The adviser of President Beji Caid Essebsi, Saida Garrach, is not parted from claiming to advocate women and their issues, and she continues to lead the fierce media campaigns to promote the marriage of Muslim women to non-Muslims and pushes towards an illusionary equality in inheritance (contrary to the explicit Quran). Everyone has seen her audacity over the definite provisions of Islam, and her screams rose to a deafening extent as a pretext of defending women and their issues. However, her voice abated to a timidly whisper, and her cruelty turned into humbleness, rather humiliation, when Emirates Airline decided to prevent Tunisian women from travelling on their planes and left them at the worlds airports in a humiliating and lost manner. The advisor, Saida, was happy to explain, clarify, justify and call for “the need for deliberateness and good patience” citing information about security threats to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) conveyed to her by America’s Trump and establishing “self-restraint and not rushing to judge” the UAE and its company. Thus, the official advisor and the presidency’s spokesperson turned from being a champion of women’s issues to become a defendant of the decision of the rulers of the UAE, the servants of the English who insulted the women of Tunisia.
So, where are you, O advisor, from the advocacy of Tunisian women? Do not you care to keep women with their children abandoned in the world’s airports in a humiliating and dishonored manner? Where is your alleged desperate defense of women? Where is your obscene tongue? Or it does not speak, and it does not go loose and harmful except on the provisions of Islam or on those who call to abide by the provisions of Islam?
We, at the women’s section of Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Tunisia, declare that what Emirates Airline has done to our traveling sisters (i.e., banning them and treating them as forsaken suspects) is an insult and a mockery to the honors of Muslim women, and that the justification of Saida Garrach, the adviser of Beji Caid Essebsi, for this heinous act is a subservience to the officials of the United Arab Emirates, rather, it is an excuse that is uglier than the sin. Regarding this we say to our sisters:
– In this incident is a lesson and a sermon where you see and hear those who claim to advocate your rights with the Western concepts how they remained silent; rather, they justified the abuse and the insult on you before the world.
– The talk of women’s advocacy is all deception, for their goal is to take you as a means to pass the Western lifestyle with glamorous slogans whose falsehood has been revealed: their custom is to fight Islam and distort the provisions and delude you to think that they are “old, backward, provisions unsuitable for the age”. And their purpose is to make you an electoral reservoir to bring them to power to serve their Western masters.
– And once they achieve their goals, the issue of insulting women becomes insignificant, but must slowdown in response, especially if the aggressor is of the modernists or coups mercenaries or the people of affluence and petrodollar!!
We say to our sisters:
Islam, the Deen revealed by Allah Almighty to organize people’s lives, is the only one among the ideologies and religions which made women an honor that should be protected (not to be insulted). And when Islam was applied, the Caliph Al-Mu’tasim Billah stripped an army for a woman who was humiliated in the land of Rome. Women today will not find their dignity and honor except in Islam which makes the Muslim woman dignified and honored; a mother and head of the household looking after its affairs and a political leader who rejects equality with pseudo-men and semi-women who see only perpetuation of the subordination and humiliation of the country and the Ummah and adopted politics as a profession for living and not for caring for the affairs of the people as imposed by Islam.
We call upon you to reject all the false claims alleging women’s advocacy, and to adhere to the great Islam which Allah has revealed to the worlds and to work with us until Islam returns to governance so justice prevails and human beings are dignified and not disgraced.
