- One of four factions of the radical, terrorist-linked political party Islamist Hizb ut-Tahrir
- Desires the replacement of all world governments with a single Islamic ruler
Led by Abu Rami, Nakithoun (“Renegades”) is one of four factions of the radical Islamist Hizb ut-Tahrir (“the Party of Liberation”), which has been outlawed in Germany, Russia and many other nations that regard it as subversive and linked to terrorists.
The aim of Nakithoun, like that of its parent organization, is to replace all existing governments with a global Islamic government under a single ruler to be called the Caliph.
According to Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed (who in 1986 established Hizb ut-Tahrir in the United Kingdom), Nakithoun is “big in Jordan,” and is the second strongest Hizb ut-Tahrir faction, behind only Zalloumis.
