In front of the Danish parliament, Hizb-ut Tahrir performed the Jumah prayer in commemoration of the mosque shooting victims in Christchurch, New Zealand. The terror-linked group then blamed politicians, in Denmark and throughout the West, for the deaths of the 50 worshipers, holding them directly responsible for what they call “the hateful and hostile climate towards Islam and Muslims.”
Khilafah The event showed that Muslims will not shy away from expressing their Islamic supremacism publicly despite continuous political attempts to constrain and stifle the call and practice of Islam in Denmark. The (eardrum-shattering and highly offensive to non-Muslims) Adhan Call to Prayer was heard loud and clear as it resounded through the streets of central Copenhagen.
Even though the press has desperately attempted to scale down or neglect the significance of the event and focused on everything but the message itself, Hizb ut Tahrir in Denmark managed to force itself on the public agenda and expose the role of the government and media in spurring hatred against Islam and Muslims in their struggle against Islam both domestically and in the Muslim world.
Hizb-ut Tahrir is an international Islamic extremist organization that aims to enforce an Islamic way of life on the West through sharia law. The organization is opposed to democratic governance and encourages fellow Muslims not to participate in politics or cast votes in elections. While banned in the majority of Arab countries (with only a few exceptions), as well as in Russia, Germany and China, the organization remains active in vast parts of Europe, including Scandinavia. Hizb ut-Tahrir’s Scandinavian headquarters is in Denmark, with smaller branches existing in Norway and Sweden. Its membership in Scandinavia remains undisclosed. Denmark has been looking into banning the group on several occasions.
