An army brigadier facing court martial for allegedly being a member of banned Hizbut Tahrir (HuT) organization and encouraging army persons to join the outfit has raised objections to the formation of the court meant to hear his case.

Brigadier (retd) Ali Khan, through his lawyer, Colonel (retd) Inam ur Raheem, in an application filed with Lahore High Court (LHC) stated that the five member trial court had not been convened in accordance with the rules of Pakistan Army Act.

Justice Khawaja Imtiaz Ahmed of the LHC issued notices to the defence secretary for May 14 as next date of hearing.

Brigadier Ali has maintained that according to the Pakistan Army Act, a charge sheet needs to be prepared against the accused person and it is then presented before the convening authority, the area corps commander.

The world and Muslims have converted into "Nation States" wheras khilafat endeavoured to be "One Nation Empire".

With so many power centres in the islamic world from Riyadh to Tehran to Istanbul and Cairo who will lead the UMMAH into khilafat.Even a rare ideological model is inconceivable

Small adventures like one in the article will lead to seed of crisis to seed of another crisis.

Almost 100year has gone since the end of khilafat.The Islamic world last century is no different than the 13th century crisis where the mongols and tartarians overwhelmed the muslims rulers.

The present war on terorism will last as long as the endeavour of khilafat ideology is alive.The eventual winner will be the real musalman indeed!!!!!
