Saudi Arabia forcing Wahhabi faith on Hajis and exporting fundamentalism – by Ali Taj

The Sunni cleric is complaining about the Saudi regime distributing hateful literature to radicalize people at Hajj. The so called religious gifts for Hajjis are books in Urdu, Bangla, Hindi, Malay, Indonesian and other languages, promote the intolerant and love less strict Wahhabism to Hajjis. It is presented as holy gift. Some are infected with the virus and bring it back to their home countries. Here the Saudi Wahhabi deep state springs into action and funds extremist organizations as well as the religious schools that provide the recruits for them.

“A Sunni Islamic Scholar says that the current hikes in murder rates are not specific acts of terrorism, but, is a particular sect preaching it’s ideas in the shadow of swords. Saudi Arabia is spending billions of rupees to promote Wahabi ideas, where Wahabi lobby is consistently spreading fear amongst minority masses by indecent and brutal acts. The truth is out… is not a Sunni Shia war……it is a war between Wahhabis and Islam.”

This is not the purpose Hajj and the holy mosques of Mecca and Medina. The holy cities belong to all the Muslims in the entire world. When the Imam of the Grand Mosque of Mecca visited India to promote his Wahhabi Ideology In May of 2011. He was confronted and reminded of the written agreement made by Saudi kings with Indian Muslims.

“They even demanded the Mecca Imam for a clarification on the treaty made between Indian Muslim leaders and the Saudi Kingdon in 1925 in which king Abdul Azeez (Ibn Saud) had promised to hand over Mecca, Medina and other cities of Hijaj under the custodianship of a united body of world Muslim leaders after the establishment of peace in the region but the treaty has so far not been followed. They also asked the Imam to convey this message of Indian Muslims to Saudi king Abdullah.”

There is a written and signed agreement in place to return the Holy placed in custody of Muslims and take them out out the hands of one corrupt, evil, ruthless, barbaric and dictatorial family.  They have no right to impose their intolerant version of Islam. Muslims  world wide need to reclaim custody of their holy places, where Muslims are free to practice their faith. Where they are not afraid of being beaten and imprisoned by Saudi religious police if they are found praying in a non Wahhabi way.

Shia poet Yasir Ali aptly curses the Arab rulers who usurp the faith of Sunni and Shia Muslims in addition to stealing their wealth. The revenues from Hajj are for the welfare of Muslims not the Saudi family.

In the end I would like to reassure Salafis and Wahhabis, they too have an equal right to follow their faith in Mecca and Medina. Our quarrel is not with them. Our quarrel is with the Saudi State sponsored imposition and promotion of Wahhabism. The non Wahhabis that make up 95 percent or more of Islam have a right to pray, freely and without fear, the way they want to, in Mecca and Medina.
