Hizb ut Tahrir: Protect the Honourable Women of Al-Sham

Hizb ut Tahrir Organises a Critical Women's Seminar: "Hasten to Establish the Khilafah to Protect the Honourable Women of Al-Sham"

Under the support of the eminent scholar of Usool, skilled politician and prominent thinker Ata Ibnu Khalil Abu Arrashtah, Amir of Hizb ut Tahrir, the Hizb will hold a vital women's seminar on the 27th of April 2013 in Amman, Jordan to speak of the heart-breaking plight that the women and children of Syria live and to present effective solutions to bring an urgent end to the massacres executed by the tyrants of Ash-Sham. This unique, unprecedented event, entitled "Hasten to Establish the Khilafah to Protect the Honourable Women of Al-Sham" is the first high-profile women's only gathering aimed at focussing world attention specifically on the horrendous scale of suffering and brutality endured by Syria's women and children at the hand of the mass-murderer Bashar Al-Assad and his Kufr Ba'athist regime. The seminar will host a large audience of journalists, distinguished influential women, representatives of organisations, and will also invite Syrian women from Jordan, including some from the Zaatari refugee camp to attend. It will also consist of 3 main talks, a video containing testimonies from Syrian women regarding the tribulations and ordeals they have suffered, a panel discussion with high-profile women from Hizb ut Tahrir, and a press-conference.

The opening speech will be from the Women's Section of the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir that will highlight the failure to date of the Muslim governments and international community to offer any credible solution to bring an end to the living-hell that the women of Syria have been subjected to under Assad. As well as their initiatives and missions have simply bought the Syrian regime time to pursue its campaign of terror and slaughter and violate the honour of the noble women of Al-Sham. The talk will emphasize that it is the Khilafah system alone, based purely upon Islam, it is the only system that views the life and dignity of women as priceless, places the protection of their blood and honour as a priority, and appreciates the heavy obligation of the state to guard their safety without hesitation or delay. The second talk will be delivered by a Muslim sister from Syria who will provide detailed, graphic eye-witness accounts of the abduction, torture, rape, and murder of women and children at the hands of the merciless Syrian regime as well as highlight the desperate situation in the Syrian refugee camps where women and children battle for survival, living in inhumane, appalling conditions. She will also emphasize how the women of Al-Sham have been abandoned by the heartless rulers of the Muslim world who have sat as idle spectators to the killing fields next door without mobilizing a single soldier in her defence. The final talk will be delivered by a female member of Hizb ut Tahrir Jordan who will raise a call to Muslims globally to increase their efforts to establish the Khilafah urgently as well as deliver a heartfelt appeal to the sons of the Muslim armies to fulfil their great Islamic responsibility of defending their sisters in Al-Sham without delay and to give the Nusrah (material support) to Hizb ut Tahrir for the establishment of this noble state that will bring the shade of guardianship to the region under the Rule of Allah (swt).

We call the media to attend this important and most pressing of seminars that will not only provide a platform for the heart-breaking stories, hopes and dreams of some of the most vulnerable victims of this brutal conflict to be heard but will present a sound vision to bring their suffering to an end. The event will be streamed through the live broadcast of The Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir.

Gordon Campbell: On How Obama’s Supreme Court Choice Says Everything (Bad) About His Presidency

Nothing has epitomised the presidency of Barack Obama quite like his Supreme Court nominees. Time and again, Republican presidents will blithely nominate right wing ideological extremists (Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas) who only sometimes misfire and turn out to be liberals in disguise (David Souter). Yet Obama has consistently skipped over the judicially qualified liberals and gone for a succession of centrists... More>>
