A call from Hizb ut-Tahrir to the people on the 3rd anniversary of the Pilkhana Massacre

Kafir-Mushrik imperialists, US-Britain-India, are consolidating their grip over the country and the Muslim Army through their agent Hasina; establish the Khilafah under the leadership of Hizb ut-Tahrir to become free from their control

Tomorrow (25th February, 2012) will mark the 3rd year of the killing of the country’s bright army officers by India, with the collaboration of Sheikh Hasina. The heinous massacre was perpetrated to remove the officers from the Army who were likely to resist the presence of, and establishing military-to-military relationship with, the Mushrik Army of India. Hizb ut-Tahrir informed the people about the plot and the plotters at that time (February, 2009). The Pilkhana massacre was the first act against the country’s military in which Hasina collaborated but it was not the last. On 07 January, 2012, we, Hizb ut-Tahrir, in a leaflet exposed the continuing treacherous acts of Hasina against the military, particularly about the abductions, arrests and dismissals of sincere officers who are standing up for Islam and the interests of the country.

Strong public opinion was generated against the government’s policy of purging bright and sincere officers from the military, as a result of the distribution of thousands of this leaflet, as well as pasting posters and mass contacting. The government was forced to arrange a media briefing by the army, on 19 January, 2012, in an attempt to control the public opinion. It was not a briefing arranged by the military; rather Hasina was using the military to justify her actions because she knows very well that her words have no credibility to the people. This is similar to Pakistan where the government there uses some US agents in the military to announce their participation in America’s War against Islam. So Hasina, after conducting for the past three years a crusade against Islam in politics, education and general public life, now announced its extension to the military. In fact by this briefing, where the military of this country of 160 million Muslims was branded as “blind religious zealots” in an atheist-communist fashion, the government confirmed its participation in the permanent war against Islam by US-Britain-India. This was further clarified by the statement of the Awami League General Secretary Syed Ashraf when he said that this purge will be a continuous process. Moreover the statement by the chairperson of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence, Idris Ali, that the military will be monitored to search out the Islamic officers and remove them, definitely spelled out the government’s policy of crusade against the military and the Ummah.

What Hasina announced is in fact the current plan of the kafir-mushrik imperialists regarding this country and it’s Muslim Army. The leader of these imperialists, America has a design to prevent the return of the Islamic Khilafah in this region (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia) and contain the rise of China. For this purpose she prefers a strategic partnership with India in order to secure her strong presence and hegemony in the region. For this they have a need to consolidate their grip over Bangladesh and its military, which is what they are doing through Hasina and the ruling regime. Therefore, the government, the opposition, and some in the military leadership in Bangladesh are being used as agents by these two enemy countries to solve the long standing issues with India and for establishing so-called friendly relationship with Indian military. This will facilitate India to join hands with America in implementing her design to prevent the return of Islam and contain China.

In executing this plan of the kafir-mushrik imperialists to consolidate their grip over the country and the Muslim Army, Hasina and the regime has taken numerous steps, only some of which are mentioned below:

First: The brutal killings, and mutilation of the brave and bright officers in Pilkhana.

Second: Dismissals or forced retirement of all the officers who raised their voice of protest against the killings and mutilation in Hasina’s presence at the programme at Shenakunja after the killings.

Third: Arresting, torturing, dismissing or forcefully retiring many high ranking officers, including brigadier generals, lieutenant colonels and majors, under the excuse of having links with Indian separatists, so-called militants, bomb attack on ruling party MP Sheikh Fazal-e-Nur Taposh and having anti-Indian attitude! Furthermore due to the prevailing atmosphere, since Pilkhana killings, at least 150 officers submitted their resignations fearing imminent harm upon them.

Fourth: In July, 2011, two lieutenant colonels were recalled to Dhaka from their posts, separated from their families and confined for a long period, this was acknowledged later through a press release. In addition recently three officers were abducted; one of whom, a major, managed to escape and revealed the government’s plots; as result the government is frantically searching for him to arrest him.

Fifth: Organizing a two week long military exercise with the Indian military, ‘Sampriti-1’ from 01-14 November, 2010, for the first time in the history of Bangladesh military. And organizing a second military exercise, ‘Sampriti-2’ for two weeks from 09 October, 2011, in Sylhet, which was the first in history on the soil of Bangladesh. Through these exercises, after she sold herself to the enemy, Hasina started the process of subjugating the Bangladesh military under India. According to military sources the Bangladesh military did not request or express any interest in organizing these exercises; rather they were organized at the political leadership level after requests from the Indian side.

Sixth: Humiliating the country’s Muslim Army by making them salute the chief of the Mushrik Army, V K Singh, when he made a five day visit to Bangladesh, on 19 June, 2011.

Seventh: Granting transit to India to fulfill her security and economic interests.

Eighth: Handing over the country’s strategic territories to India, under the guise of land survey and boundary demarcation.

Ninth: Continuing the policy of maintaining total US domination over the Bangladesh military, which started from the time of the US agent Ziaur Rahman and which successive governments after him followed. Therefore Hasina organized four US military exercises in Bangladesh, ‘Tiger Shark’ in 2009 and 2010. And thereafter she organized the US military exercise, ‘CARAT’ in 2011.

And tenth: Signing contracts with US multinational companies, including ConocoPhillips, to facilitate their looting of the country’s oil and gas. And after public opposition to the ‘TIFA’ treaty, Hasina government is negotiating with the US to sign the same treaty under a new name, “TICFA” to establish US dominance over the country’s trade and commerce.

O Muslims!

This is but a brief description of Hasina’s crimes against the Army and the country. She is sparing no effort in aiding the imperialists to consolidate their grip over you and your Army. On the other hand when it comes to solving your problems the ruling regime’s only effort is to lie to you, as Hasina did when she said people can now buy 10-12kg of rice with 100 taka! Or to mock your feelings which her minister did when he said the government is not worried about BSF torture and killings!! Or to insult you intelligence which the Home Minister, Sahara Khatun, did when she said her announcement that the killers of the journalist couple will be captured in 48 hours was a tactics!!! Although the truth, which everyone knows, is that the government has no control over the law and order situation.

The only way to free yourselves from the control of the imperialists and end your hardships is to establish the Khilafah. When you do that Allah (SWT) will open the doors of blessings for you. The Khilafah state will secure the basic needs of the people, solve the long running problems faced by the people such as poverty and unemployment, industrialize the country’s economy, build this country as the starting point for becoming a global super power, build the military as a strong and advanced fighting force, and unify with the Muslim Ummah.

{ وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْقُرَى آمَنُوا وَاتَّقَوْا لَفَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ بَرَكَاتٍ مِنْ السَّمَاءِ وَالأَرْضِ وَلَكِنْ كَذَّبُوا فَأَخَذْنَاهُمْ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ }
(الأعراف: 96)

“And if the people of the towns had believed and had the Taqwa, certainly, We should have opened for them blessings from the heaven and the earth, but they denied. So, We took them (with punishment) for what they used to earn.” [TMQ Al-A’raf: 96]

You need to break your silence and come out to struggle against Hasina and her government to establish the Khilafah, under the leadership of Hizb ut-Tahrir. Do not turn to the BNP alliance. BNP alliance is part of the same democratic regime. They will serve the imperialists just like the Hasina government. So do not respond to their grand rallies. These rallies are the means in their effort to sell themselves to the imperialists by showing your large gatherings under their banner. RasulAllah (SAW) said,

”لا يلدغ المؤمن من جحر واحد مرتين”

“The believer is not stung from the same hole twice.”

O Muslim Officers!

You are more aware of the truth of what we are saying. You are also aware that Hizb ut-Tahrir was the first and the only party to expose the real plot and plotters behind the Pilkhana massacre. And you are aware that only Hizb ut-Tahrir has been consistently exposing Hasina’s treachery against you and the country. We have been fulfilling our responsibilities and making sacrifices in this way. And we will continue to do so, for the sake of Allah (SWT). When will you fulfill your responsibility to remove Hasina and provide us your Nusrah so that we can establish the Khilafah? You have enough reasons to motivate and inspire you to do this:

Feeling of vengeance - Tomorrow (25-02-2012) when you will be remembering your brothers with grief, the Indian BSF will be having a cocktail party to celebrate their killings! Hasina has drenched her hand with the blood of your brothers when she collaborated with these enemies; this is enough to generate in you the feeling of vengeance.

Anger from being humiliated - Hasina forced you to salute the chief of the mushrik Army; this is enough humiliation to make your blood boil.

The urgency to protect your institution - No doubt you realize that the removal of your sincere and bright officers; and the domination of US-India is a grave harm to your institution, which must be stopped urgently.

Responsibility to the people - You are the sons of this Ummah and they are crying out for deliverance from this life of misery. Their cries do reach your ears and this surely creates in you the eagerness to overthrow the ruling regime, instead of sitting and watching the democratic circus whereby Hasina and Khaleda can continue to ruin the people’s lives, if there is anything more left to ruin.

The vision of restoring the glory of your Ummah - RasulAllah (SAW) gave you the glad tidings,

”عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ عِصَابَتَانِ مِنْ أُمَّتِي أَحْرَزَهُمْ اللَّهُ مِنْ النَّارِ عِصَابَةٌ تَغْزُو الْهِنْدَ وَعِصَابَةٌ تَكُونُ مَعَ عِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام”

“Two groups of my Ummah Allah has protected from the Hellfire: a group that will conquer India and a group that will be with ‘Isa ibnu Maryam.”

This gives you a clear vision of your role as a Muslim Army. All you need is the commander-in-chief, the Khaleefah who will prepare you and lead you to materialize this vision.

And the Promise of Allah - The return of the Khilafah is the promise of Allah (SWT) to the Muslims. And you are in the position of being honoured as the Ansar, if you provide the support in establishing it.  So remove Hasina and grant Hizb ut-Tahrir your nusrah so that we may establish the Khilafah. Allah (SWT) says,

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُم فِي الأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لاَ يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ  الْفَاسِقُونَ


“Allah has promised those among you who believe and do righteous deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the land, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them authority to practice their Deen which He has chosen for them. And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do no associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whosoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqun.”  [TMQ Surah An-Nur: 55]

2 Rabii II 1433 H.
