Hizb ut-Tahrir demonstrated in Islamabad and Karachi against the massacre of Muslims in Gaza and the endorsement and criminal silence of the Muslim rulers over the issue
More than 300 Palestinians had been martyred in the worst air attacks of the last forty years by the terrorist state of Israel while close to thousand are wounded. And now Israel has completed the preparation for the ground assault. In protest against the silence adopted by the Muslim rulers in this horrible situation and their collusion with the Jews, Hizb ut-Tahrir demonstrated in Zero Point Islamabad and Tariq Road Karachi. A big number of protesters gathered against the criminal silence of the rulers’. They were holding the banners entitled "O Muslim Army! Move for the liberation of Muslim occupied land" and "O Zionist Jews! Get ready for defeat, Khilafah is close". In Islamabad, member of Hizb ut-Tahrir Junaid Khan while in Karachi Shahzad Sheikh, the deputy spokesman of the Hizb addressed the gatherings. Translating the emotions of the Ummah they said that Muslims rulers are actively assisting the Jews in the blockade of Gaza, at a time when Israel is spilling the blood of the Muslims, forcing Gaza Muslims to eat grass. They said that why would not this handful of Jews have the courage to transform the Gaza into a big jail and callously bombard them when the Muslim rulers themselves have engaged their troops into fighting Muslims instead of Jews. Thus, in fact, it is the Muslim rulers who are the first line of defense of the Kuffar especially the Jews. Protesters were calling for Muslim armies to help their Muslim brothers and raising slogans for the re-establishment of the Khilafah. Later they dispersed peacefully.
