In a week where the new President of the United States, Donald Trump, re-affirmed his commitment to the Western crusade against Islam and Muslims, Pakistan’s rulers continued their relentless, vicious assaults against the advocates of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood. As he emerged from jail having secured bail, Kamran Sheikh, a respected 39-year-old lecturer and father of three children, was forcibly seized by government agents as he joined his awaiting family in a car. This assault is just one of several human rights abuses perpetrated against the intelligent, diligent and gentle Kamran Sheikh. Previously, on 9 February 2016, Kamran was abducted by government covert agencies for months, enduring severe torture over this prolonged period, including severe beating and starvation. Then, even after being handed over to the judiciary for trail and successfully securing bail, Kamran was re-arrested again. And now that he successfully secured bail a second time, he has been seized again as he stepped out of jail. All this oppression is in addition to the abduction of Naveed Butt, the official spokesman of Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Pakistan, since 11 May 2012, as well as the torturing and confining to prison of dozens of the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, since it was banned in the era of the criminal Musharraf, upon the orders of Washington.
Any fair observer cannot but frown upon such criminal acts perpetrated against a Muslim, or any other human-being, for they are devoid of any noble morals which are supposed to be embodied within a man charged to establish security, a cherished goal for humankind. Such tyranny is also devoid of the high values nurtured by Islam in the hearts of Muslims. The regime has reached the stage in its brutality that it has stripped itself of even human values that respect the dignity of a man in his capacity as a human being, let alone the high Islamic values that establish great respect for the dignity of the Believer in Allah سبحانه وتعالى. And what a sorry state has the regime fallen to, when it has trampled over any regard for the sincere guardians of the Deen of Allah سبحانه وتعالى, the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, who strive for the revival of the great Ummah of Islam so as to rescue the entire humanity, including the American nation, from the deep oppression and arrogant greed of capitalism, to the light of the justice of Islam. It is painful for the sensing and feeling, possessed of sight and insight, that the draconian policy of this regime and its masters in Washington, the policy of oppression and persecution of the sincere of this Ummah, is only in place to prevent the impending arrival of the light of Islam and justice for all mankind, including the Muslims.
Surely, the fallen regime has confirmed that there is no law in Pakistan but the law of the US State Department, for it is the colonialists that demand the forceful suppression of Islam, within a state which was established in the name of Islam. Surely, the regime has confirmed that it wants to revive the long dead spirit of the cruel British Raj occupation which used the judiciary and police to forcefully suppress the Muslims, whose only desire was for Islam to be supreme in these pure lands. And surely, in its lust to please its masters in Washington, the regime has lost itself by failing to heed the severe warning of Allah سبحانه وتعالى against those who torture the sincere Muslims for their commitment to Islam, in His Saying,
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ فَتَنُوا الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَتُوبُوا فَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ جَهَنَّمَ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ الْحَرِيقِ
“Indeed, those who have tortured the believing men and believing women and then have not repented will have the punishment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the Burning Fire.”
(Surah Al-Buruj 85:10)
Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Pakistan assures the regime and its masters in Washington, that the tyranny against the Hizb will not slow down its march or yield before their oppression. The Trump administration and its door-men in the Muslim World must not estimate the sincere and committed Muslims, as they estimate themselves, for the believers fear only Allah سبحانه وتعالى, know that they are on the side of Truth and will sacrifice all that He سبحانه وتعالى has bestowed upon them. Allah is the Al-Qawii Al-Aziz, He is the Best Disposer of Affairs and their Support.
Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,
الَّذِينَ قَالَ لَهُمْ النَّاسُ إِنَّ النَّاسَ قَدْ جَمَعُوا لَكُمْ فَاخْشَوْهُمْ فَزَادَهُمْ إِيمَانًا وَقَالُوا حَسْبُنَا اللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيلُ
“Those unto whom the people said: “Verily, the people have gathered against you (a great army), therefore fear them.” But it (only) increased them in Faith and they said: “Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us and He is the Best Disposer of affairs.”
(Surah Al-i-Imran: 173)
