Osman Bakhach (Hizb ut-Tahrir’s Central Media Office) and others debate the people’s revolution in Tunisia and the overthrow of Ben Ali.
The writing has long been on the Wall for all the dictatorial regimes in the Muslim World. It took the Twitter generation to lead the Charge!
No doubt they were inspired by the behaviour of Western media outlets, who taught the younsters how to organise mass revolt against certain regimes, when the election results turn out contrary to the plotting of the West.
The ‘Genie’ is definitely out of the bottle.
Why the Tunisian demonstrators are still there in the streets when tyrant has already fled? There must be more to it that people want to see the solution to their worsening situation shackled by the secular tyrant for 23 years. The dictators of the Arab world saw their friend flee and are feeling the political downfall as the believers are watching their brothers taking stand for not dissimilar worsening plight of the people throughout the Arab world.
Muslim world is brutalised by the despot tyrants of many a guise truly slave to their ex-colonial masters instead of Allah (swt) who join hands with offer of wealth and power to stop the surge for re-establishment of the Khilafah, they once fought against.
Assalamu ‘alaikum my brothers!
I have a question… Why is it that HT does not take this opportunity of the Tunisian Revolution to start revolutions across the world? =)
Assalamu alaikum brother and thank you for your question.
Ever since the regime of Ben Ali collapsed, Hizb ut-Tahrir has been working to show the Ummah that it needs real change and the Khilafah system, not artificial change. We have attended demonstration with our other brothers and sisters in Tunisia. Over the years, we have argued that the Muslim rulers might oppress the Ummah as much as they want but that Allah (swt) has promised the Ummah change.
Events in Tunisia have given hope to the ummah everywhere and now is a very good opportunity as the momentum for change is gaining ground, however, this is a delicate matter as foreign powers and the former regime are trying to hijack the people’s efforts.
Our brothers and sisters in Tunisia, Pakistan, Indonesia, Yemen, Bangladesh and elsewhere are active on the ground and we continue our work to raise awareness about the need for the Khilafah system in the Muslim world. We ask others to join us in this and to make dua for the return of the Khilafah soon insha Allah. Wassalam
What really brings the Muslims together and unites them as one community (Ummah) is resuming the Islamic way of life in a rightly guided Caliphate (Khilaafatur Raashidah) State, governed by a Caliph (Khaleefah), which would tear down the colonialist borders of malicious Sykes-Picot, and unite the Muslims throughout the regions of the Land of Islaam under the shade of a Muslim Caliph (Khaleefah). This would be the true unity of the global Muslim community at large (Ummah). By Allaah, I see it coming sooner than we think. It amazes how Allaah (SWT) unfolds events; He (SWT) does it like no one else.
