Under various platforms and banners, radical Islam is steadily expanding in the European nations, especially in the United Kingdom, Germany and Sweden. According to counterterrorism experts, if this growth is allowed to continue, European countries shall face severe challenges from the radical Muslims, and crusaders of jihad and Caliphate. According to recent report, Hizb Ut Tahrir (HT), which holds to the belied that it is a religious duty and obligation for Muslims to seek expansion and establish a caliphate has been gradually expanding its network in Sweden by recruiting unknown number of members. While HT is expanding in Europe, including Britain, the rise and expansion of another radical Islamic outfit – Muslim Brotherhood in North America is a matter of grave concern. Las enforcement agencies in Sweden say, the country has already become a ticking time bomb of Islamist violence.
Despite the fact of Hizb Ut Tahrir being outlawed in a number of countries in the world, including Bangladesh, it has been allowed to operate in the United Kingdom and few other European and Western nations. In fact, Britain has become the epicenter of the activities of radical Islamic groups including Hizb Ut Tahrir, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah. Western globalist leaders and their supporters are possibly ignorant of the threat posed by radical Islam and hundreds of thousands of radical Muslim would penetrate into those nations in the West by taking advantage of liberal immigrant policy and Joe Biden-type formula of welcoming illegal immigrants with widely opened arms.
Breitbart news in a report said, Hizb Ut Tahrir, which operates in several European countries, including the UK and Denmark, has been recruiting new members in the no-go suburbs of Stockholm and has organized private religious lessons for its followers.
According to Swedish broadcaster SVT, Hizb Ut Tahrir has been distributing leaflets at many homes in the Rinkeby area, with the agenda of encouraging Muslims in joining the group. Locals in Rinkeby has lodged complaints with Swedish police asking whether the contents of the leaflets are legal. Martin Marmgren, group manager for the police in Järva, commented on the pamphlets, saying: “Some people are worried. This is an extremist message from an extremist organization”.
Hizb Ut Tahrir has been operating in Sweden since 2011 and has been running for years in some other European countries, such as neighboring Denmark. As the group opposes democracy, back in 2015, Hizb Ut Tahrir called upon the Danish Muslims to “abstain from voting”, after claiming democracy was not compatible with Islam. It also opposes participation of women in politics and social activities.
In a leaflet distributed in 2015 amongst the Danish voters, Hizb Ut Tahrir said: We are committed to being active participants in our society, but it has to be on Islam’s terms, without compromising our own principles and values. Democracy is fundamentally incompatible with Islam, and it is a sinking ship.
British authorities in 2018, accused Hizb Ut Tahrir of using children to spread extremist literature that provided justification for suicide bombings and stated that women who leave home “uncovered” [without burqa] should be punished. It may be mentioned here that, in East London in Britain, has particularly turned into the epicenter of radical Islamism, with hundreds and thousands of immigrants – mostly Muslims applying Islamic sharia rule in their lifestyle. Mosques and Islamic centers in London are used for radicalizing Muslims and even recruiting jihadists.
