Hizb ut-Tahrir to Hold Women’s March in the UK to Raise Plight of Women and Children of Syria
Hizb ut Tahrir to Hold a Vital Women’s March in the UK to Raise the Plight and Struggle of the Women and Children of Syria
On Sunday 22nd September 2013, Hizb ut Tahrir will be holding a large march in London to be attended by hundreds of women and children from across the UK in response to the horrific Ghouta massacre and to raise world attention to the ongoing horrendous plight of the women and children of Syria. The event is also aimed at increasing global awareness of the determined struggle of the women of Syria to replace their secular dictatorship with guardianship under the rule of Islam of the Khilafah for which they are sacrificing their lives and that of their families for. The march that has been organised under the title, “March for Sisters in Syria dying for Islam! Support their struggle for Bilad Ash Sham!” will be led by a procession of children and will end at the Syrian embassy where there will be a number of speeches. The event has been preceded by a robust international campaign highlighting the merciless, brutal war waged by the murderous Kufr Ba’athist Assad regime against the Muslims of Syria and its heartbreaking impact upon women and children.
Over the last two and a half years, the innocent women and children of Syria have been subjected to a living hell by the Syrian regime, including its countless massacres such as in Ghouta on the 21st August. Indeed, the regime is directly targeting the revolutionaries’ families, killing them in cold blood in their homes while their men are away from their towns fighting. Alongside all this, thousands of the honourable daughters of Ash-Sham have suffered the most gruesome forms of rape at the hands of the vile Assad forces. The women and children of Syria have been subjected to this horrendous campaign of brutality for calling for their tyrant ruler and oppressive secular system to be replaced with the rule of Islam, while the treacherous regimes of the Muslim world have watched on as idle spectators to this genocide, shamelessly refusing to mobilize the Muslim armies to protect their Ummah. However, it is a struggle that the courageous women of Syria are determined to continue until Bilad Al-Sham becomes the land of Islam under the shade of the Khilafah.
This campaign and march seeks to mobilise Muslim women to support the Islamic struggle of their sisters in Syria to establish with urgency the system of Allah (swt) in Syria and across the Muslim world. It will also voice strong opposition to Western intervention in the country which is aimed at crushing the struggle for Islamic governance in the region and installing their next client regime that will implement a Western secular system and serve their Western masters at the expense of the people, leading to another cycle of oppression for Syria’s women. The march will rather raise a strong call to the Muslim armies to rise and defend the blood and dignity of their sisters in Ash-Sham and to give their Nusrah for the Khilafah that will liberate this Ummah from its oppressors and establish security, dignity, and prosperity for its daughters. We urge all Muslim women to attend this vital march and express their solidarity and support with their sisters in Syria who are dying for Islam. ((وَإِنِ اسْتَنْصَرُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ فَعَلَيْكُمُ النَّصْرُ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ قَوْمٍ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَهُمْ مِيثَاقٌ ۗ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِير)) “And if they seek help of you for the religion, then you must help.” [Al-Anfal: 72]
