Mowlavi Mujib-ur-Rahman Ansari, the orator and preacher of Gazargah Masjid, was martyred in an explosion along with 17 people, while tens of others were wounded in Gazargah Masjid of Herat province. The Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir in Wilayah Afghanistan condemns this savage attack and terroristic act in the strongest possible terms, considering it against the humanity and teachings of Shariah. May Allah (swt) accept the martyrdom of the martyrs, grant immediate recovery to the wounded, and give patience and/or rewards to their relatives.
It is not the first time since we are witnessing the assassination of respected scholars, influential leaders, and elders of this Ummah, particularly over the past 20 years when Afghanistan was under occupation and invasion – as a series of targeted killings of scholars and influential leaders were in escalation. The invaders and their intelligence networks used to carry out mysterious killings in this land to isolate, defame, and assassinate those who were popular amongst the people and were seen as an obstacle against the plots and conspiracies of invaders – as the martyrdom of Mowlavi Ansari is the continuation of such intelligence acts.
The occupation truly failed in Afghanistan, but the invaders have not stayed calm. The enemies of Islam intend to carry out their unsparing attacks against the Islamic values, the current government, scholars, and influential leaders of this society by using different approaches to challenge and pressurize the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) on one hand, and to eliminate those who they see as an obstacle on their way on the other. So, the Islamic Emirate must realize that the Western colonization and their regional partners have many faces – they [the enemies] sometimes appear with hands full of financial aid as humanitarian organizations, civil activists, media while also facilitate protests, exert political pressures, and carry obscure intelligence activities and targeted killings.
We had already disclosed such plots of the enemy and alerted the leaders of the society of such acts several times; today, we reiterate once again the fact that the West always employs multidimensional and complicated politics in dealing with Muslims. They apparently speak of humanitarian aid and human rights, but in reality, they prevent the formation of a powerful and stable Islamic government in Afghanistan and the region. Therefore, we need to realize that only by close affiliation with the Ummah and full implementation of Islam, we can avoid internal seditions, annihilate foreign plots, punish the criminals and ensure that the wealth and life of the Muslims are protected. We should not take this for granted that only forming a strong Islamic identity and resuscitation of a stable society empowers us to stand against our foreign enemies as an iron stronghold to destroy their vicious plans and guile.
