The attack on the Babri Masjid & demoloshing it is a Serious Crime: Shaikh Ibn Baaz


Babri-masjid-fatwa-shaikh-ibn-bazPraise be to Allah, May peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, Companions and whoever follows him:

All global and Islamic news agencies reported the atrocious crime committed against Islam, Muslims, and their sanctuaries in the Indian city of Ayodhya, when some the Hindus tore down the Babri Masjid (mosque).

However, on hearing this grievous news of the occurrence of such a disgraceful criminal act, we strongly condemned and denounced this outrageous assault, and consider that the destruction and attack on the Babri Masjid is in all respects a major crime, since this includes a serious affront to Islam, Muslims and their sanctuaries. The Indian government should impose severe sanctions upon the perpetrators of this painful disaster. It should reconstruct the Masjid and stop the vicious crimes carried out by the Hindus against Muslims and their sanctuaries. If the Indian government does not enforce severe sanctions, it is quite probable that the Hindus will tend to engage in further criminal acts against Muslim people and their Masjids in India; especially after the fierce determination of some fanatical the Hindus to incite mobbish behavior and demolish the Babri Masjid in front of the Indian government. The Indian government should also show respect to Islam and Muslims in India, provide a suitable environment for them, honor their sanctuaries and carefully protect them from the evil of extremists.

I ask Allah to rectify the affairs of all Muslims everywhere, grant them profound understanding of Islam, unite them upon truth, and grant them victory over their enemies. He is Most Generous, Most Bountiful. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
