For Real Change... Reject democracy... Establish Khilafah.
Oh Allah, restore our shield, the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate)... Allahuma Ameen.

The Rulers of Muslims are the Protectors of the Jewish Entity
After the heroic action of the Egyptian soldier, Muhammad Salah, fear has spread amongst the Jewish troops. The “Jerusalem Post” reported on 10 June 2023, that the army of the Jews has shortened the shift hours for guarding the Egyptian border, after its soldiers refused long periods! The Jews are cowards and they depend on the rulers of the Muslims to restrain their armies. The Muslim officers must remove the rulers, establish Khilafah and march for the liberation of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa.

The Khilafah Will Establish Financing for Industry without Riba
The meeting between the Chinese Charge’d Affairs and the Finance Minister on 12 June 2023 highlights the continuous dependence on Chinese interest-based loans. The current leadership makes interest payments, that are larger than the budget deficit. It then takes more loans on interest, increasing debt. The Khilafah will abolish riba and manage the economy according to Islam. It will generate large revenues from supervising the public property of energy and minerals. It will also dominate large-scale capital-intensive industry, so that it can take care of public needs effectively.

The Khilafah Will Not Need Oil and Gas from States that Fight Islam
On 12 June 2023, the Law Minister declared that, “Pakistan looks forward to cooperation in energy with Russia". Energy security is not achieved through securing cheap energy from anti-Muslim powers. It is also not secured by swapping dollars with roubles for international trade. The Muslim World will have energy security when the Muslim Lands and their abundant energy resources are unified under a single Khilafah state. The Khaleefah will then use the revenues earned from the sale of oil and gas for looking after all the citizens.

The Khilafah Will Secure Local Jobs for Our Educated Youth
According to Gallup Pakistan and PRIDE, 23.6% of all unemployed urban youth in the Sindh province hold a university degree. It is clear that the state has no vision for rapid industrialization, providing jobs for educated youth. The current global capitalist economic order does not allow us to fulfill our local needs through local industrial production. Under the Khilafah, the economic system of Islam wwill provide effective economic laws. The Khilafah only rules by all that Allah ﷻ has revealed, so these laws will never be abolished.

The US Supports the Rise of India, Despite its War on Islam
On 15 June 2023, the Permanent Representative to the United Nations, declared, “To those who are ready today to open their doors to the Prime Minister of India, we urge that they call for a halt to India’s oppression and atrocities.” The US has already opened economic and military doors for India, so that it can confront China and Muslims. India’s economic growth has now accelerated to 6.1 percent in the January–to-March quarter. The Khilafah strengthens Muslims by implementing Islam and unifying the Ummah as one state. Allah ﷻ said,
[الَّذِينَ يَتَّخِذُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَيَبْتَغُونَ عِندَهُمُ الْعِزَّةَ فَإِنَّ الْعِزَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعًا]
“Those who take disbelievers for allies instead of believers, do they seek power with them? Verily, then to Allah belongs all power.” [Surah An-Nisa'a 4:139].

The IMF Demands Taxation is Increased so Pakistan Pays Interest on Loans
On 16 June 2023, the Ministry of Finance addressed the concern of the IMF regarding broadening of the tax base. The IMF demands that taxation is continuously increased, to pay interest payments. Taxation was over 1 trillion rupees in 2009, 2 trillion rupees in 2014, 4 trillion rupees in 2019 and now, for 2024, it is over 9 trillion rupees. The solution to Pakistan’s financial crisis is to abolish riba (interest). The Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood will reject the demands of the IMF and spend on the Shariah obligations. Allah ﷻ said,
[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَذَرُوا مَا بَقِيَ مِنَ الرِّبَا إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ * فَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلُوا فَأْذَنُوا بِحَرْبٍ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ]
“O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah and give up what remains (due to you) from Riba (from now onward), if you are (really) believers. And if you do not do it, then take a notice of war from Allah ﷻ and His Messenger ﷺ.” [TMQ Surah al-Baqarah 2:279]

Under Capitalism, Pakistan Will Never Escape the Debt Trap
The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) announced on 16 June that it has received $1 billion from China. In 1971, Pakistan’s debt was 30 billion rupees, but by 1991, it rose to 825 billion rupees. By 2011, Pakistan’s debt was 10 trillion rupees and now it is approaching 60 trillion rupees. Interest payments ensure Pakistan falls deeper into the debt trap. The Khilafah will abolish riba. Allah ﷻ said,
[الَّذِينَ يَأْكُلُونَ الرِّبَا لَا يَقُومُونَ إِلَّا كَمَا يَقُومُ الَّذِي يَتَخَبَّطُهُ الشَّيْطَانُ مِنَ الْمَسِّ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَالُوا إِنَّمَا الْبَيْعُ مِثْلُ الرِّبَا وَأَحَلَّ اللَّهُ الْبَيْعَ وَحَرَّمَ الرِّبَا]
“Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as the one stands and who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, “Trade is [just] like interest.” But Allah ﷻ has permitted trade and has forbidden interest.” [Surah al-Baqarah 2:275]. The Khilafah will generate large revenues through supervising energy and minerals, as well as establishing substantial heavy industry.
