Hizb ut-Tahrir strongly condemns the bomb blast in R.A. Bazaar, Lahore. Prior to every military operation, American and Pakistani government set off a series of bomb blasts to create public opinion in favor of the military operation and this series of bomb blasts continue till the end of the operation. This strategy was very apparent in Swat and South Waziristan military operations. None other than Obama himself disclosed this in December 2009 in these words; “In the past, there have been those in Pakistan who have argued that the struggle against extremism is not their fight…But in recent years, as innocents have been killed from Karachi to Islamabad…Public opinion has turned.”.
Moreover on First February 2010, General Kayani also discussed support of the media, public opinion and acceptance of the war as our wars instead of American war as three out of the five factors that were the basis of his strategy for the successful military operations in Swat and South Waziristan. The Pakistani government has clearly concluded that the military operations in the tribal areas from 2002-2004 were failed due to the lack of public support and the refusals of the Muslim army to slaughter their Muslim brothers. That is the reason why more than 200 officers and jawans had surrendered without fighting in Waziristan. It is for this very reason that America considered it necessary to “add” Indian factor in the tribal area so that the Pakistani army and public could fight this war wholeheartedly.
On the other side government permitted the mad dogs of blackwater and other secret American agencies to work openly in Pakistan and bite whomever they wish. It is blackwater who have conducted bomb blasts in Iraq and flown the rivers of blood there and is doing the same here in Pakistan now. The continues bomb blasts in Lahore are indicative of the imminent North Waziristan military operation in the near future, which has been a consistent US demand for quite some time. America has been imposing war on the Islam-loving people of the tribal area in the name of fighting militants; whereas, the militants always shift to a new area after every military operation, “instigating” the military to “follow” them, which consequently bring the area to ruin in the name of military operation.
We demand from the masses to stop the rulers from initiating a new wave of devastation on the tribal people. In agency to their American masters, the Pakistani rulers have brought nothing to Pakistan except chaos, ruin and devastation. Time has come for the people and those having the power to join Hizb ut-Tahrir in eradicating these rulers and expelling America from this region by the re-establishment of the Khilafah. Only this action can bring the lasting peace in the region.
