Pakistan is beset by crises.
Floods have devastated the north and west. Thousands have been killed and millions have been made homeless. The threat of disease is impending. This is on top of the existing poverty and hardship for ordinary people.
Security is utterly compromised. There is now an Indian threat on western frontier as well as the east. American drones continue to bomb Pakistan, killing civilians. US security agencies are allowed to create terror on Pakistan’s streets, and India stokes militancy and sectarianism in Baluchistan.
A Diplomatic vacuum exists, as Western governments can slander Pakistan, claiming it is the source of all terror, whilst neglecting the fact that there was no terror in Pakistan until the NATO invasion destabilized the region. They use this propaganda to pressure Pakistan to continue to sacrifice its troops and citizens for Western interests, and to continue to allow the US to use bases and fuel for the attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The causes of these crises are many.
Incompetent government, whether democratic or dictatorship, successive regimes have failed to address peoples problems. Whether flood, or earthquake, or education, poverty these politicians do not show any care for ordinary people. How can it be that a country that has a history of flooding fails to have effective flood management plans after sixty years?
Slavery to Western interests: Democrats and dictators alike have allowed western politicians – like David Cameron – to slap their faces, creating propaganda against Pakistan and Islam without challenge, and then kiss the hand that slaps them. They pursue policies that have made Pakistan insecure by supporting the invasion of Afghanistan, moving troops away from the eastern frontier with India to the west. They have spent $30 billion on America’s war on terror and ruined the economy by pursuing harsh policies dictated by the IMF and World Bank.
Corrupt government: Democrats and dictators alike have robbed the wealth of the country and put the interests of their own elite above every one else. Zardari, who is arguably the most corrupt of all the corrupt politicians (and there are many), has left a country in crisis to enjoy the comfort of the west, in a way that no self respecting leader who cared for his citizens would. He has come on a lavish trip to promote his son as his successor, without any sense of shame.
There is only one solution Pakistan needs. It has tried democracy and dictatorship: the Zardari-Bhutto dynasty, Musharraf and the military, Nawaz Sharif etc have all been disgraced in office. It urgently needs a new leadership and new system
Pakistan needs Khilafat:
· An Islamic government to look after the affairs of the people
· A Shield to defend the security of the state
· An Independent government that is not a slave or punch bag for others
· An Accountable government with an independent judiciary to ensure integrity in leaders.
Hizb ut-Tahrir in Britain has organised a demonstration to demand the removal of Zardari and his cronies for their betrayal of the people of Pakistan and their unwavering support for the UK and US governments. The time has come for sincere people in Pakistan to re-establish the Islamic Khilafah state to replace these rulers – a government that will have an independent policy, that will not be a slave to the west and which will look after the affairs of the people.
WE ASK YOU ALL TO SUPPORT THE CALL TO OUST ZARDARI AND ESTABLISH KHILAFAT
