Takfiri salafi terrorists are planning huge massacre of Shia Muslims through book bombs on chehlum in Iraq.
Col. Saad Ibrahim, spokesman for Iraqi interior ministry, issued warning to the Zaireen (Pilgrims) to beware of the terrorism threats during their stay for chehlum of Imam Hussain (AS) and martyrs ofKarbala.
He said in the warning message that the terrorist may plant bombs in the books of Holy Quran, Mafateeh ul Jinan, Ziarat us Saleheen, and these bombs-concealed books would be distributed among the Zaireen for massacre of Zaireen on large scale.
The interior ministry spokesman appealed to the Zaireen not to get anything from the people they donâ€™t know.
Iraqi government has issued timely warning in a bid to avert terrorism on the eve of chehlum of Hazrat Imam Hussain, third infallible Imam of Shia Muslims.
It is relevant to add here that more than 1 million Shiites from across the world thronged Karbala to commemorate the chehlum in Karbala on Safar 20th every year. It is strongly recommended in Shia Islam to have Ziarat of Imam Hussain (AS) at his shrine on the day of chehlum. Shia Muslims observe annual mourn in commemoration of atrocities inflicted upon Imam Hussain (AS), his progeny and companion in Karbala.
