A Mock Trial: Mubarak’s Verdict – An Insult to Egyptians
After a long fancy speech filled with Allah’s beautiful verses, Chief Judge Ahmed Refaat stated his final verdict as the Haqq (righteous). The verdict sentenced Hosni Mubarak; dictator for the past 30 years, and former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly to a life sentence over the deaths of demonstrators. The chief judge, making a mockery of Egypt’s population of millions and their tremendous loss, acquitted Mubarak’s sons and other top officials who stood in the metal courtroom cage of crimes. Thereby releasing them back into Egyptian society as untouchable elites. The acquitted are the actual murderers who carried out the order to kill and silence the protesters. Mubarak’s sons are notorious for their grave actions throughout Egypt.
The judicial system danced a fine line trying to portray its determination to forge un-manipulated and unbiased hearings. The 49 court proceedings demonstrate the nature of the Egyptian system in which the military is shielded from public and legal repercussions, rejecting material evidences and hundreds of eye-witness testimonies against army officials. Furthermore, the Mubarak and al-Adly charges are trivial when the charges should be high treason against Islam and being an agent ruler for the Western powers instead of serving the needs of the Egyptians and implementing Islam. Egypt as a nation must reject such traitors in its ruling system and therefore be tried on this basis. While this petty absurd trial serves to circumvent the population’s rage with a light tap on the hands of Mubarak and al-Adly while the others are free to roam and kill. Further proof that the regime is still intact and in full swing, protecting the grandly orchestrated production of the Arab ruler to be tried by his own people and the military officials. This however met adverse reactions.
Of course, courtroom observers erupted in shouts of “Bahtil, Bahtil” (False/Bogus). Victims’ families cursed by Hosni’s reign of terror, hundreds of people killed during the anti-regime protests are left jilted while Mubarak gets a life of pampered luxury in a so-called prison. As one spectator keenly stated, they [the acquitted] may be able to run for Presidency in the upcoming elections. Many expect that Mubarak will be pardoned from the incoming President.
Guest journalist Ahmad Mahmoud on AlJazeera said, “We have ended a small jihad and entered a larger jihad… the verdict on Mubarak and his allies being the biggest crime in Egypt’s history.”
Millions of Egyptians are outraged, to say the least, with the court’s verdict. Waiting anxiously, to get some sort of closure or remote justice, for a death penalty verdict for Mubarak and his clan. Yet only two get life in prison while the others get innocence for lack of sufficient evidence.
While Chief Judge Ahmed Refaat may have spoken Allah’s ayat, there is not a single piece of Haqq or truth in the ruling. All the more incentive for Egypt’s mass population to demand the real Haqq, the Islamic State’s ruling. The Egyptians must raise their voices even louder demanding the swift just implementation of the Quran. Never will a self-serving courtroom render a just verdict in today’s Arab countries. Never will a self-serving courtroom render deserving death penalties to Egypt’s and other Arab ruling class who suffocate the population physically, economically, socially. Never will a self-serving courtroom rule against the very system they swore to uphold and protect.
Egyptians must return Egypt, the Land of the Kinanah, to its former prestige and power whose Imams and rulers truly exhibited magnificence in implementing the Haqq and held rulers of all ranks accountable for their actions and rulings. The agent-rulers have their masters to protect and rescue them yet as these blessed revolutions have proven their time is quickly expiring.
Let these blessed revolutions end in granting Nussrah (allegiance) to the people of the Haqq and the sincere army commanders. Let the Supreme Law of the land be that of the Quran and Sunnah. The tens of thousands who suffered great injustices will one day achieve their closure and justice not before Egypt’s mock trials but before an Islamic State’s courtroom.
وَعَدَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا ۚ يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا ۚ وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ ﴿٥٥﴾
“Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion, the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: `They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me.’ If any do reject Faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked.” [TMQ 24: 55].
