According to media reports, the Swiss authorities have recently blocked a shipment of surveillance equipment purchased by RAB (Rapid Action Battalion), a government force. The equipment, known as “International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) Catcher” is a strong surveillance equipment which is used for recording phone calls and collecting personal data through intervening the mobile network. It was purchased to extend the surveillance on people who pose a threat to the government. The officials involved in the procurement of this equipment have informed the government about the clogging and asked her help to get the equipment ASAP.
With the reporting of this news and a recent incident of Viber-scandal of a self-declared retired politician, the matter of spying on the Muslims by shameless Hasina government once again came to the spotlight. From the moment she came to power in 2008, she and her government have done many evil deeds against the Ummah which includes the killing of 57 army officers in BDR headquarters, surrendering the natural resources to her imperialist masters, killings of thousands of ordinary Muslims, allowing the Kuffar to roam around the country to help her suppress the Muslims and so on. And now, she and her colleague Khaleda made this country a death-zone. Hasina is killing and persecuting the Ummah by using her collaborators in the security forces and Khaleda is killing the Ummah in the name of protest and blockade. Ultimately the people have no trust in this system and its rulers and Hasina has a clear knowledge of this fact. She knows it very well that the only way she can survive and stay in power is by way of oppression and tyranny. For this very reason, she devised an ugly plan to violate the privacy of the Ummah by using this kind of surveillance equipment to locate and detain the sincere persons who are raising their voices against her crimes against the Ummah. In doing so, the purchase of “IMSI Catcher” is one of her numerous attempts. Among the other tools she is using to spy on the Muslims are different softwares and contractors. She is spending millions of dollars in doing this crime.
Hasina should know that Allah سبحانه وتعالى has made it haram to violate the privacy of any Muslim and like other harams she does as a ruler, it will only increase her agony and it will not prevent the downfall of her regime and the system, let alone the punishment of Allah سبحانه وتعالى in the Hereafter. Millions of people are not getting proper food and sleeping in the open sky and she is spending money to secure her throne. The price of the ordinary commodity is getting out of reach of the mass people and instead of solving this issue she is plotting against them. The industrial sector is fading away in the political turmoil and she is busy to please her masters. The noble Ummah of this country will not tolerate this anymore. The voice for Khilafah is becoming louder and louder day by day. With the help of Allah سبحانه وتعالى this Ummah will soon bring her to book and drag her alive through the stinky filth of the streets. The day is not so far when the believers will rejoice and the Kuffar and agents like her will suffer the consequences of their deeds. Allah سبحانه وتعالى says,
فَإِذَا جَاء أَمْرُ اللَّهِ قُضِيَ بِالْحَقِّ وَخَسِرَ هُنَالِكَ الْمُبْطِلُونَ
“So when the command of Allah comes, it will be concluded in truth, and the falsifiers will thereupon lose.”
The carriers of Dawah and other believers should not be despaired or frightened by seeing these attempts of the Kuffar and their agents. They should keep faith in the promise of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and remain steadfast in the correct methodology of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. They should work hard to awaken the Iman of the common people and the people of power. With help from the people of power and strong support from the Ummah the Khilafah will rise soon to annihilate all injustice from this world. Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in the Glorious Quran:
وَقُلْ جَاء الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا
“And say: Truth has (now) arrived, and falsehood perished: for falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish.”
