Today Hizb ut-Tahrir conducted press conferences in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. Lahore press conference was addressed by the spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Pakistan Naveed Butt whilst Hizb’s deputy spokesmen Shahzad Shaikh and Imran Yousafzai addressed the conferences in Karachi and Lahore respectively.
They said that Pakistan is faced by unprecedented dangers as a result of the collaboration of the agent rulers with America. American intelligence and private military organizations are conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations throughout the country, whilst through “strategic dialogue” with America, the agent rulers are conducting a war of fitna in the tribal areas, where Muslims face Muslims on the battlefield so that America may maintain its failing occupation in Afghanistan. After Jamia-e-Hafsa, Swat and South Waziristan operations government is conducting military operation in Orakzai Agency. Moreover this has been announced that the army will soon conduct operations in South Waziristan as well, something for which America has been putting pressure on Pakistan for quite some time. On the other hand the masses have been entangled with fake electricity crisis so that they may not resist America’s war of terror as well as Blackwater and DynCorp who are busy bombing civilians to produce chaos. Not only that to further push Pakistan into American clutches these rulers have ruined Pakistan’s economy and thrown the masses into the quagmire of poverty, hunger, inflation and electricity shortage. They said that the two years of this democratic government has proven the fact that Democray and dictatorship are two sides of the same coin which the America uses one after the other. Enough is enough! There remains no excuse for the apologists. Whoever ignores the treachery of these rulers also shares the burden of their crime. RasulAllah صلى الله عليه و سلم said:
إنَّ النَّاسَ إَذا رَأوُا الظَّالِمَ فَلمْ يَأْخُذُوا عَلى يَدَيْهِ أوْشَكَ أن يَعُمَّهُمُ اللَّهُ بعِقَاب
“If the people witness an oppressor and they do not take him by his hands (to prevent him) then it is near that Allah will cover them all with punishment.”
[Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]
They said that the time has come that the People of Power rescue 180 million Muslims of Pakistan from this dire situation. They announced that on Sunday 9 May 2010, Hizb ut-Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan will issue a bold declaration to the People of Power in Pakistan at the Islamabad Press Club, Islamabad, Pakistan before the media which will have solution to Pakistan’s problems. They called upon the media that it should fulfill its responsibility to convey this declaration to the People of Power in the best possible way.
