When the State Practices Violence Against Women
The Ministry of Women, Family and the Elderly is launching a systematic campaign for which it chose the slogan "Resisting Violence against Women", through which it promotes that the application of Basic Law No. 58 dated 11/8/2017, is the only guarantor for putting in place measures to eliminate all forms of violence against women.
The Ministry of Women considers, from an explicitly gender agenda point of view, that violence against women is based on gender discrimination, and it seeks to achieve full equality between the sexes, even if this contradicts the rules of Islam on the grounds that they contradict the respect of human dignity.
We in the Women’s Section in the Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Tunisia exert every effort to expose such poisons that the Tunisian state has been spreading among members of society, especially legislative ones, because of their danger to women in particular and the Muslim family and society in general. Our view is that the violence experienced by women is the one that the state practices over them through hybrid legislation and the Western lifestyle that it wants to impose on them by force. Whether by imposing laws deduced from Western international agreements such as CEDAW and the Istanbul Convention, or imposing Western ideas that are alien to our belief, such as homosexuality, nudity, promiscuity and adultery, and attack against a woman’s natural instinct.
In perpetuating violence against Muslim women, the regime and its institutions seek to deprive them of the care of their fathers, brothers, and husbands in the name of equality, freedom from paternal or masculine authority, their loss of good upbringing, good relations and protection, and forcing them to pay nafaqa (alimony) equal to men. The regime also did not fail to seek to impoverish them and exploit them as cheap labour for international and local capital under the pretext of empowering them economically, which is the same economic abuse that they are talking about! In addition to squandering their rights to the huge wealth owned by Tunisia and handing it over on a golden platter to the looting Western companies.
After all this violence perpetrated by the state against Muslim women, it lectures us about protecting them from their families. The reality is that the laws of the system and the lifestyle it imposes are the source of the conflicts that tear the family apart and make women miserable.
We consider that what they call the law against violence against women is nothing but exploitation of women and trading in their issues, to satisfy the desires of the West, and to implement agreements that Tunisia has signed since the era of Bourguiba, in the context of seeking to create a stereotypical society that reproduces the Western societal model, with all its social and moral ailments that are alien to our Islamic civilization within the framework of transgression on the Islamic legislation that united the Muslim family and ensured its happiness and defined the duties of both men and women as Allah created and wanted.
Therefore, we call upon Muslims in the land of Al-Zaytoonah to reject these laws, which threaten the Muslim family, the building block of society, its pillar and the basis of its revival, as they aim to create conflicts between members of the same family, for which Islam has made the basis of their relationship kindness, love and mercy.
Allah (swt) says:
[وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجاً لِّتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ]
“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquility in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought” [Ar-Rum: 21].
