Uproot Musharraf, defender of the American Raj

بِسْمِ الله الرَّحمَنِ الرَحيم

O Muslims of the armed forces in Pakistan!

Uproot Musharraf, defender of the American Raj

O Muslims of the armed forces!
Allah سبحانه وتعالى says,

إِنَّ فِرْعَوْنَ عَلاَ فِي الأَرْضِ وَجَعَلَ أَهْلَهَا شِيَعًا يَسْتَضْعِفُ طَائِفَةً مِنْهُمْ يُذَبِّحُ أَبْنَاءَهُمْ وَيَسْتَحْيِ نِسَاءَهُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ مِنْ الْمُفْسِدِينَ
“Verily, Fir’aun exalted himself in the land and divided its people into sects, weakening a group amongst them, killing their sons and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the mufsidun.” [Surah al-Qassas 28:3]

During Ramadhan, the month of victory for Muslims, Pervez Musharraf ordered you to intensify the fight against your fellow Muslims in the tribal areas, whose only crime is to resist the brutal American occupation of Afghanistan. Villages within the tribal areas, containing men, women and children, were bombed. Indeed, hundreds of Muslims have been killed or injured. Pure Muslim blood in large amounts was shed, when a each drop of Muslim blood has a great weight for Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Indeed, Musharraf’s crimes go beyond even those of Fir’aun. Unlike Fir’aun, Musharraf did not only weaken some of the people, rather he weakened all the Muslims by causing a wasteful fight between them, so that the Americans may prevail in their occupation of the Islamic Lands. Unlike Fir’aun, Musharraf did not even spare the females, for he ordered the killing of the women, along with the elderly and the children, as he did in Lal Masjid.
Moreover you should remember, Fir’aun did not divide the people and kill the innocent himself, but through others. By doing so they took their share in his crime, in his sin, in the humiliation he faced in this life and in the punishment that he will face on the Day of Judgment.

O Muslims of the armed forces!
You swore to be protectors of the Muslims, defenders of the Islamic Lands, and the Muslims of the tribal areas are your brothers. Killing fellow Muslims without right is a grave sin in Islam. RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

سِبَابُ الْمُسْلِمِ فُسُوقٌ وَقِتَالُهُ كُفْرٌ
“Insulting a Muslim is Fusuq and killing him is Kufr” (Bukhari)

And remember, Islam has forbidden the Muslim from disobeying Allah سبحانه وتعالى for the sake of any man. RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

لَا طَاعَةَ لِمَخْلُوقٍ فِي مَعْصِيَةِ اللَّهِ
“No obedience to the created, in disobedience to Allah” (Ahmad)

O Muslims of the armed forces!
During Ramadhan and during Eid, we, the youth of Hizb ut-Tahrir, took to the streets to protest at this crime against the Muslims, Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم . You know us well, and you know that we will not rest until Allah سبحانه وتعالى causes His Deen to prevail or our heads depart our necks. So, we will continue to call upon you, despite all that we face of oppression from the Fir’aun of our time.

InshAllah, we will fulfill our pledge to Allah سبحانه وتعالى and demand that you fulfill yours, O sons of Khalid bin Walid رضي الله عنه, Tariq bin Ziyad, Muhammad bin Qassim and Salahudeen! Do you not yearn to be martyrs or victors for the sake of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم? Do you not yearn that your precious blood is spilled only so that the Deen of Truth prevails over all others, rather than your blood is wasted in fighting against Muslims? You are fully capable of removing this oppressive ruler and establishing the Khilafah in his place. Matters are in your hands and you will be raised in account for what evil has befallen upon our people today, and what will happen should America succeed in establishing its Raj over all of us.
