Taliban, Al-Qaida & Wahabi roots of Umayyad clan
Destruction of Shrines
Banu Umayyad continues to punish the whole world and specifically the family of Muhammad and its followers for the shameful defeats they suffered at the hands of Muhammad’s Hashmi family. Destruction of Muhammad’s dad’s tomb in Mecca and destruction of shrine of his daughter in Medina by the Saudis is just the continuation of this age old animosity which they cleverly hide under the guise of Islam but is too evident to Sunni and Shia devotees of Muhammad and his family. They would have destroyed the tomb of Muhammad but they didn’t for the fear of outcry of the whole Muslim world and the possible loss of revenue that place generates from the pilgrimage of hundreds of thousands of Muslims through out the year. This animosity has not spared the tomb of any sufi saint and if any nonmuslim relic of historical or religious significance comes in their path they make sure it meets the same fate.
Mortal Animosity to Shias and Sufis
In addition to so many other explanations this is one of the explanations why Wahabi Taliban are so much against Iran, Hazara of Afghanistan and Pakistan, Alvi, Sufi, Shia’s and Beralvi Sunnis. It is that age old hatred and the pain of the defeats they suffered at the hands of the Hashmi family of the Prophet Muhammad and despite getting the power and wealth and displacing their enemies to far flung areas of the world they didn’t sit idle and attacked Iran, Afghanistan and India in pursuit of Shia Muslims.
Movie: The Message
In 1976 a movie was made called “the message” detailing the emergence of Islam and the early days of the Muhammad as the Prophet.
The following scenes are the fist fight of Muslims with the Banu Umyyiads (Influential Non Muslims at the time). In the fight Ali and his uncle Hamza killed two of their champions. Note that Ali is not shown in the fight but only his distinctive split V shaped scimitar.
the Cult of Hate and Hinda
At about the end of the clip the woman called Hinda, daughter of Umiya who was killed by Hamza (played by Anthony Quinn) vows to rip his liver out of his dead body and chew it in her mouth. Which she actually did later in the second Islamic war when she hired a marksman expert in spears to assassinate Hamza.
She was the mother of Maavia who fought with Ali and lost for the kingship after the death of Muhammad. But later succeded in getting Ali assassinated and became the unchallenged ruler of Arabian peninsula. But he poisoned the elder son of Ali called Hassan just to be on the safe side to quell any uprising or serious opposition to his method of ruling Islamic empire. His son Yazid sent a 100,000 army in Karbala to finish off the 72 members of Muhammad’s family led by Hussain who died along with his followers in a day long fight.
The Yazid’s general after the fight declared that today he had taken revenge for the deaths of his forefathers Umiya and his sons at the hands of Muhammad’s family. As far as Yazid was concerned he had finished off the Muhammad’s family and the Shia following but it survived and eventually moved eastwards to Iran and India.
New faces of Hate Taliban and Al Qaida
The whole sad episode in my opinion is rooted down to the traditional Arabian animosity and rivalry that went on for generations. this is the animosity that saw the tribal rivalery against Muhammad's family translating into Global Jihad of the modren time and actually fighting the same faith and its principles but shamlessly using its name at the same time.
In the past, the hatred and venom of wahabis was restricted to mostly Shias but after their spread and wealth from oil they have gained power across the globe in the face of Taliban, Alqaida , al mohajiron etc and now threaten the peace of the regions where they operate and don’t want to spare anyone who stands on their way.
