Sit-in held in New Delhi to call for rebuilding Jannatul al-Baqi shrines (+Photos)

A sit-in was held in the Indian capital of New Delhi on Wednesday to call for rebuilding the holy shrines in Al-Baqi Cemetery in Medina that were destroyed by extremist Wahhabis a century ago.

The sit-in is held every year with permission from the Indian government. 

A similar event was organized in Kargil, Jammu and Kashmir, on Tuesday. 

The shrines of Imam Hassan, Imam Sajjad, Imam Baqir, and Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) in Al-Baqi Cemetery were among those demolished at the order of King Ibn Saud on the 8th of Shawwal in the year 1344 AH (1925). 

In the same year (1925), he also demolished the tombs of holy personalities at Jannat al-Mualla (Makkah) where the Holy Prophet Muhammad's ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) mother, wife, grandfather and other ancestors are buried. 

The destruction of the sacred sites in Saudi Arabia by the Saudis continues even till today. The only reason for the destruction by the Wahabis is to erase history and defame Islam at any cost. 

The demolitions have focused on mosques, burial sites, homes and historical sites that are associated with Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)).

Ayatollah Safi Golpaygani:

Destruction of Jannat al-Baqi a ‘great treason to destroy Islamic history’‎

In a memorandum issued on the anniversary of the destruction of the mausoleums of ‎the Ahl al-Bayt in Madinah’s Jannat al-Baqi cemetery, Grand Ayatollah Lotfollah Safi Golpaygani wrote:‎ 

For the past fourteen centuries until today, Jannat al-Baqi has always been a place of ‎pilgrimage for the Muslims and the centre of awareness and the commemoration of great ‎Islamic personalities.‎

Destruction of Jannat al-Baqi a ‘great treason to destroy Islamic history’‎

 

In a memorandum released on the anniversary of the destruction ‎of Jannat al-Baqi ‎cemetery in Madinah, Ayatollah Safi Golpaygani said that from the fourteenth century until ‎today, the places of pilgrimage of Muslims have been the centres of awakening and the ‎remembrance of the great personalities of Islam.‎ 

The basis for the destruction of Islamic monuments and buildings was a very deep and ‎treacherous scheme drawn up by foreigners to obliterate the documents, concrete evidence ‎and relics of the history of Islam. When the colonialists sought to divide and create sects in ‎order to dominate over Islamic countries, for example, in Iran, Sayyed Ali-Mohammed ‎Shirazi [called the “Bab”] and Mirza Husayn-Ali Nouri [called “Baha’ullah”] were provoked as ‎claiming to be babs, mahdis and Prophets and also divinity. In India, Ghulam-Ahmad ‎Qadiyani founded the so-called Ahmadiyyah mercenary sect. In the Arabian peninsula, ‎Wahhabism was created as a tool and Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab was taken as a ‎mercenary. Their most important objective, in addition to the plunder of the great reserves ‎of oil, was to destroy the monuments of Islam and they even targeted the holy shrine of the ‎Holy Prophet.‎ 

The eighth day of Shawwal, 1344 AH [April 21st, 1926] is the day when a devious group ‎began its destruction of Jannat al-Baqi’ and destroyed the holy and illuminated shrines of the ‎Ahl al-Bayt and destroyed the identity of the dear Islam. Therefore, it is imperative that all ‎Muslims, including Shi’ahs, Sunnis and various denominations condemn their crimes on this ‎day and all of them together must demand the rebuilding of these shrines and the revival of ‎the brilliant history of Islam.‎ 
‎ ‎ 
Shi’ahs, in order to remember these documents of history and the insults that have been ‎inflicted against the Ahl al-Bayt in the Holy Shrine still continue, consider this day as a day of ‎grief for the Ahl al-Bayt and a day of attacks against the history of Islam and hold mourning ‎commemorations on this day and condemn the crimes perpetrated against Islam, the Qur'an, ‎the personality of the Prophet and his Infallible Family and stressed that these crimes are ‎unforgettable.‎
