Hazrat Lal Shehbaz Qalandar, the foremost Sufi Saint happens to be the great grandson of Imam Jaffar-As-Sadiq (A.S.). The Wahhabi cannibals of Al-Qaida and Daesh knew it too well and that is the reason behind them desecrating his Shrine in Pakistan’s Sindh province, while maiming and massacring hundreds of his followers. A few ago, the Karachi Shrine of Hazrat Abdullah Shah Ghazi, the great grandson of Imam Hassan-e-Mujtaba (A.S.) was attacked in a similar manner by the enemies of the Prophet of Islam and his progeny.
These bloodthirsty mercenaries of Saudi Arabia and its underlings in the Gulf States are the disciples of Hujjaj Ibn Yusuf, the Omayyad governor of Hejaz, who dispatched his son-in-law, Mohammad Ibn Qasim to Sind to kill every single member of Prophet’s family. These Imamzadas, who fled from Arabia to escape persecution and settled in Sind, where they were welcomed and adored by the indigenous population of Hindus, who began embracing Islam in droves. This did not sit well with the the hooligans of Banu Ummayya. The rest is history.
