 News Right Now: Deep Mistrust

Welcome to News Right Now, Deep Mistrust

Sunday 19th of December, staged protests erupted in Khartoum, Sudan- the ninth large scale demonstration since the army led by the top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan declared a state of emergency, dissolved the interim government, arrested the civilian leadership and seized power earlier this year on October 25th in its’ view to rectify the transition as factional infighting and splits deepened. On the anniversary of the 2018 burning of a governing party building which sparked a popular uprising that led to the overthrow of President Omar al-Bashir who had ruled for 30 years, some protesters managed to reach the gates of the presidential palace. The protest organisers called on more people to join a planned sit-in there after sundown.

Footage documented protestors remaining in the sit-in were met with tear gas and stun grenades from security forces resulting in hundreds of injuries and reports of at least one fatality confirmed by an independent medical group. America and its agents in the leadership of the army: Al-Burhan and his aides, and Europe, especially Britain, in the ministry of Hamdok and his brothers, are struggling to win control and dominance over Sudan and its people to suck its wealth and seize its location and resources.

Following the October 25th takeover al Burhan announced a new civilian-military ruling council in which he kept his position as head, along with a powerful paramilitary commander, three senior military figures, three ex-rebel leaders and one civilian. Demonstrations have continued even after the civilian Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok (an economist for the UN) was reinstated last month due to increasing pressure from the international community, with some protesters demanding full civilian rule and no further military involvement at all in government in a transition towards ‘free elections’.

However, the agreement reinstating Hamdok angered other protesters, who had seen him as a symbol of resistance to military rule and perceived his reinstatement as a betrayal. The agreement faces significant opposition from key stakeholders which will create obstacles in forming a government and the establishment of transitional institutions.

The agreement stipulates the formulation of a political declaration with potential constitutional amendments, and proposes the formation of a “technocratic cabinet”. Sudan’s military and political leaders are primarily faced with having to rebuild trust with their own domestic public, particularly with the young and educated but unemployed generation and take steps to regain financial, economic, and political support from the international community which has been withheld as result of the coup.

Like many revolts in the Arab world, Sudan’s was initially viewed eagerly and with hope. The Sudanese people are well versed in calling for revolutions however recent events have created increasing restlessness and mistrust amongst the people. Sliding back into their past with a new set of faces is not seen as an option but perhaps inevitable. In Egypt, the neighbor with which Sudan shares the closest history, the result was a new military-led government and economy. Many here see Sudan going the same way.

Sudan remains in a state of emergency, and the treasury is less than two months from running out of reserves, current and former government officials recently told Bloomberg News and the Reuters news agency.

The Muslim lands have become a stage for the colonial Kuffar, who are more lethal towards Islam and its people, to compete over their lands, then they find tools for themselves from the sons of the Muslims who hold their hands in support, as if they do not comprehend.

(هُمُ الْعَدُوُّ فَاحْذَرْهُمْ قَاتَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ)

“They are the enemy, so beware of them. May Allah destroy them; how can they be deluded from the truth?” [TMQ Al-Munafiqun: 4].

And those who are loyal to them from among the rulers in Muslim lands, it is not permissible to be dependent on them, and they are unjust and immoral.

(وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنْصَرُونَ)

“And do not be inclined to the wrongdoers or you will be touched by the Fire. For then you would have no protectors other than Allah, nor would you be helped.” [TMQ Hud: 113].

We do not refer to the heedlessness of its people, but rather to the lack of insight of those who control their necks, whether it is Burhan or Hamdok, without being ashamed before Allah (swt), neither before His Messenger (saw) nor before His servants, but rather rushing to what paves the way for them to disgrace in the life of this world and the Hereafter, and that is the greatest disgrace.

There is no salvation, security or safety for you except under the Islamic system; the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood. It is neither civilian rule nor military rule which will bring a decent life, so work to restore it, on the method of the Prophethood, for by Allah, it is an obligation from your Lord, the source of your glory, and the protector of your blood and money.

(يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ)

“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life.” [Al-Anfal: 24].
