29th of October, Republic celebrations are carried out during this particular period when the aftershocks of the coup attempt are still felt, system discussions, internal conflicts, terrorist attacks, struggles, poverty and distrust still rule over peoples' lives. The Republic, allegedly build upon the people’s will, has been imposed on the Muslim population and has provided nothing but godlessness, poverty, chaos and tyranny. The Republic has been established by the local co-operators on the prerequisite of abolishing the Ottoman State and the Khilafah, it is an English project brought together in order to fight Islam and entrench secularism in Turkey. For the English demanded from Turkey after World War I its most valuable treasure, its pillar, that kept the Ummah united, the Khilafah, supposedly to liberate us. Appointed by Mustapha Kamal, Ismet Inönu was offered four secret terms for independence by the English Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Lord Curzon in the Lausanne meetings. These were: the total abolishment of the Khilafah, exile of the Khalif, confiscation of all of the Khalif's property and establishing a state based on secularism in other words the Republic.
This treasonous agreement which no Muslim could accept, was heavily opposed by the members of the parliament. Because what Mustapha Kamal and Ismet Inönu would give to the English was what the Muslims fought for centuries, was priceless. But Mustapha Kamal who established the Republic through trickery, intrigue and force, stood and said in 29th of October in the parliament: "We have to change this system. And I have decided it to be a Republic which is led by an elected president". So like that the Republic was established and imposed upon the Muslims. However, the English did not sign the Treaty of Lausanne until the Khilafah was abolished on the 3rd of March 1924. Even this is enough to confirm that the establishment of the Republic and the abolishment of the Khilafah is related to Lausanne.
O Muslims! The Republic is not, like it is propagated to you, a system that gives the authority to the people. Quite the opposite it is established through force, imposition, trickery and intrigue. It is a system, rotten to its core, the English chose in order to implement their imperialist plans. We know the Republic from its Independence Courts, Takrir-i Sukun laws, from Sheikh Sait, from Atıf Hoja Iskilipii, from the Turkish Adhans, from the gallows erected on the city squares, from Keriman Halis who attended beauty contests, from the poverty, from godlessness and from the greatest lie of our time, democracy. The Republic is not a system established in Ankara in the parliament, it’s an English project imposed in Lausanne. We did not only lose land with agreeing to the Treaty of Lausanne, we lost something more important - our Khilafah that kept the Ummah standing and shielded the Muslims! The English did not only take our authority on Mosul in Lausanne. They took away Islam and the Quran from our lives by establishing the Republic and abolishing the Khilafah. Then why do you still look up to this rotten system? Democratic Parliamentary System and the Democratic Presidential System are both nothing but the variants of the secular Republic. The Muslims' real project is the Khilafah Rashidah (Caliphate) upon the method of the Prophethood that will soon be established. Then work for the Khilafah and support those who work for it.
