Press Release
Are you not ashamed... Is there not a righteous man among you?!

On Monday, 26/02/2024, the political police forces stormed the regional office of Hizb ut Tahrir in Kairouan to remove a poster advertising the 2024 annual Khilafah (Caliphate) conference with unjust force. It reminded Muslims in Tunisia of their duty to establish the Khilafah obligated by Allah upon them, just as He obligated prayer, fasting, and Hajj... Their chief said, "The order to remove the poster was due to the word ‘Khilafah’ mentioned in it" (like this)!

This aggression was not the first and will not be the last, but we say to the police officers used by the authority and those behind them from the colonizers' embassies:

1- Do you not know that the word “Khilafah” which troubled you is from the words of the Messenger of Allah (saw), mentioned in dozens of authentic prophetic hadeeth? Any objection to the Khilafah is indeed an objection to the noble Prophet (saw).

2- Do you not know about the Khilafah you are disturbed by?! The Khilafah is the succession to the Messenger of Allah (saw) in ruling by the commands of the Lord of the Worlds, which He revealed as a mercy to humankind. Have you seen how they used you to strike your Deen and undermine your dignity?!

3- The Khilafah is the State commanded by the Lord of the Worlds for Muslims to establish, to achieve justice and safety worldwide. It is the State that will unify Muslims and mobilize armies from their barracks to fulfill their authentic role in protecting Muslims, their children, and their women from the killing and slaughter they face in Palestine and elsewhere. Have you seen how they have exploited you as servants for your enemies and the enemies of your country?!

Did the word “Khilafah” disturb you?! Is this what perturbed you and made you restless until you removed a banner from a wall with the word “Khilafah” on it?! Were you not disturbed by the cries of children, women, and elders who are slaughtered every day?! We did not see your actions in anger over the crimes of America and the Jewish entity?! We did not see you get angry when the American ambassador to Tunisia, the head of the aggression against Palestine, roamed through Tunisia on February 13, 2024, accompanied by Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for African Affairs, Jennifer Zakrisk and Kenneth Ekman, one of the directors of AFRICOM, all welcomed by the Minister of Defense, Imed Memmich?! While tons of bombs were being dropped on the heads of our people in Palestine, destroying and crushing them. And you, where were you?! At that time, you were endorsing this sinful meeting! You were welcoming the war criminals of America and protecting their convoys on the roads of Tunisia, while their sinful hands drip with our blood!!

Are you not ashamed?! What kind of ranks do you belong to? This enemy roams our lands and you remain silent like the dead! But when the Khilafah and Islam are mentioned, you spring from your silence, unable to rest until you remove the word! What is this?! Whose interest do you serve? Who ordered you to do so? And why do you obey them?! Are you not Muslims?! Have you forgotten Kairouan, the city founded by the Khilafah?! Kairouan in the days of the Khilafah(which you are disturbed by) was a capital among the greatest capitals of the world. From there, conquests were launched, and from there, the goodness of Islam spread westward to Morocco, Algeria, Andalusia, and southern France. We ask you again, did Kairouan know its glory except in the days of the Khilafah?

Are you not ashamed?! Are you not concerned?! Is there not a righteous man among you?!

Hizb utTahrir calls upon you and calls upon Muslims to restore the Khilafah, so that Kairouan may regain its glory, so that Muslims may regain their dignity and honor. Is this what bothers you and disturbs your peace, threatening the security of the country and its people?!

So let them know, and let those who order you regarding your affairs and the embassies standing behind them know, that the call for the Khilafah has deep roots in the land and the most powerful countries have not been able to stop it,so how about a crippled authority?! For it is a call whose origin is firm and its branches reach the sky.

O People in Kairouan of the Khilafah, O Muslims:

Is the Khilafah a crime in Muslim countries?! Would calling for rule by Islam be a crime in Islamic countries?!!

You are from a Ummah honored by Islam, and it is sufficient for you as a blessing. You are from a Ummah whose honor Allah (swt) has exalted by being the best Ummah brought forth for humankind, and its goodness lies in implementing Islam, and there is no implementation of Islam except through a Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) upon the method of the Prophethood, as the Messenger of Allah (saw) said. Do you wage war against the Khilafah in Kairouan of the Khilafah?! Are you pleased with that?!

Allah (swt) says:

[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَن يَرْتَدَّ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَسَوْفَ يَأْتِي اللهُ بِقَوْمٍ يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ أَذِلَّةٍ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَعِزَّةٍ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ يُجَاهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ وَلَا يَخَافُونَ لَوْمَةَ لَائِمٍ ذَلِكَ فَضْلُ اللهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَاللهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ]

O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion - Allah will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him [who are] humble toward the believers, powerful against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic. That is the favor of Allah; He bestows it upon whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.[Al-Ma’ida:54].
