Open letter from Hizb ut –Tahrir to the People of Power
Uproot Musharraf and this corrupt system, re-establish Khilafah

O people of power and influence!

The present crisis that has gripped Pakistan has escalated from a collision between President General Pervez Musharraf and the Chief Justice to a golden opportunity to bring a genuine and substantial change within the country.The crisis was only sustainable because of the extreme frustration of the people with the current regimes policies. This opposition to Musharraf’s policies is clear during the demonstrations by the lawyers when they raised slogans against US President George W. Bush, his War on the Muslim World and his key agent within the region, President Musharraf. This opposition is also clear from widespread discussions within all circles of society criticizing policies that have favoured the colonialists over the Muslims in almost every sphere of governing, from education to economy and from law and order to foreign policy.At this critical time, it is important that the momentum for change is not wasted in a petty, trivial deal for a share in power but is used to end all possibility of future oppressors implementing policies that are against Islam and Muslims.

O people of power and influence!

Over the last seven years, President Musharraf was able to implement such unjust policies for one reason and for one reason only. It is the very system that is implemented in Pakistan. The current system has failed to restrict the hands of the oppressor because it allows man to decide what is halal and what is haram. That is why that matters that are clearly prohibited by Islam are implemented over the people’s heads. So, even though Islam forbade the privatization of public properties, such as gas, electricity and steel, Musharraf’s regime was able to do so because the current system gives the oppressor the power to allow what Islam has forbidden. Even though Islam ordered that the children are raised according the example of RasulAllah (SAW) the current system has allowed the transformation of the education and schooling into a campaign to destroy the Islamic family values. And even though Islam has ordered the Muslim armies to rescue the Muslims and liberate the Muslim Lands, the current system has sent Pakistan’s soldiers to defend American soldiers from the Muslims of the tribal areas.Moreover, the current system has not just failed over the last seven years, it has stung the Muslims again and again for over six decades. This is why that even though faces change, sometimes civilian and sometimes military, their policies are always working against the country. So, whether the rulers come through coup or election, initially Muslims welcome the new rulers but then within a few years the Muslims are cursing the rulers and praying for an end to their rule. It is high time that the people of power and influence turned away from petty struggle over positions in a system that has only brought ever greater harm to the affairs of the Muslims. RasulAllah (SAW) warned the Muslims,

لَا يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ
“The believer is not stung from the same hole twice.” (Bukhari)

O people of power and influence!

There is only one system that can prevent the repeated oppression of the people and end the domination of the kuffar. That is Islam’s ruling system, the Khilafah. In the Khilafah neither the elected Khaleefah nor the elected members of the Majlis-e-Ummah can decide what is halal and haram. Only laws that are rooted in evidences from the Quran and the Sunnah are implemented, ensuring that the entire society works for the interests of Islam and Muslims alone. It is only the Khilafah that can prevent the oppressor from implementing laws and policies that serve his desires or those of his colonialist masters. Allah سبحانه وتعالى ordered the Muslims decisively,

فَاحْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلاَ تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ عَمَّا جَاءَكَ مِنْ الْحَقِّ

“And rule between them by all that which Allah revealed to you, and do not follow their vain desires away from the truth which came to you.” [Surah Al-Mai’dah 5:48]

وَمَنْ لَمْ يَحْكُمْ بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ الظَّالِمُونَ

“Whosoever does not judge by all that which Allah has revealed, such are oppressors.” [Surah Al-Ma’idah 5: 45]

Only the Khilafah will bring you out of this situation of decline and humiliation, grant you political and economic stability and safeguard you from the intellectual and political attacks of the kuffar. For the Khilafah is that system which emanates from your aqeeda, made part of your deen by Allah سبحانه وتعالى and solved your problems practically from the time of the Khulafa-ar-Rashideen until 1924. And Allah سبحانه وتعالى has promised the believers peace and security through this very system. Allah سبحانه وتعالى 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

“Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them succession to the present rulers, as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their deen - the one which He has chosen for them - and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace” [Surah An-Noor 55]

O People of Power!

The people are ready for a real change. A change in faces will not be enough. Matters are now in your hands. You are capable of removing this despicable ruler and the system that allowed him to reak havoc upon the people for so long. We in Hizb ut-Tahrir call upon you to re-establish the Khilafah in place of the current corrupt system and ensure that the interests of Islam and Muslims are secure for generations to come.

So, who amongst will you respond to the promise of Allah and support His cause?

وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيز

“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]
