Kashmir Day Emphasizes the Need for Khilafah: The Muslims of Occupied Kashmir Await Jihad by Pakistan’s Armed Forces for Liberation
The Muslims of Pakistan are now aware of the fact that the liberation of Occupied Kashmir is not possible through United Nations resolutions and the so-called international community. The experience of the last seventy years is quite enough to understand that the United Nations through the Security Council is a tool of the world’s colonialist powers. UN resolutions are not made upon justice, but rather to ensure the interests of those colonialist powers. Yet, despite knowing this reality, the rulers of Pakistan continually to embrace the United Nations and its chief influence the US. Moreover, when these rulers are asked to mobilize Pakistan’s armed forces for the liberation of Occupied Kashmir, these rulers harass, chase, arrest or even abduct those who make this demand. Naveed Butt, the Official Spokesman of Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Pakistan, is one of those abducted in this way after having accounted the rulers for years. On 15 March 2006, Naveed Butt wrote, “The only solution to the Kashmir issue is carrying out Jihad under a single Khaleefah by getting rid of these treacherous rulers. The Subcontinent’s thousand-year history is a witness to the fact that the Hindus only understand the words of thundering cannons, rather than the words uttered by the mouth.”
It is clear to all those of sight and insight that the liberation of Occupied Kashmir is not possible without Jihad undertaken by Pakistan’s armed forces. It is a matter of great concern for the entire Ummah that the Muslims of occupied Kashmir are continuously rendering sacrifices. They face the brutality of the Hindu forces bravely and do not accept slavery to the Hindu state. And they look to the day when the Pakistan’s armed forces mobilize in the way of modern day Muhammad Bin Qasim’s.
Although Pakistan’s political and military leadership does not mobilize Muslim armed forces for the liberation of Occupied Kashmir, they insist on sending our Muslim forces to every corner of the world to secure the interests of colonialist powers. A recent example of this treacherous behavior is the death of a Pakistani soldier serving for the UN in the Congo on 27 January 2018. Until now 153 personnel of our armed forces, including 23 officers, have given their lives while serving under the umbrella of the United Nations. At this very moment, six thousand of our soldiers and officers are posted in various corners of the world under United Nations’ missions. So why are our forces not sent to liberate Kashmir, yet find themselves in far flung places to secure the interests of the US and its colonialist institutions? Clearly, Pakistan’s rulers are not sincere to Islam and Muslims, but are loyal only to the people of Kufr and their leader, the US.
Hizb ut Tahrir/ Wilayah Pakistan demands from the Muslims of Pakistan that they solemnly commemorate this Kashmir day with the demand for the removal of the current rulers and the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood. It is the Khilafah alone that will mobilize the Muslim armed forces of Pakistan to liberate Occupied Kashmir, as it will conform strictly to the commands of Allah (swt). Allah said,
﴿فَمَنِ ٱعْتَدَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَٱعْتَدُواْ عَلَيْهِ بِمِثْلِ مَا ٱعْتَدَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ﴾
“So whoever has attacked you, then attack him in the same manner that he has attacked you.” [Al-Baqarah 2:194]
