Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan harshly condemns the bomb blast in Quetta and the subsequent killing of more than 89 people, with hundreds injured and gross losses of property. A Muslim can never do such a cowardly and inhuman act, for any Muslim who believes in the Book of Allah, The Quran, also believes firmly His سبحانه وتعالى saying:
وَمَن يَقْتُلْ مُؤْمِناً مُّتَعَمِّداً فَجَزَآؤُهُ جَهَنَّمُ خَالِداً فِيهَا وَغَضِبَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَلَعَنَهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُ عَذَاباً عَظِيماً
“And whosoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the Wrath and the Curse of Allah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him.”
For centuries Muslims belonging to different schools of thought have been living peacefully under the Islamic rule. Thirteen hundred years of Muslims’ history show us that a Shafai Muslim had never killed his Hanafi Muslim brother or a Hanafi had ever killed his Jafferi Muslim brother, just because of juristic differences of opinions. This current strife is the creation of the Western colonialist nations, who invaded and occupied Muslims lands and sowed the seed of hatred on the basis of nationalism, racism and sectarianism. Islam severely condemns nationalism, racism and sectarianism and declares all human beings as the siblings of Adam and the Muslims as a single Ummah.
