Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, in reply to an emulator, criticized a group of people for sacrilege of Sunni Imams and said that is in clear opposition with the style and teachings of Ahlul Bayt (AS), household of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
This fatwa was issued following the move by some young people shouting mottos against Sunni top figures in a Baghdad neighborhood.
This is while Iraqi premiere, Noori al Maliki, ordered the arrest of the desecrators.
Some websites recently have issued the videos of a person desecrating companions of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) while some others accompany him.
The move by Thaer al Darraji, leader of the desecrating youths, has been seriously opposed by Shia jurisprudents and top clerics.
Moghtada al Sadr, an Iraqi Shia leader, has also condemned the move and announced that it is aimed at waging religious intrigues in Iraq.
