Last night after midnight, on 6/5/2017, the regime security apparatus in Jordan arrested a member of Hizb ut Tahrir, Assem O’qlah al-Maghayreh, following a large security force stormed his house in a way that showed apparent lack of chivalry and decency. A cheap barbarism, the like of which was abstained to be committed by the hardcore disbelievers and the symbols of Jahiliyah, such as Abu Jahl who refused to break into the house of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, for fear that the Arabs would say that he had terrified the daughters of Muhammad.
The security forces stormed the house of Engineer Assem Magayreh, threw a smoke bomb inside his house, while himself, his wife and his children were sleeping, without regard or respect for the sanctity of the house or the presence of children. Shortly before this, this brutal security force, had stormed the house of the pharmacist Ramzi Suleiman, but Allah (swt) protected him and they did not find him. They verbally assaulted and threatened to arrest the wife of Brother Ramzi, and arrested her brother Ahmed Surur Bani Odeh until her husband surrenders himself to the security services.
وَمَا نَقَمُوا مِنْهُمْ إِلَّا أَن يُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَمِيدِ
“And they resented them not except because they believed in Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy”
We, in Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah of Jordan, regarding this terrorism, criminality and hatred practiced by the Jordanian regime and its security forces against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir and their families, affirm to the Islamic nation in general and to the people of Jordan in particular that this terrorism and criminality will not deter Hizb ut Tahrir and its Shabab from continuing to carry the Dawah and the work to resume the Islamic way of life in the lives of Muslims in the Khilafah(Caliphate) state on method of the Prophethood.
This terrorism and this crime will not deter the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir from moving forward, with the highest degree of political struggle, in exposing the conspiracy of this regime with the forces of disbelief and colonialism on the people of Jordan. The party and its Shabab will not stop for a moment, because of this terror and intimidation, to reveal the work of this regime and its procedures of linking Jordan with the Jewish entity and enabling it to manage the capabilities of the country and to control the destiny of its people, nor will it stop, because of this crime and terrorism, to reveal the role of the regime in fostering corruption and protecting the corrupt. For Hizb ut Tahrir is a firmly established political party, deeply rooted in this country and elsewhere in the Muslim countries, rather in the countries of the whole world. It is not stopped by terrorism, intimidation or detention here or there.
The regime in Jordan, through its repressive security forces, had arrested of the sons of Muslims, terrorized of the safe women and children and endangered their lives by incursions and arrests, and tortured of detainees in prisons and deprived them of their most basic human rights. These actions of the regime require from the Muslims in Jordan a serious and honest stand, with themselves, and before that with Allah Almighty and His Messenger ﷺ, to stop the seduction of the regime, and its injustice and persistence to deny people their legitimate rights,
«وَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَتَأْمُرُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَلَتَنْهَوُنَّ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ أَوْ لَيُوشِكَنَّ اللَّهُ أَنْ يَبْعَثَ عَلَيْكُمْ عِقَابًا مِنْهُ ثُمَّ تَدْعُونَهُ فَلاَ يُسْتَجَابُ لَكُمْ».
“By Whom in Whose hand is my soul, you shall enjoin Ma’ruf and you shall forbid Munkar, or Allah may send His punishment upon you, then you will supplicate to Him and He will not answer your prayers.”
