Enough! End the US Presence in Pakistan, the Head of the Snake
Today, on the 16th December 2014, armed attackers struck the Army Public School and moved from classroom to classroom. It killed dozens, until it exceeded over a hundred, with most of them being children!
1. Hizb ut-Tahrir condemns this heinous crime for Allah (swt) said,
مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَى بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا
Because of that, We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.” [Surah al-Maida 5:32]
2. Hizb ut-Tahrir reminds the Muslims that such evil massacres are organised by the American intelligence to further its objectives in the region. Those who are informed of matters know well that the American intelligence has infiltrated the loose tribal networks many years ago. They incite the ignorant amongst them to turn their weapons away from the crusaders who occupy Afghanistan and onto their Muslim brethren.
Barbaric acts such as the killing of children are the direct outcome of the American foreign policy, specifically the policies of low intensity conflict and covert, “black” operations. The covert operations are an established American ploy, practiced by its intelligence and private military all over the world. This is to burn countries in the fires of confusion and insecurity.
These barabaric acts are then used by the regime and its masters as a justification for low intensity conflict. In the case of Pakistan, this is by military operations in the tribal areas, which the Americans need desperately to prevent resistance to their faltering occupation of Afghanistan.
3. Hizb ut-Tahrir directs the tribal Muslims, those who are sincerely fighting against the US occupation in Afghanistan, that they must denounce such massacres. They must not allow the oppressor to speak on their behalf who is ignorant of Islam, such that he furthers the American plan through his disobedience of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw).
It is a duty upon you to prevent such massacres that only benefits America and turns Muslim against Muslim.
RasulAllah (saw) said,انْصُرْ أَخَاكَ ظَالِمًا أَوْ مَظْلُومًا ”Support your brother, oppressed or the oppressor.” They said: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ هَذَا نَنْصُرُهُ مَظْلُومًا فَكَيْفَ نَنْصُرُهُ ظَالِمًا“O Messenger of Allah, supporting the oppressed is understood, but how can we support the oppressor. He said, تَأْخُذُ فَوْقَ يَدَيْهِ “Seize his hands to prevent him.” [Bukhari].
4. Hizb ut-Tahrir condemns the regime for allowing the US to exist on our soil and organise such attacks. On the one hand the regime claims that we are fighting American agents through operations in the tribal regions, yet on the other it allows a huge American presence on our soil to perpetrate its evil designs. This is even when the traitorous rulers catch American spies, such as Raymond Davis and Eugene Joel Cox, who they promptly release. This blatant contradiction is because the regime cares neither for us, nor our Deen nor the commands of our Lord, Allah (swt).
Our suffering and immense losses, in terms of lives and property, are a direct consequence of the regime making alliance with our enemies, showing affection to them, extending them sanctuary and provisions within our country and providing them an upper hand over us by which to strike us.
Allah (swt) said
يَا أَ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لاَ تَتَّخِذُوا عَدُوِّي وَعَدُوَّكُمْ أَوْلِيَاءَ تُلْقُونَ إِلَيْهِمْ بِالْمَوَدَّةِ وَقَدْ كَفَرُوا بِمَا جَاءَكُمْ مِنْ الْحَقِّ
“O you who believe! Choose not My enemies who are your enemies as friends showing them affection even when they disbelieve in that truth that has come to you [Surah Mumtahina 60:1]
5. Hizb ut-Tahrir calls upon the sincere within the armed forces that it is you who hold the physical capability to put matters straight according to the command of Allah (swt).
Cut the head of the snake and purify Pakistan of all American presence.
Close the American Embassy and Consulates, which are fortresses in all but name.
Expel the enemies that roam the country and contacts people and spend dollars as they please
Expel the US diplomats including its ambassador, as well as the US private military and intelligence operatives.
And know that these matters will only be practically realised once you extend the Nussrah to Hizb ut-Tahrir for the return of the Khilafah to these lands of Pakistan, the Pure, the Good.
