97 Years ago on the 28th of Rajab, the traitor Mustafa Kamal obeyed the demands of his British masters by abolishing the Ottoman Khilafah. This plot against the Muslim Ummah to establish a secular nationalist state on the ashes of the Islamic State, was the beginning of a century of Turkish leaders’ betrayal and service to Western colonial interests. Today Erdogan obeys his American masters to hand Syria back to the butcher Assad, in complicity with the murderer and his Russian and Iranian backers.
In 1949, the Turkish rulers officially recognised the Zionist occupation of Palestine. Despite President Tayyib Erdogan’s deceptive words, he is strengthening the economic and military ties with the illegal occupation by the day. His government recently called for a tripling in annual trade with the Zionist criminal state. All the while the aggression of the occupiers against the Palestinian Muslims increases, as we are witnessing today.
This is the reality of the Turkish secular state, whose role is to protect the colonialist’s interests in our lands, defending and strengthening our enemies who murder us in Syria and Palestine.
On the 27th of Rajab, Saturday 14th April, Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain will be holding a demonstration outside the Turkish Embassy in London to expose the treacherous nature of the Turkish regime.
We call upon Muslims to join us to STAND, STRUGGLE AND SACRIFICE FOR PALESTINE.
27th Rajab is the night when the Prophet (saw) went on the night journey to al-Aqsa, as Allah says:
سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَى بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلًا مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الْأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ
“Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al- Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing.” [Al-Isra: 1]
The land of Isra and Mi’raj is occupied by the Zionist regime who is constantly harming and spilling the blood of the Muslims. The rulers in the Muslim lands collaborate and conspire in the Zionist entity’s massacres. While in Palestine the brave people are raising their voices to speak out and protest against the illegal occupation, as they are mercilessly killed by the Zionist regime.
Almost a century since the Khilafah was destroyed and the Muslim lands occupied, we call upon the Muslim Ummah to bring back its shield, the Khilafah on the way of Prophethood. Unlike the current traitorous rulers, it alone will use the Ummah’s vast economic and military resources to end the oppression in Palestine and be a shining light to humanity, to guide them out of the darkness that they currently endure.
The Prophet (saw) said:
“…تكون خلافة على منهاج نبوة”
“…Then there will be a Khilafah [Caliphate] Rashidah according to the way of prophethood.”
The demonstration will start at 2pm opposite the Turkish Embassy at 43 Belgrave Square London SW1X 8PA.
