Indian Muslims call for black Friday in protest of desecration of holy site

1771df3b397e267e904b80c1df177bb0_LIndian Muslims have announced black Friday, slamming the desecration of the holy shrine of one of the prophet’s companions Hujr ibn Adi by foreign-backed militants in Syria.

Reports say that Indian Shia scholar Maulana Kalbe Jawad Naqvi made the announcement during a press conference in New Delhi.
He warned Muslims not to fall into the plot set up by Washington.
A mass demonstration against the desecration has also been scheduled for Saturday in the capital.
The scholar urged Muslims to speak out and protest against such shameful acts.
According to the reports, the militants attacked the mausoleum and exhumed the body of Hujr ibn Adi on Thursday, taking his remains to an unknown location.
The al-Qaeda affiliated al-Nusrah group fighting the Syria government has claimed responsibility for the destruction of the shrine.
Hundreds of protesters in the Indian-administered Kashmir took to the streets in protest against the act.
Hujr — a close companion of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and a staunch supporter of Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (PBUH) — led the army of Muslims to victory in several crucial battles.
He and his sons finally fell victim to their loyalty to Imam Ali (PBUH) and were martyred on the orders of the Umayyad Caliph Muawiyah in the year 660 CE.
