial government of the PML-N was at the forefront. No doubt the real face of the Shareef brothers is as ugly as that of PPP leadership, though they have insisted on a veil of liking of Islam and compassion for Muslims. However, for those who are aware of the reality of their meetings with American and British officials in Washington and London and the steps they are taking to please kuffar, there is no surprise at all.
About these actions of these rulers, we say, مُوتُوا بِغَيْظِكُمْ “Die in your anger” [Surah Aal-Imran 3:119] for by Allah سبحانه وتعالى. these actions have only consolidated the resolve of the sincere Shebaab of Hizb ut Tahrir. They are more active with more confidence and inshAllah they will continue their struggle until the promise of Allah سبحانه وتعالى comes and the Islamic Khilafah State arises again. And that day will be very hard and humiliating, for these rulers.
O Muslims of Pakistan!
Since America has entered in this region, the Muslims are burning in the fires of chaos, bomb blasts and instability. But the rulers of Pakistan continuously try to prove that this situation is because of you, rather than the America. Had these rulers been sincere in eliminating chaos and instability, they would have acted immediately to eject America, end support for the so-called war on terror, end logistic support for fuel, food and weapons for the American and allied forces via Pakistan, and kick out American intelligence agencies from Pakistan. But they will never do this, because these rulers want an environment of chaos to persist, rather they are helping America to spread chaos, so that the justification for America to stay in the region remains. No doubt these rulers have chosen slavery to America and desire that you join them in this slavery and abandon submission to Allah سبحانه وتعالى and RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم. However the oppression and treachery of these rulers will not last forever. RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَيُمْلِي لِلظَّالِمِ حَتَّى إِذَا أَخَذَهُ لَمْ يُفْلِتْهُ “Allah grants respite to the unjust, until He gets hold of him, then He will not leave him.” [ Bukhari]
O Armed Forces of Pakistan!
Enough is enough! Uproot the cursed government of Zardari, do not obey those commanders that order you to fight your brothers and discard all those amongst you who call for fitna and civil war. Reject this civil war and save yourselves from being used as fodder in the schemes of America and Europe and their agents in Afghanistan and Pakistan..
RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, فإن دماءكم وأموالكم وأعراضكم عليكم حرام كحرمة يومكم هذا في بلدكم هذا في شهركم هذا – أعادها مراراً “Indeed your blood, your wealth and your honour is forbidden as a sanctity as this day, as these lands and as this month” and he repeated it.
Know that there is no compromise or similarity between obedience of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and rebellion against Him سبحانه وتعالى, or between the Divine orders and the orders of Taghoot, or between sincerity to the deen of Allah and surrender to the plans of the kuffar and their slaves, the agent rulers of Muslims. RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: لَا طَاعَةَ لِمَخْلُوقٍ فِي مَعْصِيَةِ اللَّهِ “Do not obey the creation in a matter of disobedience to Allah.”
So, is there not a man amongst you who will make a stand for the Truth and turn the tide of despair? Are there not amongst you men who would grant Nussrah for the establishment of the Khilafah and announce a state of war against America? Who will perform this single sincere action that would earn the unconditional support of the entire Ummah and the rewards that only the Lord of the Worldسبحانه وتعالى can bestow?
