Hizb ut-Tahrir protested in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi against the Swat military operation
Hizb ut-Tahrir organised big protest demonstrations in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi against the Swat military operation and strongly condemned this American war whose only fuel is the blood of Muslim soldiers and people of swat and making Muslim fight Muslim. In Islamabad member of HT Junaid Khan while in Lahore Muhammad Ali addressed the demos in front of the press clubs. In Karachi, Muhammad Khurram led the demo in Jehangir Park, Saddar Karachi. They said that the government has launched a massive and terrible operation on the pattern of lal masjid but much bigger in scale under American diktats, flattening villages after villages and collectively punishing the masses for the demand of Sharia. They said that the government, learning experience from the Lal masjid, used the media to strongly propagated against Islam, Sharia and those demanding Sharia in awful way as a prelude to military operation as they previously did in Lal masjid case and now resorted to artillery shelling on the civilian population, bombing from F-16 and firing from gun ship helicopters. Their homes, shops, markets are being destroyed and Ummah is being sidelined from the Afghan Jihad and are made to fight Muslims. They further said that more than 1. 2 million people have migrated whose majority do not turn to live in camps for the sake of pardah and honour. Thus Zardari, Gilani and Kiyani have created a big humanitarian calamity for the sake of America. They called all the political parties, ulema, madaris, media, lawyers, civil society, students and house women to stand up against the treachery of the government so that Ummah can get rid of this American war thus enabling the Muslim to fight only Kuffar. Later the participants dispersed peacefully.
