 Press Release
Fighting Islam and the Eradication Tendency of the New Republic

Sadiq Belaid, who was appointed by President Kais Saied as coordinator of the National Consultative Commission for the preparation of a new constitution, has openly declared his vile hostility to Islam. In a flagrant defiance of the sentiments of Muslims in Tunisia, he brazenly declares that the new draft constitution will not stipulate that Islam is the state religion, as was the case in previous man-made constitutions. Bypassing his wicked masters in defiance of Islam and Muslims. We in the Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Tunisia explain the following:

1- The Commission has taken the approach of its peers from the committees that drafted previous man-made constitutions, by following the same approach, the approach of transgression and defiance to exclude Islam from the system of governance and legislation in the constitution and all other laws, as if the revolution was against Islam and its rules! While everyone realizes that the absence of Islam from the reality of life is the cause of misery and affliction, and that the Tunisian people demanded the overthrow of the bankrupt, modernist secular regime that was in power at the end of 2010.

2- The first chapter, which states that “Tunisia is a free state.... Islam is its religion...” did not depict Islam having an impact on the state and society. The constitutions of the modern state were and still are a war against Islam and its rulings. There is no difference between the 1959 constitution or the constitution 2014, or the decrees of President Kais Saied, all of which stem from man-made systems that rule by other than what Allah has revealed.

3- The abolition of the commission’s coordinator mentioning Islam as a formal reference for the state reveals the continuation of Tunisia’s rulers on the grim Western path that aims to satisfy France; that despises Islam and binds Tunisia to the tails of the colonizer.

4- Belaid revealed his deep-rooted hatred for every Islamic soul when he declared that the aim was to confront parties with an Islamic reference, not realizing, this failure, that the call of Muslims in their Islamic country to implement Islam is the natural and self-evident state recognized by sound minds. Those influenced by Western culture, are a state of emergency, dropped, are expelled by the Ummah, and their presence will be mopped away when it regains its authority and takes control of its command soon, Allah willing.

O Our People in Tunisia:

The war of these rulers against your Deen and your Islam has reached a great extent. After their insistence on excluding Islam from ruling and legislation, it has become your duty to confront this secular absurdity that targets your Islamic identity and way of living in accordance with the rules of Islam. Allah (swt) says:

(يُرِيدُونَ أَن يُطْفِئُواْ نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى اللهُ إِلَّا أَن يُتِمَّ نُورَهُ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ)

“They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it” [At-Tawba: 32].

The real and productive change can only take place on the basis of an Islamic constitution, taken from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Noble Messenger (saw), whose articles govern the distinguished political system in Islam, a system based on care, not on maneuvering and deception to reach positions. The Messenger (saw) said:

«فَالإِمَامُ رَاعٍ وَهُوَ مَسْؤُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ...» “The Imam (ruler) is a guardian and is responsible for his subjects.”

A constitution whose economic articles demonstrate how to take care of money affairs, i.e. economic policy, where Islam put the finger on the source of the disease in society and cures it. Allah (swt) says:

(كَيْ لَا يَكُونَ دُولَةً بَيْنَ الْأَغْنِيَاءِ مِنْكُمْ) “so that it will not be a perpetual distribution among the rich from among you” [Al-Hashr: 7].

It enacted rules that prevent the concentration of money in the hands of a small group in society, a constitution that defines foreign policy in a way that gives sovereignty to Islam and establishes a great state that brings together all Muslims, and carries the good to all humanity. Hizb ut Tahrir presents to you a draft constitution that is ready for implementation and has a solution to all crises, so work with it to put it into practice and implementation, for in that is the pleasure of your Lord and the happiness of this world and the Hereafter.
