The Culture Ministry in Denmark issued a statement on the 10th of May 2016. The subject of the statement was changes to the law applying upon the two laws of ‘People’s Awareness’ and ‘Municipal Agencies’. This was when the government and the following parties: Social Democrats, The Denmark People’s Party (The Liberal Coalition), the Socialist People’s Party and the Conservatives Party, all agreed to change the law where: “It is not valid for associations whose aim or activities are representative of acting against democracy or to undermine it. This includes any action against or undermining the freedom of worship or the freedom of expression. It is not valid for them to receive and government financial support or for them to use facilities”. In addition to that they also change the law of municipal agencies where it is not valid for the municipalities to lend or hire the halls to “Associations whose aim and activities represent an action against or undermining democracy and the fundamental principles of the freedoms and human rights, including freedom of worship and freedom of expression…”
Just after the press release was issued, the lord mayor of Copenhagen for Cultural Affairs came out revealing his delight as it finally became with in his ability to prevent Hizb ut Tahrir from hiring meeting halls made available by the municipality. This was a matter that continued, for a number of years, to represent a thorn in the throats of the politicians and an intellectual challenge to them, every time Hizb
Hizb ut Tahrir filled the municipal halls with participants who were interested what the Hizb presented in their open intellectual and political seminars.
It is worth mentioning here that the municipality’s legal advisors themselves had warned previously that preventing the Hizb from using the municipality’s halls represents a breach of the principle of equality, the principle which they are now sacrificing. That is because no principles are sacred in the view of the West in its struggle to protect itself from the Da’wah of Islam.
These changes to the law are no more than an episode in the war raging against Islam in this country which is led by the government with the participation of the political parties and the propaganda of the press which is called “free”. We have witnessed for a number of months, media campaign after another against the Muslims and their mode of living, against their Masaajid and their superior Sharee’ah, and against any and every thing that they can connect or tie and opinion or statement about Islam to.
Whenever Islam or the Sharee’ah are mentioned, we see the prominent ministers and politicians coming out to the masses churning out and warning with crazy and destructive proposals. That is because of the appearance of a popularity of ‘Being severe against the Muslims” and to strangle any Islamic statement, fearful, in an attempt to prevent Islam becoming rooted or normalised within the country in a wider manner.
The increased monitoring of free Islamic schools, preventing those who they have called “Hate preachers” from entering Denmark and criminalising Islamic statements represents no more that the last measures of the “Hate Preachers” languishing in the Danish parliament whilst they hastily looking for a more productive method to counter Islam in Denmark. And no “Freedom” from their beloved “Freedoms” will be saved from the butcher’s knife, in this process of civilizational suicide implemented by the politicians in their attempt to destroy the civilizational credibility of the Muslims and destroy the critical thinking of their non-Muslim citizens.
Politicians claim that they are forbidding the continuation of the “fear of interaction” with the Muslims and their lack of being smelted into the Western societies. That is whilst the true reality is that what these politicians are doing reveals their lack of a deep confidence in their values. That is when they are unable to conceal their hatred towards Muslims they resort to preventative and totalitarian measures covered up behind freedom. And the “fear of interaction” existing amongst them is in truth the fear of interacting with the thoughts of Islam and its elevated values. Indeed, they are scared from the results that the interaction of the different segments of Danish society with Islaam leads to in terms of increasing numbers of those who enter into and embrace Islam, and particularly at the near-end of the western civilisation that we are witnessing in the current time.
In its civilizational incompetence, it appears that the western states have begun to direct their sights to their client and barbaric regimes within the Middle East and to their own western dark past in order to find inspiration in regards to how to pursue the Muslims.
Maybe the next step will be a collective confinement of Muslims in mass detention centres due to the suspicion that they embrace “undesirable” thoughts where they will be monitored continuously. A matter that reminds us of the period during the 20th century and the totalitarian regimes that dominated Europe during that time. However, this is exactly what it is on its way of becoming a reality in the “Land of the mother of freedoms – France” in the case where the French Prime Minister announced last week that it will complete the setting up of 13 centres “for treating extremism” in all parts of the country where “Islamic extremists” will be held and indeed, even the Muslims who show “signs of extremism” in the case where they will be made to wear specific clothing and monitored continuously for ten months, in a process of forced secularisation.
Even without the existence of suspicious terrorist acts, which the western states use as a pretext, we see how these states, including Denmark, are on their way towards an ideological and civilisational abyss in their attempt to eliminate the Islamic identity and erect a barrier between their people and the light of Islam. The latest measures against Islam and the Muslims in this country represent no more than the convulsions of a dying civilisation that possesses a contradictory system. That is in the case where the politicians are claiming that they wish to protect democracy against Islamic fundamentalism whilst what they are doing in reality with this values despotism is actually the burying of their values by their own hands and hammering in one nail after another in the coffin of their democracy: ﴿يُخْرِبُونَ بُيُوتَهُمْ بِأَيْدِيهِمْ﴾ “They are destroying their houses by their own hands” [Al-Hashr: 2].
And here we see how the western civilisation is destined for defeat in a time when the divine Sharee’ah of Islam is not applied in any place in the world. So what do you think will be the situation when the Muslims establish their state, that will unify the Muslims in all parts of the Dunyaa (world) and will carry Islam to the world in order to take humanity out of the darkness of capitalism and its sufferings, and into the light of Islam and its mercy?!
We, your brothers and sisters in Hizb ut Tahrir, reiterate the continuation of our untiring work to preserve the identity of the Muslims in the West and the Da’wah to non-Muslims to embrace Islam. Just as we continue our serious and diligent work to resume the Islamic life in the form of the rightly guided Khilafah (Caliphate) in the Islamic world. The single result of the continuous threats of the politicians and increased tightening of laws, is that they are assisting to reveal the credibility and truthfulness of our thoughts.
We invite you to take part in this great obligation and to support those undertaking it. That is because you, O Muslims, are those who possess the Haqq (Truth) that has been revealed from the Lord of the Worlds. You have your Islam, in the Book of Allah that is before you and the Sunnah of your Prophet. This represents the salvation for the world as a whole and a guidance for all humanity. As for the repetitive attacks against Islam, then it will not increase us except in determination to intensify our efforts to present the truthful thoughts of Islam, the pure values and just systems, as the only and unique alternative to the western decrepit civilisation and its corrupt systems.
