بِسْمِ الله الرَّحمَنِ الرَحيم
On 13 September 2007, during the visit of US Deputy Secretary of State, John Negroponte, President General Pervez Musharraf emphatically denied any dictation from America in Pakistan’s affairs. On state television, Musharraf claimed, “No one is dictating to us ... We are taking action in the national interest.” Musharraf further added that Pakistan is a strong Muslim country, saying, “We are not weak. We have stature in the region and in the Ummah. We are a nuclear and missile power [with a population] of 160 million.”
However, since 12 October 1999 until now, Musharraf has consistently used Pakistan’s many strengths to secure colonialist interests, despite dire consequences for the Muslims of Pakistan. Moreover, the current wrangling over ruling- involving supreme-court proceedings over Musharraf’s election as a President, deportations of politicians, briefings between politicians of all colors with the British and the Americans- will surely prolong subservience to the colonialists, regardless of its outcome in terms of changes of faces. This was an inevitable matter because the current system is inherently designed to secure the interests of the colonialists, regardless of whether the ruler is civilian or military, dictator or democrat, inclined to the Americans or the British.
The present system has ensured that over the last eight years, the affairs of Muslims have worsened so that the colonialists may prevail over them. This is despite changes of faces through elected assemblies and prime ministers. This is also despite the presence of those who call for the implementation of Islam through the present system.
Through the present system, America secured the use of Pakistan’s airbases to enable it to viciously bomb Afghanistan, preparing the ground for an invasion and occupation. Then when America’s occupying forces faced fierce resistance from the Muslims of the tribal areas, America was able to ensure that Pakistan’s soldiers fought their own Muslim brothers, creating chaos and an atmosphere of fear throughout Pakistan. With its army, the world’s seventh largest, engaged in a disruptive conflict within its own borders, Pakistan now becomes less of a threat to America.
Also, through the present system, America ensured that the Muslims of Kashmir were abandoned before the brutal Indian aggressors. Jihad against the Hindu occupying forces was declared a crime. Now, the Muslims of Kashmir and Pakistan are to concede to Hindu injustice and supremacy, in spite of the fact that Muslims as a minority ruled by the light of Islam over the whole of the Indian Subcontinent for hundreds of years.
And through the present system, America is seeking to prevent the Ummah’s relentless return to Islam. The Americans are deeply concerned about the growth of Islam. On 28 February 2006, Negroponte, Director of National Intelligence at the time, testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee, “In general, Muslims are becoming more aware of their Islamic identity, leading to growing political activism…” America fears that Islamic revival will naturally lead to the political change that is required in the Muslim World- the uprooting of the colonialist system and the re-establishment of the Khilafah- as has been mentioned repeatedly by both British and American government officials.
Fearing the demise of the system that has served them so well for so long, America hopes to deceive the Muslims by making a cosmetic, artificial change by changing the faces in the present system through elections. On 12 September 2007, Negroponte said, “We look forward to democratic elections being held in Pakistan quite shortly and we think it is quite important that there be a smooth and democratic political transition.”
The Americans hope that the change in faces will vent some of the anger of the people, whilst allowing the colonialist system to continue. And the Americans consider this as a matter of vital importance and this is why the US government has invested millions of dollars in Pakistan’s system and has been active in meeting Pakistan’s politicians, rulers and assembly members.
It is inevitable that the present system will always secure the interests of the colonialists, regardless of who comes to rule within it, whether by elections or coup. The fundamental basis of the present system is that man should be the one to decide the Halaal and Haraam, the good and bad i.e. man should place himself in the position of Legislator instead of Allah سبحانه وتعالى. The colonialists are then able to ensure that both the rulers and the assemblies make laws according to their interests.
Whilst Islam stipulates that the ruler is elected by choice and consent and it stands against the one who usurps the authority, Islam denies both the elected Khaleefah and the elected members of the Majlis-e-Ummah the right to decide what is Halal and what is Haram for themselves as occurs in democracy and dictatorship. And Allah سبحانه وتعالى revealed,
وَمَنْ لَمْ يَحْكُمْ بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ الظَّالِمُونَ
“Those who do not judge by the law which Allah has revealed, they are the oppressors.” [Surah Al-Maidah 5:45]
And Allah سبحانه وتعالى revealed,
وَمَا آتَاكُمْ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَاكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانْتَهُوا وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَاب
“So take what RasulAllah assigns to you and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you. And fear Allah; for Allah is strict in Punishment.” [Surah Al-Hashr 59:7]
O Muslims of Pakistan!
RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم warned the Muslims,
لَا يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ
“A believer is never stung from the same whole twice.” (Bukhari)
Without doubt the Muslims of Pakistan have not been stung twice, but countless times from the present system for over sixty years. It is high time that you forsook the present system that allows rulers to rule over you by a constitution and laws based on Kufr, whether dictatorship or democracy, and liberate yourselves from the clutches of the Kafir colonialists. That can only happen by establishing a Khilafah state and by electing a Khaleefah to rule and representatives of the Majlis-e-Ummah to provide consultation and accounting. Only then the strength of the Muslims will be used to liberate them from the oppression of the colonialists through the implementation of Islam.
يَاأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ
“O you who believe! Give your response to Allah and His Messenger, when He calls you to that which gives you life.” (Surah Anfal 8:24)
