Hizb-ut-Tahrir calls upon the Muslims to remove the current leaders and re-establish the Khilafah before the Americans complete their occupation of the country
The American Congressional Research Service (CRS) recently published a report detailing the U.S. designs for Bangladesh. The title of report (dated April 01, 2010 and authored by specialist in Asian Affairs, Bruce Vaughn) is, ‘Bangladesh: Political and Strategic Developments and U.S. Interests.’ Besides mentioning American economic interests in the area of trade and energy sectors and the oft-repeated empty slogans of ‘strengthening democracy’ and ‘promoting development’ etc, the report highlights the key American policy objectives in Bangladesh as:
1. Using the country as a base for countering ‘terrorism’ and ‘extremist Islamists’;
2. Expanding military-to-military ties especially between US Pacific Command and Bangladesh Military; and
3. Making use of Bangladesh’s strategic location to achieve U.S. interests within the context of ‘shifting regional balance of power between India and China’.
This report is clear evidence, amongst many others, that Hizb-ut-Tahrir’s warnings to the people about America’s plans against the country is not a conspiracy theory. Rather the American vulture is openly declaring Bangladesh and the Muslims as her prey. It does not concern us that they are making plans against China, which in any case is not as malicious as their plans against the Muslims. They will not occupy China or commit mass murders against its people.
But the imperialist plan against the Muslims includes occupying and killing in order to prevent the rise of Islam as a political ideology and the return of the Khilafah. The recently retired UK armed forces chief and advisor to the new Prime Minister, General Richard Dannatt confessed to this in an interview to the BBC Radio 4. The General stated the objective behind the war in Afghanistan; he said "there is an Islamist agenda which if we don’t oppose it and face it off in Southern Afghanistan, or Afghanistan, or in South Asia, then frankly that influence will grow. It could well grow, and this is an important point, we could see it moving from South Asia to the Middle East to North Africa, and to the high water mark of the Islamic caliphate in the 14th, 15th century."
Crusader America and the imperialists are working to prevent this region encompassing Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Central Asia from becoming a starting point for the re-emergence of the Khilafah. This is the meaning of countering the so-called terrorism and extremism and the reason behind the military-to-military ties and their military’s presence in this region. And they are using their slavish agents, Karzai, Zardari-Gilani, and Hasina-Khaleda to implement their plans. These traitors are facilitating the American occupation of this region on the one hand and at the same time harassing and imprisoning the members and activists of Hizb-ut-Tahrir for exposing the plans of their American masters.
Hizb-ut-Tahrir in Bangladesh calls upon the Muslims to join with the party in a unified struggle to resist the American plans. The party also calls upon the Muslims to detach themselves from the current agent leaders, Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia. The party calls upon the Muslim Army of Bangladesh to refuse the orders of the government to cooperate with the military of the American enemy. Furthermore the party calls upon them to remove this government and re-establish the Khilafah before the Americans complete their occupation of the country.
