Such condemnable attacks will persist as long as American forces remain at sensitive military places
A surprise attack by more than a dozen terrorists on a most sensitive area, the Mehran naval airbase, which is located at Karachi's most secure Shara-i-Faisal Street is as unbelievable as the 2nd May incident, when America intruded a hundred and fifty kilometers inside Pakistani territory to conduct a unilateral covert operation in Abbotabad, within a stones throw of the Kakul Military Academy.
Attacks of such magnitude will continue on our installations as long as Americans are allowed to roam inside the Army's General Head Quarters (GHQ) and other sensitive military installations. In the name of co-operation in the War on Terror, besides the Pakistan Army, America now knows the details of these installations. Through these incidents of terrorism, the Muslims of Pakistan are being forced to accept that "War on Terror" is not an American war, rather this war is our own war. This tactic was revealed by US President Obama in December 2009 when he said "In the past, there have been those in Pakistan who have argued that the struggle against extremism is not their fight...But in recent years, as innocents have been killed from Karachi to Islamabad...Public opinion has turned." Further more recently published reports from Wikileaks provide more proof that the current political and military leadership is ready to spill the blood of their country men through drone attacks, bomb blasts and military operations in tribal areas, just to gain the blessing of America. It is also possible that the attack on Mehran base in Karachi will be used as an excuse to start military operations in Kurram agency, just as the attack on GHQ was used as a pretext to launch military operation in Orakzai agency. Newspapers are already publishing news of preparations to start military operations in Kurram agency. An army and its affiliated institutions which were once feared by major powers because of their capability and bravery, has now had its own headquarters and installations attacked, with its reputation at stake.
The terror perpetrated by the Americans and backed by the traitors within the political and military leaderships, represent two crimes: first, open murder of the innocents in this country, and second: securing the interests of the foreign colonial power, which mandates the harshest of punishments for the offenders,
( إِنَّمَا جَزَاءُ الَّذِينَ يُحَارِبُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الأَرْضِ فَسَادًا أَنْ يُقَتَّلُوا أَوْ يُصَلَّبُوا أَوْ تُقَطَّعَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَرْجُلُهُمْ مِنْ خِلاَفٍ أَوْ يُنفَوْا مِنْ الأَرْضِ ذَلِكَ لَهُمْ خِزْيٌ فِي الدُّنيَا وَلَهُمْ فِي الآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ ) (المائدة: 33)
"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace In This world, and a heavy punishment is theirs In the Hereafter." (Surah Al-Maida 5: 33)
And the greatest crime is betraying the security of the people due to despicable policies. We know that the sincere Mujahideen do not do such crimes. Those who always claim responsibility for such crimes do not belong to the sincere Mujahedeen. Therefore we request that the Mujahedeen condemn such crimes publicly to make clear that the one behind it are the Americans and their agents in the country.
Hizb ut-Tahrir asks the sincere officers of the Pakistan armed forces as to how long they will look on passively at this disgrace and humiliation. The Ummah is looking actively towards you to come forward, uproot these treacherous rulers and provide Nussrah to Hizb ut-Tahrir to establish the Khilafah.
