With his popularity obviously flagging, Imran Khan made a pathetic attempt to play upon Islamic sentiments of the masses, by proclaiming on 9 April 2019 that, “When leaders in Israel and India show a moral bankruptcy in their readiness to annex occupied West Bank and IoK [Indian occupied Kashmir] in defiance of international law, United Nations Security Council resolutions, and their own Constitution for votes, don’t their people feel a sense of outrage and wonder how far they [the leaders] will go simply to win an election?” Such statements only expose their authors in an era in which the Ummah has awoken to her cause. The “moral bankruptcy” of the Jewish entity and the Hindu State only exists because of the inaction and gross neglect of the current rulers. Rhetoric is no compensation for the absence of the mobilization of the armed forces of Muslims, which are more than willing and able to liberate Occupied Kashmir and Masjid al-Aqsa. Constant mentioning of International Law and the United Nations reflects greater danger as it is referring the affairs of the Ummah to the very colonialists that created problems for her.
O Muslims of Pakistan and their Armed Forces in Particular! The current rulers are not from us and we are not from them, so let us not belittle ourselves by pinning our hopes on them. Their concerns are not our concerns and their aspirations are far from ours, despite their pretense. Their proposed solutions are the very cause of the problems by which we are afflicted. It is time to break away from these rulers and move to the actual substantial remedy for our situation. Islam forbade the referral of our affairs to the dominance of the kuffar, through institutions such as the UN and the International Law that it holds sacred. Allah (swt) said, وَلَن يَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ سَبِيلًا “And Allah (swt) does not permit the believers to grant the kuffar an authority over them.” [Surah an-Nisa’a 4:141]. Any calls to refer our affairs to the kuffar must be met with our contempt and condemnation. Islam has demanded that Muslims restore their shield, the Khilafah, which will rule by Islam and mobilize millions of Ummah’s troops for liberation of Muslim lands from brutal occupations of the Jewish entity and the Hindu State. RasulAllah ﷺ said, «إِنَّمَا الْإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ» “Indeed, the Imam (Khaleefah) is a shield, from behind whom you fight and by whom you are protected.” (Muslim).
O Muslims! The Khilafah is our shield, so let us work to re-establish it and earn the pleasure of Allah (swt) by correcting the wrongs that have afflicted us for so long.
