Within hours of describing Mustafa Kemal as “one of the greatest statesman and visionary leaders of the 20th century,” Imran Khan simultaneously incited ridicule within those of Western liberal thinking and deepened disappointment within the Islam loving people. The Bajwa-Imran regime came to power by claiming loyalty to the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate), but has heaped praise on the traitor who conspired to abolish the Khilafah on 3 March 1924 CE, 28 Rajab 1342 AH. Moreover, Imran Khan is not the master of U-turns alone, it is the whole regime itself. It appears stuck between an Ummah which is staunchly anti-colonialist and pro-Islam and the openly colonialist Trump, who has unleashed ideological warfare on Islam as a way of life. The regime came to power by attacking the colonialist IMF, but has now unleashed huge inflation upon the people through fulfilling the destructive conditions of the IMF. The Bajwa-Imran regime came to power by attacking treacherous submission before the enemy India, but has opened the floodgates of concessions towards the flagrantly hostile Hindu State. The Bajwa-Imran regime came to power by attacking betrayal of the Muslims of Occupied Kashmir, but exercised “restraint” as Modi made 2018 the bloodiest year in Occupied Kashmir since 2009. The two-faced regime came to power attacking unfair deals with China, but then has fully committed to them, whilst expressing support for a regime that brutally oppresses the Uyghur Muslims. And the hypocrite regime came to power by attacking the hired guns for the US, but now acts as a hired facilitator to secure the US private military and military in Afghanistan through a deal.
O Muslims of Pakistan! RasulAllah ﷺ warned, «لَا يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ» “The believer is not stung from the same hole twice.” [Bukhari, Muslim] The pain of disappointment you are feeling now is because you have been stung from the same hole yet again. You have been stung because you put your faith in men who advocate ruling by other than all that Allah (swt) revealed, through the kufr Democracy. However, the reality is that the strong ruler is the one who obeys Allah (swt), working for the Afterlife, whilst the incapable one follows his desires. RasuAllah ﷺ said, «الْكَيِّسُ مَنْ دَانَ نَفْسَهُ وَعَمِلَ لِمَا بَعْدَ الْمَوْتِ، وَالْعَاجِزُ مَنْ أَتْبَعَ نَفْسَهُ هَوَاهَا وَتَمَنَّى عَلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ» “The wise one is he who disciplines himself and works for what is after death, and the weak (incapable) one is he who follows his desires and has vain hope upon Allah the Glorified.” [Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]. The strength and loyalty we need is that in Islam and obedience of Allah (swt), that of Omar al-Farooq (ra), and not that of Abu Jahal, in Kufr and disobedience. Let us learn from our repeated mistake and repent for it, knowing that repentance is not complete without the restoration of obedience and submission. Let us abandon Democracy and its advocates and work earnestly for the Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood with its advocates.
