Hizb ut Tahrir’s Delegation in the German-speaking Countries Visit the Embassies of Jordan and Pakistan in Vienna and Deliver Two Letters of Protest
On Wednesday,12/9/2018, a delegation from Hizb ut Tahrir headed by the Media Representative of Hizb ut Tahrir in the German-speaking countries, Engineer Shakir Asim, visited the Jordanian Embassy and immediately afterwards the Pakistani Embassy to deliver the protest letters against the detention of our brothers and sisters. In Jordan, our brother, the engineer Isma'il Al-Wahwah (Abu Anas), an active Dawah Carrier at the international level, was arrested on arrival at the airport at the end of July 2018. He was arrested for no reason and without a judicial order. Abu Anas remains in prison to this day without any charges filed against him, and without a statement from the Jordanian regime regarding this procedure. This arbitrary detention occurred despite the fact that our brother suffers from high blood pressure and an incurable type of diabetes that he must undergo continuous treatment for.
For their part, the Pakistani regime, in the darkest of hours, arrested our sisters, Teacher Romana Hussein and Dr. Roshan. Sister Romana Hussein is a very active and respected teacher of Islam, in addition to being a lecturer of psychology and education and a mother of four children. She was arrested end of July 2018 in Karachi by the intelligence services because they found Hizb ut Tahrir books in her home. Two weeks later, the Pakistani regime arrested Dr. Roshan, a well-known doctor in all districts of Karachi for giving Islamic lectures and intensive lessons. This time the arrest was made without giving any reason. When her husband, a well-known doctor, asked them for the official arrest document, he was also arrested.
Although we attended the Jordanian Embassy at the main operating hours, one of the female staff told us that there was no official representative at the office – this was just before 10 am! The letter of protest was delivered to the female employee who promised to deliver it to the official authorities. At the Pakistani Embassy we were greeted by the Embassy Secretary and one of the staff members. We have presented Hizb ut Tahrir as a global political party whose ideology is Islam, which works with all its power to establish the Khilafah Rashida (Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood once again, and to remove the artificial boundaries established by the kafir colonists between the Islamic countries, and unite the Muslims in one state. We have explained that the party adheres to the Prophet's method (saw), and that it only carries out intellectual political, non-violent work. We have also affirmed that Islam is a comprehensive system of life, and we must implement all the rules of Allah in life and not just in prayer and fasting. We explained that Islam includes an economic system, a social system and its own system of government. And that the Islamic state is a Shariah ruling, founded since the establishment of the first Islamic state in Medina by the Prophet (saw) until it was demolished in 1924.
Then we discussed the situation in Pakistan. We mentioned that Islam is deeply rooted there, and that the establishment of Pakistan was based on Islam. How is it then that the Dawah carriers who are working sincerely for Islam are pursued and arrested there?! The two sisters, Romana Hussein and Dr. Roshan are not the only ones arrested by the regime. More than six years ago, the official spokesman of Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Pakistan, Brother Navid Butt, was kidnapped by intelligence agents, and no one knows his whereabouts. In the end, we warned the embassy representative of Pakistan from the continued submission to America and following the policy of this kafir colonial country that fights Islam and strives to tear apart and divide the Muslims; this in itself has caused great harm to Pakistan. The representatives of the Embassy assured us that our protest (letter) would be delivered to the official authorities in Pakistan. In addition to the protest letter, they requested other documents that we will try our best to bring them to the embassy.
In conclusion, we say that the persecution and detention of our members by the oppressive regimes in the Muslim world will only increase our determination to continue on our way, because their brutal attack that the Western colonial powers stand behind, on Hizb ut Tahrir, proves their intellectual defeat and that they cannot confront us except with violence and oppression. And the final conclusion is that the promise of Allah (swt) and glad-tiding of His Messenger (saw) of the establishment of the second Khilafah Rashida (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood will be achieved soon, Allah willing, even if the disbelievers hate it.
