Activation of Article 80, Maintaining the Same System with New Faces
Would you Reap Grape from Thistle?!
President Kais Saied activated Chapter 80 of the constitution, according to his interpretation, after preparing the internal situation and receiving external support. He suspended the Parliament and lifted the immunity of its members, dismissed the prime minister, and took control of the government with the help of the security forces and the army.
In view of these developments, we in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Tunisia state the following:
1- What President Kais Saied has done confirms that democracy, elections, and the support of the international community are a big lie. As achieving the goals of the revolution cannot be under the supervision and consent of the West, and within its mechanisms and civilization project, but rather by severing the relationship with the Western democratic system and its local tools, and establishing a righteous rule based on Islam.
2- The goal of President Kais Saied and those behind him from the Western powers is to liquidate the remnants of the Tunisian revolution and its achievements, even if they were formal. As for the political class that was formed after 14 January 2011, everyone realizes that it betrayed the goals of the revolution when it removed Islam from power and reproduced the capitalist system itself, against which the people revolted.
3- The political, economic and humanitarian crises that Tunisia is experiencing will not be resolved by the dictatorship of Kais Saied nor the democracy of Parliament, both of which are employees of Western departments, and their primary role is to fight Islam and take care of the interests of the West and its looting companies, and the Ummah will reap nothing but misery and despair from their rule.
O People in Tunisia:
Focusing on the corruption of politicians and their allies without talking about the corruption of the democratic capitalist system is a malicious Western attempt to direct the people’s anger towards the people in power, so that the Western system stays away from accountability and questioning, so the Ummah remains in a closed circle, one time they occupy it with elections and at another with coups, so they distract it from real productive change based on Islam. We in Hizb ut Tahrir renew our invitation to you to direct the arrows of your anger towards the capitalist system and its local guards, just as we renew our call to the sincere people of strength and prevention to hand over the rule to us in order to resume the Islamic way of life through the establishment of the second Khilafah Rashidah (Rightly Guided Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood, and carrying the Islamic call, the Muslims’ vital issue, to the World.
Allah (swt) says:
[وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسّكُمْ النَّار وَمَا لَكُمْ مِنْ دُون اللَّه مِنْ أَوْلِيَاء ثُمَّ لَا تُنْصَرُونَ]
“And do not incline toward those who do wrong, lest you be touched by the Fire, and you would not have other than Allah any protectors; then you would not be helped.” [Hud: 133].
