London 28th September 2010 – Protestors from across the UK will demonstrate in Birmingham this Saturday [12pm 2nd October 2010] at a rally organised by Pakistan’s former dictator Pervez Musharraf, as he aims to revive his political career by launching his ‘All Pakistan Muslim League’.
Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Britain said:”The purpose of our demonstration against Musharraf is clear: to expose a man who is no less a slave of America than Zardari who he seeks to replace. He is the man who sold Dr Aafia Siddiqui to the USA; the man who supported America’s war against the Muslims of Afghanistan; the man who did America’s bidding in Waziristan and the Lal Masjid; the man who fuelled bitter divisions within Pakistan; the man who allowed US security forces – the FBI, CIA, Blackwater-Xe and others – into Pakistan.”
“Unsurprisingly, Musharraf is being paraded to Birmingham’s Muslims by Khalid Mahmood MP who supported the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and draconian anti-terror laws”
“It seems that just as Musharraf did a deal with Benazir Bhutto to save his own political skin, and so allowed Asif Ali Zardari into power, he aims to fill Zardari’s shoes as the other’s political life is fast expiring, and so once again resume servitude to Washington and London.”
“For the last two years, Musharraf has lived a millionaire lifestyle in London, frequenting the luxurious restaurants and hotels, something unaffordable to most generals on a pension. Yet people are expected to think that he is somehow less corrupt than Zardari or Nawaz Sharif.”
“Pakistan does not need the same old recycled corrupt slaves of America and Britain – democrats and dictators alike – exploiting the people, neglecting their needs and oppressing them.”
“Pakistan needs a new leadership and new system: Pakistan needs Khilafat to save it from the likes of Zardari and Musharraf and offer the people a real change and real justice under Islam.”
