Blears Message to Muslims: Change your values, Ignore Foreign Policy and Obey the State

In a speech today at the London School of Economics, Communities Secretary Hazel Blears confirmed the government's latest tactics in its strategy for Muslims to adopt a British version of Islam.

The speech hurriedly followed leaked drafts of a revised counter-terrorism strategy called Contest-2, which clearly indicated the government's definition of extremism: to support the call for a Caliphate in the Muslim world; to support the Islamic Shariah; to believe that Jihad to fight against invasion and occupation is legitimate; to believe that homosexuality is a sin.

Responding to the speech Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, "In this speech, Blear's has confirmed the government's working definition of ‘extremism' and that its Prevent strategy in Muslim communities is little more than an attempt to control them in order to force a values change in Muslim communities and silence our criticism of Britain's colonial foreign policy."

"However, there are some more specific points in her speech which are worth addressing."

"Firstly, Blears has presented a policy similar to that of the RAND corporation report ‘Civil Democratic Islam' dividing Muslims into categories of extremism. The government will - for the time being - engage with all organisations bar those that advocate violence. She leaves doubt about those who have Islamic social and political views that conflict with liberalism saying she is working to oppose their views even if she has to presently work with them, until such time that secular liberal voices are empowered and established by the state."

"Secondly, she exposes once again the agenda of coercive assimilation - that Muslims should adopt western liberal values: they should celebrate the behaviour of western societies toward women, accept homosexuality and should be uncritical supporters of democracy. Moreover, they must abandon Islamic ideas such as support for a righteous Caliphate - a Khilafah "Caliphate" Rashida following the example of the Prophet (SAW)."

"Thirdly, she exposes the government's agenda to control mosques and community groups, and establish a compliant leadership through youth leadership programs. She cites ridiculous arguments about Imams being born abroad. Does she also plan to complain to the Church of England that the Archbishop of York and Bishop of Rochester were also born outside the UK? She plans to interfere in mosques in a way that is unprecedented for a state to interfere in religious institutions. In the eyes of objective observers, this only furthers the perception of weakness in liberal democracy, for this interference does not give the appearance of ‘freedom to worship' in Britain. Rather, it makes the British state look increasingly Stalinist and controlling in its viewpoint towards people's religious beliefs."

"Finally, Blears' speech is  fundamentally dishonest. On the one hand she calls for a nuanced understanding of the issues on the other, she peddles inaccuracies and innuendo about calls for the ‘supremacy of the Muslim people' and calls for a theocratic state in the UK. She so easily conflates resistance in the Muslim world with ‘terrorism'. She calls for an explanation of  how the ‘UK's foreign policy protects the safety and rights of Muslims elsewhere in the world', ignoring the deaths of over a million people in Iraq and Afghanistan and presents concern about this as a ‘sense of grievance'. She tries to silence debate on Palestine by blurring Muslims anti-Israel views with anti-Semitism. She once again peddles the idea that Muslim concerns about western foreign policy which started pre-9/11 somehow proves that peoples anger must be rooted in an inherently violent ideology, ignoring the 1991 Gulf war, the subsequent sanctions that killed half a million Iraqi children, the repeat bombings over a decade and the uncritical support of Israel's oppressive occupation on Palestine. All of these things show the dishonest nature of the debate by government Ministers."

"This agenda will not succeed, not least because of the inherent strength of the sublime Islamic values, but also due to the severe social, political and economic problems people see in ‘broken Britain' and because we believe people can see through the spin and appreciate the real policy beneath."

85 years without Khilafah lead to division, chaos, and stagnation. Now, change is in the air

Today marks 85 years since the colonialist agent Mustafa Kamal abolished the Islamic Khilafah "Caliphate" state. Since then, the Muslim Ummah has endured division, occupation, economic stagnation and foreign domination. However, thanks to Allah (swt), evidence points to an unstoppable momentum for change and a greater call for the Shariah, Islam, and Khilafah "Caliphate". 

Commenting on this important anniversary, Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, "Since 1924, we have ended up divided into more than fifty weak and insignificant states whose rulers have systematically colluded with colonial powers against their own people, as our brothers and sisters have been massacred in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and elsewhere. Without the Khilafah "Caliphate", we are without a shield, exposed to the most vicious colonialist attacks."

"However, things are changing across the Muslim world and the signs are there for all to see. The Ummah reacted as one to massacres in Gaza, calling for the removal of the agent rulers and for Muslim armies to move and liberate Palestine. The Ummah can see the failure of global Capitalism as the financial crisis unleashes a disaster upon humanity. The Ummah has seen the false promises of ‘freedom and democracy' exposed in the prisons of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo."

"Having tried - and seen the failure - of dictatorship, socialism, democracy, monarchy, and nationalism, Muslims now increasingly yearn for the re-establishment of the systems of Islam under the righteous Khilafah "Caliphate". Alhamdulillah"

"Re-establishing the Khilafah "Caliphate" in the Muslim lands is a collective obligation on this Ummah. In addition to this, many can now see what the absence of this Islamic institution has meant. Without political unity of the Muslim lands under a new leadership, the complex and diverse problems that exist from the Atlantic coast of Morocco to the Pacific coast of Indonesia, are almost impossible to solve, viewed in isolation or through the outmoded prism of the nation state. It is an astonishing fact that the Muslim world possesses approximately 20% of the world's population, over 60% of the world's oil reserves and 55% of gas reserves, approximately 37% of the world's gold and forex reserves, and almost 25% of the world's defence personnel. Yet, weak, divided and colonised as it is, it possesses little political influence and has no leadership to harness these bountiful resources."

"The Khilafah "Caliphate" is the alternative to corruption and tyranny in the Muslim world and it is only the Khilafah "Caliphate" that can take power away from the feudal landowners and tyrant rulers, implement a real rule of law, produce economic prosperity for the many and not the few and ensure political decisions on the future of the Muslim world are made in places like Cairo, Istanbul and Islamabad, not London or Washington."

"It is time we work to re-establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" which will unify the Muslim lands and answer the cries of the Palestinian, Iraqi, Somali and Kashmiri mothers. It is time the winds of change blowing across the region, carrying with them the ideas of Khilafah "Caliphate", Shariah and Islam, become a reality that blows away the suffocation of the past nine decades."

Then there will be a rightly-guided Khilafah "Caliphate" upon the ways of the Prophethood (Musnad Ahmad)

  • Published in Asia
  •   |  

Hizb ut-Tahrir Wilayah of  Pakistan held a book launching ceremony of its manifesto in Lahore. The title of the booklet is 'Pakistan, Khilafah "Caliphate" and the unification of the Muslim world'. Speaking at the occasion the spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir Pakistan, Mr. Naveed Butt said that for the past fifty years Hizb ut-Tahrir is working for the reestablishment of the Khilafah "Caliphate" and has emerged as the single largest Islamic political party of the world.

He said that the Hizb has published a huge number of books, booklets and leaflets in the past to eliminate the misconceptions and confusions in the Ummah related to the systems implemented in the Khilafah "Caliphate" State, and today's launch of the manifesto-booklet is also a step in this direction. A chapter each is dedicated for ruling system, economic system, judicial system, social system, foreign policy, internal policy, education policy and media. 

Moreover a brief chapter is also added at the end which introduces the Hizb and its work. The book calls the Ummah towards the Shar'i obligation of establishing the Khilafah "Caliphate" in Pakistan as well as spreading it throughout the world. The manifesto is issued both in Urdu and English languages.

In reply to a question, Naveed Butt told the audience that according to Islam there can only be a single Islamic state i.e. the Khilafah "Caliphate" for all the Muslims and there is no room for 57 states of the Muslims based on the kufr concept of nationalism. He invited the Muslims of Pakistan to further increase their contact and discussions with Hizb ut-Tahrir in order to understand the system of Islam and how to implement it. Stalls related to ruling system, economic system, social system, judicial system, foreign policy and education policy were also on display that carried books, booklets and leaflets for the relevant system. Furthermore, there were stalls presenting the methodology as well as global activities of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Resist the Indian Plot to Destroy the Army-BDR and Protest against Government Inaction 

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The people of the country are angry and saddened by the horrific events of 25-26th February at the BDR headquarters especially the pre-planned and barbaric killings of more than a hundred military officers. Brutally murdering unarmed military officers and their families is an unforgivable crime. Mutilating dead bodies of officers; torturing and killing their wives and children including pregnant women; rape and burning dead bodies - all these inhumane acts were carried out by gang of Indian agents.    

Oh People! 

All of you are aware of the Indian plot to weaken and create divisions in the defence forces of Bangladesh. India and her local agents utilized the opportunity and current favourable moment to execute their conspiracy as they did many times in the past. The events have made it clear that the so-called mutiny was part of long-term plot and was carried out by India and her agents inside and outside the government. The mass killing of so many brilliant officers would only be of benefit to the polytheist enemy and her agents. Now they are blaming the killings on intelligence failure and so-called differences between the BDR and Army.  

An analysis of events of the two days clearly point out the mysterious role of the Awami League government.

  • Did the government not have any information of a conspiracy of this magnitude?
  • Why did the government send inexperienced ministers and MP's to negotiate with the rebels on such an important security issue who ensured the safety of the rebels only? Yet they did nothing to protect the lives, property and honour of the officers and their families.
  • Why did the ministers and MP's who were frequenting in and out of the BDR compound feel safe and secure to move amongst the rebels in such a hostile situation unaccompanied by any security personnel?
  • What was the purpose of the government in hurriedly declaring a general amnesty for the rebels without confirming the fate of the officers and their families?
  • Did the government not allow the criminals to effectively flee from the scene by declaring the amnesty; vacating the locality; and blacking out the entire area?

Oh People!

In the guise of various demands the conspirators have managed to completely destroy the BDR chain of command and are now scheming to separate the BDR from the military's command. This so-called demand is a threat to the security of the country. The sole beneficiary of separating the BDR from the army and creating divisions between the two forces will be the Indian enemy.  This demand is unacceptable and the defence forces of the country must remain under the command of the military.  

Oh People!

In this moment of crisis, Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh urges you to take the following steps:

  • Resist the conspiracy to destroy the army and BDR;
  • Take the government to task for its inaction and mysterious role in the conspiracy; and
  • Raise your voice for punishing the individuals involved in the conspiracy and the killings.

    And rush forward to re-establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" which will unite the people and strengthen the defence forces to resist all belligerent states including US, India, and Britain.

Pakistan's government provides bases for US Predator drone attacks against its own people  

London UK, 13 February 2009: US senator Dianne Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, commented on the Pakistani government's apparent opposition to the ongoing American airstrikes by Predator drones in Pakistan saying, "As I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base." Former U.S. intelligence officials confirmed that Feinstein's account is accurate.

Reacting to these statements, Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said:

"Senator Feinstein's admission has only confirmed what has long been an open secret that the ‘democratic' Pakistani government is actively co-operating with America's undeclared war on Pakistan to weaken and destroy the country, bringing death and destruction to its innocent civilians."

"More than 700,000 people have been displaced with hundreds killed in these indiscriminate American airstrikes. The UN is predicting that another 600,000 citizens are likely to be made homeless in continuing operations."

"President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani continue to deceive the nation by denying that they are facilitating these attacks. It is manifestly clear that in private the Pakistan regime is fully behind President Obama's policies and betrays its own people by providing full logistical support to the American killing machine. Not only has it provided bases inside Pakistan but it continues to permit the transportation of American and NATO weaponry - used to kill its own citizens - through Karachi port while supplying 80% of the fuel for the American war machine from Pakistani oil refineries."

"Today's statement clearly reveals the extent of the collusion with America. Such open treachery would be punished in any other state but has become the norm with such ‘democratic' governments in the Muslim world today. Only the establishment of the Khilafah "Caliphate" will stop the US plan to weaken Pakistan and ensure the safety and security of its citizens. The people of Pakistan must work with Hizb ut-Tahrir to liberate the country from this puppet government and establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" before this government brings the country to its knees."
