Hizb ut-Tahrir members are slandered in Jalal-Abad, Kyrgyzstan
On December 12, the Kabar information agency and a number of official web sites and TV channels spread an information about arrest of several members of Hizb ut-Tahrir party in Jalal-Abad region of Kyrgyzstan. According to them, explosive devices and parts were found in houses of arrested members. http://kabar.kg/news/v-dzhalal-abade-zaderzhany-chleny-reo-khizb-ut-takhrir/
Hizb ut-Tahrir is a political party with ideology of Islam. It was founded in response to the call of Allah the Almighty:
وَلْتَكُنْ مِنْكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنْ الْمُنْكَرِ وَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ الْمُفْلِحُونَ
“Let there arise from among you a band of people who should invite to righteousness, enjoin good and forbid evil; such are the ones who shall be successful.“ (3:104)
The party’s goal is to restore the Islamic life style. Hizb ut-Tahrir determined its method to achieve the goal as ideological and political fight in accordance with the method of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) in establishing the State and it does not accept any violent actions. Every member of the party must select exactly this method as the principle of his activities.
Therefore, the above statement about the Hizb ut-Tahrir members is nothing more than another slander spread by Kyrgyzstan’s MIA (Ministry of Internal Affairs), SCNS (State Committee for National Security), and information agencies in order to fight against the Islamic climate in the society that Hizb creates. The Kufr failed to draw Hizb ut-Tahrir to armed or violent actions. They could not find a single call to violence in any publication of Hizb ut-Tahrir because the Hizb chose the Meccan period of Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) as the principle of its activities. Therefore, Hizb ut-Tahrir regards inacceptable that any member of the party would bear responsibility of physical actions that pertain to a state’s function. Almost all politicians of the world know very well that it is the principal position of Hizb ut-Tahrir and that it will never abandon its position.
In order to account for foreign donors, the Kyrgyz government continues its attacks on Hizb ut-Tahrir members who almost publicly summon in the society. Failing to find any “Islamic armed threats”, the government started to slander against Hizb ut-Tahrir. As the nature of Hizb ut-Tahrir is strictly ideological (based on certain ideas), anyone who becomes the member of the party voluntarily accepts these ideas and adhere to them in thoughts and actions, proving his adherence to the Hizb. Otherwise, i.e. if someone’s acts are contrary to these ideas, then he is not considered as a member of the Hizb.
This case is similar to the fact when there are hundreds of murderers among state security agencies, and there are groups of people among clerks who control borders and drug traffic and earn billions. There are a lot of those among legislators who violate their own laws although their deeds do not dirt “holiness” of laws and constitution; but those who stand against this vicious reality will be put in prison. To be more exactly, they believe that any illegal act against laws or accepted rules of religious organizations cannot defame their honor and dignity and neither the state, nor any organization bear responsibility for that. Kyrgyzstan officially admitted that it expelled two previous presidents by extremist acts. However, it did not keep them from judging by default about their life term imprisonment. Kyrgyzstan should abandon its state system! Moreover, the state sentenced Omurbek Tekebaev, one of the prominent representatives of political elite, the one who wrote the KR constitution by his own hands, the one who was in the vanguard when two presidents were expelled. As he is the one who formed the current power. However, the state is the same, and the same people from the past are in it. Their conscience is not even bothering them for all these crimes!
There is another attempt to slander Hizb ut-Tahrir! This case reminds the proverb “no barber shaves so close but another finds work”. Despite the stigma of “extremist and terrorist” is more appropriate for the power itself, they shamelessly insult Hizb and other Islamic organizations. As Russia enlisted Hizb in terrorist organizations, Kyrgyzstan is trying to carry favor and to pin material threats to Hizb. Previously, there were attempts to label “terrorism” on it. However, the global community does not remember a single case of Hizb’s adherence to physical activity, which restrains the government from this filthy idea. Oh, Kyrgyzstan’s Muslims! Open your eyes, as it will be too late! All these acts of the Kufr against Hizb are directed against Islam and Muslims! Today, Hizb is a shield and protects from the Kufr’s strikes by conducting ideological and political activities. However, it is not only Hizb’s duty to protect Islam. The real power against the Kufr is in hands of Ummah. The Nusrat (help from Allah) will come only when the Ummah of Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) will unite around its own ideology and will not leave its brother in the jaws of the Kufr and will say “Get away!” Otherwise, after Hizb, the Kufr will strike Tabligi Jamaat, Ihwanul Muslimin, Chubak Ajy, Ozbek Ajy, etc. Islamic values also will be in danger together with them. Repressions in Uzbekistan are a good example for that.
It is still not late! It is enough to show distrust to the Kufr and say: “Stop disgracing honor and dignity of Islam and Muslims!”, “Stop slandering Muslims!” However, if we lose time, the Kufr will take this opportunity from us! As it strives for it day and night! The Kufr world is deliberately trying to bring the policy of hard hand into the country and use weak power of Kyrgyzstan in its own purposes! By creating a chaos, they will try to misdirect and return Kyrgyzstan into the flow of unbelief! Representatives of security ministries might unconsciously open the doors for the Kufr. We must be cautious because the power is in very weak position. It is under influence of international forces of the Kufr. Andiit is ready for any conditions of those forces.
