Hizb ut Tahrir/ Wilayah Sudan warns the Government against bringing its Members to Collective Trials that will Blame the Innocent along with the Guilty
The ruling regime in Khartoum continues to hold members of Hizb ut Tahrir who are detained in the detention centers of Kalakala and North Khartoum, under the custody of Headquarters of Intelligence and Security Services, without being brought to trial or released, under the excuse of completing investigations. This is despite the fact that more than five days have passed since their detainment, and what is being investigated is still unknown?! Members distributed a leaflet from Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Sudan titled: "The Rise in Fuel Prices...Yet Another Step to Crush the Poor People and the Manufacture of More Poverty", They admitted to distributing the leaflet, and it is stamped with the signature of Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Sudan.
If the leaflet constitutes a crime, then why not go to trial directly from the first day?! Their remaining presence in custody is in itself a punishment, and a grave injustice. It has been brought to our attention that the authorities, on the background of murder, looting, plundering and the ravaging of public and private property undertaken by hired hands, intend to submit our members amidst others to collective trials, which will incriminate the innocent along with the guilty. Is there any oppression uglier than that?!
We in Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Sudan warn the government against the consequences of going forward with this step. If our members are guilty, then they should go to just trials individually, for it is not acceptable to punish a person for the crimes of another. Allah Almighty (swt) says:
(أَلا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَى )
"That no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another"
We also demand the government to present all the sons of this Ummah who were detained during the protests to just trials, so that no one shall be punished without a crime, nor for the crime of his brother. The crime committed should be proven individually, or else the government should release them if they only went out and protested; rejecting the oppression of the regime. This is a right assured even by the government's secular constitution. Allah Almighty says:
(يَا أَيُهَا الَّرِيهَ آمَنُىا لِّمَ تَقُىلُّىنَ مَا لا تَفْعَلُىنَ *كَبُسَ مَقْتًا عِنْدَ الّلَهِ أَنْ تَقُىلُّىا مَا لا تَفْعَلُىنَ )
"O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do? Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do."
Judiciary in the Islamic State; the Righteous Khilafah "Caliphate" state; which Hizb ut Tahrir with and amongst the Ummah works to establish, is the compulsory notification of the Hukm Shari', which takes place in the Judicial Council, after both sides are heard. Allah's (swt) Messenger said:
«إذا جلس إليك الخصمان فلا تكلَّم حتى تسمع من الآخر كما سمعت من الأول»
"If two people come to ask you to judge between them, do not speak until you hear from the second one like you heard from the first one."
