Press Release: US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel’s Pakistan visit
Today US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel arrived in Islamabad, Pakistan, on a one-day visit. His schedule was to meet the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Army Chief, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Interior Minister, Finance Minister and Chief Minister of Punjab. After the recent changes in the Pakistan’s armed forces' leadership, it was the first visit of any high level American official to Pakistan.
Hizb ut-Tahrir condemns the visit of the US Defense Secretary’s visit of Pakistan. It expresses its deep regret that by meeting him, the political and military leadership violated the Islamic Shariah which forbids any such alliance with a Kafir Harbi (Billigerent state), which has acted in open enmity through killing Muslims, dishonoring our women, desecrating the Quran and occupying our lands. Allah سبحانہ و تعالٰی says: فَمَنِ اعْتَدَى عَلَيْكُمْ فَاعْتَدُواْ عَلَيْهِ بِمِثْلِ مَا اعْتَدَى عَلَيْكُمْ “Then whoever transgresses against you, you transgress likewise against him. ” (Surah Al Baqarah 2:194).
America, whose hands are soaked with the blood of the Muslims, attacked the Salalah check post martyring our soldiers, conducts drone attacks in our tribal areas killing Muslims as well as violating our sovereignty and attacks our military and civilian targets in order to continue the war of Fitna, using its spy-assassin Raymond Davis network.
