Hizb ut-Tahrir condemns, in the strongest words, the brutal and cowardly assassination of Dr. Sarfaraz Naeemi. Dr. Sarfaraz Naeemi was bitterly against the American interference in this region and a few days ago in an interview to a private TV channel he severely condemned the government’s surrender to American dictates. After inflaming fires in Swat and Bannu, America and her agent Muslim rulers are pushing the whole of Pakistan towards instability and civil war.
The Swat operation has already been extended to other areas and according to the Minister of Information NWFP, about 4 million people have been made homeless. By these bomb blasts America on one hand is trying to defocus the masses from the miseries of the millions of homeless Muslims and on the other hand she is trying to embitter the relationship between Diobandi and Barelvi schools of thought in a bid to push the society towards sectarian violence. It is the same old policy which American adopted in an effort to instigate a clash between Shia and Sunni schools of thought and for this very purpose she conducted bomb blasts in Mosques and Imam Bargahs.
Recent blasts in Pakistan only serve American interests, the sole purpose of which is to get public support for continuing Malakand operation and extending it to Bannu and other areas. The Ummah has realised that there can be no peace and security in Pakistan unless America and her secret services are kicked out of the region. We demand from the leaders of all schools of thought and political parties that they should work to eject America, the source of all evil and instability, out of this region. The root cause of political and economic problems of Pakistan is America and this has only been made possible by our agent rulers.
We call upon the sincere elements present in the people of power (ahl an-Nusrah) that they fulfil their Shar’i obligation and withdraw their support for the American war as well as uproot these agent Muslim rulers and give Nusrah (material support) to Hizb ut-Tahrir so that the imperialist interference may be eradicated by the establishment of the Khilafah. And Muslims should be able to lead a peaceful and prosperous life under the shade of Islam.
