Democracy has failed with widespread disinterest in the coming elections. Even those who are still participating in voting are resigned to choosing the “least of the worst” from a pitiful choice. On the one hand, there are those who are skilled in corruption after decades of practice. On the other hand, there are those who claim to want to end corruption, but fill their ranks with the corrupt, claiming that only the corrupt are “electable”!
We are right to be disinterested, disappointed and disenchanted with Democracy. Democracy does not take care of our affairs, it is a tool for rulers to look after their own affairs at our cost. It is no surprise that those implement Democracy are the law-makers, deciding what is right and wrong, what is Halal and Haraam, in the hands of those elected so they can manipulate laws to secure their personal gains. That is why we have not seen a single clean man from the civilian and military rulers who have ruled by Democracy, whether Musharraf and Shaukat Aziz, Zardari and Kayani, or Nawaz and Raheel. And this is why we see today that the corrupt swarm around Democracy like flies to filth.
Whosoever wins the elections, our situation will worsen as has been the case with every term of Democracy. The corrupt rulers do not depend on our popular support but on the external support of the colonialists. Thus, our economy will be ravaged by the IMF and World Bank, plunging us into ever deepening debt and denying us the realization of our actual potential. Our foreign policy will be ruined by the US State Department, ensuring our continuing restraint and humiliation before India. Our military and intelligence affairs will be ravaged by the US Pentagon and CIA, exploiting our strength and influence to ensure the US military stays in Afghanistan. And our media and education policy will be polluted by UNESCO, poisoning our future generation with the misguidance of Western values.
O Muslims of Pakistan!
RasulAllah (saaw) warned us, «لَا يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ» “The believer is not stung from the same hole twice.” Democracy has failed and the ruling by the Quran and Sunnah is the need of the time. Certainly. nothing short of the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood will bring the change we need.
It is the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood alone that will ensure our security.
It will work to end all borders and divisions between Muslim Lands, unifying them as the world’s most resourceful state, with one treasury, one currency, one state language, one armed forces and one Khaleefah.
It will deal with the hostile states with a war stance, expelling their mischief making diplomats, intelligence and private military from our soil.
It will withdraw from the tools of the Western colonialists, the United Nations, the World Bank and the IMF and call upon all oppressed nations of the world to do the same.
Its armed forces will be mobilized to answer the cries of the oppressed whether in Palestine, Occupied Kashmir or Myanmar (Burma) decisively and without regard for Western double standards.
And it will be a welcoming, generous sanctuary for the worlds oppressed as it was for centuries before.
It is the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood that will ensure our prosperity.
It will prevent the private ownership of our immense energy and mineral reserves, which are valued to the order of hundreds of billions of dollars, because Islam has deemed this vast treasure as public property, whose entire benefit is for our needs.
It will end the widespread private ownership of capital intensive enterprises, such as heavy industry, large scale construction, transport and telecommunications, through abolishing the capitalist stock share company. This is because Islam mandated its own unique conditions and laws, that limit the scale of private ownership of capital intensive enterprises, allowing the state to dominate large scale sectors so that it is better able to look after our affairs.
It will end the choking of our needy and destitute with burdensome taxation that Shariah has forbidden, whilst filling the state treasury with funds from the unique Islamic set of revenues.
And it will end the taking of foreign loans upon interest, that ensure an ever deepening debt trap and crippling conditions, thereby smashing the begging bowl forever.
And it is the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood that will preserve and strengthen us in our Deen.
Its media and education policy will be established on the strong foundation of the Quran and Sunnah, in every book and every broadcast.
Its judiciary will not discriminate by gender, religion, citizens or worldly status, applying the law of Allah swt upon all, extracting the right of the weak from the oppressor.
And every law that is implemented must be based upon the Quran and Sunnah or the judiciary can declare it as an unjust act and dismiss the ruler responsible, without delay or recourse to appeal.
O Muslims of Pakistan!
Democracy has failed and it’s now time for all of us to work for the re-establishment of the Khilafah on the Method of the Prophethood with Hizb ut Tahrir. It is fully prepared for ruling by Islam, with a library of books that lay out the blue print of the Khilafah and legions of committed and aware men and women, stretching from Morocco in the West to Indonesia in the East, to lead us. And it is our duty to do so because ruling by Islam in all our affairs is not a choice, but an Obligation from Allah (swt). Allah (swt) has revealed,
((وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلاَ مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْرًا أَنْ يَكُونَ لَهُمْ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ وَمَنْ يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلاَلاً مُبِينًا))
“It is not befitting for a believing man or woman to have any choice in a matter, when it has been decided upon by Allah and His Messenger.” [Surah Al-Ahzab 33:36].
O Muslims of Pakistan’s Armed forces!
Democracy has failed and you are fully capable of bringing the Khilafah on the Method of the Prophethood, within hours. Bury the rotting Democracy, seize the corrupt rulers and grant the Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir now for the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood, so that we are finally ruled by our Deen, secured by it and led in battle against our enemies. So, who amongst you will respond to the promise of Allah (swt) and support His cause?
Allah (swt) said,
((وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ))
“Allah will certainly support those who support His cause, for indeed Allah is full of strength, exalted in might and able to enforce His will.” [Surah Al-Hajj 22: 40]
