Hizb ut-Tahrir UK Conference

Jan 26, 2021

 

The Islamist political party Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT) remains active in the UK. In late 2020, HuT Britain reported that it had held “an international online conference on The Return of the Islamic World Order.

According to the report on this gathering published by HuT, “Speakers showed how the secular capitalist world is incapable of providing coherent solutions for humanity and in fact, lies at the heart of most of the suffering in the world today.

During the question and answer sessions, the speakers reportedly “addressed the current French hostility to Islam and the pathetic response of prime ministers and presidents in the Muslim world when the Messenger of Allah is insulted.” Muslim leaders were said to have only revealed their “weakness with their empty words”, and to have demonstrated that “they are in fact mere puppets of the West.

Further, the report stated,

Today our Islamic way of life is criticised openly in the media, politicians accuse our values of being backward, our brothers and sisters are slaughtered overseas to secure colonial interests, and our beloved Prophet ﷺ is insulted in the name of free speech. Yet the Muslims are expected to remain silent at this! The conference speakers showed how this must never become acceptable, and narrated examples of how the Khilafah was able to prevent such abuse in the past.

And finally, it said

The conference concluded that the world is yearning for change; for an end to this unjust capitalist hegemony. It is not enough to waste our energies reforming capitalism, rather the complete implementation of Islam is the only solution that will end the horror and tyranny that is the secular world order.”
