The Arrest of Dr. Salem Al Jaradat, One of the Workers of Hizb ut Tahrir
The repressive regime apparatus in Jordan, prior to Eid al-Adha and during these blessed days, arrested Dr. Salem al-Jaradat, one of the workers of Hizb ut Tahrir, without regard for the sanctity of these days, and without concern about depriving his incapacitated father from the care of his son, as Dr. Salem is the one who assists and cares for his sick father.
The regime in Jordan was not satisfied with the injustice that it inflicted on Dr. Salem Al-Jaradat before, as it arrested him many times and for many years, the last of which was his imprisonment for three years in 2017, and he was dismissed from his job, and even deprived of any job in his specialty despite obtaining a doctorate in the interpretation of the Qur’an. The regime was not satisfied with that, so it arrested him again during these blessed days and transferred him to the so-called "State Security Court" to bring false charges against him.
Dr. Salem was an example to follow in speaking the truth, exemplified by the hadith of the Prophet (saw): «أَفْضَلُ الْجِهَادِ كَلِمَةُ حَقٍّ عِنْدَ سُلْطَانٍ جَائِرٍ»“The most excellent jihad is when one speaks a true word in the presence of a tyrannical ruler.”
And everyone who accompanied Dr. Salem knows his frequent repetition of what the poet said: “All I know is what I am forced to drink … the cup of humiliation is not in my power.”
The people of Jordan will not forget his honorable position in expelling the Jews from the city of Karak years ago.
The only concern of this regime has become to arrest the honourable and loyal in this country; after its shameful failure in all the tasks that it should be preoccupied with, such as taking care of people's interests and preserving their livelihood, education and health, we find it excelling in silencing the voices of its accountants, by throwing them into prisons on charges that the far and near are aware of their lies.
But let the Jordanian regime know that these arrests will not discourage the Da’wah carriers from their call, as they are ready to sacrifice their dearest and most precious for its sake, and they will remain steadfast on that, Allah willing, until His victory, the Mighty and Sublime, comes
[وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ]
“And those who have wronged are going to know to what [kind of] return they will be returned” [TMQ Ash-Shu‘ara: 227].
