Hizb ut-Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan has issued a Publicized Policy Position (PPP) regarding both state and private media, electronic and print. It outlines how the Khilafah supervises and supports a vibrant media that plays its full role in exposing the colonialist plans, accounting the rulers and globally promoting the noble Deen of Islam.
The present age has been called the ‘Information Age.’ Both electronic and print media, state and private media, not only have a major role in shaping the opinions of the general public, but also provide the people the previous information upon which they establish opinions. At the same time, there are certain matters where private media itself relies on the state, such as guidelines on security matters and exposing the plans of the colonialists. The state must assist the media and indeed the Khilafah state will vigorously support the media in playing its part in helping to look after the affairs of its citizens and propagating the call of Islam to the rest of humankind. Information is of the important matters for the Call to Islam and the State. Thus, it is directly connected with the Khaleefah as an independent institution, the same as any one of the other Khilafah state’s institutions, such as the judiciary or the Council of the Ummah.
Thus media houses in Khilafah whether state or private will be seen in the eyes of the citizens of the state as a trustworthy source of information and the people of the world will recognize them as a global voice of truth.
