Hezbollah resistance group has condemned the crime that terrorists committed against the grave of Prophet Mohammad’s (PBUH) dignified companion, Hujr Ibn Adi Al-Kindi, in Adra, near Damascus.

In a statement released on Thursday, Hezbollah expressed its deep concern and pain over hearing the heinous act of terrorist group in Syria.

The shrine of the great companion, Hujr Ibn Adi, is one of the most important shrines for all Muslims and violating his grave reveals a criminal mentality that does not respect neither Muslim nor Christian sanctities, the statement added.

The statement also indicated that “this crime raises one big question: Where is the Syrian opposition which claimed it wanted to protect sanctities and pledged to defend shrines and religious centers?”

Iraqi Premier Nouri al-Maliki has also condemned exhuming Great Companion's shrine in Syria.


A statement issued by Maliki's office stressed that "The targeting of the Great Companion's shrine stands for targeting the Muslims' cohesion."
