Yemen faces the world’s worst famine in 100 years as it is under attack by the World’s Worst Rulers in the Absence of the Khilafah

On the 15th of October 2018 the BBC reported that Yemen in facing the worst famine the world has ever known in 100 years. As many as 13 million civilians are at risk of dying from the lack of food in the war-torn country in the next three months. In an interview with Lisa Grande, the UN’s Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, she is quoted as saying “I think many of us felt as we went into the 21st century that is was unthinkable that we could see a famine like saw in Ethiopia, that we saw in Bengal, that we saw in parts of the Soviet Union, that was just unacceptable, Many of us had the confidence that, that would never happen again and yet the reality is that in Yemen that is precisely what we are looking at.”


The catastrophe in Yemen is often termed in the Media as the ‘forgotten war”, however the reality of the lack of insight into the suffering of the people and how the crisis of poverty has gotten so out of control, is result of deliberate neglect and orchestrated ignorance. It is the “ignored war”. Ignored by the insincere international agencies that have monitored the region for many years and have seem the death, starvation and suffering of the sick and have only the will to partially discuss facts. It does not use its International Laws against violating human rights to bring any of the nations to account, and like in Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq, Burma and the Blessed Land- Palestine, the they help dig the graves of the exclusively Muslim victims. It is ignored by the western agents paid to kill and injure women and children as they send their bombs raining downs on helpless Muslims who already have nothing in villages except to have faith in the victory of justice over evil by the power of Almighty Allah (swt).

The media are complicit in the cover-up of lies and deception as vague terms used in the reporting of events conceal the identity of the criminals involved in the mass murder of innocent civilians. The convenient label of “Saudi Led Coalition” is a detestable list of the worst kinds of rulers and human beings, that have been chosen by the western leaders as they know that they are merciless in their allegiance to non-Islamic laws and have no problems in shedding the blood of Muslim children to secure their own wealth and power. They represent the Hadith of the Prophet ﷺ when he warned of the loss of the good leadership and the calamities that will befall the Ummah as a result. Allah (swt) in the Quran spares to effort in exposing the enemies of truth when he spoke about the Mekkan ruler Abu Lahab who, like the Saudi led Coalition, took pleasure in torturing the Muslim believers, تَبَّتْ يَدَا أَبِي لَهَبٍ وَتَبَّ * مَا أَغْنَى عَنْهُ مَالُهُ وَمَا كَسَبَ“Perish the hands of the Father of Flame! Perish he! No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains!”

The fact that the international agencies are referring to the Yemen crisis as the worst in 100 years is a direct time link to the destruction of the Khilafah in 1924 which existed to look after the needs of people and give them all of their human rights. It was only after the just caretaker of Islamic politics left, that the greedy hands of western politicians could reach into our wealthy lands and steal the resources from its people. Under the Khilafah, Yemen was a region of the world that rescued other nations from starvation, refugee problems and natural disasters. This noble status can only return once the existing rulers are removed to allow the correct system of Islamic politics, in line with the Prophet Mohammad ﷺ to govern the citizens without a foreign agenda of corruption and manmade poverty.
