Hizb ut Tahrir is an International, Pan-Islamist Organization which aims to unite the Muslims under the Caliphate (as its promised with them in prophecies) and its proposed state would have Sharia law and do Dawah to non-Muslims. 1 Hizb-ut-Tahrir can be described as "revolutionary" (mainly due to misunderstanding of Caliphate's concept in majority of countries - even in Muslim world) but "Non-violent" 2
All but 3 Arab countries have banned Hizb-ut-Tahrir. Similarly, in Pakistan and Turkey, this organization is banned as well, while on the other hand, its successfully operating in Western Countries from USA to Australia.
What is the reason behind it? (My naive understanding is that all the Muslim "countries" rulers fear from the concept of Caliphate resulting in them losing their seats to a unified ruler while western countries have no such a fear)
