Hizb ut-Tahrir Round Table: Bangladesh – Progress or Entrapment
Friday 21st September 2007
London, UK, 21st September 2007 – Over 35 senior members from the the media, political parties and other organisations attended a roundtable discussion entitled "Bangladesh: Progress or Entrapment" organised by Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain. The discussion focussed on the current political crisis in Bangladesh and the ongoing foreign political intervention in the country.
The key speaker, Mujibul Islam, highlighted that Bangladesh has always
been under the control of foreign powers since its formation in 1971.
He emphasised that the last two governments were heavily influenced by
foreign colonial objectives and the current interim government is no
different. The recent political turmoil is once again indicative of
foreign agendas which aim to mass privatise; enriching foreign
companies rather than the Bangladsehi citizens.
Muslims must be aware and concerned about the disastrous political and
economic direction the country is heading towards. This concern must
translate into the desire to protect the interests of the Bangladeshi
people, which can only be achieved with the implementation of a Khilfah
Mujibul Islam commented that the citizens of Bangladesh must realise
that the past, present and current inevitable political instability has
been caused by foreign powers whose aims are to usurp the country’s
resources and enrich upcoming neighbouring superpowers, namely India.
It is only the Khilafah that can bring stability and economic progress
in Bangladesh and any other solution must be rejected by the people as
they have a history of failure.
