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

Not Releasing Naveed Butt, Advocate of the Khilafah, is Confirmation of the Falsehood of the Rulers
On 11 May 2023, it is eleven years since Naveed Butt, the official spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in the Wilayah of Pakistan, was abducted by government agencies. How is presenting the system of Khilafah and Islam’s treatments of the problems of the Islamic Ummah such a terrible crime? How is carrying Islam to journalists, columnists, intellectuals, politicians and public through writings, statements, speeches and presentations such a serious crime? Yet, Naveed Butt is neither released, nor produced before any court. Speak out against this injustice!
End the Cheap Power Struggle by Establishing Khilafah
After the arrest of Imran Khan, on 9 May 2023, the current chaos is only power politics. General, judges and politicians are all competing for power, extensions and posts. There is no interest of the Deen, country, state or people in the crisis. As long as this rotten federal democracy exists, the misery will continue. The only solution is to abolish the system that produced this chaos and replace it. We need a new state and a new politics. The only way to that is to restore the Khilafah Rashidah State.
The Real Issue is Not Elections. It is Replacing the Current System with Khilafah
Even if elections are held a hundred times, there will be no difference in the condition of the people. Democratic elections mean nothing more than powerful groups taking turns to oppress the people. It makes no difference whether the elections are held in July, October or later. Whether it is this government or the next government, their policies are already known. All democratic leaderships agree upon obedience to the IMF, usurious payments, inflation, slavery to America and surrender to the Hindu State.
It Befits a Muslim Army to Grant Nussrah for the Khilafah Rashidah, Not Support for Democracy
It is the military and political leadership that have made our army a target of hatred and attacks. They mobilize the army in support of Democracy, which is responsible for the economic misery, surrender of Kashmir and spread of corrupt liberal values. The support of a system of oppression leads only to humiliation and dishonor. Honor, respect and prestige lies in the support of Islam alone. It is a Shariah duty on the army to grant Nussrah for the re-establishment of the Khilafah Rashidah.
Democracy Ensures US Control. Independence Requires the Khilafah.
Before the current political storm, the US State Department Spokesman declared on 1 May 2023, “ democratic Pakistan is critical to U.S. interest.” It is Democracy that allows the agents of America to discard Islamic obligations. It is Democracy that allows American agents to fulfill conspiracies against the Deen, wealth and lands of the Muslims. Anyone, who wants independence from colonialists, must call for Khilafah. The Khaleefah is prevented from treachery because he must implement laws and policies, according to the Noble Quran and the Prophetic Sunnah.
Colonialist Policy Prevents World Leading Industrial Production in the Muslim World
The government's “Economic Update & Outlook of April 2023” points out that Large Scale Manufacturing “remains considerably below its potential.” Colonialist economic policy ensures the Muslim World is dependent on expensive foreign imports, including military hardware. It imposes a system of sanctions, penalties, blacklists, conditions and prescriptions to prevent the manufacture of heavy machinery, engines and cutting-edge technologies. The Khilafah led scientific and technological advancement for centuries before and after its re-establishment it will do so again inshaaAllah.
The Khilafah Alone Will Heal the Divide over Civilian and Military Supremacy
Regarding the struggle of Imran Khan with the army, on 13 May 2023, the army chief warned, “there will be no room for spoilers.” However, the struggle over civilian and military supremacy has been going on for decades now. Islam alone can heal this divide. Ruling by Islam unified the Muhajir (ra) and the Ansaar (ra), who gave military support. It is upon the armed forces to grant Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir so that the Muslims are unified by the implementation of Islam.
