No PM, Only the Khilafah Can Bring Revolution

The Dawn reported on 30 July, “Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said on Tuesday that only democracy could bring revolution in Pakistan.” However, like Dictatorship, Democracy can never bring revolution because it ensures that all the laws that are made by man, neglecting the commands of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. The current system is fundamentally a continuation of the British Raj occupation that abolished Islamic rule in the Indian Subcontinent. Even though Muslims shed their pure blood to establish Pakistan in the name of Islam, it was the British Parliament that created Pakistan’s initial legislation under its Indian Independence Act of 1947. Pakistan’s first constitution in 1956 and every subsequent constitution, including the present 1973 constitution, has been framed around this man-made law. So, until today, Pakistan is exploited by foreign powers and their local agents because they manipulate laws according to their. This occurs whether a democrat and his assemblies or a dictator and his cronies sit on top of this system.

Pakistan will never witness revolution, even in another seven decades, as long as the current system remains. The obstacle to change is man- made law, whether implemented by democracy or dictatorship. Fundamentally, the current system denies Allah سبحانه وتعالى being the sole Sovereign over humankind, ordering and forbidding them according to all that He سبحانه وتعالى revealed. Instead, man-made law gives human-beings the choice to obey Allah سبحانه وتعالى or disobey Him, even though Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed,

وما كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلاَ مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْرًا أَنْ يَكُونَ لَهُمْ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ وَمَنْ يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلاَلاً مُبِينًا

“It is not befitting for a believing man or woman to have any choice in a matter, when it has been decided upon by Allah and His Messenger.”

(Al-Ahzab 33:36)

Article 245 Is Being Used to Protect American Raj

The ruling and opposition are in a struggle over the issue of deploying the armed forces in Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad. The opposition is accusing the ruling party using force to prevent announced protests against the government on August 14. The government through its interior minister saying that the deployment is to prevent retaliation against the North Waziristan tribal operations. Both premises for deployment show that the armed forces has been made internally focused, rather than dealing with external enemies who are causing the internal instability. So, either our armed forces are being used to prevent the accounting of the American stooges in power or it is being used to protect the American forces in Afghanistan from tribal attacks. However, the constitutional article invoked actually prioritizes the external focus of the armed forces. Article 245 of the current 1973 Constitution states that, “The Armed Forces shall, under the directions of the Federal Government, defend Pakistan against external aggression or threat of war, and, subject to law, act in aid of civil power when called upon to do so.” It is the external contact with traitors in our military and political leadership has meant the exploitation of Pakistan at the hands of America, which has led to growing protest against the government. It is also the external aggression by American intelligence and private military that has plunged the country into insecurity through bombings and assassinations.

Only the Khilafah will give the armed forces the correct focus. As Hizb ut Tahrir has adopted in its Introduction to the Constitution, in Article 189, “States with whom we do not have treaties, and the actual imperialist states, such as Britain, America and France, and those states that have designs on the State, such as Russia, are legally considered to be belligerent states. All precautions must be taken towards them and it would be wrong to establish diplomatic relations with them.” And in the same Article’s Clause 4 it has stated, “States that are actually belligerent states, such as Israel for example, a state of war must be taken as the basis for all dealings with them. They must be dealt with as if a real war existed between us – irrespective of whether an armistice exists between us or not – and all their subjects are prevented from entering the State.”

Abolish Democracy to End Political Corruption

Federal Minister for Finance, Senator Ishaq Dar, on 31 July said that talks will be held with Swiss authorities in August to bring back US $200 billion to Pakistan from banks in Switzerland, allegedly ill gotten gains from political corruption.

Patting itself on its back again the Raheel-Nawaz regime has failed to address the cause of corruption itself, Democracy. Wherever democracy exists, corruption by a small elite will always occur, exploiting the country’s resources at the expense of the people. As US Democrat Robert C Byrd lamented of his democratic country as “an administration of the wealthy, by the wealthy, for the wealthy.” The concentration of wealth in the hands of a small elite is legalized through man made legislation under democracy. The elite usurps from society sources of huge revenue, specifically, the predominately state properties and public properties, such as large scale arms manufacture, banking and energy industry. In India, democracy has been uninterrupted for nearly seven decades, with the result of an extremely wealthy political elite with masses that are driven to suicide because of poverty, to the order of hundreds of thousands. Democracy is the reason why Pakistan is a wealthy country, with poor people but immensely rich rulers and politicians. A survey carried out by Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development and Transparency (PILDAT), that was subsequently covered in many newspapers, exposed how the average total wealth of Members of Pakistan’s National Assembly’s had tripled in only six years,

In the Khilafah, not only do the Shariah rules prevent usurping of the Ummah’s wealth, the Khilafah will estimate the personal wealth of the Walis when they enter ruling and will take back any wealth they acquire during ruling when their rule ends. Only then will we be rid of worthless opportunists who seek the rule for personal benefit. RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

«سَيَأْتِي عَلَى النَّاسِ سَنَوَاتٌ خَدَّاعَات، يُصَدَّقُ فِيهَا الْكَاذِب، وَيُكَذَّبُ فِيهَا الصَّادِقُ، وَيُؤْتَمَنُ فِيهَا الْخَائِنُ، وَيُخَوَّنُ فِيهَا الأَمِينُ، وَيَنْطِقُ فِيهَا الرُّوَيْبِضَةُ»، قِيلَ: وَمَا الرُّوَيْبِضَةُ؟ قَال: «الرَّجُلُ التَّافِهُ يتكلم فِي أَمْرِ الْعَامَّةِ»

“People will face years misleading and cheating where the liar will be taken as truthful and truthful will be taken as liar; betrayer and treasonable person will be trusted and the trustworthy will be betrayed and the Ruwaibidha will speak, (the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was asked who the Ruwaibidha are, He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: The worthless and virtueless who will take charge of peoples’ affairs.” (Narrated by Hakim)

Only the Return of Khilafah Will Liberate Pakistan from the Choke Hold of Alliance with America

In a joint statement issued after the 1 August meeting of Indian PM Modi with US Secretary of State, John Kerry, India and the US urged Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks to justice. In the same statement, Washington assured New Delhi that “the United States looks forward to a reformed UN Security Council that includes India as a permanent member”.

This is the reality of the so-called strategic alliance of Pakistan and the US. Pakistan is bled dry, whilst its enemies are hoisted over its head. So Pakistan has bled billions of dollars, tens of thousands of civilians and thousands of its armed forces and security personnel for the sake of America’s crusade. Whilst India is rewarded by America for Pakistan’s efforts with promises of a permanent position in the Security Council of the United Nations, an organization that is the anvil upon which the Ummah is smashed, oppressed, divided and weakened.

This dire situation can only be reversed when the Ummah establishes the Khilafah in a strong country or group of countries, as the base for the unification of the entire Muslim World as one powerful state. Only then will the Ummah be free of alliances with hostile nations that are strangulating her huge potential. And such measures from the Kuffar against the Ummah is only strengthening her attachment to the Khilafah and hastening her to her goal. Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,

وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَى هُوَ قُلْ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونَ قَرِيبًا

“And they say, “When is that?” Say, Perhaps it will be soon.”

(Al-Isra: 51)

Are the Muslim Armed Forces only For Defending Thrones of Western Agents?

The Raheel-Nawaz regime has strongly denied reports that Pakistan has sent troops to defend the throne of the Western stooge, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. Director General (DG) of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa, said “No Pakistani troops are being sent or being deployed in a section of the media.” Such reports have been circulating ever since the Kingdom “gifted” $1.5 billion dollars without any clear stated cause for such sudden generosity.

As usual Raheel-Nawaz regime is evading the real issue, which is what should the role of the armed forces be towards the tyrant regimes that currently plague the Muslim World. This question demands an urgent answer at a time that the entire Ummah is demanding an Islamic revolution, implementation of Shariah and the restoration of the Khilafah. The thrones of the tyrants are shaking, whether that of Sisi in Egypt, Bashar in Syria, Abdullah in Saudi or the Raheel-Nawaz regime in Pakistan. These thieves are huddling together to prevent the return of Islam for it will sweep away the class of rulers who have for decades looted and plundered the Ummah’s resources, as a wage for loyal service to the West. And what keeps them in their thrones is purely the support of the armed forces through traitors in the military leadership.

Indeed, the role of the armed forces in Islam is to provide Nussrah for the return of the Khilafah. This is what Islam has stipulated clearly from the example of the beloved RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم. RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم stripped the kufr rule of its physical support from those who had the material power to secure its survival. He صلى الله عليه وسلم personally met the men of war, fire and steel, and demanded from them the Nussrah for the Deen. He صلى الله عليه وسلم traveled near and far, in hardship and in ease, to secure the Nussrah for Islam as a state. He صلى الله عليه وسلم sought the strong, discerning material capability in detail, asking «وهل عند قومك منعة؟» “Do your people have strength?” and rejecting those too weak to secure Islam from its enemies. Thus he met many tribes including, Banu Kalb, Banu Hanifah, Banu Amr bin Sa’asah, Banu Kinda and Banu Shaiban. He صلى الله عليه وسلم persisted in this methodology patiently until Allah granted success in the matter of Nussrah, with the Ansar (ra), a small but sincere and brave group from within the men of war. And so Nussrah for Islam as a rule was secured by the methodology of the Prophethood, transforming the torn and divided Yathrib into a powerful beacon for Islam, Madinah Al-Manawwarah.
