The Muslim Ummah today is the target and the victim of diverse forms of aggression by the imperialist disbelievers and polytheists. Thousands of Muslims are being killed and made homeless from military aggression in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Kashmir etc. There is also the political aggression whereby the likes of Mahmoud Abbas, Pervez Musharraf, Hamid Karzai and Fakhruddin Ahmed have been imposed on the Ummah who surrender her interests to the Jews, Christians and the polytheists. Add to this the economic aggression of foreign financial institutions such as the IMF and the WB which have impoverished the Ummah. These are some of the forms of aggression which lead to the loss of our lives, wealth and strategic interests.
However there is also another important component to the aggression carried out by the imperialist disbelievers and polytheists against the Ummah. This is the cultural aggression which aims to eliminate the sublime Islamic values from our societies, wipe out any traces of the Islamic culture in our lives and lead us away from the Deen. Regarding this plan of the disbelievers, Allah (swt) warns us in the noble Qur’an:
Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you till you follow their religion [TMQ 2:120]
To achieve this aim the enemies of the Ummah in the West and in India are specifically targeting the Muslim youth. They together with their agents are working on making the youth pursue the trivial things in life where freedom, enjoyment, and sensual pleasure are the sole concern of life. As a consequence the Muslim youth would live in this world in a degenerate manner with no honorable lasting purpose in their life. Just a cursory look at the West where life is built upon concepts of freedom, enjoyment and the pursuit of sensual pleasure will reveal to us the dangers of these concepts. In the Western societies man has degenerated to the level of the animal by unleashing his instincts and organic needs. As a result of these concepts immoralities such as adultery, fornication, pornography, abnormal sexual relationships, addiction to drugs, disrespect for parents etc have become widespread and even legal!
These are the things the West as well as her Indian allies are working on spreading in our societies. They are financing beauty contests, song and dance contests, and concerts which have become regular in our cities. They are making the supply of drugs such as YABA in abundant amounts. They are setting up various institutions and media means in increasing numbers to spread corruption and filth amongst the Muslim youth. Just listen to the programmes aired on the FM radio stations after midnight, which has become the latest trend, to realize what the enemies of Islam and their agents are indoctrinating in the youth. These programmes are encouraging the full host of abominable acts. They are encouraging the Muslim youth to engage in free mixing and lewdness. They are pushing the boys to become what they call ‘love guru’, and the girls to accept fornication as a normal act in the name of ‘love’. They are teaching the youth to disrespect and disobey their parents.
The youth are the future leaders of the Ummah as well as her future soldiers. The Muslim youth are supposed to be the flag bearers of Islam like Mohammad ibn Al-Qasem who conquered Sind and brought Islam to India Tariq ibn Zayd who conquered Spain for Islam at the age of 17 and Muhammad al-Fateh who led the Muslim army into Constantinople at the age of 24. In this regard we have a duty and responsibility assigned to us by Allah (swt) who commands us in the noble Qur’an: >
O you who believe! Ward off yourselves and your families against the Fire whose fuel is men and stones [TMQ 66:6]
Take steps before our society degenerates to the level of the West.
Rush before society reaches a point when fornication and adultery becomes widespread!
Rush before women lose the sense of their own honour and feel no shame in abnormal relationships!
Rush before sons disown their parents and ties of family and kinship disappear!
Hizb ut-Tahrir Bangladesh calls upon you to undertake the following actions to fulfill your responsibilities:
- Concentrate the Islamic culture and the sublime Islamic values within the hearts and minds of the youth;
- Raise public opinion against the institutions and the media means which are corrupting the Muslim youth; and
- Work towards establishing the Islamic KHILAFAH which will safeguard the Islamic thoughts and sensations in society and also prevent the institutions and media means from indoctrinating the youth with concepts which contradict the Islamic culture.
O you who believe! Answer (the call of) Allah and His Messenger when He calls you to that which gives life [TMQ 8:24]
