PAKISTAN : MORE THAN A THOUSAND ATTEND HIZB-UT-TAHRIR'S CONFERENCE "TIME FOR CHANGE".
Conference held on Thursday 18th Sept 2008 3pm at Siddique Banquet Hall, Rawalpindi
More than a thousand people, both men and women, gathered today for a special conference organised by Hizb ut-Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan (Islamic Liberation Party), to hear how the Islamic Political Ruling system - Khilafah - can solve the current crisis facing Pakistan and establish the Muslims of Pakistan as a leading nation in the world. The event was held in Siddique Banquet Hall, Rawalpindi.
Amongst those who attended were local Ulema, students, professionals and lawyers gathered from the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi as well as from other cities like Jhelum, Deena and Murree.
The participants gathered to hear the speakers, including Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman, Naveed Butt talk on a range of vital issues facing Pakistan and Muslims.
Naveed Butt, the spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Pakistan, informed the audience that the so called War on Terror is a War against Islam and Pakistan. It has brought nothing but chaos, misery, death and destruction to Pakistan. He urged that Pakistan is a strong Nuclear and military power capable of defying the Americans - it should rely on this strength and pull out from America's war to save Pakistan.
Junaid Khan informed the audience that Economic policies imported from the World Bank and IMF have enslaved the Pakistani economy to the West where western interests, like debt repayment, take priority over relief to the masses. He mentioned that Khilafah ruling system would reject privatisation, implement Land reforms, introduce the Gold standard, refuse interest based loans and focus on distribution rather than production to solve Pakistan's economic worries.
The third speaker, Taimur Butt, spoke of the failure and corruption of the current politicians for the past 62 years and that it represents the failure of the Democratic system for Pakistan. He told the audience that the Western powers use Democracy to strengthen their grip over Pakistan and promote those politicians loyal to their western masters. He told the audience that Khilafah would return the Sovereignty of ruling to Allah and Islam and remove the authority of the corrupt politicians to rule by their whims and desires.
Osama Hanif shed light on the fact that establishing Khilafah is not only the solution to all our problems but also it is a religious obligation (fardh) on us to establish the rule of Allah (swt) on this earth. Evidences from the Quran, Sunnah and Ijma as-Sahaaba clearly prove that all the Muslims should work for establishing Khilafah which is the practical shape of establishing Allah's rule on this earth.
The final speaker, Saad Jigranwi, stressed on the Armed forces that they should come forth to support this work for Khilafah. They are the ones who can practically help us establish Khilafah in Pakistan. The responsibility of the whole Ummah lies on their shoulders and they should answer this call of Khilafah and support Hizb ut-Tahrir in this mission to give this Ummah the leading role in this world and also to gain Allah's pleasure in the Hereafter.
The event was well received by all who attended and were very impressed by the organisation of the event and promised to work for the re-establishment of Khilafah ruling system according to the Method of the Prophet Muhammed صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم
