Pakistan’s Political and Military Leadership Exploits Floods to Further the US Agenda of Trade Normalization with India

Entire crops of grains, fruits and vegetables have been lost due to the devastating floods in Pakistan, causing dramatic rises in food prices. Of course, it is the duty of the government to scrutinize the supply and demand of essential food supplies, importing them, if required, to keep prices stable. However, Pakistan’s political and military leaderships decided to advance the American plan in the region. It exploited the human tragedy, by announcing that they are now considering trade with India.

Are the food needs of Pakistan only to be met by India? Can food not be imported from Iran, Afghanistan, Central Asia and other Muslim countries? What is the compulsion that India is always the first option when it comes to Pakistan’s needs? It is India that forcibly annexed Occupied Kashmir on August 5, 2019, punishing the Muslims there as well as those within India. Above all else, prominent members of India’s ruling party are continuously insulting our Prophet Muhammad (saw). So are we now to bow before the Hindu State, for onions and tomatoes?

If the Khilafah was established today, with the Muslim World, from Indonesia to Morocco, unified under one state and one Khaleefah, we would immediately have huge resources to cope with any natural disaster. Thus, there is no need to seek assistance from the kuffar, whether India, America, Europe or the United Nations. The Khilafah rapidly compensates for losses in any one region, through the resources of its other regions. When there was a famine in Madinah, the second Khaleefah Rashid, Umar al-Farooq (ra), arranged food caravans from Egypt, under Amr bin Al-Aas (ra), rapidly ending the crisis.

O Muslims of Pakistan! A leadership under any man-made system, including Democracy, can never take care of your Deen and the needs guaranteed by it. Such a leadership will always protect the interests of the colonial powers. In the current flood situation, it is clear that when the rulers have to fight America’s war or implement the orders of the FATF and IMF, they do not claim that there are not enough resources. Instead, the entire state machinery is set in motion immediately. However, when our people are afflicted by floods and food shortages, they have a long list of excuses.

The current flood and food crisis underlines the pressing need for the immediate re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood. It is indeed the Khilafah that will mobilize within minutes of its establishment, mobilizing the entire state machinery to lead, direct and assist the legions of sincere volunteers, already working on the ground, to ensure relief for the people rapidly.

O Sincere Muslims in the Armed Forces of Pakistan! You have the greatest ability to immediately end the suffering of our people. Thus, you have the greatest accountability before Allah (swt) on the Day of Judgment. Grant Nussrah now to Hizb ut Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood. It alone will grant huge and timely relief to our suffering people, whilst closing the doors to our enemies, firmly in their faces. Allah (swt) said:

[وَإِنِ اسْتَنْصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ النَّصْرُ]

“If they ask you for help in Deen, you must come to their aid.” [Surah Al-Anfal 8:72].
