Hizb ut-Tahrir 
(meaning The Party of Liberation) is a global Islamic political party established in 1953 under the leadership of its founder Taqiuddin an-Nabhani, who was a scholar, political thinker and judge in theCourt of Appeals in al-Quds (Jerusalem). The current global leader is Ata’ Abu Rashta.
Hizb ut-Tahrir 
works at all levels of society to restore Islam as a way of life by re-establishing the
Khilafah
 (Caliphate) in the Muslim world, adopting the method employed by the Prophet Muhammad

worked to establish the first Islamic State in Madinah, usingexclusively political and intellectual means, without using violence. This means winning public opinion infavour of Islam and trying to win the support of the political and intellectual elites of the time.The party propagates Islamic thoughts in Muslim societies challenging the status quo, presenting Islam as acomprehensive way of life that is capable of managing the affairs of state and society; and expresses viewson political events, analysing them from an Islamic perspective. It does all this through discussion, debate,study circles, lectures, seminars, leaflet distribution, publishing books and magazines, and via the internet. Itactively encourages people to attend marches, rallies and pickets it organises.In the West,
Hizb ut-Tahrir 
works to cultivate a Muslim community that lives by Islam in thought and deed,adhering to the rules of Islam and preserving a strong Islamic identity. The party works to project a true im-age of Islam to Western society, often engaging in dialogue with Western thinkers, policymakers andacademics.In recent years Western governments have tried to malign the Islamic ideology as an alternative to Westernliberal capitalism in the Muslim world, under the banner of the “War on Terror”. Hizb ut-Tahrir counters thispropaganda, explaining Islam as a belief, ideology and political alternative for the Muslim world.This report on the US led strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan was produced in this context. When the ‘war on terror’ was launched in 2001, Capitalism and Liberal democracy were portrayed as the ‘end of history’ –i.e. the pinnacle of civilisation on earth. But attempts to impose this model upon the Muslim world by force of arms have failed miserably, as have the attempts to win hearts and minds. Whilst that experiment appears tohave been set aside for the time being, Western governments and media still continue to present Islam assomething violent and backward.This report seeks to expose some of the fallacies in the current Western strategy over Afghanistan andPakistan and presents the only hope to bring stability, security and justice to region – that is the Islamicmodel of governance under the
Khilafah
(Caliphate).
