The Institution of the Presidency and their Intellectual Defeat When Facing Hizb ut Tahrir

On Tuesday, 30/8/2022, a delegation from the Central Communications Committee of Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Tunisia, headed by Ustadh Yassin Bin Yahia, including members Ustadh Al-Habib El Madini and Mohammad Ali Bin Salim, visited the Tunisian Institute for Strategic Studies, which is the official institute under the supervision of the Presidency of the Republic. This is to present copies of the book, Refutation of the Capitalist Western Thought as an Ideology, Civilization and Culture, recently published by Hizb ut Tahrir. However, despite repeated attempts and lengthy consultations carried out by the control office of this institution, their decision was not to receive those copies, neglecting the nature of the intellectual and research role of their institution that they claim, simply because they found themselves in front of a proposal that refutes the foundations of Western thought that they set themselves as its guardians in our country! While the management of this Tunisian Institute for Strategic Studies does not see any harm in cooperating with the Western colonial institutions that are erected in our land, such as the German Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS). It has even come to the point of being proud of succeeding in completing 20 sectoral strategic studies, with this foreign institution, during the year 2020 in relation to drawing a vision for Tunisia beyond Covid 19 on the horizon of the year 2025.

The Central Communications Committee of Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Tunisia has been distributing the above-mentioned book for some time to people of thought and opinion, university professors and masters of modernist thought who are smitten by Western civilization, led by members of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Islamic Civilization and honourary members of the House of Wisdom Foundation. By doing this, Hizb ut Tahrir challenges those who are enchanted by Western culture, headed by members of the House of Wisdom and the Tunisian Strategic Institute linked to the presidency, to debate with them intellectually to demonstrate the corruption of the capitalist ideology and the greatness of the ideology of Islam. This is so that they give up their intellectual and political dependence on the colonial kafir West and return to the arms of their Ummah and support the great ideology of Islam, to repay by this for their crime of spreading Western thought and the desperation in defending it.

Allah (swt) says:

[بلْ نَقْذِفُ بِالْحَقِّ عَلَى الْبَاطِلِ فَيَدْمَغُهُ فَإِذَا هُوَ زَاهِقٌ وَلَكُمُ الْوَيْلُ مِمَّا تَصِفُونَ]

“Rather, We dash the truth upon falsehood, and it destroys it, and thereupon it departs. And for you is destruction from that which you describe” [Al-Anbiya: 18].
