“However, it is not allowed for a Muslim to express any opinion that contradicts Islam, whether regarding the Islamic creed or anything emanating from it. Accordingly, he is not allowed to call for the ‘liberation of women,’ or Nationalism, or Patriotism, or Regionalism, or a Kufr principle like Capitalism or Socialism, or indeed any idea that contradicts Islam. Therefore, it is not allowed for Muslims to adopt the freedom of opinion which the Capitalists call for. Everything that is initiated by a Muslim should be confined by the Shar’ia.”Hizb ut-Tahrir, “The American Campaign to Suppress Islam,” (London: Al Khilafah Publications, 1996), 28; http://www.ht-bangladesh.info/sites/default/files/books/uscampaign.pdf.
