On 19 February 2019, Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Imran Khan, issued a carefully worded, pre-recorded video message, amidst rising tensions between India and Pakistan, in the wake of the 14 February Pulwama attack, in which a single, brave, young man of Occupied Kashmir dispatched forty Indian occupying troops to Hell. It was this daring attack that flagrantly exposed the fragility of the Indian occupation over a poorly armed but highly motivated civilian population. Moreover, this brave attack was just the latest act of defiance against Indian terrorism by the youth of Occupied Kashmir, since the martyrdom of the blessed youthful commander, Burhan Wani, in July 2016; this is an act of defiance by the Kashmiri youth who still bury their dead in the flag of Pakistan and defiantly raise the cry “Kashmir will be Pakistan” (“Kashmir baneyga Pakistan”). Yet instead of taking the initiative when the Indian army was knocked off its feet, Imran gave a defensive and apologetic speech, carefully steadying Modi as Indian elections draw near. Instead of condemning India’s seven decades of terrorism, Imran denounced the legitimate armed resistance, by declaring that “we want terrorism in the region to end.” Instead of openly announcing the active arming of the Muslims of Occupied Kashmir, Imran condemned them to nominal independence on the doorstep of a terrorist state through normalization talks, by declaring “this issue will only be resolved by talks.” And instead of readying the Pakistan Army for full support of the long suffering Muslims in Kashmir, Imran Khan walked the treacherous path of the US agents before him, adopting restraint before ever increasing Indian regional belligerency.
O Lions of Pakistan Army! The Pulwama attack was no less than a rallying war cry from the defiant youth of Occupied Kashmir to you for their liberation. You are the lions who have been restrained, so that you do not confront the cowards of the jungle. You have been restrained, when each strike of your limbs will make clear the strength of the Muslim Ummah over all the other nations of the world. Like Musharraf, Zardari and Nawaz before him, Imran has crossed a red line, so do not let him advance a single step further. Enough of spineless rulers that carefully toy with the sentiments of the Muslims to cunningly advance the ambitions of their enemies. Uproot the treacherous and grant your Nussrah for the immediate re-establishment the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood, so that you are unleashed to liberate the Muslims Lands, earning the Duaa of the believers and the good pleasure of Allah (swt). Allah (swt) said, يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ قَاتِلُواْ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَكُم مِّنَ الْكُفَّارِ وَلِيَجِدُواْ فِيكُمْ غِلْظَةً وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ مَعَ الْمُتَّقِينَ “O you who believe! Fight the Unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.” [Surah at-Tawbah 9: 123]
