Say what you will about Al-Qaeda and its Wahabi and Salafi patrons, they sure have the savvy of attracting world’s wrath for their despicable deeds, and yet they seem to have mastered the art of deflecting not only the most formidable of western powers, they continue to baffle even some fellow Muslims, who tacitly support them by their deafening silence. Western powers and their policies towards Al-Qaida, Taliban and al-Nusra have been contradictory and hypocritical at best, simply because the Western policy makers supposedly consider these evil entities as terrorists that must once and for all be wiped out from the face of this planet. Yet, according to western print and broadcast media, Al- Qaida of Iraq in collaboration with al-Nusra are being financed as well as armed by Saudis, Qataris and Turks, regimes considered allies by France, U.K and the U.S. Al-Qaeda and al-Nusra have become the merchants of destruction and bloodshed whose actions are fueling a civil war in Syria that has caused the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians.
During the past week, the desecration of the grave site of a revered figure, Hajar Ibn Adi al-Kindi, one of the companions of Prophet Mohammad (SAWW), took place in Adra, a town north of Damascus, again perpetrated by the same genocidal gang comprising al-Nusra front & Al-Qaida fighters and patronized by Wahabi regimes. As usual numerous Shia Muslim organizations, in a knee-jerk manner, issued statements of condemnation, while the so-called mainstream Muslim organizations did not even bother to utter a single word.
If history is any guide, in 1925 the mausoleums in Jannat-ul- Baqi, in Madinah, housing the graves of Fatima Zehra (AS), the only daughter of the Prophet SAWW, his grandsons Hasan Ibn Ali (AS), Ali ibnil Husain (AS), Muhammad Al-Baqir (AS) and Ja’far Al-Sadiq AS as well as of seven thousand companions of the Prophet (SAWW) were demolished by the Wahabi king Ibn Saud. Also, demolished in the same year, were the tombs of holy personalities in Jannat-ul- Mualla, Makkah, where the Holy Prophet’s mother, Bibi Aamina (AS), his wife Bibi Khadija (AS), his grandfather Adul Muttalib (AS), his uncle Abu Talib (AS) and other ancestors are buried. Destruction of sacred sites in Hijaz continues by Wahhabi / Salafi criminals to this very day. Muslim pilgrims while visiting Saudi Arabia (Madinah and Makkah) attempting to offer Fatiha (Supplications) at numerous grave sites including that of the Holy Prophet (SAWW) are frequently confronted and get maligned by the Saudi Mutawwas (Religious police) and unabashedly told that if they wish to worship the grave of the Prophet (SAWW), they are more than welcome to take the Holy Shrine to their respective countries. Although a most abhorrent and most tragic predicament, it is not beyond the sick psyche of these satanic Salafis to someday demolish and desecrate the holy shrine of the Prophet (SAWW), towards which an attempt was previously made but aborted because of world-wide Muslim protest.
Let there be no mistaking the fact that this is not a statement of condemnation against the cruel and criminal Wahhabi and Salafi bandits. The global Muslim Ummah is the one that should be condemned for its apathy, its hypocrisy and its acts of deception and deviousness. By staying quiet the Muslim Ummah is becoming an accomplice to such heinous acts. The moment has, however, arrived to take this dastardly bull by the horns. Let us not get simply angry, let us get strategic and help open the eyes of the Western Powers. It is just a matter of time when the scorpion will sting the very fish that tried to help it cross the river!
