While Muslims of Kashmir Render Great Sacrifices, Regime and Opposition Play Out Democracy's Political Circus
On 17th October 2016, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief, Imran Khan, announced 2nd November 2016 as the new date for his proposed protest. “Currently, we are demanding of the Prime Minister [Nawaz Sharif] to resign or present himself for accountability [in the wake of Panama Papers revelations]. But if the government opts for torture or arrests or other unfair means then the PTI will make every effort to overthrow the current corrupt regime,” Imran Khan told a press conference at his Bani Gala residence. On 16th October 2016 while addressing a rally, Pakistan People Party's co-chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, said that if four demands of the party were not met, then PPP will initiate a protest long march against the government. "A new parliamentary national security committee should be formed… secondly, Pakistan Peoples Party's Panama Bill should be passed in the parliament," he said. On 14th October 2016, the Supreme Court accepted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) plea for early hearing of cases related to Panama Papers and fixed October 20 as hearing date.
There was a time when almost every political party wanted to show itself as the champion of Kashmir cause. However, now when the Muslims of Kashmir have once again made the issue of Kashmir dominant in the world headlines through their great and persistent sacrifices in the aftermath of the martyrdom of Burhan Wani on 8th July 2016, the political parties have ensnared themselves in Democracy's political circus, with the notable exception of Hizb ut Tahrir/ Wilayah Pakistan. Instead of forcing the Raheel-Nawaz regime to make every effort, including military operations, to liberate the Muslims of Kashmir, they have focused on issues such as the Panama Papers in the name of saving democracy or bringing real democracy. This unprincipled stance of the opposition parties has helped the Raheel-Nawaz regime to calm down the heated emotions of the Muslims of Pakistan with regard to the Muslims of Kashmir, even though they deeply desire to see their brothers and sisters liberated from brutal Indian occupation, even if they have to go for war.
There is no doubt that the Muslims of Pakistan have no love for or hope in democracy as the method to resolve their worldly matters. Whenever Muslims of Pakistan have been asked which system they would like to adopt if they are provided the opportunity, they always responded overwhelmingly in favour of Islam and the Khilafah "Caliphate" Rashida. The strong desire and love for Islam has put immense pressure on the traitors in the leadership, forcing them to make lip service for Islam such as when the Army Chief, General Raheel, claimed during his Defence Day speech of 6 September 2016 that ہمارا ہر قدم اللہ کے حکم اور نبی اکرم صلى الله عليه و سلم كی سیرت کے مطابق اٹھے“we took every step according to the Hukm of Allah and the Seerah of the noble Prophet (saaw)".
The then newly appointed US Ambassador to Pakistan, Richard Olson, in an interview with the BBC in December 2012 whilst brushing aside any safe bet on a future ‘political horse’ in Pakistan by saying that “Our horse is democracy”. He said so because it is democracy itself which safeguards American interests and exploit the Muslims of Pakistan regardless of the face that comes to rule. So in order to defuse pressure and divert the desire of the Muslims of Pakistan for the Khilafah "Caliphate" project, American agents in the political medium are trying their best to show that Democracy is the only viable option. So, no matter how important a matter arises which must be addressed at any cost according to Islam, they are presenting their struggle for democracy as a matter of life and death.
The Muslims of Pakistan must reject Democracy's political circus or so-called struggle for bring real Democracy as it rejects that sovereignty is for Allah (swt) alone. Muslims must also reject all those parties who deceive the people with the false dream of democracy to bring real change. Real change is only through establishing the Khilafah "Caliphate" on the Method of Prophethood and this is the thing which will safeguard the interests of Islam and Muslims. And also this is what frightens the West and America the most as Democracy is their horse, whilst the Khilafah "Caliphate" rules by all that Allah (swt) revealed.
