Subject: Are terrorists attack on the shrines of the pious companions, Godly people and the Holy Family of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) concern of Shia only?

Assalaam O Aalaikum

The satanic powers are continuously confronting the signs attributed to the religion and the pious personalities of Islam from the beginning. Abraha carried out a failed attempt to raze Ka’aba to ground but at that time the son of Hashimi tribe, Hazrat Abdul Muttalib (PBUH) prayed to Almighty Allah and the Ababeels proved themselves tough on elephants on which the Surah Pheel stands witness.

On the beginning of 20th century when Usmania Caliphate was downed through the colonial agents, then the new group cropping up in Muslims set out to destruct Jannatul Baqee, Jannatul Moallah and even the Holy Tomb of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP). This group succeeded in destructing the shrines of pious companions, mothers of faithful and the holy family of the Holy Prophet (PBUT) in Jannatul Baqee and Jannatul Moallah and they were just eyeing towards the Holy Shrine of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) on which the whole Islamic World, particularly the Muslims in the sub-continent became the symbol of protest. When the colonial powers saw their interests are being threatened, they stopped their agents from doing so and as a result of which the Holy Shrine of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) was saved from being destructed where Hazrat Abu Bakar and Hazrat Omer are also buried along with the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP).

From the destruction of Janat ul Baqi to-date, wherever this group has reached, they called everyone non-Muslim except themselves and targeted the shrines of the pious personalities of Islam and saints wherever they got a chance. With a pat on the back from a particular Muslim State, this handful group desires to impose their ideology and belief on the whole Islamic World. This group desecrated the shrines of Khalifa-tur-Rasool Hazrat Ali (PBUH), the grandson of the Holy Prophet, Imam Hussain (PBUH) and Imam Abu Hanifah (R.A.) in Iraq while razed to the ground the shrine of Imam Al-Askareen (PBUT). They targeted the shrines of pious companions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) in Mazar Sharif in Afghanistan, Libya, Bahrain, Tunis, Egypt, and more than a dozen shrines in Pakistan including Hazrat Shah Abdullah Ghazi, Data Darbar, Bari Imam, Fareed Ganj Shakar, Kakajee and now they are playing this heinous game on the Syrian soil where they first caused damage to the shrine of the beloved companion of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP) Ammar Yasir (R.A.), then shocked Muslims by digging out the grave of the pious companion of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Hajr Bin Aadi (R.A.), and then targeted the Haram of Hazrat Sakina (PBUH) and now a few days ago they launched rocket attack on the shrine of the beloved granddaughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP), Hazrat Zainab Binte Ali (PBUH) on which the heads of Muslims went down in shame. But it is unfortunate that all Muslim rulers are silent on this grave incident and the tongues of human rights institutions are sealed and the United Nations, it seems, is not aware of this incident. These incidents have no value in the eyes of newspaper editorial writers. In this situation, today when the shrines of pious companions and the family of the Holy Prophet (PBUT) are being targeted the world over; only Maktab-e-Tasheyyo is seen lodging protest.

The Parliament of the country created in the name of Islam is also silent and so are its rulers and politicians. Neither Arab League budged an inch nor did Islamic Conference come out from deep slumber. The sessions of these organisations are summoned only when they are signalled to do so by America or any action is required against a country that is on American target.

When a girl was attacked she was taken all the way to the United Nations but no one budged even an inch on the grave incident of attack on the Holy Shrine of Hazrat Zainab (PBUH). Why those who lodge protest on common incidents are keeping silence on this big incident? It was only Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya that came out to observe the Day of Ummul Momineen Hazrat Khadija tul Kubra (PBUH) because she is the mother of all faithful. The media and journals are bent upon proving that she belongs only to one school of thought. Do Ahle Sunnat not keep renowned companions like Ammar Yasir (R.A.) and Hajr Bin Aadi dear to them? Is there no unrest in the ranks of Ahle Sunnat brethren on attacks on the granddaughter of the Holy Prophet (PBUH & HHP)? Definitely there is. Then the media and journals will have to give up that trend. The renowned dailies will have to write editorials on this big incident and will have to highlight this issue as an issue of Islam and not only that of Shi’ite. All schools of thought will have to hand-in-hand to unveil these terrorists who are earning bad name for Muslims and will have to make their stance clear. Because the enemy desires that the Kalma-reciting become entangled with each other and the colonial powers continue selling their arms, as they desire to watch Muslims are destructed at the hands of Muslims.

We want to make it clear that love of pious pious companions and Ahle Bait Athaar (PBUT) in our hearts could not be reduced through these nefarious tactics like suicide attacks, destruction of signs of the pious personalities of Islam. We can die but this love will never ever die.
