Finally the curtain of the epic “Mother of Humanity” drama is coming down as Bangladesh Foreign Secretary Shahidul Haque said to the UN Security Council on Thursday (28/2/19) that Bangladesh would no longer be in a position to accommodate more Rohingyas from Myanmar (The Guardian, 1 Mar 2019). After using the Rohingya crisis as a timely stepping stone to reach the devious political goal of moving beyond her ‘Mother of Tyranny’ image, Sheikh Hasina has now decided to discard the ‘Rohingya cause’ like used clothes.
Our people are very well aware of the fact that Hasina has never had any iota of sincerity to aid those helpless Muslims from the very beginning; it was only for the love and empathy of the general people here that her government was compelled to accept the refugees. We recall how apathetically Hasina defended her government’s inhumane stance of not giving entry to the Rohingya asylum seekers in an interview with Al Jazeera in 2012: “Bangladesh is already an overpopulated country. We cannot bear this burden….they’re their (Myanmar) citizen, so it is up to them, how they will treat their citizens. I have no right to poke my nose in the internal affairs of any country” (bdnews24.com, 28 Jul 2012). She did not only stop there, but rather banned three international NGOs: Doctors without Border (MSF), Action Against Hunger (ACF) and Britain’s Muslim Aid to stop their humanitarian activities within the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar district, saying “their works are encouraging influx” (Al Jazeera, 2 Aug 2012)!!
Finally when the latest genocide started against the stateless Rohingya Muslims from 25th August 2017, Hasina again forced Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) to push the fleeing Rohingyas back to the sea. But she, being a cunning politician, observed the hatred of the mass people for her cruel decision, and suddenly paid a visit to the refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar to say she would open the border for them: ‘If we have the ability to feed the 160 million people of Bangladesh, we can also feed 700,000 Rohingya refugees’. As if, those Muslims, victims of the worst atrocities, have come to her for food! Very conveniently, she received her ‘Mother of Humanity’ award from her foreign masters although this “Mother” kept her Rohingya “Children” in unacceptable living conditions in haphazard and squalid makeshift camps! Now, when the usefulness of this self-staged melodrama is no longer needed for Hasina, she again went back to her genuine stance, that is, zero tolerance on sheltering the fleeing Rohingya Muslims.
O Muslims! Hizb ut Tahrir will never be tired of giving you reminder that the “only” solution to secure the honor of the Rohingya women and the lives of those stateless Muslim brothers and sisters lies in bringing back the true guardianship of the Khalifah (Caliph) – the shade of Allah on earth. The persecuted Ummah in Rakhine do not need a “Mother of Humanity” who plays depraved politics out of their humanitarian crisis; they do not want that “fake mother” who, instead of dispatching her powerful army to protect their lives and honor, sent her a women’s team in Myanmar to play soccer! Hence, instead of such mother, the helpless Rohingya Muslims need a bold leader like Khilafah Mu’tasim Billah who did not just stop at responding to the call of a Muslim woman oppressed by a Roman soldier, but conquered the largest Byzantine city (Amuriyya) in Asia minor by utterly defeating the barbarous Roman army to ensure the permanent security of the honor for all Muslim women in that land.
O Muslims! Now, we need that righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) more than ever which will not restrict its army within artificially imposed ‘nation-state’ created by the Western Imperialism. Only that army can destroy the transgressing and murderous Myanmar military whose very existence is a threat to humanity. And only that ruler, the Khalifah (Caliph) of the Islamic State, will be the leadership who can implement this through the Islamic foreign policy. So, we call upon you to stand for the real solution of this catastrophe on our beloved Ummah in Rakhine and work hand in hand with us to permanently remove the treacherous and tyrant Hasina by demanding to the sincere military officers that they transfer the authority (give nusrah) to Hizb ut Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate). It is narrated from Abu Hurayara (ra) that the Prophet ﷺ said:
«السُّلطانُ ظلُّ اللَّهِ في الأرضِ، يَأوي إليهِ الضَّعيفُ، وبهِ ينتصرُ المظلومُ ومَن أكرمَ سلطانَ اللَّهِ في الدُّنيا أكرمَهُ اللَّهُ يومَ القيامةِ»
‘The Sultan (khalifah) is Allah’s shade on Earth. The weak seek shelter in him and the oppressed are liberated by him. Whoever honors the Sultan of Allah in this world, Allah will honor him in the Hereafter…’ (Bukhari)
