    Hizb ut-Tahrir Rejects Reports of Funding by Osama ibn Laden

    Naveed Butt, the official spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Pakistan, has rejected Russian media reports about the alleged funding of Hizb ut-Tahrir to carry out terrorist actions against the government of Tajikistan. "This report is part of an ongoing campaign by the West and the Russian media establishment to justify the brutal oppression of the Muslims of Central Asia by portraying the work of Hizb ut-Tahrir as being of a violent nature", stated Naveed Butt.
    A 20 July report by the Russian Interfax News Agency (and picked up by the BBC Monitoring Service) states that Osama ibn Laden allocated one million dollars for the destabilisation of the Tajikistan Government. The report says that the money is for propaganda work, for purchasing weapons and ammunition, and also for carrying out terrorist acts against prominent Tajik statesmen who want Tajikistan to become closer to Russia. The report also alleges that a meeting of representatives of un-named Islamic organisations was held in Quetta on 24 June wherein it was decided that funding would be provided to the branch of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Tajikistan for the same purpose.
    Naveed Butt further states, "Ever since the demise of the Soviet Union, a decade ago, the Muslims of the region have been increasingly turning towards Islam to lead their lives. At first the regimes in the region underestimated the desire of the ummah to be ruled by Islam and were content to ignore it. But their attitude drastically changed when the Muslims of the region began to reject the kufr capitalist systems implemented upon them and to demand the return of the Khilafah State. Instead of engaging with their people in intellectual discourse to defend their capitalist way of life, the regimes of central Asia under the tutelage of the US and Russia chose to fight the Islamic revival with brutal suppression of the Muslim population. This included mass arrests, torture and killings of innocent Muslims and activists of Islamic groups whose only crime is a desire to be ruled by Islam. The brutal stance adopted by the West and their agents is not at all surprising, as they are unable to defeat the Islamic creed and its thoughts intellectually and have resorted to propaganda and violence in order to curb the yearning of the Muslim Ummah worldwide to live under the Islamic way of life by re-establishing the Khilafah State."
    "It is well known that Hizb ut-Tahrir is a political party that takes Islam as its ideology, and that it is not a militant organisation. The party works throughout the Muslim world to resume the Islamic way of life by re-establishing the Islamic Khilafah. The party adheres to the sharia in all aspects of its work, taking its methodology from that which the Prophet (s.a.w.) used to establish the first Islamic State in Medina. Rasool Allah (s.a.w.) limited his pre-hijra struggle against the Quraish to the intellectual and political and domains. Today, Jihad is only to be undertaken against the kuffar, as in Kashmir or Israel, and not against the regimes in Muslim countries."
