egypt protestBiased Egypt’s police barred thousands of Muslim Shia’s from entering Al-Hussein Mosque in Cairo to observe Satruday the holiday of Ashura to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (as), grandson of Holy Prophet Mohammad (pbuh).

The decision to ban Shias from Al-Hussein Mosque reportedly came after a number Saudi-American funded Salafist terrorists and a number of Wahabi movements filed a complaint requesting that Shias be blocked from entering the mosque Saturday.

Meanwhile, Al-Azhar issued a statement warning against staging any celebrations in the mosque, saying that Ashura would only be celebrated through fasting and praying, adding that Egypt and Sunnis refuse any form of “heresy that will only cause sectarian conflict.”

The Shiite Muslims of Egypt condemned the biased Muslim Brotherhood (Akhwan) governments decision to forbid the Shiite Muslims of Egypt to observe the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (as) saying that the government biased decision had deprived the large population of Egypt for their basic rights by imposed the ban on Ashura rituals.
