Central African Republic: Genocide of Muslim Women/Children

The Women of Hizb ut Tahrir Announce Campaign Highlighting the Genocide of Muslim Women and Children in the Central African Republic (CAR)

The Women’s Section of the Central Media office of Hizb ut Tahrir has launched a series of actions to raise international awareness about the horrific plight facing the Muslim women and children of Central African Republic (CAR). It is part of a global campaign organized by the party entitled, “Who Will Support the Muslims of Central Africa”. Since 1st of February 2014, a diabolical and systematic campaign of genocide has been unleashed upon the helpless Muslims of the region whilst the media and international community place a virtual blanket over the true extent of the violence faced by those identified as being Muslim. Female and minor members of the Muslims living in the areas of Bangui have been the target of unspeakable acts of barbarity. UNICEF officials in the region "are horrified by the cruelty and impunity with which children are being killed and mutilated" On the 14th of February, a UN report stated that 133 children have been murdered and maimed. On the 3rd of January 2014, international news agencies reported the beheading of 2 children amongst the numerous documented accounts of similar acts against Muslims. UNICEF officials have stated children are being “directly targeted because of their religion in atrocious revenge attacks,” (as reported by Manuel Fontaine, Souleymane Diabate). Human Rights Watch Emergency Director Peter Bouckaert informed the BBC World Service on the 9th of February that entire neighborhoods have been “completely emptied of their Muslim population. Their homes are being systematically taken down…..so the very evidence of their existence in this country is being erased." Amnesty International reported a massacre on the 10th of February in Bouguere, west of Bangui where an 11 year old Muslim girl was found. Donatella Rovera, Senior Crisis Response Adviser at Amnesty International explained “The girl was crouching in a corner….terrified and could barely speak……she had not drunk or eaten anything (for four days)……she was the only Muslim survivor in the village.” According to estimates, women and children make up the largest percentage of people affected in this crisis, which increased in intensity in the Central African Republic.

Muslim world leaders in typical historical fashion have abandoned all sense of moral duty to protect innocent Muslim civilians, as was the case in Bosnia, Myanmar, Syria and others. Their consistent lack of political will reveals their status as slaves of Western interests and reflects the titanic divide between the thoughts and sentiments of the international Muslim population and the despots that rule them.

The women of Hizb ut Tahrir will not stay silent to these great crimes against our sisters and their families. Over the coming weeks the Women of the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir will be engaging in an intensive media campaign to expose the crimes against the Muslim women and children of CAR and will call to account the current invalid Muslim leaderships for their negligence in the matter of acting decisively and swiftly in their responsibility to protect the blood of Muslims internationally. We, women of Hizb ut Tahrir, will reinforce our firm message that it is only with the re-establishment of the Khilafah – the Islamic political system – with it alone that Muslims can be saved from bloodshed and systematic abuse. The Khilafah led by an independent just Khalifah, free from the shackles of Western servitude will not have armies standing idle while the Muslim Ummah bleeds. Such was the rule under the Khilafah of Uthman (ra) who unified and mobilized the vast resources of the Muslim world to protect the previously unstable North African region that was prone to attack and exploitation by the colonial ambitions of the Byzantine and Persian Empires. It is the re-establishment of this Khilafah alone, in its return which will provide a safe sanctuary to all oppressed and persecuted Muslims in the entire world.

“…if they seek help from you in the matter of the religion, then it is your duty to help (them)…” [TMQ 8: 72]
