Oppressive Bangladeshi govt banned HT due to our work for Khilafah & support for the defense forces
The defense forces and the people of the country are clear about the involvement of Indian agents within the government behind the massacre of army officers in Pilkhana on February 25th of this year. Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh protested at that time against the conspiracy to destroy the defense forces of the country and stood by their side. Hizb ut-Tahrir successfully exposed to the people and defense forces the involvement of India and the government behind the massacre. The government arrested 31 members and activists of the party and since then they have undertaken fascist repressive measures against the party. It has been eight months since the brutal inhumane massacre and the government is yet to take any proper steps towards bringing to justice and punishing the conspirators. On the contrary they have been dismissing army officers who protested against the government and now the government has decided to ban Hizb ut-Tahrir for exposing the government’s hand behind the plot.
Chief Coordinator and Official Spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh Mohiuddin Ahmed made the above statement in a press release issued today. Mohiuddin Ahmed also said Hizb ut-Tahrir has been exposing US-Indian-British designs regarding Bangladesh. The party has been consistently mobilizing people against anti-Islamic and anti-people decisions and treaties such as US military presence in the country, TIFA, transit etc. It needs no mentioning that the current government is a result of compromise with US-India-Britain. The decision to ban Hizb ut-Tahrir is a signal of a deeper US-India-British conspiracy against the country.
Mohiuddin Ahmed said for the past 10 years Hizb ut-Tahrir has been working in Bangladesh in a nonviolent way according to the Qur’an and Sunnah to present Islam as a political ideology and to reestablish the Khilafah. As a result the call for Khilafah has grown strong and gained momentum among the Muslims of Bangladesh. The imperialist dominated secular democratic system (led by the government and the BNP alliance) has failed the people of the country. As a result of the sincere and dedicated work of Hizb ut-Tahrir the Muslims have come to realize that their liberation is not possible through the agent rulers and corrupt system. The disbelieving polytheist states fear the return of Islam as a political ideology. Therefore they and the government have become restless and fearful due to the intellectual-political work of Hizb ut-Tahrir through which the party has managed to successfully present Islam as a political ideology to the Ummah and strengthen the work for the Khilafah in the country.
The Home Minister and the Home Secretary alleged that the reason for banning Hizb ut-Tahrir is that the party represents a danger to public security. This is nothing but a mockery. It is well know to everyone with awareness that Hizb ut-Tahrir is a global Islamic political party which operates intellectually and politically in all Islamic lands with the aim of re-establishing the Islamic Khilafah. The party has adopted its method of establishing the Khilafah from the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammad (saw), which is the non-violent political and intellectual struggle in the society so that the Muslim Ummah strongly embraces the Islamic Aqeedah; makes Islam the center of her thoughts and emotions and practices Islam in her life.
Mohiuddin Ahmed said the enemies of Islam all over the world have not succeeded in silencing Hizb ut-Tahrir by banning and repression. Instead the party has become the voice of the Muslim Ummah and hundreds of thousands of Muslims are uniting with Hiz b ut-Tahrir to liberate the Ummah. The party will continue its struggle together with the Ummah. Allah willing the Khilafah will be reestablished and the disbelieving imperialists will not succeed in their plans. Allah (swt) says,
