Kazakh ban on Hizb ut-Tahrir will not prevent the return of the Islamic Caliphate


London, UK, March 29 – Hizb ut-Tahrir, the non-violent Islamic political party that is spearheading the global work for the return of the Islamic Khilafah [Caliphate], believes that the Kazakh government’s banning of the party will not prevent the party from soon realising its goal.

Despite knowing full well that Hizb ut-Tahrir rejects violence, militancy or armed struggle as a method to re-establish the Islamic State, the Kazakh regime, following the example of other repressive regimes in Central Asia, has banned the party. In recent weeks and months, the Kazakh government has alleged that Hizb ut-Tahrir is linked to terrorism and has undertaken a brutal campaign of raids, arrests and intimidation in a vain attempt to thwart Hizb ut-Tahrir’s continuing intellectual and political work in Kazakhstan.

Commenting on the Kazakh ban, Dr Imran Waheed, the Representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, said, “In banning Hizb ut-Tahrir, the Kazakh government has illustrated its weakness and naiveté - despite such bans across Central Asia we continue to grow in strength and popularity in the region and the return of the Islamic Khilafah [Caliphate] is on the horizon.”

“We challenge the Kazakh regime to confront us in an intellectual debate rather than hiding behind banning and censorship.”

Notes to Editors:

Hizb ut-Tahrir is an independent Islamic political party. The party works throughout the Islamic world, including Kazakhstan, to resume the Islamic way of life by re-establishing the Islamic Khilafah [Caliphate]. The party adheres to Islamic law in all aspects of its work and considers violence or armed struggle against the regime, as a method to re-establish the Islamic State, to be forbidden by Islamic law. In the Western world, the party seeks to explain the Islamic ideology to Muslims, to create a dialogue with Western thinkers and to present a positive image of Islam to Western society.
