Shiraz Maher on Egypt arrests

Aug 5th, 2002, 11:56 AM

Assalam u Alaikum, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. The papers today, as well as BBC news 24 all seem to be carrying this story regarding these brothers currently held at the hands of the tyrannical Egyptian regime. Despite it being well known that Hizb ut Tahrir confines her struggle to the intellectual and political arenas the Egyptian regime along with scores of others continues to surpress and silence those who dare to speak out, often with the harshest of tools. When challenged to provide any proof of their claims, the Egyptians like all others have failed to produce even a single atoms weight. Instead these cowardly regimes shield themselves behind falsed, fabrication and lies. Just today the anti-terrorism court in Quetta has sentenced two members of Hizb ut-Tahrir, Umayr Maqsood and Khurram Ahmed, who in January raised the word of truth against government actions. Umayr, who recently completed his Masters in Telecommunications, and Khurram, who did graduated in Commerce, were arrested for treason while distributing leaflets, which exposed the government's pro-American policy over Afghanistan and Kashmir. Today in Pakistan a peaceful citizen has become hostage in his own homeland and the one who verbally accounts the ruler is charged for "terrorism and treason", whereas FBI and colonialist agents are allowed to roam freely. Pakistan's Antiterrorism Laws are no less than the "POTO" laws that are implemented in occupied Kashmir since both are engineered to safeguard the interests of the kuffar and to crush Islam. So the challenge to these fasiq tyrants lies bare. Produce evidence to fight creed with creed, thought with thought and ideology with ideology. Have these rulers got no fear of Allah (swt) and the last day when they will surely be brought to account for what they did?May Allah (swt) ensure the safe and prompt release of all Muslims who continue to languish in prison cells at the hand of the tyrants. Ameen.Here are some excerpts from Human Rights Watch regarding the despotic Egyptian regime.http://www.hrw.org/wr2k2/mena2.html ...violations of freedom of _expression, association, and assembly; widespread arrests of government opponents and prolonged detentions under state of emergency laws, in force almost continuously since 1967; and grossly unfair trials before military and state security courts....Thousands of alleged members or supporters of banned Islamist groups contuinued to be detained without trial.Police routinely tortured or ill-treated detainees, and there were three deaths between January and July.. During two months of pre-trial detention by the State Security Intelligence (SSI) in Cairo, al-Filali was reportedly subjected to "psychological pressure" to confess.

Wa Assalam u Alaikum,

Your brother in Islam,Shiraz Maher
