Moosavi expresses serious regrets on the uprooting of Shajar e Rasool i.e. the tree associated with the Holy Prophet of Islam (SAWW)

ISLAMABAD, February 19: Expressing serious regrets on the uprooting of Shajar e Rasool i.e. the tree associated with the Holy Prophet of Islam and his pious companions, the Patron in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulama Board and head of Tehreek e Nifaz e Fiqah Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has termed the silence of Muslim rulers, international organizations and the media on the matter as a big question mark. He said that the biggest threat to Harmain Sharefain is from the ideology that declares the signs attributed to Islam as Shirk. If the series of such destructions is not stopped then the next targets would be the shrine of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP), Baitullah, and Hajar e Aswad.  Building temples on one hand while demolishing Islamic signs on the name of Shirk on the other proves a double-standard policy. The term of declaring Muslims as Mushrik and Kafir (non-believers) was invented by the British agent Lawrence of Arabia that the Islamic world could not get rid of till date. The international organizations like UNESCO which create a lot of hue and cry for the protection of Budhas statues must pay attention to the destructed Islamic signs that are the common heritage of the Muslim Ummah. Giving away Chabahar port to India on lease is like providing a monitoring post to India against Pakistan and China. The government of Iran must have no confusion that India is also an agent of colonial powers like Israel. The heart rendering sermons of the Lady of heavens Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A) are they key for the unity and strength of Islamic world. Daughters who used to be buried alive became respectable due to the noble personality of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A). He said this while addressing to the Majlis e Aza of Ashra e Azaa e Fatimiya.

                Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that if the tree of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) was indeed a sign of Shirk, then why did not the Caliphs including Hazrat Abu Bakar (RA) and Hazrat Umar (RA) got it cut? and why did not Imam Abu Haneefa, Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal, Imam Malik or Imam Shafai issued Fatwa to cut it down as stamping and labelling the sacred sites as places of Shirk was first introduced right after the first world war. The primary reason of the problems faced by the Muslims lies in disrespecting the holy sites and sacred personalities of Islam which also allowed the western world to disrespect the sacred personalities of Islam. If Muslims continued disrespecting the sacred signs then no one would be able to stop those who make caricatures of the holy Prophet.

                Agha Moosavi said that the Islamic world has been a target of the evil powers since day one for which not others, but Muslim rulers have been used as agents. An international evil conspiracy resulted in bringing the Otoman Caliphate to end while certain elements were brought in Hijaz who started with destruction of the holy sites and the cemeteries of Jannat ul Baqi and Jannat ul Mualla which housed the shrines of the forefather of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP), Umhat ul Momineen, the companions of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP), and Ahl e Bait (A.S) were demolished which continues till date. The extremist ideology of destroying the holy shrines is the one that gave birth to terrorism which severely wounded the Muslim countries of the whole world and therefore, Muslims do not need a foreign enemy any more. The shrines of holy Prophets, Auliya e Karam across the world including Iraq and Syria were targeted and now the Shajrat ul Rasool i.e. the tree of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HP) has been uprooted a few days back. 

                Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that all evil powers including India have been conspiring against Pakistan, the Indian aggression at the LOC continues and the scenes of the Indian occupied Kashmir and Ghaza are quite similar however, the atrocities against the oppressed Kashmiris have not moved any of the Muslim rulers. He said that India is increasing her influence in Afghanistan with every passing day which is part of the American agenda. The purpose of Chabahar agreement is not to reach Afghanistan for trade but to get the terrorists infiltrated into Pakistan. He said that the government of Pakistan must take the challenges faced at the diplomatic front and the matter of sending troops to foreign country to the parliament and all parties must formulate and adopt a joint and strong strategy for these matters.
