Sunday 29th May 2011 – Members of Hizb ut-Tahrir organised an event in the London borough of Newham titled: Remove Zardar-Gilani Government to stop American aggression. The event was attended by a cross section of the Pakistani community including local businessmen, doctors, students and professionals.
The event was chaired by Muhammed Tauhid and addressed by Mehboob Ali – from Hizb ut-Tahrir UK’s Paksitan Committee – and Rizwan Hussain from Slough.
Muhammed Tauhid in his opening remarks said the recent attack on the Mehran Karachi Navel Base, the American raid in Abbottabad and the release of Raymond Davis clearly violated Pakistan’s sovereignty and the treachery of Pakistan’s rulers allowed these serious violations to take place on Pakistan’s soil.
Rizwan Hussain detailed the treachery of Pakistan’s Government and stressed that the role of Muslims should be to seriously account the Pakistani politicians who visit the UK and to give support to Hizb ut Tahrir to establish the Khilafah in Pakistan.
Mehboob Ali stated that Pakistan should immediately withdraw from America’s War on Terror as it has severely destabilised and weakened Pakistan. He outlined Hizb ut-Tahrir’s political vision and programme for change in Pakistan and detailed a host of political actions that can be undertaken by Pakistani government, However he went on to say this would never happen as the government lacks political will and it is only Hizb ut-Tahrir that can bring about sincere leadership with the political will to rescue Pakistan. He ended his address by calling upon the Muslims to reject the corrupt politics offered by current Pakistani political parties and to work with Hizb ut Tahrir to establish the Khilafah state in Pakistan.
