Press Release
Hizb ut-Tahrir East Africa Sends Sincere Condolences Following The Capsizing Of The Ferry ‘Spice Islander'

Hizb ut-Tahrir East Africa received, with great grief and pain,  the news of MV Spice Islander's capsizing on the eve of 10/09/2011 in the Nungwi area between the Islands of Pemba and Zanzibar.  We stand hand in hand together with everyone affected, giving them our condolences over this calamity and advising them to be patient during this difficult period.

We are also announcing to the entire Islamic world of its obligation to intervene quickly to assist with life-saving evacuation and care for the bereaved families who have lost their beloved brothers who supported their families financially.

This accident is a further painful proof that the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar (SMZ) has completely failed in guaranteeing safe passage between Zanzibar and Pemba, and also a clear failure by all its relevant institutions to protect and evacuate passengers.

At the same time Hizb ut-Tahrir East Africa condoles the bereaved and sincerely advises them to show patience and forebearing.  We are clearly announcing to all that it is only the Islamic State, the Khilafah "Caliphate", that would display the true inner-conscience and innate virtue of protecting and saving the lives of all people.
