US State Department revelations regarding the US presence in Pakistan demand the closure of the US embassy, consulates and intelligence bases and expulsion of all US diplomatic, intelligence, military and private military staff from our soil. In his “Cabinet Exit Memo” dated 5 January 2017, the outgoing US Secretary of State, John Kerry, revealed the existence of a “state-of-the-art tactical security operations center” on our soil, whereas others have been established only after invasion and occupation, such as in Afghanistan and Iraq! The memo also confirmed the existence of the Marine Security Guard (MSG) program which is a blank cheque for US troops to be stationed and deployed under the excuse of protecting the diplomatic missions. The US diplomatic missions include the new US embassy in our capital, which is a fortress in all but name, inaugurated on 31 July 2015 at a declared cost of $85 million, the largest US embassy in the world after the one in occupied Iraq. And we remind the Muslims of Pakistan that amidst reports of as many as forty-four FBI offices established within Pakistan, the then US Ambassador to Pakistan, Wendy Chamberlin, confirmed that the FBI has a permanent role in Pakistan when she declared “We’re going to have FBI guys there on a continual basis, not just coming in for two weeks and leaving, but stationed there.” (New York Times, 12 May 2002).
Such US fortresses and spy outposts are the backbone of the “terrorist network” that has destabilized Pakistan ever since Musharraf opened the doors to the Americans. This network provides the eyes, ears and hands for America to orchestrate the campaign of chaos on our soil which is a direct outcome of American foreign policy, specifically the policies of low intensity conflict and covert, “black” operations. It is such low intensity conflict which destroys internal stability, strains our capability, strangulates our potential and justifies repeated American interference to ask us to “do more.” And it is the covert operations, the “false flag” attacks, which are an American ploy, supervised by its embassies and intelligence all over the world from Latin America to South East Asia, to make sure that conflict consumes a country. Yet, Pakistan’s current rulers keep the doors wide open for the United States and ally with this terrorist state, extending excuse after excuse for their treachery, even though RasulAllah ﷺ warned, «مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ يَسْتَرْعِيهِ اللَّهُ رَعِيَّةً يَمُوتُ يَوْمَ يَمُوتُ وَهُوَ غَاشٌّ لِرَعِيَّتِهِ إِلَّا حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ» “There is no servant whom Allah gives charge over a people and he dies while he is cheating them (by neglecting their affairs), Allah will make Jannah unlawful for him.” [Muslim].
O Sincere Muslim Officers in Pakistan’s Armed Forces! It is your duty to make a clean break from the established path of Musharraf, Kayani and Raheel by eradicating the venomous US presence on our soil. No less will end the Fitna and chaos, ensuring that our armed forces and the sincere amongst the tribal fighters both turn their fire and steel against the American presence in the region, which is the source of the intricate planning, huge funding and sophisticated arms supply that has allowed the targeting of military and civilian targets for so long. As long as this American presence exists on our soil, we will never see an end to our destruction, even if we were to lose far more than we have already lost. Upon the return of our Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood, both our armed forces and tribal fighters will be mobilized without delay to eradicate America’s presence in the region in a way that will strike fear in their hearts, scare the Shaytaan out from their beings and smash their ambition against this Ummah to smithereens. And all this is possible within hours, if you were to grant Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir for the re-establishment of Islam as a state, constitution and authority, ushering in a new military command that fears no power but Allah سبحانه وتعالى.
