Hizb ut-Tahrir Campaign against UK-US deal to save dictator of Pakistan
London, UK, September 7, 2007 – At mosques across the country today, tens of thousands of Muslims received leaflets from Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, entitled ‘The Musharraf-Bhutto pact: Britain and America’s desperate attempt to save Pakistan’s Dictator’. It outlines Britain and America’s role in trying to save Musharraf, the treachery of Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif, and the need for a root and branch change of the system in Pakistan to the Islamic Khilafah system in order to arrest the current state of political chaos.
At a time when Musharraf’s political life is hanging by a thread, the leaflet exposes the moves of the British and American government’s in throwing him a lifeline. It says that "All this dealing and doubling-dealing betrays a desperate attempt to prop up a failing regime, hated by its people but loved by governments in the west."
Commenting on the treacherous role of former Prime Ministers Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif, the leaflet says, "Only the most corrupt regime in Pakistan’s history that of Benazir Bhutto, could serve as a suitable ally for this dishonourable initiative. With them, Nawaz Sharif, who presided over the surrender of Kargil and who then begged for President Clinton to intervene, expects to be taken seriously again as a candidate for prime minister. This time around, however, the political face-lift is more dangerous to the Muslim character of the Pakistani masses than ever."
The leaflet concludes by calling on Muslims to "learn our own lesson. It is not sufficient to change from military leaders to political leaders without changing the underlying political system. It will not work now, nor has it ever worked in the past. Only with a comprehensive elimination of the current flawed systems in Pakistan and a replacement with the constitution, judiciary and systems of the Islamic Khilafah can the direction of Pakistan be comprehensively changed for the better."
"Hizb ut-Tahrir invites you to join with it in continuing its struggle to expose the colonial policies of western governments in Pakistan and the Muslim world and create a positive public opinion about Islam as a way of life and the Khilafah as a new state and civilization that will free Pakistan and the Muslim world from chaos, instability and injustice."
