Hizb ut-Tahrir leader Burhan Hanif tells Aussie Muslims to 'shun democracy'

Indeed. Kafirs have no right to make laws, only Allah can do that. And no infidel has the right to rule over Muslims…..


  • Australia a ‘Godforsaken country’ – group
  • Secular democracy is ‘un-Islamic’

    LEADERS of the global Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir have called on Australian Muslims to spurn secular democracy and Western notions of moderate Islam and join the struggle for a transnational Islamic state.

    Briton Salim Atchia from global Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir addresses the conference yesterday

    British Hizb ut-Tahrir leader Burhan Hanif told participants at a conference in western Sydney yesterday that democracy is “haram” (forbidden) for Muslims, whose political engagement should be be based purely on Islamic law.

    “We must adhere to Islam and Islam alone,” Mr Hanif told about 500 participants attending the convention in Lidcombe.

    “We should not be conned or succumb to the disingenuous and flawed narrative that the only way to engage politically is through the secular democratic process. It is prohibited and haram.”

    He said democracy was incompatible with Islam because the Koran insisted Allah was the sole lawmaker, and Muslim political involvement could not be based on “secular and erroneous concepts such as democracy and freedom”.

    His view was echoed by an Australian HT official, Wassim Dourehi, who told the conference Muslims should not support “any kafir (non-believer) political party”, because humans have no right to make laws.

    Mr Dourehi also urged Muslims to spurn the concept of moderate Islam promoted by governments in the West, including in “this godforsaken country” of Australia.

    “We need to reject this new secular version of Islam,” he said. “It is a perverted concoction of Western governments.

    “It is a perversion that seeks to wipe away the political aspects of Islam and localise our concerns. We must reject it and challenge the proponents of this aberration of Islam.”

    The conference, which followed the theme The struggle for Islam in the West’ was the first major event held by the Australian branch of HT since a seminar in 2007 which coincided with calls for the group to be banned.

    HT is outlawed in much of the Middle East but operates legally in more than 40 countries, campaigning for the establishment of a caliphate or Islamic state.

    HT’s platform rejects the use of violence in its quest for an Islamic state, but supports the military destruction of Israel.

    But the group’s presence sparked angry protests outside as members of the Australian Protectionist Party (APP) yelled anti-Islam chants.

    The APP met in a small park to express their need to “protect” the Australian way of life.

    Conflict between the APP and HT amounted to an exchange of words, anti-Islam chants and the occasional drive-by of young Muslim men yelling obscenities from their car at the APP protesters.

    One passer-by, a young Muslim man, yelled at the APP group: “You people have absolutely no idea”, sparking a fiery exchange of accusations and finger-pointing.

    Nick Folkes, the Sydney organiser for the APP, believes that the HT should be banned in Australia and thinks that practising sharia law should be illegal in Australia.

    “Sharia law is an archaic legal system that treats woman as second-class citizens,” he said.

    “We’re not asking them to change their skin colour or religion. But if they come here, they must reject sharia law.”

    From JW:

    The irresistible question: If Australia is so “god-forsaken,” why don’t you forsake it, too?

    Of course, it’s not that simple. The goal of jihad in all its forms is the imposition of Islamic law anywhere and everywhere. And that’s supposed to make Australia seem less god-forsaken — just as it has done such wonders for Somalia, Pakistan, Gaza, Iran, Yemen, Banda Aceh… you get the idea.

    The Australian Protectionist Party said Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir have no place in society.

    1. This article is 100% correct about the non reporting of Islamic crime. It happened to me and it has happened to my neighbours in south western Sydney. 12 months after my friend’s son was stabled in the back by cowardly muslims (the boy was trying to protect the girls) nothing has ever been done. This is in spite of the ambulance being called, witness statements to police, assurances by police – nothing. The family cannot get any compensation because the event has never gone to court.

      We are sitting ducks out on the streets of South Western Sydney and who cares? The police don’t need mega million dollar equipment to solve crime what they need to to kick Muslim officers out of the force – who – change and alter things on the computers which is what happened to me – what they do need are more police in a visible presence and full disclosure to the public, firstly as a warning to the people about the danger that lurks in ever street, and to name names and the people will then speak out and give the police information.

      In Bankstown, it is rare, rare, rare to see cops on the beat. They are sitting in their new building, with the most modern equipment, with their University degrees, working all the new fangled equipment, and none of this is helping the victims nor bring the criminals to justice. This must stop. We, the people deserve to know what is going on. We have no guns to defend ourselves against those who do, but at least give us up-to-date information to better protect us from this scum of the earth.

      I called the police to a trader in Bankstown who had taken 600 dollars from my bank account instead of 60 dollars which was the purchase amount. She wanted to give me an IOU. I paid in cash from my key card – and I wanted cash back. I waited in that shop for over one hour and there was no police. Nowhere to be found. It was the most uncomfortable hour I have spent in a long time. Eventually when she knew the police may come, she gave me the cash money back. But this took two phone calls in front of her that I really was calling the police.

      Imagine how this would have been if I had reported a stabbing, or an elderley person set upon by these swine (and this is not uncommon). I can relate hundreds of stories from our suburb alone. Our police force is defeating us – not the Muslims. They are cowards. I have seen the Kowtow when they knew the jig was up. They know the police wont come. The coppers are like Keystone Kops. All bags of air.

    2. I wish Hizb ut-Tahrir and those like him would wake up and live in peace with all humanity. LIVE AND LET LIVE. Is it any wonder some people are ‘racist’? When Hizb ut-Tahrir peaches his intolerance, of course people are going to look at him and his followers as unacceptable, as a threat, for that is how he is seeing others. It is they who are spurning hatred in our society. Such a waste of life, to live it as he does.

    3. To the muslims who wish to force sharia and the teachings of a criminal pedophile on us. .. leave or die. Thesesa is correct – muslims are cowardly scum – the PC fools who allow the muslims to behave like spoilt thugs are the ones we need to control!!

    4. Time for Australians to shun islam and muslims – (an islamophobic hate crime, of course).

    5. Hizbut Tahrir shows the radical version of Islamic society. I can only say that they are not compatible with Islam itself. Islam is peace, tolerant, and beautiful..

    6. “Islam is peace, tolerant, and beautiful…”

      I’m holding my breath, Noor.

      Please quote sura, verse, link and btw: which Koran are you reading?

      Last time I checked my Koran said ‘kill the unbelievers wherever you find them unless they pay the jiziya with willing submission’.

      Did you mess with the Koran and change the meaning?

    7. islam is doomed, Noor, regardless of how its deluded followers choose to badge engineer it.

    8. So peaceful!

      “The Sultan of Java, al-Malik az-Zahir, is…a lover of theologians. He is constantly engaged in warring for the Faith [against the infidels] and in raiding expeditions…His subjects also take a pleasure in warring for the Faith and voluntarily accompany him on his expeditions. They have the upper hand over all the infidels in their vicinity, who pay them a poll-tax to secure peace.”–ibn Battuta, Travels in Asia and Africa, 1325-1354 p. 274

      “The sword played a major role in spreading Islam in the past, and it is the sword that preserves Islam today. Islam relies upon Jihad in spreading the religion…Spreading Islam by means of the sword is a collective duty incumbent upon all Muslims.”–Encyclopedia of Islam Section 11 p. 3245

      “Islam views the world as though it were bipolarised in two opposing camps-Dar us-Salm facing Darul-Harb–the first one is submissive to the Lord in co-operating with God’s purpose to establish peace, order and such other preconditions of human development, but the second one, on the other hand, is engaged in perpetuating defiance of the same Lord. Such a state of affairs which engages any one in rebellion against God’s will is termed as “Fitna”–which word literally means test or trial. The term “Fitna ” refers us to misconduct on the part of a man who establishes his own norms and expects obedience from others, thereby usurping God’s authority–who alone is sovereign…Sura Toba Verse 9, “Fight those who believe not in Allah, nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by [the] lord and His Apostle nor acknowledge the religion of truth (even if they are) of the people of the book,( i.e. Jews and Christians) until they pay Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.”
      – Allah Bukhsh K. Brohi: Preface to “The Quranic Concept of War”

      “If Mahmud…had gone to India once more, he would have brought under his sword all the Brahmans of Hind who, in that vast land, are the cause of the continuance of the laws of infidelity and of the strength of idolators; he would have cut off the heads of two or three hundred thousand Hindu chiefs. He would not have returned his Hindu-slaughtering sword to its scabbard until the whole of Hind had accepted Islam. For Mahmud was a Shafiite, and according to Imam Shafii the decree for Hindus is Islam or death, that is to say, they should either be put to death or accept Islam. It is not lawful to accept jiziya from Hindus who have neither a prophet nor a revealed book.”—Ziauddin Barani’s Fatwa-i-Jahãndãri

      “And kings will not be able to perform the duty of protecting the Faith unless, for the sake of God and the Prophet’s creed, they overthrow and uproot kufr and kãfiri (infidelity), shirk (setting partners to God) and the worship of idols. But if the total uprooting of idolatry is not possible owing to the firm roots of kufr and the large number of kãfirs and mushriks (infidels and idolaters), the kings should at least strive to insult, disgrace, dishonour and defame the mushrik and idol-worshipping Hindus, who are the worst enemies of God and the Prophet. The symptom of the kings being the protectors of religion is this:- When they see a Hindu, their eyes grow red and they wish to bury him alive; they also desire to completely uproot the Brahmans, who are the leaders of kufr and shirk and owning to whom kufr and shirk are spread and the commandments of kufr are enforced…Owing to the fear and terror of the kings of Islam, not a single enemy of God and the Prophet can drink water that is sweet or stretch his legs on his bed and go to sleep in peace.”—Ziauddin Barani’s Tãrîkh-i-Fîruzshãhî

      “Islam provides details for every facet of a person’s life, while this is not found in any other religion… [T]he Muslims attained political power over all the others by waging Jihaad. They fought for Allaah’s pleasure and conquered nation after nation, including the superpowers of the Romans and the Persians. They remained dominant over large areas of Europe, Asia, and Africa for many centuries. (These were the only continents known then). Even today the Muslims dominate large areas and will be able to dominate the rest if they unite, separate from the Kuffaar [Unbelievers] and wage Jihaad for Allah’s pleasure.”– Mufti Muhammad Aashiq Illahi Muhajir Madani’s Illuminating Discourses on the Noble Qur’an volume 4 pp. 285-286 (2003)

      “The word [Jihad] in simple usage means killing infidels for the supremacy of the word of God and cannot be interpreted otherwise unless there is an evidence for a different meaning.”– ’Ali bin Nafi’ al-Ulyani (1984 thesis)

      “Thus Islam was gradually transformed from a purely spiritual mission into a militant and punitive organization whose progress depended on booty from raids and revenue from the zakat tax…Abu Afak, a man of great age (reputedly 120 years) was killed because he had lampooned Mohammad. The deed was done by Salem b. Omayr at the behest of the Prophet, who had asked, “Who will deal with this rascal for me?” The killing of such an old man moved a poetess, Asma b. Marwan, to compose disrespectful verses about the Prophet, and she too was assassinated.”– Ali Dashti’s “23 Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammad”, page 97 & 100

      “Narrated AbuAyyub al-Ansari: AbuAyyub heard the Apostle of Allah say: Capitals will be conquered at your hands, and you will have to raise companies in large armies.”—Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14 Number 2519

      “(So obey not the disbelievers)…(but strive against them herewith) by means of the Qur’an (with a great endeavour) by the sword.”–Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs “Surat al-Furqan” [Q 25]

      “As for the disbelievers, I will chastise them with a terrible chastisement in this world, through being killed, taken captive and made to pay the jizya, and the Hereafter, in the Fire; they shall have no helpers, none to protect them from it.”–Tafsir al-Jalalayn “Surat al-Imran [Q 3]”

      “Fight them till there is no sedition, no idolatry, and the religion, all worship, is for God, alone and none are worshipped apart from Him; then if they desist, from idolatry, do not aggress against them. This is indicated by the following words, there shall be no enmity, no aggression through slaying or otherwise, save against evildoers. Those that desist, however, are not evildoers and should not be shown any enmity.”–Tafsir al-Jalalayn “Surat al-Baqarah [Q 2]

      “So fight them until there is no more shirk, and none is worshipped except Allaah alone with no partner or associate, and trials and calamities, which are disbelief and polytheism, are lifted from the slaves of Allaah on earth, and religion is all for Allaah alone, and so that obedience and worship will be devoted to Him alone and none else.”–ibn Jareer

      “Allaah commands us to fight the kuffaar so that there will be no fitnah, i.e., shirk, and the religion will all be for Allaah alone, i.e., the religion of Allaah will prevail over all other religions.”–ibn Kathir
      “Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.””–Sahih Bukhari Volume 1 Book 2 Number 24

      “Narrated Ibn ‘Umar that the Prophet said, “My livelihood is under the shade of my spear(1), and he who disobeys my orders will be humiliated by paying Jizya.” Footnote: (1) “Under the shade of my spear” means “from war booty.””–Dr. Muhammad Mohsin Khan, “The Translation of the Meanings of Sahih al-Bukhari Arabic-English Volume IV” Chapter 88 Page 104 [note: no longer found in online translations of Sahih Bukhari]

      “[The Prophet said] I was sent with the sword just before the Hour so that Allah is worshipped alone without partners. My provision was placed under the shadow of my spear, and those who defy my order were disgraced and humiliated, and he who imitates a people is one of them.”–Imam Ahmad

      The peace of the sword, the peace of slaughter and enslavement until subjugation under Sha’a’ir Allah and payment of jizya and kharaj and semi-enslavement under the dhimma!

    9. God forsaken Australia??? Then why are you all here. Don’t tell me you take out Australian Citizenship because you love Australia. I am a white Celtic Australian and I don’t want my country changed because of you Muslims. I wouldn’t dare do it in your country of origin. Don’t try and change our country, our culture or our religions. As the Merl Haggard song says, “When you try to change My Country, your walking on the fighting side of me”.
