Statement of Hizb ut Tahrir Indonesia on the verdict of the administrative court Jakarta

As reported, the Jakarta Administrative Court on May 7 has rejected all Hizb ut Tahrir / Indonesia (HTI) lawsuit against the government’s decision to revoke the status of Association’s of Legal Entity (BHP) of HTI made on July 19, 2017. In this regard, Hizb ut Tahrir / Indonesia states:

1- Rejecting the judge’s verdict of the Administrative Court because it means that it has ratified the tyranny made by the government. The decision to revoke the status of the BHP of HTI by the government is a tyranny because the decision to disband HTI is unclear and baseless. Every thing that the government says about the reasons behind the dissolution of HTI is an assumption that has never been objectively proven in the court. The government should stop this arbitrary act instead of legaizing it. Therefore, HTI is determined to make a judicial appeal to challenge the verdict.

2- The verdict of the judges of the State Administrative Court has clearly blamed the da’wah activities of HTI that disseminate the understanding of Sharia and the Khilafah. That is to say, blaming the obligations of Islam and the teachings of Islam is an act that should not be ignored.

3- HTI expresses its gratitude to the ulemas, ustadz and community leaders and Muslims in general who have directly or indirectly provided support to HTI during the trial process, especially to the witnesses and the expert witnesses who have been willing to give their testimony in court. Shukran jazakumullah khayran jaza (May Allah reward you with goodness).

4- Call for those who have participated in the acts of tyranny and support of this tyranny to immediately repent before the coming of the ‘ultimate court’ in the presence of Allah (swt) in the Hereafter.
