Hizb ut-Tahrir in Pakistan announce in a press release the launch of a campaign aimed at "stopping the civil war instigated by the Pakistani government in Swat valley, to serve the interests of the United States in Afghanistan."

"Hizb ut-Tahrir condemns the Pakistani governments' efforts to save America at the expense of Muslims, and has thus decided to launch a nationwide campaign to mobilize the population to work on stopping the American proxy war fought by the Pakistani army," the statement said.

The party also called for an end of the war and for stopping the partaking of Pakistani forces in what it called "Obama's failed Crusades." It also called for an end of the U.S. military presence in Pakistan and urged Pakistani soldiers to rebel against their leadership.
