O Muslims! Eject America, the cause of the mischief and strife that you suffer today
Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,
قَدْ بَدَتْ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ
“Rank hatred is uttered from their mouths but that which their chests conceal is greater.” [Surah Aali-Imran 3:118]
Without doubt, the rank hatred of the Western colonialists against Islam has surpassed all limits. Publishing cartoons insulting RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم again, remaining silent as the Jewish state massacres the Muslims of Palestine and making films denouncing the Qur’an, are but a few recent examples of the crusader contempt against Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم.
It is this enmity towards Islam that has compelled Western powers to be actively involved in the affairs of Pakistan, the most powerful of the Muslim states, unleashing unprecedented chaos and bloodshed in the country, whether in the form of bomb blasts in the major cities or virtual civil war in Balochistan and the tribal areas.
So, for the past seven years, America has launched a war against the Muslims and Islam in this region. And what a tragedy, to the point of being a cruel mockery, that America has always used the strength of the Muslims, against the Muslims themselves, whether it is operations in the tribal areas, Swat or Balochistan, or the massacre in Lal Masjid or logistics support for the invasion of Afghanistan.
And it is America that maintains an atmosphere of instability and bloodshed in Pakistan, so that she can justify intervention, just as she did in Middle, East, Central and South America and Africa before. This is the reason why when Musharraf attacked Lal Masjid, spilling the blood of innocent boys and girls for the so-called crime of desiring Islam, American officials could hardly contain their glee. And when the Interior Minister, Hamid Nawaz, stated the open truth, that America has a hand in the chaos and strife within the country today, the US Ambassador, Anne Patterson, reacted vigorously, as if she were a thief caught in the act.
And it is America that directly supervised the changes in the political set-up, to ensure that its interests are secured and Pakistan remains constitutionally under America’s control. So, many months prior to the elections, American officials scuttled back and forth between the politicians, to make a power-sharing deal to save her agent Musharraf, who had become a figure of hate for his implementation of American policies. Then, after the elections, the US Ambassador ensured she met every politician, of every hue and colour. And as for the leaders of the successful political parties, they were so anxious to please America, that they did not even mention a single word about the horrendous defamation of RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم, in case they would lose her support. As if America’s pleasure was more important than that of Allah سبحانه وتعالى and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم! So, even though the election results were a reflection of hate against Musharraf and America, the impending political change will not weaken America’s hold over Pakistan.
And as if America’s mischief was not enough, America now wants to extend its control directly, as the weakness of Musharraf becomes more apparent. America has already established over forty FBI offices in Pakistan, acting as bases for mischief and corruption. Then America launched missiles using unmanned aircraft on Pakistani soil, in the tribal areas, inflaming strife to the point of civil war. And most recently, America demands that up to one hundred of its officers come in to directly command the Muslims of Pakistan’s army.
O Muslims of Pakistan!
The consequences of binding Pakistan to America are before you. Even though the rulers cry until their voices become hoarse, claiming that friendship with America is for the national interest, trying to deceive you that Pakistan needs America. But in fact America is needed only by Musharraf, his henchmen and those shamelessly opportunist politicians, that prostrate before America for the sake of achieving power, sacrificing the interest of all the people for the sake of American interests. Indeed, how can the kuffar colonialists ever be our need, when Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,
كَيْفَ وَإِنْ يَظْهَرُوا عَلَيْكُمْ لاَ يَرْقُبُوا فِيكُمْ إِلاًّ وَلاَ ذِمَّةً يُرْضُونَكُمْ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَتَأْبَى قُلُوبُهُمْ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ
“How when, if they have the upper hand over you, they disregard pact and honour in respect to you? They satisfy you with their mouths, whilst their hearts refuse. And most of them are wrong-doers.” [Surah At-Tawba 9:8]
Embracing America, let alone giving her the upper hand, is like embracing the snake, who draws close only to bite you. Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,
إِنْ يَثْقَفُوكُمْ يَكُونُوا لَكُمْ أَعْدَاءً وَيَبْسُطُوا إِلَيْكُمْ أَيْدِيَهُمْ وَأَلْسِنَتَهُمْ بِالسُّوءِ وَوَدُّوا لَوْ تَكْفُرُونَ
"Should they gain the upper hand over you, they would behave to you as enemies, and stretch forth their hands and their tongues against you with evil, and they desire that you should disbelieve" [Surah Mumtahina 60: 2]
O Muslims of the armed forces!
O sons of Salahudeen and Muhammad bin Qasim!
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)
Is it not a source of grief that the people you have sworn to protect have not been stung twice, but countless times through alliance with America, the open enemy of Islam and the Muslims? Is it not a source of shame that your pure blood is spilled to secure America’s occupation in Afghanistan, whilst fighting your own Muslim brothers, rather than carrying the word of Allah سبحانه وتعالى as the highest? The situation demands that you refuse any cooperation with the colonialist political and military officials, close their intelligence offices, throw them and their agents out of the country, for you alone have this capability.
And there is no way to permanently end America’s grip on the Muslims, except to establish Islam as a state and rule. It is said that the throne of Allah سبحانه وتعالى shook upon the death of Sa’ad ibn Mu’adh رضي الله عنه, he who gave the Nusrah, material support, to establish Islam. Such a magnificent opportunity awaits you today. It is high time that you pledged to Hizb ut-Tahrir the material support, Nusrah, so as to establish the Second Khilafah Rashida. Only then can we unify our Ummah as one hand in the face of our enemy, America, Britain and their allies. Only then can we lead the world and carry Islam to it as a Message of guidance and light. Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,
وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَى أَمْرِهِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ
"And Allah has full power and control over His Affairs, but most of men know not" [Surah Yusuf 12: 21]
