The Syrian minister shared facts regarding desecration of grave of the ruler Abdul Aziz of Umayyad era early this year.
Nusra Front terrorists had occupied that part of Syrian province Idlib and Syrian regime liberated that area in January 2020.
Federal Minister Qadri told Syrian Minister Abdul Sattar about Pakistani people’s feelings over the news.
Syrian Auqaf Minister Abdul Sattar Syed said that the images of the grave (that went viral on social) had showed the condition during Nusra Front control.
However, he made clear that Syrian regime has begun renovation of the tomb and rehabilitation of the neighbourhood.
He also cited that takfiri terrorists had earlier desecrated many shrines and graves in Syria.
Minister Qadri shared this news in a series of tweets.
حضرت عمر بن عبدالعزیز رحمت اللہ علیہ کا مزار شام کے شہر ادلب میں ہے، جو لمبا عرصہ دہشت گرد تنطیم جبھة النصر کے زیر قبضہ رہا ھے، مذکورہ تصاویر اور ویڈیوز شامی حکومت کے دوبارہ قبضہ سے پہلے کی ہیں، جبھة النصر نے ادلب میں دیگر مزارات کی بھی بے حرمتی کی تھی: عبدالستار سید، شامی وزیر

Syrian minister appreciated feelings of Pakistanis on the issue. He assured that tom would be opened for visitors shortly after necessary renovation that has begun.
He also assured the best look after of all the shrines of sacred people.
To understand facts regarding the issue, readers may read:
Who desecrated shrine of Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz and his wife in Syria?
For that, one must compare this with destruction of Muslim shrines which Saudi King Ibn Saud and his Wahhabi allies did in Madinah and Makkah (Saudi Arabia).
Who desecrated shrine of Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz
Pakistan and Iraq also witnessed bombing of shrines of Muslim saints. Saudi monarchy and their co-sect Wahhabi-Salafi groups and allied Deobandi takfiris perpetrate such sort of heinous crimes.
These two sects detest shrines of Islamic saints around the world. In the modern history, British imperialism backed House of Saud who occupied Makkah and Medina (Madinah) in Hejaz.
Wahhabis/House of Saud destroyed the Islamic shrines in Jannatul Baqi graveyard in 1920s. Since then Saudi monarchy has razed many early Islamic archaeological sites, including shrines.
Pakistani Sunni cleric Mufti Abdul Qayyoom Qadri authored History of Najd and Hejaz (Tareekh-e-Najd-wa-Hejaz).
Since the Muslims observe Jannatul Baqi demolition anniversary of 8th Shawwal every year, Saudi monarchy, allied West and their funded activists tried to divert attention from Jannatul Baqi demolition.
They used an old photo of shrine Omar Bin Abdul Aziz in Idlib (Syria) when the area had remained under Nusra Front’s control. Factually speaking, world knows well that Nusra Front, the Syria branch of Al-Qaida had occupied that area of Idlib.
