Day after day the work of colonialists is becoming slow and failing since they don't have nay agent who is able to convince the ummah about freedom and democracy.
Q. In this situation of occupation does the government harm the workers of the Khilafah?
A. As I said all the people in
Q. Some people say that the work for the Khilafah is by few people only. Are there other people who are working for Khilafah?
A. First of all we need to understand one thing. This thought of Khilafah is not the thought of Hizb ut-Tahrir only rather it is accepted by all the ulema in the past and in the modern times. No person ever negated its existence except Asam the mutazili and in recent times Ali Abdul Raziq from al-Azhar in Egypt and this issue is an issue of the complete ummah and HT follows this path.
Q. Do you have ulema working for Khilafah in Iraq?
A. The first alim who can be remembered was Sheikh Abdul-Aziz al-Badri who was killed by the oppressive baathist regime and he was also from the shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir. And many from the ulema and shabab are working for the reestablishing of the Khilafah
Q. There were many ulema and shabab working for Khilafah who were killed by the Iraqi regime. Do you know happen to know some of these shabab ?
Ans. Saddam hussain was an oppressive ruler who ruled the country with an iron fist and imposed the socialist system on them. He believed in Arab nationalism and rallied people behind the same emblem. He killed many ulema who were working for the reestablishment of the Khilafah as I told you the first one from them was Sheikh Abdul Aziz Badri (may allah be pleased with him) and Sheikh Mohammad Baqir al-Sadr. And my sheikh who cultured me in Hizb ut-Tahrir was killed in 1990. He was known as Anwar from
Q. To what we know there is a constant struggle between the shias and sunnis. Is it true?
A. The Shias and sunnis and Arabs and non Arabs lived together all through the Khilafah until the agents of the British colonialists started infiltrating the Muslim ummah and corrupting their thoughts. One of the famous ones of them who also wrote some books was Hempher. As he writes in his book that there aim was to divide the people but they were not successful and this land has remained united from the days of the 20th revolution till date. Then after the destruction of Saddam's regime came the new colonialist powers which is the American colonialism.
