London, UK , July 30 2007 – Thousands of delegates will attend Hizb
ut-Tahrir Britain 's national Khilafah (caliphate) conference at
Alexandra Palace in London on Saturday 4th August 2007. The conference
is part of a month of global activities to revive the Caliphate system
of government in the Muslim world.
During the Islamic calendar month of Rajab, Hizb ut-Tahrir is holding activities across the globe to raise awareness for the Caliphate, explore the challenges faced by the Muslim world in the pursuit of unity and present the Caliphate as a solution to the global problems the world faces. These activities will culminate in the largest ever Khilafah conference in history on August 12th 2007 when 100,000 delegates attend a conference at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta , Indonesia .
Dr Imran Waheed, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, said, "Our message to the Muslim community in Britain is aimed to reinforce the massive popularity for this political institution in the Muslim world, and to illustrate how we, whilst based so far away, can contribute to the debates currently raging about governance in the Muslim world. Islam through the restoration of the Caliphate in the Muslim world, far from being a cause of world chaos, today stands as the one solution that can bring stability and justice to the world."
"Given the current climate of suspicion and fear we feel that now more than ever people need to try to understand these legitimate political aspirations for the Muslim world, rather than simply falling for the reductionist Manichean arguments that paints everyone who seeks Islamic change in the Muslim world as extremists or supporters of terrorism."
The conference will commence at 11 a.m. on Saturday 4th August 2007 and will end at 7.p.m. The venue is Alexandra Palace , Alexandra Palace Way, Wood Green, London , N22 7AY .
