London, UK, May 23 2007 – In response to the ongoing political crisis
in Pakistan that arose following the sacking of the Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court, Iftikhar Chaudhury, Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, the
Islamic political party, will participate in a demonstration and
delegation to the High Commission for Pakistan in London on Saturday
26th May 2007. The demonstration has been called by a broad coalition
of political organisations.
Dr Imran Waheed, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, said, "The leaders of Pakistan, be they civil or military, have placed every asset at the service of their American masters. Musharraf, like his predecessors, has ruined Pakistan. Musharraf has sold out over Kashmir, permitted American forces to establish bases in Pakistan, legitimised the occupation of Iraq, provided logistical support and intelligence to US forces in Afghanistan and surrendered control over Pakistan's economy to multinationals."
"Those who yearn for Pakistan's strategic assets to be used for the benefit of the Muslim world must now realise that this can never be accomplished through secular politics. The only way for the people of Pakistan to regain those assets and use them for the benefit of the Muslim world is to work for the re-establishment of the Caliphate. The Caliphate will produce leaders that are sincere to its own people and never surrender their assets to the imperialist powers."
"At Saturday's demonstration, Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain will call on the people of power and influence in Pakistan to liberate themselves and Pakistan from American hegemony by re-establishing the Caliphate, which will establish the rule of law and defend the separation of powers between the military, the executive and the judiciary."
Demonstrators will assemble at Marble Arch at 11.00 a.m. where they will be addressed by a range of thinkers, journalists, lawyers and politicians. At the conclusion of the demonstration, a delegation of representatives will deliver a letter to the High Commission for Pakistan (34-36 Lowndes Square , Knightsbridge , SW1X 9JN).
