US Muslims mark anniversary of Islamic historical graveyard destruction by Riyadh

Muslims have held an anti-Saudi protest rally in Washington to commemorate the 92th anniversary Riyadh's demolition of the historically revered cemetery of Jannat al-Baqi (Garden of Paradise) in the holy city of Medina.

(presstv) -- During Monday's event, demonstrators denounced the radical Wahhabi ideology which has inspired the Takfiri Daesh terrorists wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria.

They carried placards reading, Ban Wahhabism, stop Wahhabi terrorism, Muslims aginst ISIS, ISIS/ISIL= Wahhabism and Rebuild al-Baqi.

Takfirism, which is a trademark of many terrorist groups, is largely influenced by Wahhabism, which is freely preached by Saudi clerics.

Thousands of protesters are demonstrating against the annihilation of 98 percent of our heritage in Saudi Arabia, said one of the participants at Monday's event.
