Hizb ut Tahrir Russia Directs Message to the Rulers of Russia Hand-Delivered to the Kremlin

Oh Rulers in Russia!

Know that you are accountable to the people about what is happening in the country

The year 2013 was a black year against Islam and Muslims in Russia. The war on Islam and Muslims has raged furiously and increased in severity this year, especially on the 16th of January, when the Al-Ikhlas Mosque in Kazan was closed, and was then demolished from its foundation under the pretext of rebuilding, and those responsible for it were considered terrorists and extremists.

On the 15th of July, under a decision of the Supreme Court in Stavropol, a ban was placed on wearing headscarves in educational institutions, and as a result of this unjust decision Muslim girls were expelled from school. There is no doubt that the implementation of this resolution in Tatarstan or Dagestan is only a matter of time, since the decision of the Supreme Court becomes law in all of Russia, and Russia regards Tatarstan and Dagestan as part of it.

Over the past years several Islamic literatures has been prohibited, such as Ibn Hisham’s Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, Sahih al-Bukhari, and even the book on Du’aa (Safeguard for a Muslim) has been banned.

On the 17th of September 2013, through a decision of the Court of Novorossiysk, the translation of the meanings of the Quran written by author Kuliyev was banned since it was considered to incite extremism. This is in itself a ban of Islam, which is a declaration of war against Allah Almighty.

On the 16th of September 2013 well-known dawah carrier Gappaev Abdullah, a member of Hizb ut Tahrir, was killed in front of the door of his home in the city of Kazlar, because he sincerely called to Allah, openly and without material action. So why was he killed? And for what?

Every day in Russia abductions, arrests and killings of Muslims take place, only because they abide by their religion and are keen to preserve it. All of this happens without trials. The investigators consider Muslims to be an armed opposition, therefore killing and overpowering them.

On the 5th of August 2013, the AMON group in Khasavyurt attacked women with batons who had gone out to demonstrate inquiring about their children and brothers.

More than 20 million Muslims live in Russia, do you really think they will keep silent about all of this? The Muslims believe in one God, Allah Almighty Alone, their Book is one and their Qibla is one! They will not stand deedless in face of your oppression.

Oh Rulers in Russia!

Stop your prosecution of Muslims, stop the war on Islam, the Deen of the Lord of the worlds, to whose Hands we recommend you! Allah سبحانه وتعالى says:

وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ

“They plotted and Allah plotted. But Allah is the best of plotters.”

(Ali-Imran, 3:54)
