It is prohibited for the Ummah to have such rulers over them who do not respect ties of kinship and violate the covenant
The Pakistan Supreme Court, which met today, did not reverse validity of the Musharraf’s election as President for a second term as per the results of the elections held on 6/10/2007 despite the fact that he has trampled upon and violated all sanctities.
The country has opened the floodgates to America in its brutal aggression Afghanistan, making Pakistan the frontal site for the American army to carry out its brutal massacres in Afghanistan.
America then ordered him to send his army to fight Muslim tribes in the regions bordering Afghanistan where Musharraf sent some ninety thousand soldiers to fight and kill their own brothers in order to protect America and its stooges in Afghanistan. Musharraf ordered killing of tribal chiefs in Baluchistan, and others, and violated his agreement with the tribes and engaged in violence and mortal sins against the brothers in the tribal areas, and yet the US is not content with that and continues to demand more!
He has abandoned the issue of Kashmir, and not content with that, he has been repelling the Kashmiri Mujahideen, arresting them, and the prohibiting their presence in Pakistan. He has even given up on the Kashmiri self-determination resolution adopted by the Western countries and proceeded to normalise relations with India and thus conceded Indian claim on most of the disputed land of Kashmir!
Musharraf then rejected mediation that were under way and ordered the bombing of the Red Mosque with destructive weapons in total disregard for the Ulema and students of Islamic school not only at the Red Mosque but everywhere.
And then he realized that his credibility had plummeted and people hated him so much that he feared the defeat of his supported in the forthcoming parliamentary elections in January 2008. This fear was so evident that Musharraf knew that a new parliament will not elect him as president for a second term and therefore he used the current Parliamentary Electoral College to retain his hold over the presidency. Thus he ‘won’ the elections that took place on 6/10/2007.
In keeping with the custom of all agents and stooges, Musharraf has changed his colours whenever the fluctuating equation with his masters has demanded. As Musharraf lost his credibility among the people of Pakistan and the American influence in the region suffered as a result, the US found itself in need of the British to salvage its influence in region, Musharraf thus ordered pardon for Benazir Bhutto, overnight she became ‘clean’, although Musharraf had been accusing her of corruption hitherto in order to prevent her from returning to Pakistan. Now in the changed scenario, he has been making overtures to her in order to share power over the blood of Muslims. Bhutto’s arrival in Karachi today marks the first step in that direction of implementing the deal!
O Muslims in Pakistan!
It is a matter of shame that people like Musharraf and Bhutto, who are at war with Allah (swt) and His Prophet (saw) are holding you to ransom. They are spilling your blood and have allowed your country down to be used for the interest of your enemies. They have neither respected the sanctity of mosques, the Quran schools nor the Ulema or the great Mujahideen. They have robbed Pakistan of its resources and weakened its strength making it vulnerable and poor. And not content with that, they have to extent of amending the education curriculum to to suit the interest of their American masters!
Truly, such rulers are the ones who belong to the category mentioned by Allah (swt) in the Quran:
]أَلَـمْ تَـرَ إِلَى الَّذِيـنَ بَـدَّلُـوا نِـعْـمَـةَ اللَّهِ كُـفْـرًا وَأَحَـلُّـوا قَوْمَهُمْ دَارَ الْبَوَارِ (28) جَهَنَّمَ يَصْلَوْنَهَا وَبِئْسَ الْقَرَارُ[.
“Have you not seen those who have changed the Blessings of Allâh into disbelief (by denying Prophet Muhammad (saw) and his Message of Islâm), and caused their people to dwell in the house of destruction. Hell, in which they will burn, - and what an evil place to settle in!” [TMQ Ibraheem: 28]
Dear Muslim soldiers!
Is there not a wise one among you? How can you remain a silent and passive onlooker while he is at war with Islam? How can you meekly watch while he bombs and destroys mosques?? How can he conspire against your tribal brothers and order their killing and yet you obey him? How can he plunder your country for the interest of the Kafir colonialists and your blood does not boil over it? How can America be the master in your country ordering and prohibiting to suit its own interest and your ammunition remain unused?!
Dear soldiers, you are the sons of those great people who welcomed Mohammed bin Qasim. They were content with merely entering into the fold of Islam and sitting in the comfortable safety of their homes, rather, they accompanied Mohammed bin Qasim in Jihad and opening of other lands, and protected Islam and Muslims as soon as they became Muslims: Islam became their cause as well as their first priority and the Islamic State was their own state! They helped Allah (swt) and Allah (swt) helped them in return; and they were truthful.
Dear soldiers, you are the sons of those who named your country as the ‘pure land’ (Pakistan) with resolve and determination that it will be a safe sanctuary for Islam and Muslims, and be governed by whatever Allah (swt) has revealed and make Jihad in the path of Allah. How can this country become a secular country like the US and how can you accept the Capitalist system instead of Islamic system as your way of life. How can you accept killing of your own brothers instead of Jihad against the Kafir colonialists?
Dear Muslim soldiers
Hizb ut Tahrir calls upon you to galvanise your resolve and urges you to rise up against these rulers who have been assigned to your necks by your own enemies, who have committed all evil crimes, so hold their hand and remove them from your necks, so that Allah (swt) does not punish you along with them! You must remember that Allah (swt) punishes every oppressor who causes agony for his oppression but He (swt) also punishes those passive onlookers who do nothing to stop the oppression and remain passive, He says:
]وَاتَّقُوا فِتْنَةً لاَ تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْكُمْ خَاصَّةً وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ[
“And fear the Fitnah (affliction and trial) which affects not in particular (only) those of you who do wrong (but it may afflict all the good and the bad people), and know that Allâh is Severe in punishment.” [TMQ al-Anfaal: 25]
Also, Allah (swt) revealed to His Prophet, as reported by Syedna Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq (ra) and reported in Tirmidhi:
«إِنَّ النَّاسَ إِذَا رَأَوْا الظَّالِمَ فَلَمْ يَأْخُذُوا عَلَى يَدَيْهِ أَوْشَكَ أَنْ يَعُمَّهُمْ اللَّهُ بِعِقَابٍ مِنْهُ»
"If people saw an oppressor committing oppression and yet did nothing to stop him from his act, then soon Allah (swt) will punish them."
Dear Muslims and Muslim soldiers! Seek refuge of Allah (swt) alone and make your deen victorious, rise up to raise the flag of your Prophet saw. Hizb ut Tahrir supports you, so support its cause; it is ready to come to your rescue and help you, so assist it. Wipe out the oppression by removing the oppressor. Wipe off the rule of oppression and oppressors, and establish the state of Islam and Muslims, the Khilafah State. Allah willing, you will succeed in forming the Khilafah State. Your present rulers occupy the position of ruling because of the strength of your swords. If you withdraw the strength of your arms, it will shake their foundations and they will be no more, they are detested by Allah (swt), His Prophet (saw) and all the believers.
Dear Muslim soldiers!
Indeed Musharraf has rebelled against Allah (swt) and he violated his commands, and imposed America’s hegemony over Islam and Muslims. It is therefore not acceptable that he continues to wreak havoc right in front of your own eyes while you merely watch and do nothing to stop him.
]إِنَّ فِي هَذَا لَبَلاَغًا لِقَوْمٍ عَابِدِينَ[
“Verily, in this (the Qur'ân) there is a plain Message for people who worship Allâh” [TMQ al-Anbiyaa: 106].
