Saudi authorities to behead a Shia pilgrim for crying in al-Baqi cemetery

Well isn't this just lovely.  The 1,400 year old war between the Sunni and Shia sects of Islam is as barbaric as ever.  Once again the Muslim "holy days" brings out the worst in humanity. 


Saudi authorities to behead a Shia pilgrim for crying in al-Baqi cemetery

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Foreign relations committee of Iraqi parliament condemned the arrest of one of its citizens and the ruling for him to be beheaded.

The committee said with such rulings Saudi Arabia showed their enmity towards Shia Muslims. According to Iraqi media the committee added that The Saudi regime has no right to execute the Iraqi Hajji and asked the government of Iraq to save the arrested Hajji.

Hajj Salaam Kazim from Kazemain was arrested whilst crying in Baqi and was told to stop by the Saudi security forces.

He objected to the Wahhabi forces inside the cemetery and cursed them and their teachings and was immediately arrested. He was taken to the court and sentenced to be beheaded after Hajj ceremonies.

The Baqi Cemetery is a cemetery in Medina, located to the southeast of the Masjid al-Nabawi (The Prophet's Mosque). The mosque is built where the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) used to live, and is currently buried. The cemetery is also known as Jannatul Baqi, meaning "The Garden of Baqi". However, none of its former greenery has been left, as the cemetery was made desolate by Wahabi demolitions. The cemetery holds much significance. It contains many of prophet Muhammad's relatives and companions.
