On the 11th May 2012 whilst bringing his children home from school, Naveed Butt, official spokesman for Hizb ut-Tahrir in Pakistan was confronted by a group of some ten or more men, some with the word security embossed on their t-shirts. In front of his frightened children he was bundled into an awaiting Suzuki van a standard vehicle used by the Pakistani Intelligence Service (ISI).
This kind of abduction is a common practice used by the ISI to kidnap those who oppose and expose the corruption and servitude of the Pakistani government to the Americans. Naveed Butt has for many years been a staunch opponent of successive Pakistani governments and has espoused an alternative forward looking Islamic Khilafah system for Pakistan.
It is obvious to those familiar with the threatening tactics of the Pakistani authorities that Naveed’s political views are the motivation behind his abduction.
This website has been primarily setup by those concerned with these events and to spread the word about the adduction and subsequent disappearance of Naveed Butt and others like him.
May Allah (swt) protect Naveed Butt in his moments of hardship, for prison is better for him than the slavery to the colonial forces of evil.
“My Lord, the prison is preferable to me than what they call on me to do.” [Surah Yusuf: 33]
