Sheikh Hasina, to improve her Government and Party’s faltering public image, has launched a so-called purging operation against corruption and anomaly inside her party, and as part of this a crackdown is going on against illegal casinos at Dhaka’s various sporting clubs. Some leaders of Jubo League (sister organization of the ruling Awami League) were arrested allegedly linked with illegal casino businesses.
These crackdowns were started in a situation when strings of unprecedented corruptions in various government projects shook the country:
in a power plant, each pillow cost Taka 6000;
in a government hospital, each bedcover in the ICU cost Taka 3.75 million;
each corrugated tin-sheet - Taka 1 hundred thousand;
in a railway project, each sign board cost Taka 5 hundred thousand;
stamp seals cost Taka 3 hundred thousand;
the salary of a cleaner is Taka 4 hundred thousand!
Indeed, the so-called development projects of Hasina are nothing but new tools of unprecedented looting! It is known to all, that the Hasina regime and everyone in her crony group is engrossed in deep corruption. The anger and resentment of the people has reached the condition of a volcano just before its explosion. In such circumstance, Hasina has craftily staged this ‘melodrama’ to cover-up her mega-corruption by starting the so-called purging drive against corruption to deceive people, whereby a few minor leaders of ruling party sister organizations are made villains by labeling them as intruders or parasites, so that Hasina can get an exemption from her misrule and clear her corrupted image and becomes a Hero in this drama.
O Muslims! What better can be expected from a deceitful ruler like Hasina? Her father, whom she claims to be “Father of the Nation”, similarly blamed others to clear his corrupted image: “Everyone gets gold mine after a country’s liberation, whereas I have got a mine of thieves!! Thieves on my left, thieves on my right, thieves on my back, thieves on my front, thieves and thieves…!!” Whereas during the famine soon after the liberation war, his two sons were married wearing gold crowns, just when thousands of people were dying in hunger!
Is it not natural that the parasites and lackeys will grow under Hasina’s so-called secular democratic rule? Is it not natural that the corruption and anomaly, drugs and casinos will be widespread under secular democratic rule? Because, this secular system gives rulers the legislative authority instead of Allah (swt), and as a result corrupted and greedy individuals are attracted to politics so that they can legislate law and use power to serve their evil interest of acquiring huge wealth and protect their wealth, such as the interests of the loan defaulters and bank-looters were served using the parliament. And this sovereign power made this ruling class as giant tree, under which shelter parasitical groups grew. So, we need to remove Hasina and her source of sovereign power i.e. secular democratic system, only then corruption and anomaly will be stopped, parasitical class will be destroyed, and society will be rescued from drugs and casinos along with all fahisha and munkar. Allah (swt) says about the rulers like Hasina:
[وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَآ أنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ فَأُوْلَـٰئِكَ هُمُ ٱلظَّالِمُونَ]
“And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are wrongdoers.” [Surah Al-Maidah: 45]
O Muslims! Corruption by rulers can only effectively be dealt with under the Khilafah State (Caliphate). In the Khilafah, the Khaleefah cannot make laws and the Shariah has already determined how the State will collect and spend its resources. This means that corrupt individuals find no attraction or incentive in coming to power because rulers in Islam do not make laws - they just implement the laws already determined in the Quran and Sunnah. Secondly, Islam has mandated that the wealth of the ruler is determined before he assumes power and when he leaves power. Any abnormal increase in the wealth of the rulers is confiscated as ‘Maal al-Gulul’ and put in the Baitul Maal (State Treasury). When Omar (ra.) was Khaleefah (Caliph), he used to determine the assets of the governors before and after they held office; and if he found they had extra wealth, he would confiscate their wealth and put the confiscated share into the State Treasury. Many similar incidents of accountability can be found in the history of 1400 years rule of the Khilafah State.
Therefore, O Muslims! Do not be deceived any more by the current corrupted ruling class, and set the re-establishment of the Khilafah Rashidah as your only political goal and vision. To rescue Bangladesh along with the rest of the Muslim world from the menace of corruption, to build a corruption-free nation, join in the political struggle of re-establishing Khilafah on the way of Prophethood under the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir.
Allah (swt) says:
[وَقُلْ جَاءَ الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا]
“And say, Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart" [Surah Al-Isra: 81].
