On Sunday, 06 July 2014, police arrested two Shebaab of Hizb ut Tahrir from Mendibag area of Sylhet city in Bangladesh where they were distributing leaflets. The Sobhanighat police filed a case against Syed Tanvir Hasan, a former student of Shahjalal University of Science & Technology, and Sadikul Islam, an MBBS student of Sylhet MAG Osmani Medical College.
These arrests came in the wake of arrests and then sending seven Shebab from the Hizb to Jail [a1] a few weeks ago. These are just two more examples that show how the continuation of the Hasina regime in preventing the educated youth from joining this sincere call, even after enduring a lengthy repression. These sincere Shebab, who fill the prison cells of Bangladesh, are the youth upon whom aware nations invest for securing their future. By them realising the magnitude of responsibility on their shoulders and responding to Hizb ut Tahrir and its call to the Ummah for revival and the work to establish the Khilafah, these are surely the best of the nation. The Hasina regime has failed Bangladesh by throwing the best sons of this nation into prisons, at the behest of America and other imperialist enemies of Islam and the Muslims, but she and her treacherous entourage shall soon be thrown into the abyss, by the permission of Allah.
These recent arrests have proven that the Shebab of Hizb ut Tahrir paid no heed to the harassment and restraints taken by the Hasina regime, and that the call for re-establishment of the Khilafah continues to attract the aware and educated members from the sons of the Ummah. Standing with it and amongst it calling it to join them to work for the establishment of this great obligation (fardh). They are men of Haq (truth) fearless of anyone but Allah. They are men of audacity, valor and courage, standing steadfast in the face of the criminal brutal cowardly authority. These arrests only increase in them in faith, steadfastness, stepping forth to work to guide the Ummah correct its ideas and concepts for they are role models who come to flock to join their ranks in this blessed good dawah (call).
