Tahir Yuldashev, amir (leader) of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan emerges from a meeting last year with the amir of Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan (TTP; Taliban Movement of Pakistan), Hakimullah Mehsud.
The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), a group composed of several thousand fighters that is led by Tahir Yuldashev, who is also known as Muhammad Tahir "Faruq (Farouq)", has released a statement about the ongoing attacks on Uzbeks by some Kyrgyz groups and communal tensions that these attacks have caused. The English translation is run below without edits.
The IMU is based primarily in the Waziristan region of Pakistan and is allied with Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful:
(يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَى وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ) 13 سورة الحجرات"O you men! surely We have created you of a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other; surely the most honorable of you with Allah is the one among you most careful (of his duty); surely Allah is Knowing, Aware" Sura Alhujarat / 13
Our oppressed Muslim brothers and sisters!
The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan brings deepest condolences to the oppressed Muslim community in south Kyrgyzstan.
This tragedy is the result of another bloody conspiracy of the heresy, ruling the world. The ordinary Muslims fall victims to the fire, initiated by the disbelievers.
The instigators of this conspiracy are Jews, Christians, USA, Russia and other "black forces".
(يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ) 9 سورة الصف
"They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths but Allah will perfect His light, though the unbelievers may be averse". Sura Alsaf / 8
Whatever their efforts are, they are not able to put out Allah’s light!
These days the people of the world witnessed the intrigues of aggressors from USA, Russia and their puppet regimes, and also got to know the bitter fruits of democracy - “the regulations of heresy”.
Simple women, children and old men became the victims of this infamous, mean and bloody adventure. We are the witnesses of that how entire peoples become victims to the power contests of the contemporary “pharaoh's”.
Do not wait for help from USA, do not wait for help from Russia or do not wait for help from UN! The real help is to follow the rules of Islam, which our Lord by His favor granted it to us and to implement its laws into all spheres of our life.
Our real salvation is to return to our genuine religion and follow its rules.
The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan urges all Mavarounnahra Muslims, regardless of nationality, to turn away from the mundane fusses and to embark on the path of jihad against the enemies of Islam!
Allah in the Koran made jihad an obligation.
(كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْقِتَالُ وَهُوَ كُرْهٌ لَكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَنْ تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَنْ تُحِبُّوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ) 216 سورة البقرة"Fighting is enjoined on you, and h is an object of dislike to you; and it may be that you dislike a thing while it is good for you, and it may be that you love a thing while it is evil for you, and Allah knows, while you do not know" Sura Baqara / 216
Allah in the Koran speaks:
(إِلَّا تَنْفِرُوا يُعَذِّبْكُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا وَيَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ وَلَا تَضُرُّوهُ شَيْئًا ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ) 39 التوبة
"If you do not go forth, He will chastise you with a painful chastisement and bring in your place a people other than you, and you will do Him no harm; and Allah has power over all things" Sura Altawba / 39
And the prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said:
"When you deal with interest, and hold fast to the tail of the cow, and become contented with agriculture, and you leave Jihad in the Way of Allaah, Allaah will permit your humiliation and will not lift it from you until you return to your deen".
All reasons for those misfortunes, to which all Moslems of the present day are mentioned, here!
Thus, we won't remove the influence of American and Russian occupiers on our earth, until we establish the united Islamic state, heresy will play by our religion, by our conscience, by honor, by rights and by dignity as it will wish.
The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan will do its best, by the will of Allah, to assist all Muslims of Central Asia and Kyrgyzstan in particular.
Peace, blessing and mercy of Allah be upon you!
