London, UK, March 16 2009 – People woke this morning to the public humiliation of Prime Minister Gilani announcing that he and President Zardari had decided to restore Chief Justice Iftikhar Chauhdry and the other deposed judges. Despite the words of Gilani, everyone knows that the PPP leadership has done its level best to avoid their restoration.
It is ironic that Nawaz Sharif who is today portraying himself as the champion of the Chief Justice is the same man that led a self-imposed war against the Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah who opposed his restoration to power in 1993.
Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, “The treachery of the government and politicians of Pakistan is clear to see from their silence or support for America’s undeclared war on Pakistan in which the country is being regularly bombed and innocent civilians killed. While Zardari-Gilani have been cheerleaders for America’s undeclared war on Pakistan, PML-N and the Sharif brothers, who until recently were part of the government, have been silent about the Pakistani government’s policy of supplying the US with bases on Pakistani soil for drone attacks, supply of fuel for the American army used in attacks against Pakistan and the supply of US and NATO weapons through the port of Karachi.”
“These politicians talk of representation and the ‘charter of democracy’, but are not even independent of foreign control and do not work against the foreign wolves at Pakistan’s door! The fact is that Pakistan will never find a solution to its problems through the ‘charter of democracy’, compromised political parties or the failed democratic political system.“
“Today’s humiliation of the government shows that the spirit of those that created Pakistan in the name of Islam is still present in people, and that they are able to bring real change that can again lift the name of Islam and become an example for western countries – whose ideology is failing.”
“The people of Pakistan must use this spirit to work with Hizb ut-Tahrir to establish a new leadership and a new system – the Khilafah system. That is the only path for independence and true progress.”
“The Muslims of Britain must work with Hizb ut-Tahrir to help bring this change in Pakistan and to expose the false western propaganda against Pakistan, Islam and Muslims in the West.”
