London, UK, June 1 – Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, the Islamic political party, will launch a nationwide campaign tomorrow [June 2] to counter propaganda against Islam and the Khilafah [Caliphate] with the distribution at Friday prayers of over one hundred thousand copies of a new leaflet. The leaflet is entitled "Muslims in Britain must counter the propaganda against Islam and the Khilafah".
The leaflet explains the propaganda campaign waged against Islam and the Khilafah and exposes the relationship between western governments and the kings, dictators and despots of the Muslim world. It urges Muslims in Britain "to be a voice against the oppression" of Muslims and "to defend against the propaganda by presenting Islam and the Khilafah in its true light". The leaflet reminds Muslims of their responsibility to illustrate the message of Islam to the wider society so that non-Muslims "can look past the propaganda and see the beauty of Islam".
Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain also reminds the Muslim community that, "Despite the intimidation, lies and threats against Hizb ut-Tahrir, the party continues to work in Britain, like everywhere else in the world, through peaceful intellectual and political means to further the call for the Islamic Khilafah state."
Imran Waheed, a media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, "Those who work to change the corrupt rule of the kings, despots and dictators in the Muslim world with an Islamic State or Khilafah are labelled fundamentalists, extremists and even terrorists. Such propaganda aims to prevent the people of the world sensing the alternative that Islam and the Khilafah offers the Muslim world to the ongoing destructive policies of the governments in the West."
"We call on Muslims living in Britain to support the popular global movement for the return of the Islamic Khilafah and take every opportunity to expose the atrocities and crimes of the regimes of the Muslim world and their relationship with western governments. The Khilafah will work to free people from exploitation and oppression, will abolish dictators and torture and resist the tyranny of global capitalism."
