On the 28th of Rajab 1430 Hizb ut-Tahrir Indonesia convened an unprecedented gathering of thousands of ulama, and ustadhs from all over the Muslim world, pledging their support for the re-establishment of the Islamic Khilafah "Caliphate" state. Ulama from Indonesia, Malaysia, Lebanon, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Turkey, Palestine and Algeria were amongst those who attended the gathering of over 10,000 Muslims in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh organized a rally on 10th July 2009 after Jummah prayers outside the national mosque on ‘28th Rajab: Destruction of the Khilafah "Caliphate" - Demand Re-establishment of the Khilafah "Caliphate".' When members and supporters of the party gathered to hold the rally, the police obstructed them. For about half an hour the police conjured up contradictory and flimsy grounds to prevent the rally and finally dispersed the people.
Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh organized a rally today after Jummah prayers outside the national mosque on ‘28th Rajab: Destruction of the Khilafah "Caliphate" - Demand Re-establishment of the Khilafah "Caliphate".'

For about half an hour the police conjured up contradictory and flimsy grounds to prevent the rally and finally dispersed the people.
In a press release issued in reaction to the police action, Chief Coordinator and Official Spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh Mohiuddin Ahmed said by consistently preventing Hizb ut-Tahrir from holding its activities, the government is behaving as if it is on the payroll of the imperialists to prevent the call for Khilafah "Caliphate". The government, so-called representatives of democracy, has proven its stance against Islam by preventing the Muslims from calling to Islam. However they will fail to suppress the call for the Khilafah "Caliphate" in a country of 150 million Muslims and they will be rejected by the people similar to Karzai, Musharraf and Maliki.
Mohiuddin Ahmed said the Khilafah "Caliphate" state will protect the life, wealth and honour of the Muslims and will bring them out from their sufferings and misery. The current capitalist system only secures the benefit of few capitalists and the ruling classes. Just few days ago we saw the cabinet approve law to provide life long security arrangements for the family and relatives of Sheikh Hasina. On other hand, a few days before that we witnessed how the government ordered the police to brutally attack the people who protested against Tipaimukh damn which will endanger the lives of millions of people. We also witnessed few months back how the government stood by while the army officers were being massacred in Pilkhana and when Hizb ut-Tahrir protested they brutally attacked our members and activists.
The Khilafah "Caliphate" state was abolished on 28 Rajab 1342 AH (03 March 1924 CE) as a result of the imperialist conspiracy headed by Britain who used her agents in the conspiracy especially Mustafa Kamal, may Allah (swt) curse him. Since the destruction of the Khilafah "Caliphate" the Muslim Ummah has been facing severe catastrophes in politics, economics, military, social and cultural aspects. Muhammad (saw) said the similitude of the Ummah is like one body; however without the Khilafah "Caliphate" they are divided into 57 parts and each part is controlled by disbelievers and polytheists. The Ummah suffers from poverty despite possessing huge resources. The rulers in the Muslim world are busy serving US-Britain-Israel and India. They are giving away Ummah's resources to the capitalist multinational companies for free.
Re-establishing the Khilafah "Caliphate" is an obligation upon the neck of every Muslim. Allah (swt) says,
".....And rule among them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires
diverging away from the truth that has come to you...." [TMQ Al-Ma'idah: 48]. The Khilafah "Caliphate" is the government system which rules by what Allah (swt) has revealed. The Khalifah is the leadership for all Muslims over the globe and he implements the Qur'an and Sunnah.
The Khilafah "Caliphate" will unite the Muslims, and take control over the Ummah's resources from the imperialist companies. It will resist the political, economic, military, social and cultural aggression of the imperialists; and transform the Muslim Ummah into the leading nation in the fields of ideology, science, technology, economics and military.
The return of the Khilafah "Caliphate" is near and inevitable. The Muslim Ummah is raising her voice to rescue herself from secularism and democracy and establish Islam in the state. At the same time the leading capitalist states' economic and military might is waning; and their agents in the Muslim world are already isolated from the people. Allah (swt) says, ".....Certainly, the Help of Allah is near." [TMQ Al-Baqarah: 214]
Finally Mohiuddin Ahmed urged the people to pledge to re-establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" and invited them to join Hizb ut-Tahrir's National Rajab Conference entitled ‘Khilafah "Caliphate" for Bangladesh' to be held on 21 July 2009 at the Engineer's Institution, Dhaka.
