This year I am hearing something new. The sunnis in Pakistan have started a new campaign against Eid Ghadeer saying it's the shias celebrating the death of Caliph Usman (عليه السلام) . This is the twitter hashtag for those of you who want to read the comments.


It is full of 'Fazaail of Sayyidna Hazrat Usman' one of them being his expertise in settling complicated inheritance disputes (by giving Fadak to Marwan bin Hakam,for example??)  

Secondly,I found people quoting this

Khomeini writes in Kashf ul Asrar that those who remained with the Prophet, they must have removed the verses of the Quran which had named Hazrat Ali as the Caliph after the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) ( see kashf ul Asrar pg 113-114 )

This is why shia sunni unity is such a failed concept.

According to Tabari (the Sunni Historian), yes Uthman died on the 18th of Dhul Hijja. I say that he said this so the Sunnis can have an excuse to cover up the Day of Ghadir.

According to Ibn Abi Shaybah in his Musanaf, Uthman died on the 12th of Dhul Hijja.

Sunnis are even confused with the date of birth and with the same date in their literature for the death of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). The date of birth and death of prophet as per sunnis is 12 Rabiul Awal. Yet they celebrate the day with full devotion to the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).  :grin:

Thus to save the third caliph from corruption and  in a so called effort to reduce and hide the importance of the truth of hadith Ghadeer such tactics by some sunnis are not new but very old ones.

Then why don't they commemorate the day, perhaps say something about the lady who gave the fatwa of his takfir that got him killed. Perhaps even mourn the sad events, for instance how the mob did not let him be buried for three days and a stray dog made away with one of his legs. Then finally they buried him in the Jewish part of the graveyard after some days.
