Shias observe World Baqi Day, amid global demands to reconstruct Baqi al-Gharqad Cemetery

Coinciding with the painful memory of the demolition of the holy graves of the Ahlulbayt, peace be upon them, in Baqi al-Gharqad in Medina, which is observed today, the 8th of blessed Shawwal, Shia Muslims have launched global campaigns to demand the reconstruction of this holy cemetery.

The campaigns come in response to the call of the Supreme Religious Authority, His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Sadiq al-Husseini al-Shirazi, who has reiterated his demands for reconstructing the holy graves of the Infallible Imams, as Shias are commemorating the World Baqi Day.

Shia Waves Agency has monitored the campaigns launched by the Shia followers of Ahlulbayt, peace be upon them, on social media platforms, demanding the Saudi authorities to respect the sanctity of the pure graves and to rebuild the honorable shrines that were demolished by the Wahhabis and Salafis.

The activists confirmed in their statements that: “These campaigns are launched to uphold the word of truth and unify the demands calling for the rebuilding of the pure graves in Baqi’ al-Gharqad.”

It should be mentioned that the Supreme Religious Authority, His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah, Sayyid Sadiq al-Husseini al-Shirazi, had earlier condemned the heinous crime against the honourable graves, and stressed on all Muslims to demand reconstruction of this holy site.
