Lahore Bomb Blast- Close US Embassy and Bases
On 13th February 2017, an alleged suicide blast took place at Lahore’s Mall Road in which at least 16 people were killed, and more than 75 were injured. Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan condemns this brutal and horrific attack and prays for the salvation of the dead souls and patience for their relatives.
Since Pakistan’s rulers declared alliance with the US in its so-called “War on Terror,” bomb blasts resulting in the killing of innocents has become a routine matter all over Pakistan. Pakistan’s rulers, agents to Washington, have always exploited these tragic incidents to claim that this US war is “our war.” However, they never took steps to eradicate the real root cause of these tragedies, which is the US presence in Pakistan and in this region. After the arrest of Raymond Davis, it was proven that official and unofficial US intelligence networks recruit criminal elements to perpetrate such blasts. However, the political and military leadership did not cut the head of the snake. Instead, they allowed the snake to make more dens and now the US has its second largest embassy in Islamabad, second only to the one in Baghdad, occupied Iraq. It has also been proved by recurring events, that whenever the US ordered the political and military leadership to “do more” for securing her interests, we always witness a tragedy of large scale which the rulers exploit to complete US objectives. Moreover, the political and military leadership has itself on more than one occasion confirmed that India uses Afghan soil to destabilize Pakistan and presents Kal Bhoshan Yadev case as an evidence. However, they never raise the fact that it is their ally, the United States, which has opened the doors of Afghanistan to India and its intelligence, RAW.
Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan makes it clear to the Muslims of Pakistan that until the root cause of destruction in the region, the US presence, is not eradicated we will continue to witness bomb blasts, with shadowy organizations that claim responsibility. Thus, the Muslims of Pakistan must raise “Close Embassy and bases, End US Raj” as their demand. The end of the American Raj in Pakistan will guarantee peace in Pakistan and this region. And such a bold endeavor will only be undertaken by the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood and not by the current US agents in the political and military leadership.
يٰأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ بِطَانَةً مِّنْ دُونِكُمْ لاَ يَأْلُونَكُمْ خَبَالاً وَدُّواْ مَا عَنِتُّمْ
“O you who believe! Take not as (your) Bitanah (friends) those outside your religion since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely.”
