  Hizb ut-Tahrir Indonesia Condems Uzbekistan Rulers' Tyranny

      The tyranny of the dictator President Karimov still continues. Hizbut Tahrir's leader In Uzbekistan informed that in early February four members of Hizbut Tahrir died; two in Jasliq's Jail and one in Andijan, and one in Farghana. Though the government attributed their death to heart attack but many people believed that they died as martyrs due to a very cruel torture carried out by prison officials as well as lot of deaths before.

Not only that, the administration of Jaslik prison also randomly increased the prison terms of other members whose sentence was nearing its end. One member, Shukrullah, was given sixteen more years, whilst another, Shaukat, was given another three, and both were transferred to an ex-offenders prison.

At other prisons such as Navoi, prison administrations have started giving prisoners from the members of Hizb ut-Tahrir medications and forcing them to take it in front of prison guards. These medications have ‘made in America' written on them and they resemble bread dough in their colour and form. It has been noted by prisoners that whoever takes this medication more than once begins to lose their strength and sensorial ability day-by-day. From among these prisoners are those who have memorized the noble Qur'an, While in their long stay in prison.

 It has also been noted that many prisoners go beyond simply losing strength and sensorial ability, and lose their sanity. They are then transferred to state-run hospitals.

HT's leader in Uzbekistan has sought to obtain a paste that they called "medicine", either directly or through relatives who visited the detainees. But it did not work, because prison officials searched very carefully every person who visits and out of prison.

Regarding the tyranny above, Hizbut Tahrir in Indonesia:

  • 1. Condemn strongly the Uzbekistan government's atrocities committed against its people, particularly against members of HT. It is really remarkable tyranny that should not be done by a ruler to his people as his primary obligation is to protect and love his people.
  • 2. Demand the Uzbekistan rulers to stop the tyranny and free all members of HT in Uzbekistan from the jail. Hizb ut-Tahrir in Uzbekistan as Hizbut Tahrir in other countries is Islamic party struggling with non violence principle. They struggle for goodness of people in that country and all mankind in the world through the enforcement of sharia and the caliphate. Therefore, members of Hizbut Tahrir wherever they are should not be treated by the authorities as if they have committed an extraordinary crime. Surely only evil rulers treat their people with such cruel tyranny. Hizbut Tahrir warns Islam Karimove and his government and all tyrant rulers that Allah accounts every tyranny and dictatorship now or later in the Hereafter.
  • 3. HT in Uzbekistan and wherever in all countries with help of Allah SWT will not be weak against Tyranny. They will remain steadfast on the truth and strengthen patience till help of Allah come.


إِناَّ لَنَنْصُرُ رُسُلَناَ وَالَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوْا فيِ اْلحيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيَوْمَ يَقُوْمُ اْلأَشْهَادُ

Verily We help Our Messengers and those who believe in the life of the world and on the day of the founding of the witnesses (the Day of Resurrection)"

(Quran Surah Al-Mu `min [40]: 51)
