Foreign Direct Investment Cannot Develop an Independent Nation
The sharp rise in electricity bills highlights the dangers of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). No society can develop strongly and independently, on the basis of foreign companies and foreign capital. It is nothing but naive to think so. Pakistan will pay two trillion rupees next year in the name of capacity charges, out of which a huge amount will be paid to Chinese investors, under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) agreements. The vision of these rulers for the development of Pakistan is nothing more than obeying the dictates of the IMF, and selling the country’s assets to foreign investors and companies. It will be the Khilafah alone which will rule over us according to the Revelation of Allah ﷻ.

The Khilafah Will Secure Economic Development
O Muslims of Pakistan! Our rulers’ vision for the development of Pakistan is nothing more than obeying the dictates of the IMF, and selling the country’s assets to foreign investors and companies. It will be the Khilafah alone which will rule over us according to the Revelation of Allah (swt). The Khilafah will bring prosperity and development to the Muslim regions, through the implementation of the economic system of Islam. So, in your protests on the streets, demand the implementation of the system of Islam and the establishment of the Khilafah. Demand your sons in the Pakistan Army provide their Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood.

No Muslim is a “Foreigner,” Whether Afghan or Otherwise. Their Joys and Sorrows are Ours
The United States neither recognized the Afghan government, nor allowed any other country to recognize it. Thus Afghanistan’s population of around 40 million is dependent on neighboring Muslim countries. Strict enforcement of the borders will create a humanitarian tragedy for the Afghan Muslims, due to shortage of fuel, food and medicine. People will be forced to migrate. Stopping the delivery of essential, by closing the border to Afghan Muslims, is a betrayal of Allah ﷻ and His Messenger ﷺ. The only way forward for Pakistan is to reject the international order. The Muslims must unify the Muslim countries of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asia by establishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood. This step will strengthen the Muslims against the Hindu State as well.

The Investment by Muslim Countries is Not “Foreign”
In a meeting with businessmen, the army chief claimed that there is a possibility of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of 100 billion dollars in Pakistan from Arab countries, in the next few years. Regardless of any truth in this claim, the system of nation-states has fragmented Muslims. By dividing the Muslim world into nation-states, colonialism has turned investment and trade of a single Islamic Ummah into foreign relations. What Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC) does a businessman from Peshawar or Quetta need to do business in Karachi or Lahore today? When the Muslim world will be one state under the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood, the standard of living will be more or less the same throughout the state, due to free trade and shared resources.

The Muslims of Kashmir Eagerly Await the Roars of the Lions of the Pakistan Army
Posters with photos of Pakistan’s Army Chief appeared on the eve of 6 September, Defence Day, in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). The posters stated that the time is not far away when Kashmir will be liberated. The Muslims of Kashmir, our brothers, sisters, daughters and sons have shed enough of their blood to ignite the conscience of the Muslim officers and soldiers of the armed forces of Pakistan. Already too much time has been wasted on pinning hopes on the United Nations and the international community. Now it’s time to break the shackles of the international order, establish Khilafah in Pakistan, unify Afghanistan, Central Asia, and other Muslim regions within it, and liberate occupied Kashmir by erasing the Line of Control.

The Out Of The Box Solutions Are Those Implemented by the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood
On 4 September 2023, the Caretaker Prime Minister announced the search for out of the box solutions to provide relief to electricity consumers. However, he adheres to the capitalist system which caused electricity crises by allowing its private ownership. The only out of the box solution is to implement Islamic rulings regarding electricity. By ending privatization and entering power into public ownership, Islam has ensured that all the people benefit of its wealth and benefit, instead of a few private owners. The out of the box solution is to end interest payments, capacity payments, capitalist taxes and profits for private companies. This ensures that electricity is be available to everyone at cheap rates. It is only the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood which will implement out of the box solutions.

Islam Orders the Mobilization of the Army to Liberate Kashmir
The fate of the occupied lands of Muslims is neither decided by the resolutions of the United Nations, nor the aspirations of the people. Allah ﷻ has decided regarding occupied lands. Allah ﷻ says,
[وَقَاتِلُواْ فِیْ سَبِیْلِ اللّہِ الَّذِیْنَ یُقَاتِلُونَکُمْ]
“And fight in the way of Allah against those who fight you.” [Surah al-Baqarah: 190]. Allah ﷻ also said,
[وَأَخْرِجُوہُم مِّنْ حَیْثُ أَخْرَجُوکُمْ]
“Expel them from wherever they have expelled you.” [Surah al-Baqarah: 191]. The Shariah method to liberate Occupied Kashmir is fighting by those who are capable, the armed forces.
