America Drags South and Southeast Asia into Chaos, yet the leaders of the BRICS condemn Islam!
Islam is the Basis for Tranquility in these Regions and the World, Rather than a Cause for Concern!
Regarding what concerns us in this clarification and response to the Xiamen Declaration made by the member states of BRICS in the issued as a final draft on Monday, 4 September 2017, which mentions that the member states, "express deep concern over the ongoing tension and prolonged nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, and emphasize that it should only be settled through peaceful means and direct dialogue of all the parties concerned." What concerns us in this response is neither the fact that America is trying to drag the region of South and Southeast Asia into ignited chaos, so as to intervene in the region as a supporter of the threatened states and as a deterrent against "rogue states", using North Korea's mischief as a pretext, knowing that these military tests are nothing more than “fireworks” to achieve political and media goals, nor the fact that the leaders of BRICS have fallen into the trap set by America, parroting what was said about the seriousness of the actions of North Korea…
However, what concerns us in this response is what is stated in the final draft, that many of the Islamic movements, real and imagined, are of concern to these countries and amongst those movements is Hizb ut Tahrir. We in Hizb ut Tahrir do not accept to be the subject of accusation by any party, especially from countries that are hostile to Islam and to the idea of the return to governing by Islam, such as Russia, India and China. Thus we direct this clarification to the Islamic Ummah so that it is aware of what is being plotted against it and its great Deen, as well to the misguided people of BRICS, that are ruled by a handful of greedy capitalists, who are only interested in increasing their wealth and keeping their power and control, through the enslavement and oppression of their people, whilst misleading them, away from their liberation through the great Deen of Islam. To the Islamic Ummah and to those people we say:
Firstly, Hizb ut Tahrir is a political party whose ideology is Islam. It carries Islam as a civilized project, an alternative to the man-made systems that has only brought misery to humankind. The party is a group from the Islamic Ummah, working with it to liberate it from the hegemony of Western countries, that are greedy for its wealth. The party works with the Ummah to propagate Islam as a civilized alternative to the people, who are governed by the injustice of capitalism. The party does so in compliance with the command of Allah (swt), which contains the best for humanity and the best for the people, especially the oppressed and enslaved, such as the populations of the BRICS nations.
Secondly: "Terrorism" is an exclusive American creation which is used by the rest of the world, including the BRICS countries to use as a justification to attack Islam and pursue the sincere Dawah carriers, to prevent the return of Islam, the Deen of mercy to humanity, and to stop its return to ruling, which will expose the falsity and failure of man-made systems, and confirm to everyone that Islam is really the savior of the people from the injustice of capitalism, as well as the capitalists and their greed, from amongst whom are the rulers.
Thirdly: The world and the South and Southeast Asia region have not seen safety and security, as they did during the period when Islam dominated the region, so much so that for a period of time, China, for centuries, was pushed to disband its army, because it felt no external threat. The region has never been as prosperous as it was when Islam was implemented in the region, during which India was the world's food basket and gave loans to the British Empire to save it from the corruption of its economic lords. Under man-made systems, including capitalism and Chinese communism, the region was turned into an arms race arena, harming the people of the region that count for more than half of the world's population. It reduced them into poor people, despite their wealth of natural resources and vast human resources.
Fourthly: Everyone must be aware that the Islam carried by Hizb ut Tahrir with its precise understanding is the civilized alternative to humanity. It is the only way to rescue people of this region from the hunger and destitution within which they live. The reality of Islam, its rules and systems, in caring for people's affairs confirms to every sensible person that the rules of Islam are unique in looking after people's affairs, and that they achieve happiness, well-being and justice for people. History attests to this, and this is explained in detail by the party, in its culture that it published in its books and on its websites.
Fifthly: We call upon the Islamic Ummah to bring this Deen of Islam to power. This is by making the people of power and support give the Nusrah (Material Support) to Hizb ut Tahrir, the political party that is aware of how to rule by the great Deen of Islam so that the Ummah returns as a guiding beacon to the world. We invite the people of the region, the thinkers, those concerned for the well-being of their people, to adopt the civilized Deen of Islam, as a belief, way of life and a system of government, and to demand that their rulers adopt the belief of Islam and its ruling system, so that they escape the miserable situation that they live in and save themselves from the torment of Hell.
[قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ تَعَالَوْا إِلَى كَلِمَةٍ سَوَاءٍ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمْ أَلَّا نَعْبُدَ إِلَّا اللَّهَ وَلَا نُشْرِكَ بِهِ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَتَّخِذَ بَعْضُنَا بَعْضًا أَرْبَابًا مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَقُولُوا اشْهَدُوا بِأَنَّا مُسْلِمُونَ]
“Say, "O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him]."” [Al-i-Imran: 64]
