Moving ahead with the mission to recapture the structures from the cluthes of anti-Hindu, anti-national muslims, which were almost demolished by terrorist mughal rulers and over them anti-god buildings – mosques – were constructed. A devout and brave Hindu leader from BJP Subramanian Swamy Ji made a strong and factual statement that Mosques are not religious structure but mere buildings which can be demolished, and islamic followers themselves are doing so across the world.
Estimates have shown in last 10 years alone over 700 major mosques were demolished by islamic countries including pakistan, bahrain, qatar, bangladesh and Indonesia for development of infrastructure. The number of small islamic buildings, madarsas demolished in the same period runs into several thousands.
Subramanian Swamy Ji said, “A mosque is not a religious place. It is just a building. It can be demolished any time. If anyone disagrees with me on this, I am ready to have a debate on the issue. I got this information from people of Saudi Arabia.”
Let us see how accurate and pragmatic the observation of Subramanian Swamy Ji Is:
Muslims Themselves Demolished Muhammad’s Historical Sites
In 1803 and 1804, the Saudis under Abdul Aziz ibn Muhammad ibn Saud captured Mecca and Medina destroyed islamic historical monuments and various holy Muslim sites and shrines, such as the shrine built over the tomb of Fatimah, the daughter of Muhammad, and even tried to destroy the grave of Muhammad (mohammed) himself as idolatrous, causing outrage throughout the Muslim world.
In Mecca, the tombs of direct relations of Muhammad including his first wife Khadijah bint Khuwaylid were demolished at Jannatul Mualla cemetery. The initial dismantling of the sites began in 1806 when the Islamic army of the First Saudi State occupied Medina and systematically levelled many of the structures at the Jannat al-Baqi cemetery. The vast burial site adjacent to the Muhammad’s mosque were remains of close companions and central figures of early Islam found was demarcated and over them mausoleums were erected on the graves of Al-Baqi. Ancient Mosques across the city were also targeted and an attempt was made to tear down Muhammad’s tomb.
Islamic Structures of Mohammed and His Relatives Were Demolished By Muslims Themselves
Muhammad’s Tomb Almost Got Demolished !
Some of the structures which were not demolished were wiped off with paints. Portions of the famed Qasida al-Burda, the 13th century ode written in praise of Muhammad by Imam al-Busiri, inscribed over Muhammad’s tomb were painted over. Among specific sites targeted at this time were the graves of the Martyrs of the Battle of Uhud, including the grave of the renowned Hamza ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, uncle of Muhammad and one of his most beloved supporters, the Mosque of Fatimah Al Zahraa’, daughter of Mohammad, the Mosque of the Two Lighthouses (Manaratayn) as well as the Qubbat Al-Thanaya, the cupola built as the burial place of Mohammad’s incisor tooth, which was broken from a blow received during the Battle of Uhud.
Muhammad’s Tomb was almost demolished until muslims around the world urged the Saudi King not to do so.
In Medina, the Mashrubat Umm Ibrahim, the home of Mohammad’s Coptic Egyptian wife Mariah and birthplace of their son Ibrahim, as well as the adjacent burial site of Hamida al-Barbariyya, mother of Imam Musa al-Kadhim, were destroyed during this time. The site was paved over and is today part of the massive marble esplanade beside the Mosque. The government-appointed permanent scholarly committee of Saudi Arabia has ordered the demolition of such structures in a series of Islamic rulings noting excessive veneration leading to Shirk. Shirk
is an Islamic concept that outlaws associating people or objects of worship with Allah. Muslims regard Christians as the prime offenders, with their worship of Jesus as the Son of God.

Historical remains of ancient islamic houses were submerged to the ground. The twenty-first century has seen an increase in the demolition of sites in Mecca and Medina. As the annual Hajj continues to draw larger crowds year after year, the Saudi authorities deemed it necessary to raze large tracts of formerly residential neighborhoods around the two mosques to make way for pilgrimage-related infrastructure. In 2010, it was forecast that developers were going to spend an estimated $13 billion on the largest expansion project in the city’s history. The massive extension is still ongoing without any opposition from muslims in Saudi or other islamic countries.
While muslims in India made huge hue and cry on g@y love structure, Babri Masjid’s demolition, they failed to raise the same voice against more holier structures which were demolished by their fellow cult followers.
Sami Angawi, the founder and former director of Mecca’s Hajj Research Center and opponent of the destruction of Mecca’s historic sites, estimates that over 300 antiquity sites in Mecca and Medina have already been destroyed, such as the house of the first caliph, Abu Bakr (RA), which was leveled to make room for the Mecca Hilton Hotel.
According to Ivor McBurney, a spokesman for Hilton, ”We saw the tremendous opportunities to tap into Saudi Arabia’s religious tourism segment.”
Daniel Howden noted “The actual birthplace of the Prophet Mohamed is facing the bulldozers, with the connivance of Saudi religious authorities whose hardline interpretation of Islam is compelling them to wipe out their own heritage.”
