Houthi Militias follow the way of the Oppressors in Fabricating Charges against Members of Hizb ut-Tahrir
Houthi (Ansar Allah) militias continue to detain the two members of Hizb ut Tahrir, Brother Yehia Hussein Dakhlaa, age 40, and Brother Saleh Jibran Al Dhalmi, age 23, who were arrested on Friday 15/11/2014 CE from their homes, without guilt, except that they said a word of truth and distributed a press release issued by the party about the new government in which it addressed the international conflict in Yemen, which has become an obvious fact not secret to anyone with sense.
In fact, we have issued a press release prior to this release on the arrest of the two mentioned Shababs, wherein we addressed the wise ones in this group to release the detainees and to understand the aim of Hizb ut Tahrir, its thought and its methodology for change, but all to no avail. In addition the families of the two members and some members of the party had pursued and met with officials in the group where some of them seemed understanding and concerned but are confronted with a negative feedback from some officials in their group for their understanding and concern. Especially from those security forces in the group who their hands are contaminated with crimes under the former regime who have joined them or within the ongoing security coordination between the group and the security services, where they started using lag and shuffle methods then fabrication; as in the case of many of the criminal police regimes in the world, and tried to tarnish the image of the party and its method, but it is impossible. Those forces have tried to lure some of the sincere in the group who seemed understanding and concerned - and Allah is knowing of them - where they claimed that the detained Shababs are involved in planting explosives, and they forgot the issue of the distribution of the publications? !! Those slanders that Russia, the spiteful against Islam and Muslims, including Hizb ut Tahrir, has mastered, where the police come with explosives to put in the homes of the party's Shabab and then detain them for those charges to label them terrorists. And this is only because of its insolvency in the face of the ideological and political struggle pursued by the party as part of the rulings (Ahkam) of its method of establishing the Khilafah Ar-Rashidah on the method of Prophethood.
As we thank those who have expressed their understanding and concern for the brotherhood of Islam, we call on them to take at the hands of oppressors, that if they have a decision, otherwise we call on them to leave the group and work to expose its acts and crimes against all the Muslims of Yemen. The group has repudiated its declared principles and values, all this for panting behind evanescent influence that made them vulnerable to penetration by the people of greediness, rather by regimes and systems that used to antagonize it. Otherwise how can it accept in its ranks those security forces or coordinate with them and betray the sincere of its sons who once had been with some of our Shabab in one prison!? Rather, how it allies with the jailer and listens to him and follows his actions as if it were in a study course inside the prison to learn the acts of the jailers then it applies them once it accessed power, and suddenly it is an injustice tool that once cried and fled from it for years!? The funny rather the wailing, is that the media channels of this group mastered in indignation at injustice and filming what it seized from jails and detention centers, and then when tested the logos evaporate!!!
We reiterate our address to those who have faith (Iman) and wisdom (Hikma) in this group to consider the sincere and honorable positions of the party that it stood with the Ummah and with its movements and groups when subjected to injustice by the oppressive regimes. Those positions are not favors that we conferred but a duty commanded by Allah upon every Muslim. And we have issued press releases and booklets on the prohibition of fighting among Muslims and our work to stop it as we could, including the unjust wars that afflicted them in Sa'ada and others, where we showed the solutions and treatments for such conflicts. Our mention of these positions is not in propitiation and entreaty, but to inform the sincere in this group and the deluded that we are at the right and the rotten sectarianism and Madh'habism are not in our calculations.
We do not have for you except advice if you are ones who could be advised, otherwise we will sear you with the word of truth. We will remain arrows of the truth and a thorn in the throat of every oppressor and ruler who does not govern by the Laws of Allah until we establish it, Allah willing, Khilafah Rashidah upon the method of Prophethood. Allah سبحانه وتعالى is the One whose help is sought and Upon Him we rely.

Nearly 36 million men, women and children are living in modern slavery worldwide in 2014, according to the second edition of Walk Free's Global Slavery Index (GSI) describing modern slavery as a "hidden crime" and "big business." The organisation defined modern slavery as the deprivation of individual liberty for the purpose of exploitation. This broad definition includes many slavery-related practices such as human trafficking, forced labor, debt bondage, forced marriage, commercial sexual exploitation and the sale and exploitation of children.
The survey has shown that modern slavery exists throughout each of the 167 surveyed countries. Accordingly India –the world's largest democracy – has with 14 million out of a 1.2 billion population the highest number of enslaved people in the world, followed by China (3.2 million), Pakistan (2.1 million), Uzbekistan (1.2 million), Russia (1.05 million), Nigeria (834,200), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (762,900), Indonesia (714,100), Bangladesh (680,900) and Thailand (475,300). Taken together, these 10 countries account for 71 percent of the total estimated 35.8 million people living in modern slavery these days. The highest estimated prevalence of modern slavery as a proportion of population exists in Mauritania. Also Europe has its share in modern slavery with 566,000 people, led by Turkey on the top with 185,500 people. At the same time these numbers prove that slavery has little to do with poverty.
The ever-increasing mass dehumanization of millions of people, mostly women and children, facing economic, physical and sexual exploitation, is the outcome of the capitalist ideology. This ideology through its man-made 'high' values of 'economic success' and 'profit' has produced selfish and exploitative rulers, employers and rich minorities obsessed with turning this world into paradise for themselves, while setting other people, their rights and lives and any true values at naught. In contrast with capitalism, the ideology of Islam is not man-made, but revealed by Allah the Creator of the worlds. Islam aims at the prevention of tyranny in any form, including the eradication of the enslavement of individuals. Allah's Messenger Muhammed صلى الله عليه وسلم for example said:
«ثَلَاثَةٌ أَنَا خَصْمُهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، رَجُلٌ أَعْطَى بِي ثُمَّ غَدَرَ، وَرَجُلٌ بَاعَ حُرًّا فَأَكَلَ ثَمَنَهُ، وَرَجُلٌ اسْتَأْجَرَ أَجِيرًا فَاسْتَوْفَى مِنْهُ وَلَمْ يُعْطِ أَجْرَهُ»
"There are three people whom I will oppose on the Day of Resurrection: a man who gives his word by Me but proves treacherous; a man who sells a free person and consumes the price; and a man who employs a worker and receives a completed job but he does not pay him his wages."
(Sahih Bukhari, Number 430)
Islam's understanding of economy and therefore its economic policies aim at the effective distribution of wealth, so that the basic needs of all individuals are fulfilled, while at the same time every person is also enabled to afford for luxury goods. Adultery and prostitution and especially forced prostitution are to be penalized heavily, which deters those who think to gain profit through sexually exploiting women and children. Islam motivates Muslims to take care of the people around them, being close or far relatives, neighbours or anyone else, and also forces the state to close the debts of a person who is not able to do so anymore. These and more principles of Islam in tackling poverty and any form of oppression, including slavery are time-tested and organized in a manner to provide the peace and justice again in any place of the world at any time – as soon as implemented again in the form of the Khilafah State.
