London UK, 5th July 2009 – Contrary to claims in today’s Sunday Times [British Islamists plot against Pakistan], it is the British and American governments that are plotting against Pakistan. Their disastrous intervention – in Afghanistan and then in Pakistan – has spread terror and killed many through continuous missile strikes and they have propped up the corrupt and despised Zardari regime in the name of democracy.
Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, “The real ones who ‘plot against Pakistan’ are those who allow its foreign policy to be dictated by the US State Department and the British Foreign Office, those who cede control of Pakistan’s economic resources to multinationals and those who allow Pakistan’s territory to be used by foreign armies for the vicious assault on Afghanistan.”
“The current system in Pakistan is inherently designed to secure the interests of the colonialists, regardless of whether the ruler is civilian or military, dictator or democrat.”
“Hizb ut-Tahrir does not ‘plot against Pakistan’ as sensationally claimed in today’s Sunday Times but is working to establish a government to save Pakistan from the terror and chaos that the US and the West have brought to Pakistan. Hizb ut-Tahrir works with the people of Pakistan to establish the Caliphate which will look after the affairs of the masses, rather than the interests of the colonialists and their surrogate regimes in the Muslim world.”
“This latest propaganda comes as Hizb ut-Tahrir has been spearheading the campaign in Pakistan to stop Muslim killing Muslim, when foreign powers have been stirring up sectarianism and violence.”
“The work and methodology of Hizb ut-Tahrir is well known. It engages in open political work with all levels of society, including with the media, scholars, thinkers, politicians and armed forces, to re-establish the Islamic Caliphate.”
“They can carry on with their lies and spin, it will not alter the fact that Hizb ut-Tahrir’s message is being embraced by the masses in the Muslim world who long for an end to instability and chaos.”
