New Delhi: 16th Aug 2013.The 8th Shawwal is demolition day of Jannatul Baqi cemetery in Madina Shareef Saudi Arabia which has caused continuous grief and pain the hearts of millions of Muslims all over the world irrespective of sects.The Saudi act of demolition of pious cemetery in which Holy companions and family members of Holy Prophet are buried is an act of high level of condemnation. Successive governments after Khilafate Rashida preserved them and protected them through out history.
(1) All Islamic Heritage buildings destroyed by Saudi Royal Family should be restored to their pre 1900 position. Particularly, we want memorials of Jannatul Baqi in Madinah, and Jannatul Mu’alla in Makka without wasting any more time.
(2) Saudi authorities should publicly apologize to the Muslim world for the destruction of the Islamic Heritage and insults meted out to Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), his family members and Sahabah, during their dynastic rule. The wrongs committed in the past should be apologized publicly and a new beginning made by restoring the Baqi and Mu’alla sanctuaries and other heritage buildings. They should initiate a master plan to restore all Islamic Heritage buildings that have been destroyed in Arabia.
(3) Killing of Muslims in several Muslim countries specially in Egypt by Egyptian government should be stopped immediately and Muslims’ life and property be protected in the whole world.
(4) Shia -Sunni sectarianism must not be encouraged and Saudi govt. through its Imams must build an atmosphere of harmony and brotherhood in Muslim World. It must leave Anti-Iranian and Pro U.S Policies.
(5)Saudi Mutawwa Police must not interfere in the prayers of Sunni-Shia piligrims at Holy Places in the name of Shirk and Biddah.They must understand traditional majority Muslims don’t follow their ideology of Salafism.
