Press Release
Army Undertakes a Coup against so-called Imaginary Democracy

Yesterday evening on Wednesday 03/07/2013, General Abdul Fattah As-Sisi, Minister of Defence and Military Production, announced what he called the 'Future Map' for the country. The map includes the temporary obedience of the constitution, the dismissal of the elected president, holding of early presidential elections, provision for the head of the Constitutional Court to run the affairs of the country throughout the transitional period and until a new President is elected, and for the head of the Constitutional High Court to have the right to issue constitutional declarations throughout the transitional period. And he indicated that a government of 'National Competencies' would be formed. In addition to a committee that would look into all of the suggested constitutional alterations and an appeal to the Constitutional High Court to decide upon a law for parliamentary elections.

That way the army will have overthrown the supposed democracy that came with Mursi as the 'legitimate ruler' for the country, as they claimed. And this coup occurred under the pretext that the refusal of the general leadership of the ‘abuse to the national and religious institutions of the State' in addition to the: 'intimidation and threatening of sections of the citizens'. So where are they positioned in respect to that Democracy that they have so often played lip service to? And especially after the closure of Islamic television channels, arresting and hunting down hundreds from amongst the main figures from the Islamic wing?

And from this, it has been shown without doubt that those who hold the real and effective power throughout the last period is the army and that the President and his group represented no more than a puppet that was moved by the military establishment, and from behind is the head of Kufr America as they want. It has also proved that it is not possible for Islam to reach the ruling via this democracy and its ballot boxes within its secular system. It is as if they did not learn from what happened to the Islamic Salvation Front in Algeria and it is hoped that now and finally the callers to this methodology will consider and fully realise this reality.

America has exploited the bitter resentment of the Ummah to the callers of what they call 'Moderate Islam' to distort the image of Islam to the public by displaying their failure of managing the nation's affairs. And this is despite the fact that they did not implement Islam and did not hold the actual authority in the land. So they used them for their benefit and then gave them this description leaving in their wake a notion of fleeing away from the rule of the 'Islamists,' which affected a section from amongst the people.

So it is necessary for the Muslims to know that there is only one way to establish the rule of Islam. This is the path that the Messenger of Allah (saw) treaded with the refusal to assume the ruling that was deficient or the participation in a corrupt system in violation to Islam. Rather the patience until the Nusrah is complete with the continuous work within the Ummah to generate a public opinion based on a general awareness of the obligation to implement the Shar'a of Allah completely in the Khilafah "Caliphate" State. This will happen by engaging in an intellectual struggle by presenting strong challenging Islamic thoughts to challenge the thoughts of Kufr (disbelief), just as the Messenger of Allah (saw) did, not by  through its diluting and simplification. Political struggle is also required in addition to exposing the plans and conspiracies that are being plotted against Islam and Muslims just as the Messenger of Allah (saw) proceeded and it will not happen by way of flattery and concurring with despots and agents of the Kufr West residing in our country from politicians, media personalities and those who claim to be thinkers. This will generate public opinion for the Khilafah "Caliphate" and the Shariah so that the sincere people from amongst the people of Nusrah (support) in the army can align themselves with this call. This is because they (the Army) are those who possess the real power as was proven by the declaration of Sisi however it is unfortunate that it gave its support to those who did not deserve it! And it abandoned those who had flattered them without having presented a real project that emanates from the Aqeedah (belief) of the Ummah.

We at Hizb ut Tahrir are the leader that does not lie to its people. We repeat the invitation to everyone who wants to see Islam established firmly in an actual Islamic State, the Khilafah "Caliphate" State, to join us and work with us to establish it in accordance to the methodology that the Messenger of Allah (saw) proceeded upon. This is because it is the only way that will truly free the people of Egypt and all of the Muslim lands, and indeed the whole world in its entirety from oppression, fighting, power-struggle and hatred against one another. People, Muslims and non-Muslims, will live under the shade of this state of goodness, the Khilafah "Caliphate" State that was the beacon of light for the earth, its blossoming flower and bright shining light for more than thirteen centuries.

Allah (swt) says:

[وَنُرِيدُ أَنْ نَمُنَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ اسْتُضْعِفُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَنَجْعَلَهُمْ أَئِمَّةً وَنَجْعَلَهُمُ الْوَارِثِينَ]

"We desired to show kindness to those who were oppressed in the land and to make them leaders and make them inheritors." [Al-Qasas: 28:5]
