In contrast, the highest-ranking Shiite authority in Iraq, Ali al-Sistani, issued a fatwa condemning the abuse of Sunni sanctities, saying: “This is to be condemned and denounced, and is contrary to the instructions of Shiite Imams.” The Imam al-Khoei Foundation, which is influential among Shiite religious circles, issued a statement denouncing events and called for the respect of everyone’s sanctities.

Muqtada al-Sadr also delivered a speech denouncing and condemning the provocative act by some feeble minds, as he put it. At the same time, he decried the wave of bomb attacks, and tried to distinguish between moderate and extremist Sunnis. He said: “I salute Iraqi Sunnis who have shunned sectarianism and vile ideological extremism; who have rejected terrorism, al-Qaeda, booby-traps and acts of violence.” Before the events, another fatwa was issued in this regard by the leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, Ali Khamenei. It read: “It is forbidden to abuse our Sunni brothers’ symbols, as it is forbidden to accuse the Prophet’s wife of anything that taints her honor.”

Why we Shias are all the time trying to make peace with these Sunnis while they are killing us? Why? Al Sistani shouldn't have made no such fatwa, these Sunnis totally deserve to be treated the way they treat us, no offence. Or at least these Sunnis should come out and protest on the killings of Shiites all around the world by their Sunni brothers. This is ridiculous.

email from khui foundation ... please verify what i received from someone.

Al Khoei Foundation

The e-mail has attached files

On 6 October 2013 in the Adhamiya district of Baghdad, Iraq, a group of Shia men marched through what is predominantly a Sunni area chanting slogens aimed at causing offence to the Sunni residents. They chanted derogatory remarks against revered figures in the Sunni tradition, such as Omar and Ayesha. The incident has caused much distress and video recordings of the event have circulated via the internet.

The office of the Grand Ayatollah al-Sistani in the holy city of Najaf has released a statement on 8 October strongly condemning the incident, denouncing it as going against how the Ahl al-Bayt Imams have instructed their Shia to behave.

The al-Khoei Foundation would like to add their own condemnation of this incident. The Foundation would like to stress that such behaviour is unacceptable and not representative of the Muslim Shia community as a whole. Aggressive and inflammatory actions such as these serve only to exacerbate the sectarian tensions that are already the source of considerable pain in Iraq. The Foundation greatly supports all initiatives that are working towards promoting peaceful co-operation and friendship between Sunnis and Shias in Iraq. They hope that the Muslim community is able to rally behind these positive efforts rather than the destructive actions of a small minority.
