An SMS from the Hizbut Tahrir

The Hizbut Tahrir is constantly generating a tirade of unwanted and unwarranted messages on mobile phones.


Letter July 25, 2011

ISLAMABAD: This is with reference to your report of July 25 titled “Intelligence warning: Hizbut-Tahrir planned ‘Arab Spring’ in Pakistan”. The Hizbut Tahrir is constantly generating a tirade of unwanted and unwarranted messages on mobile phones throughout the country.

As a customer of a certain telecom company, I have the right to not want such spam text messages and my privacy is being violated and it is a shame that nothing is done about this. I have sent several complaints to my phone company and it is either unable to or unwilling to take action against those who send such mass messages. Obviously, this cannot be happening without some employee(s) passing on to Hizb members details and telephone numbers of the phone company’s users. What else is one to do? Perhaps I should try my luck with the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority? But the PTA also is not really known for taking any measures to safeguard the rights of consumers.

I don't get their messages but since I've read how they wish to cleanse the system and have put forth an impressive practical manifesto to rid the country of corruption, the aggrieved SMS recipients best bet of getting PTA or any other organisation here to work properly and addresshis issues is to pray that HT does succeed in coming into power, we have had enough of these pseudoemocracies and army dictatorships anyhow
