Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain Distributes Thousands of Fliers at Friday Prayers Launching Campaign Against Anti-Terror Laws
London, UK, November 4 – At mosques across the country today, over one hundred thousand Muslims received campaign literature from Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, an Islamic political party, as it launched its mass mobilisation campaign against the unjust and oppressive anti-terror laws currently being debated in the House of Commons.
Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain will be holding a major public meeting on Sunday 13th November 2005 at Friends Meeting House, London where the full impact of these proposed laws on community relations will be made clear. This will be followed by a country wide mass mobilisation of Muslims and non-Muslims to attend a major rally and march on Saturday 3rd December 2005 in central London. The campaign hopes to mobilise thousands of ordinary people including women and children, imams, community leaders, professionals and students to show the outrage with which these proposals have been received within the Muslim community.
Taji Mustafa, a media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said "These anti-terror laws will essentially be used to criminalise Muslims who speak out against the occupation of Iraq, Palestine and Kashmir and those who are working through non-violent political means to replace the dictatorial regimes of the Muslim world by an Islamic Caliphate State. Surely these laws will do more harm than good for community relations."
''They will also ensure that freedom of speech is only acceptable in Britain when one tows the government's foreign policy line, similar to the tyrannical regimes of the Muslim world who have silenced political dissent."
