The War of Fitnah Can Only End by Unifying Pakistan and Afghanistan as One Khilafah State

Pakistan lost twenty-five troops in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Dera Ismail Khan, the military’s media affairs wing, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said on 12 December 2023. Tehreek-i-Jihad Pakistan (TJP), a new group affiliated with the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), claimed responsibility for the attack on the check post.

Pakistan has been witnessing an increase of attacks on the security forces in the provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) and Baluchistan. When Afghan Taliban took control of Kabul in August 2021, there was optimism that security issues inside Pakistan will be diminished significantly, if not completely eradicated. The Afghan Taliban tried to facilitate a dialogue between the state of Pakistan and Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which produced two ceasefire agreements between them. However, the ceasefire failed to last more than a few months.

This War of Fitnah between Muslims suits America. As a result of this, Pakistan remains busy in quelling militancy in its Western regions, along the Pak-Afghan border. Relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan remain tense, as Pakistan accuses Afghan Taliban of supporting TTP. This situation provides space for India to focus its attention on its disputed borders with China. All this helps the US policy of containing China. So, it is in US interest that this conflict inside Pakistan, and tensions with the Afghan Taliban, continue.

There is also a local reason which flames this War of Fitnah. These militant groups consider the state of Pakistan as an ally of US. Indeed, Pakistan’s leadership put every available resource at the disposal of the US, during its almost twenty years of so-called “war on terror.” Even after the withdrawal of US from Afghanistan, the state of Pakistan has not left slavery to the US. This reflects in its policy over Occupied Kashmir. The rulers of Pakistan have guaranteed the US and India, that even after the crossing of the last red line by India, which is the annexation of Occupied Kashmir, they will continue to restrain Pakistan’s armed forces.

The ruling establishment of Pakistan must be changed to end this War of Fitnah. It will only cause more harm to Pakistan. More military operations will not end this war in the tribal regions. The US realized that itself after long years of war. An Islamic leadership, ruling by Islam, alone can end the losses to both sides.

The Muslims of Pakistan and Afghanistan love Islam and hate the US. They want to live under a state which implements Islam in every field of life. They want to move across this region for business, education, health, and so on, without any restrictions. They are ready to be unified under the single state of Khilafah (Caliphate).

The Khilafah will sever all ties with the United States. It will establish the laws of Islam in every field of life. So, there will be no contradiction between the emotions and aspirations of the people, and the policies of the rulers. Only this will end the War of Fitnah which is weakening Muslims in front of their real enemies, the US, India and the Jewish entity. Allah (swt) said,

[وَاَطِيۡعُوا اللّٰهَ وَرَسُوۡلَهٗ وَلَا تَنَازَعُوۡا فَتَفۡشَلُوۡا وَتَذۡهَبَ رِيۡحُكُمۡ وَاصۡبِرُوۡا اِنَّ اللّٰهَ مَعَ الصّٰبِرِيۡنَ]

“Obey Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw). Do not quarrel with one another lest you lose resolve, whilst your power departs. Be steadfast. Surely Allah is with those who remain steadfast.” [TMQ Al-Anfal 8:46].

    Afghanistan and Pakistan should start working to unify based on Islam and the matters of Qatiyat, and stop any arguments on Zanniyat matters. This should be taken seriously without wasting any time. May Allah SWT grant them the maturity and understanding to do this right thing immediately, inshaAllah.
