Tanzania Police Force 100 Year’s Anniversary Nothing To Be Proud Off

The Tanzania Police Force has announced 100 years jubilee anniversary since its inception.

This long interval since its inception is not a thing to be proud of because of the poor record of this institution, especially in recent years.

In spite of Police claims that its task is to safeguard and protect people lives, wealth and dignity in reality this is an empty slogan far from the fact. It has victimized many in general while Muslim community is the largest victims.

We witness incessant day to day sufferings such as a wave of abductions, killings, tortures of Muslims preachers and activists, ordinary civilians, politicians, public figures, businessmen, journalists etc.

There is also a wave of disappearance of hundreds kidnapped in Kibiti and Mkuranga Districts in Coastal Regions with their whereabouts so far remaining unknown. Not to mention finding of dead bodies on shores of Ruvu River and Indian Ocean and existence of torture dungeons under Police Terrorist Unit torturing of Muslims suspected of terrorism and other detainees, where its outcry have been voiced several times.

All these vividly demonstrates not only lapse and failure of security apparatus especial Police Force to safeguard and protect people lives, wealth and dignity, but is a great deal of arrogance for the institution that exists by taxpayers’ money.

(وَاسْتَكْبَرَ هُوَ وَجُنُودُهُ فِي الأَرْضِ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ وَظَنُّوا أَنَّهُمْ إِلَيْنَا لاَ يُرْجَعُونَ)

“And he (Pharaoh) was arrogant, he and his soldiers, in the land, without right, and they thought that they would not be returned to Us”.

(وَأَتْبَعْنَاهُمْ فِي هَذِهِ الدُّنْيَا لَعْنَةً وَيَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ هُمْ مِنَ الْمَقْبُوحِينَ)

“And We caused to overtake them in this world a curse, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be of the despised.”

Police force and other state apparatus such the military and intelligence agencies globally under in secular capitalist system operating by racisms, brutality, cruelty, violence and inhuman manner without concerns even to their own ethics that claim to uphold, because they work for manmade system with no spiritual value.

The only thing to overcome pains and stop arrogance of state apparatus including Police forces, the world need to eliminate capitalist ideology by replacing it with just and comprehensive ideology of Islam under its Khilafah State (Caliphate).
