بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
All Praise be to Allah, and may peace and blessings be upon the final Prophet, Muhammad, and all his family and companions. To proceed:
My respected Muslim brothers,
Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
Today as the Ummahperforms the Sunnah of Ibrahim alaihi-salam, I would like to wish all Muslims a blessed Eid-ul-Adha and give special congratulations to all those performing the blessed rites of Hajj in the House of Allah. On this auspicious occasion, I would like to reach out to the Muslim Ummah in general and in particular to the people of Pakistan and the Mujahideen there, with an important message and some advice.
To the Muslim Ummah
As the servant of the Mujahideen, I on behalf of all the Mujahideen, on this day of sacrifice, would like to reassure Muslims everywhere, especially those living under oppressive regimes and kafir governments, that we will, to the best of our abilities, strive to alleviate their suffering and continue our Qitaal fi Sabilillah till there is no more fitna (kufr)on the Earth and the Deen becomes purely for Allah alone. We are firm in our belief that the Ummah is one body, and it is not possible for a part of it to be in pain and for us to be insensitive to it. The pain, anguish, and tyranny inflicted upon the Ummah is our pain, and we will continue our Jihad and Qitaal till we are rid of it.
On this day of sacrifice, I would like to remind the Ummah that our suffering in the last century, the fall of the Caliphate, the rifts created between the Muslims, the oppression and injustices committed against us and our state of humiliation are all due to our selfish rulers whose loyalties lie with the Jews and the Christians. I urge all Muslims to rise up against these agents of the kuffar who have sold their consciences; to rise above their differences and unite under the banner of Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen Mullah Mohammad Umar Mujahid (HA) and work towards the revival of the Caliphate – a dream awaiting fulfilment
To those Affected by War, the Pashtun People, and those Living in the Tribal Areas
On this day when the Muslim Ummah is celebrating Eid, a majority of the helpless Pashtun people and those hailing from the tribal areas are living a life devoid of these joys, languishing in camps. It is indeed their sacrifices that have heralded a bright dawnof hope for the Ummah. It is your support of the truth and sacrifices in its cause that will restore the honour of the Muslims. And in doing so, you have indeed revived the history of the Sahaba (RA). Your continuous support for the oppressed Arab, Uzbek and other Mujahideen and steadfastness upon the hardships of Jihad and migration in its cause have given sleepless nights to the kuffar and their frontline allies and rubbed their noses in the dirt. Through your words and actions, you have proven to be the frontline allies of Allah (SWT) and His Messenger (SAW). We are well aware of the injustices and atrocities committed against you throughout the country, in Karachi, Punjab and other cities. We are also aware of the torture inflicted in the jails upon the Mujahideen and Ansar from Swat, Bajaur, Mohmand, Darra Adam Khel, Orakzai, Waziristan and other areas. Your sacrifices are for Allah (SWT) and only He can reward you for them. But I assure you, on behalf of the Mujahideen, that we are not heedless of your conditions, even for a moment. We are trying to the best of our abilities to solve your problems and to free all the imprisoned Mujahideen,so that you may all return safely to your homes and live with honour. We pray that Allah gives us success in our objectives.
To the People of Pakistan and Regarding the Future of the Country
There is no doubt that whenever a calamity befalls the Islamic world, the Muslim population [of Pakistan]openly supports the Muslims and stands firmly against Kufr. Allah has blessed this land with innumerable resources, but due to many problems you are still languishing in poverty and deprivation. Be it the shortage of water, provincial or ethnic inequity or the poor distribution of natural resources, the people have only suffered, and this is largely due to the selfish, greedy, conscience sellers rulers who have wronged a population of 180 million only to satisfy their unending desires. And behind all this are theinstitutions of kufr (such as the IMF and World Bank), America, Europe and other countries, as well as a handful of people ruling over us from the government, civil and military establishments who have deceived a population of 180 million people; a people who harbour in their hearts love and fervour for this Deen. However, today Alhamdulillah these very rulers are under siege in their country, and no longer safe anywhere. In such times, it is incumbent upon you all to aid Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan in every way possible so that we may rid ourselves of these rulers as soon as possible.
As for the future of Pakistan, it should be clear that the just treatment of provinces and ethnicities and the equitable distribution of resources is not possible under the policies of the IMF, World Bank or G8, whose only strategy is to impose more taxes, GST and Carbon Tax, so that the suffering of the people is only multiplied. The solution to our problems lies only in the Shariah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Pakistan will prove to be, Allah willing, a stronghold of the Islamic Caliphate. The wealth of gold and silver hidden in the mountain ranges spanning across the country, the millions of acres of land and the flowing majestic rivers have all been bestowed by Allah (SWT) to the 180 million people of Pakistan, and it is they who must benefit from them.
To the Governmentand Security Agencies
We are believing men and Mujahideen, and our war against you is one based on creed, and it will continue as such. You have repeatedly duped the Muslim masses, sometimes by presenting democracy as a just system of governance and at other times misleading them by confusing religion with democracy. But if any true believers stood up against you, you unleashed a wave of barbarism upon them, as you did in the tribal areas, Lal Masjid, Swat, Buner and the Abbottabad operation. You are responsible for the bloodshed of innocent civilians in Afghanistan and for handing over Arab, Uzbek and other Mujahideen to the kuffar only so that you may please their leaders. To serve the interests of America and the kuffar, you have thrown away your lives in Peshawar, Waziristan, Swat and many other places. Our war with you will continue and soon you will be humiliated and disgraced in this very life, and Kufr too will turn its back on you. For they have used you and can no longer see any strength remaining in you. We, the Mujahideen of Islam will continue this war with the spirit of our faith and courage, and by the grace and mercy of Allah, and no one can take these weapons away from us.
With Regardsto the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
There is no doubt that the Muslim Ummah is one body, and as Muslims we do not accept the divisions of the Durand Line or any borders. We are all loyal soldiers of Ameer-ul-Mu’mineen Mullah Mohammad Umar Mujahid (HA). He is our leader, guide and Ameer. The services and sacrifices made by Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan have been proven over time and our association with them will only continue to strengthen.
News of Jihad andthe Mujahideen
InJanuary 2008, respected Ameer Baitullah Masood, may Allah have mercy on him, declared open war against the Pakistani government. Since then, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan has launched a openwar in Dir, Swat, Buner and other tribal areas as well as the adjoining Frontier Region etc. Although the Mujahideen withdrew from certain areas as part of their war strategy, they are in high spirits and continuously attacking the American Puppet (Pakistan) Army, causing them heavy losses. Expanding the scope of war, we employed guerrilla tacticsin the Frontier Regions. The targets includedlocal military as well as the American offices, embassies, and bases in the cities of Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi and Peshawar, while in the tribal areas, their personnel continue to come under the attack of the Mujahideen. Among these [operations] were the ones on GHQ, Parade Lane, Mehran Air Base, American Consulate and the PC Hotel. Also targeted were IG Frontier Corps and numerous brigadiers and ministers. In the coming days, the Mujahideen plan even more well-orchestrated attacks. Due to continuous attacks on the Army carried out in Chitral, Dir, Swat and other tribal areas, many areas have returned to our control. The Mujahideen are under the strict guidance of the scholars of the movement, who ensure that all work is done in line with Islam and the Shariah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). All matters are resolved in an agreeable manner and in light of the Shariah of the Prophet (SAW).
In the end, I would like to advise all Muslims in general and the Mujahideen in particular to adhere strictly to the Shariah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and show no lethargy in aiding the Deen; to resolve all misunderstandings and display utmost unity. The armies of the kuffar are well on their way to defeat, and as an exit strategy will make all last ditch efforts to create rifts amongst the Ummah. The Ummah should be cautious of such traps and make sure that the kuffar do not succeed in their attempts.
On this blessed day, the Muslim Ummah should make special dua for their oppressed Muslim brothers and especially remember to pray for the Mujahideen engaged in Jihad against the kuffar.
The Servant of the Mujahideen
