Re: Reply to your Article: “Hizb ut Tahrir and the Al-Nahda Dam”
In reply to your article “Hizb ut Tahrir and the Al-Nahda Dam” in Al-Tayar Newspaper (Issue 2050) from the 5th of November 2017, we express the following:
First: We thank you for your interest in the booklet An-Nahdha (Grand Renaissance) Dam and the Threats of Water War; Negligence of the Rulers and the Duty of the Ummah, we also thank you for your praise of Hizb ut Tahrir in Wilayah Sudan’s step towards the interest for pivotal issues which you said were outside of politics, even though it is the core of political work.
Second: We consider ourselves a political party in principle, we emanate from the great Islamic ideology and we base all topics upon this foundation (Islamic Aqeedah) therefore the booklet was not a scientific research rather it is a political research which delves into the issues of our Ummah as a warning and reveal the conspiracies laid against it. We actually do not believe there is such a thing as neutrality.
Third: We did not suggest the plot, and when we mentioned the danger of the dam and that it is built to collapse, we relied on the expert’s comments that assures the above. The most dangerous thing in this issue is not publishing the expert’s recommendations (Tripartite Commission for the Evaluation of the Al-Nahda Dam), they only featured some remarks which we published in the booklet on the pages 38 and 39. With regards to the supporters of the building of the dam, they are part of the government both in Sudan and Egypt and these are like the Sultan’s workers – their words are worthless. If the dam is not a problem- then why experts, counsel and other?! And a last issue with regards to this matter, if there is not a view of a conspiracy theory rather what is happening to the Muslims, since the first Islamic State was established on the hands of the Prophet ﷺ and to the Day of Judgement, is a conspiracy from the enemies of Islam and the talk about a conspiracy theory is itself part of the conspiracy, therefore there is no conspiracy theory rather there is a real conspiracy.
Conclusion: We hope that you, honourable brother, will sit with us and discuss the issue on the basis of the Islamic Aqeedah as we are Muslims. What we have presented in our booklet about Al-Nahda Dam is mere broad lines that demonstrate the extent of the neglect carried out by the Sudanese and Egyptian government with regards to the Nile’s water and especially in the matter of the Al-Nahda Dam. Thank you very much.
