Following Ben Ali’s repressive policies in pursuing politicians from the Dawah carriers to Islam, and in the style of “thugs” and gangs, the security services kidnapped on Sunday morning, 03/11/2019, Salim Semida, a member of Hizb ut Tahrir, following the distribution of Tahrir Newspaper in the car market in Mourouj, Tunis.
What is it that bothered the authorities in Tunisia about the Tahrir Newspaper, which is distributed “legally” and weekly?! Is it the article written by Salim Semida in which he exposed the French Ambassador Olivier Poivre’s disdain for the Tunisian people who rejected his presence? Or are the articles that reveal the commitment of the future governments to the itinerary drawn by Britain to the current government? Or perhaps the articles that reveal the falsehood of the political milieu and its lie and betrayals before the colonizer who mortgaged the country and the people?!!
This arrest was not the first, and we are aware that it will not be the last. Tunisian authority has often trampled its laws and honor by arresting and prosecuting Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir for calling for the establishment of a state like the one established by the Prophet ﷺ, and the liberation of the country from the colonizer.
To those who call themselves rulers and they are not rulers!
Who is more worthy to be pursued and repelled? Would it not have been better for you and your security services to expel the French ambassador, who has trampled on all diplomatic norms, and despised you and all officials and began to tour and roam freely without any restraint or accountability, violating the sovereignty of the country? Have your security’s eyes been blind of the ambassador of the colonist Britain, who left no part in the country, but she probed into it and behaved as a ruler, but rather she orders and you obey her orders? Haven’t you seen the ambassador of the criminal America, the murderer of children and the elderly roaming across the country, buying consciences and intervene even in the affairs of municipalities?!
To the Security Services,
Where is your honor? Where is your chivalry? This country is being violated by its enemies as you look and do not speak, who is more worthy to be arrested? Is it the one working to liberate the country from foreign influence and its local tools, or the semi-rulers and policy professionals who have sold their religion and abandoned their country to the colonial Kafir in exchange for the crooked chairs? Can Salim Semida and his brothers defending their country, religion and Ummah be chained, and the agents and enemies stay safe and secure?! Who is more worthy of security and support? Is there not among you a right-minded man?!
To our People in Tunisia, to the Honorable Muslims:
This arrest confirms that the sovereign decision of the country is kidnapped for the benefit of Western powers, and that uprooting colonialism is a life and Shari’ necessity. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ calls you to support His religion, for in Islam alone is your honor: وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَلَكِنَّ الْمُنَافِقِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ “And to Allah belongs [all] honor, and to His Messenger, and to the believers, but the hypocrites do not know” [Al-Munafiqun: 7]
Allah Almighty says: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُحَادُّونَ الله وَرَسُولَهُ أُولَئِكَ فِي الْأَذَلِّينَ * كَتَبَ الله لَأَغْلِبَنَّ أَنَا وَرُسُلِي إِنَّ الله قَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ “Those who oppose Allah and His Messenger, they will be among the lowest (most humiliated). Allah has decreed: “Verily! It is I and My Messengers who shall be the victorious.” Verily, Allah is All-Powerful, All-Mighty” [Al-Mujadalah: 20-21].
