Oh Allah, restore our shield, the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate)... Allahuma Ameen.

Foreign Direct Investment is a Cover for an Exploitative Capitalist Project to Prevent Pakistan’s Industrial Independence
It is a plan of the colonialist major powers to exploit the rest of the world economically. They ensure access over the abundant raw materials of the Third World. They use IMF conditions and Free Trade Agreements to choke local industry. They ensure local markets are opened for their own companies. They take their profits out of the country in US dollars, into their own economy. For the past two decades, the US has been leading the onslaught. US capitalist companies have announced 1.5 billion dollars worth of plans that exploit Pakistan's economy. It is Islam alone that can end the colonialist exploitation. It is the Khilafah that will establish heavy industry, so that the Muslim World will fully benefit from its abundant raw materials, whilst ending chronic import dependency.

Allah ﷻ Has Granted a Golden Opportunity for the Establishment of the Khilafah in Pakistan
Today, the colonialist major powers are in conflict, just as the Romans and Persians were before the dawn of the Islamic State. In a destructive war, Europe and the US support Ukraine, whilst the US tries to prevent China from supporting Russia. The US has mobilized India, Japan and Taiwan to join its hostility towards China. Strained by its current conflicts, the US is crippled by domestic bipartisan divisions, further reducing its ability to face international challenges. India is under strain whilst confronting China, and fears an active front against Pakistan. It is the Khilafah alone that can seize the current international and regional opportunity. It will unify the Muslim World as the world’s largest, most resourceful state, taking decisive steps to ensure the resurgence of Islam.

The Rulers and the Opposition Are All Committed to the Capitalist Economic System that Has Drowned Us in Poverty
We are in terrible economic pain. In our desperation, let us not make the mistake of turning to the opposition politicians, as they are the same as the rulers. Like the current rulers, they will meet and submit to the IMF. They will tie our currency to the dollar, which unleashes huge inflation. They will not issue gold and silver currency to stabilize prices. They will not abolish interest based financing and capital markets, which drowns us in growing debt. They will not abolish the privatization of electricity, oil and gas, reducing their prices. They will not work to unify Muslim world under Khilafah, thus unifying our resources. Abolish Democracy, establish Khilafah.

Whereas the Western Liberal Order Destroys Family Life, the Khilafah Will Promote Family Values
For the rights of women, we need nothing beyond the Noble Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ. The Muslim woman was given rights to choose the ruler, education, property and inheritance, thirteen centuries before the Western woman had to fight for such rights. For centuries women were honored mothers, judges, doctors, teachers and scientists. Today the world is ruined by Western liberal values, that have destroyed family life. Establish the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood to raise Islamic family values as guidance for all of humankind.

Why Send Artillery Shells to Ukraine, When They are Needed to liberate Kashmir and Masjid Al-Aqsa?
On 3 March 2023, the US Department of Defence announced that, “To meet Ukraine’s evolving battlefield requirements, the United States will continue to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with key capabilities.” Its list of supplies included 155mm artillery rounds, which Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) make for Pakistan Army’s SH15 howitzer. Pakistan’s rulers deplete our amunition reserves to support Biden’s war, to weaken Russia in Ukraine. Yet, they prevent our armed forces from liberating occupied Kashmir and Masjid Al-Aqsa.

Abolish Democracy to Escape Colonialism
Regardless of which party rules in Democracy, the colonialist Raj remains. Democracy is the open door for political, military, economic and cultural domination by the West. No party that calls to Democracy can ever end colonialism. That has been established in the 75 years of Pakistan’s existence, as well as in all 57 Muslim countries. What more evidence do we need? To escape colonialism, abolish Democracy and establish Khilafah.
