The Jordanian Regime is Crowning its Oppression by Seeking Power against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir via Two Laws: Prevention of Crimes and Prevention of “Terrorism”
After the Jordanian regime’s deafening of the ears of the people by its yelling about the sovereignty of its law, the realisation of justice, equality, fairness and transparency, through its claims of safeguarding the rights of the people, their dignity and its commitment to judicial independence and its integrity. The last of which was quoted by the regime’s government in its statement before the parliament where the Prime Minister Hani Al-Mulki said: “The government is committed to respecting the independence of the Jordanian judiciary and its integrity … which guarantees justice and equality amongst the citizens”.
And now (after all that) you have the Jordanian regime, through those who have sold their Hereafter for the Dunyaa of others, those who have practised oppression and fabrication and those who have twisted the truth and ignored it, shaping, via their malice, the issue of Hizb ut Tahrir, so that they are included in the law of the prevention of crimes and the law of the prevention of “terrorism”. Here you have the regime crowning off its oppression against the people whilst its continues to deceive them by gaining powers against them and their people from the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, through these two laws.
That is in the case where the administrative rulers have detained Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir administratively after the court had released them by imposing house arrest upon them for lengthy periods lasting up to six months and by specifying bails that have reached 100,000 Dinar, interfering with them by their authority and allegedly going over the head of the decisions of their courts which the head of their government claimed to respect their independence and integrity. They did that relying upon powers that had been provided to them by the law of the prevention of crimes which enabled them to oppress the people and take away their dignity.
Even though this law of prevention of crimes defined the categories that fall under it within the third article to those who have previous criminal records and does not include those who practise political work or those who have previous honourable records of being involved in Islamic politics, the administrative rulers nevertheless are using this law for oppression and aggression against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir in the absence of any accountability for their oppression and in the absence of a supporter of the Haqq (truth) to remove the oppression from them and prevent the interference of the administrative rulers against them!!
As for the regime seeking to empower itself against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir through the law of preventing “terrorism”, then that is because the state security court sentenced one of the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir oppressively and aggressively to four years’ imprisonment with temporary hard labour. He is Engineer At-Tayyib Al-Khalouf Al-Khadoum (Ibrahim Muhammad Abdul Fattaah Nasr) after attributing the following charges to him:
1- Propagating thoughts of a terrorist organisation by using the information network (IS organisation).
2- Undertaking actions which the state has not permitted and which by their nature damage the relations between the state and foreign states.
3- Extending one’s tongue (i.e. speaking about what one should not speak about)
In spite of none of these points from their list of crimes attributed to him actually being realised, instead of the court ignoring the lawsuit of the plaintiff with the accused Ibrahim Nasr and the pending case before the courts before conspiring a complaint for him before the military claims in the state security court, and they also ignored the testimony of the prosecution witness (the expert) in regards to electronic crimes, the deputised Waleed Abu Rabee’ which included within it: “…The publications contain literature supporting Hizb ut Tahrir and the establishment of the Islamic Khilafah…”
The court also ignored the admission of Engineer Ibrahim Nasr in respect to being affiliated to Hizb ut Tahrir and it has been proven that the court’s ignoring was only due to its certainty and what has settled in its emotions, that Hizb ut Tahrir is a political party and that there isn’t anything in its Shar’iyah method that it has adopted, and which all of its Shabab have definitely adopted, that includes undertaking any material acts. Also, that there is nothing within its thoughts which incites that and that it is not from its work to promote that. Consequently, it would never be able to place him under the law of the prevention of “terrorism”.
They therefore ignored the truth and the testimonies of the witnesses so that they could sentence one of the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, Engineer Ibrahim Nasr, in accordance to the law of the prevention of “terrorism” under the excuse that his Facebook page contained literature calling for the establishment of the Khilafah upon the methodology of the Prophethood, which Hizb ut Tahrir has been calling and working for since the year 1953 i.e. decades before the appearance of the IS organisation. Whilst undertaking that work its Shabab have met what they have met in terms being killed, torture, being pursued and fired from their place of employment and being banned from travel, without that weakening their determination or them yielding and giving in, remain patient and steadfast anticipating that with Allah until this moment and will continue as such until Allah bestows victory upon the Ummah and the near consolidation by the permission of Allah Ta’Aalaa.
And it was also because his Facebook account contained the publication of the image of the Raayah of Al-‘Uqaab upon it, the Raayah (banner) of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, the banner of all Muslims, the banner of Laa Ilaaha Illallah Muhammadur Rasoolullah, and which is present in the royal records within a historical series about the Muslim banners. So what kind of oppression and repression is this, what kind of disrespect is this towards the life of the people and what kind of determination does this represent in respect to fighting the callers to Islam and those who work for it?! ﴿وَاتَّقُواْ يَوْمًا تُرْجَعُونَ فِيهِ إِلَى اللّهِ﴾ “And fear a Day in which you will be returned to Allah” [Al-Baqarah: 281].
Will the court of cassation now treat Engineer Ibrahim Nasr fairly, just as it dealt fairly before with Hizb ut Tahrir and the accused in what was known as the ‘Mu’tah case’ when the judges at that time preferred to be independent from the oppression of the people, like the noble judge Abdul Karim Mu’adh? And those that history mentions and the people remember, or will the speech of Allah Ta’Aalaa be applied upon them?
﴿وَالَّذِينَ يُؤْذُونَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِغَيْرِ مَا اكْتَسَبُوا فَقَدِ احْتَمَلُوا بُهْتَانًا وَإِثْمًا مُّبِينًا﴾
“And those who harm believing men and believing women for [something] other than what they have earned, have certainly born upon themselves a slander and manifest sin” [Al-Ahzaab: 58].
