Salute to Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al al-Sheikh, Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti who described attacks on American diplomats and embassies as”Un-Islamic” after noisy protests against the hateful movie “Innocence of Muslims” took place in various parts of the Muslim world.
In principle I agree that legally and Islamically, it is not permissible to attack or harass diplomats of any country. However, in this post my concern revolves around the selective morality of Saudi Salafist Mullahs.
“It is forbidden to punish the innocent for the wicked crimes of the guilty, or to attack those who have been granted protection of their lives and property, or to expose public buildings to fire or destruction,” Saudi Salafist Mufti said in a speech carried by state news agency SPA. Describing the release of the crudely made short film as “miserable” and “criminal”, he added that attacks on the innocent and diplomats “are also a distortion of the Islamic religion and are not accepted by God”.
I believe, attacking the diplomats is something far serious, even expressing hate for the Americans is regarded as “an un-Islamic Act” according to the interpretation of Islam by the Saudis.
It makes me peep into past, 1987. I see the Iranian Pilgrims passing by Abdullah Ibn Zubair Street in Makkah, chanting Slogans:
“Marg Bar Amrika” (Down with America) following the Quranic tradition to show contempt (Birat) for the oppressors on the day of Hajj.
Suddenly a group of Saudi Salafist Police steps forward and starts spraying straight bullets on the Pilgrims.
402 Pilgrims martyred, 659 wounded as per Saudi State figures (Iranians claim wounded to be 4000+)
All this blood is shed on the Fatwa of Saudi Mufti in a place, where it is forbidden even to kill a fly
I saw my homeland Pakistan where about 40,000 innocent people, Shias, Sunni Barelvis, Ahamdis etc have been killed by Saudi sponsored Salfist-Deobandi terrorists and no “Fatwa” comes against this bloodshed
About one million innocent lives have been taken by these Salfi terrorists in Iraq and other countries in light of verdicts issued by the Saudis to carry out these barbaric acts against Shia Muslims and Sunni Sufi Muslims.
Now Libya, Indonesia and even Malaysia are pooling into blood of Muslims shed by these terrorists, supported by the fatwas from these pro American Wahhabi Muftis
In Syria, Saudis are funding Salafi terrorists to kill as many women and children as they could to remove Bashar Al Assad from Damascus and this heinous crime is considered to be “Halal” by the revered Saudi Muftis
On 8th Shawwal, Wednesday, in the year 1345 AH (April 21, 1925), mausoleums in Jannatul al-Baqi (Madina) were demolished by King Ibn Saud.
In the same year (1925), he also demolished the tombs of holy personages at Jannat al-Mualla (Makkah) where the Holy Prophet (s)’s mother, wife, grandfather and other ancestors are buried.
The idea is to eradicate the Islamic legacy and heritage and to systematically remove all its vestiges so that in the days to come, Muslims will have no affiliation with their religious history.
So, attacking the Shrines in Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Indonesia is an “Islamic Act” but protesting against the USA is an “Un Islamic Act”. Well said respected Saudi Mufti.
