Mumbai, July 5 (IANS) Film celebrities like Adnan Sami, Hansal Mehta and Ali Zafar on Tuesday condemned the blasts which took place near mosques in the holy Saudi city of Medina and in Qatif.
A suicide bomber blew himself up beside the security headquarters in Prophet Mohammed’s mosque in the Saudi city of Medina on Monday, local media reported. A second blast took place, also on Monday, near a mosque in the Shia city of Qatif in the eastern part of the country, Xinhua cited Al Arabiya local news as saying.
The blast happened at sunset when residents of the area broke their fast in the holy month of Ramadan.
Here’s what the celebrities had to say:
Adnan Sami: Terrorism has no religion. A Muslim would not bomb one of Islam’s holiest places. This act proves it beyond reasonable doubt! Period! Medina.
Ali Zafar: “Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you.” Prophet Mohammad (p.b.u.h) in his last sermon.
Hansal Mehta: Another attack on Shias? This is Ramadan? Explosions near mosques in Qatif, Medina, several feared dead.
Shekhar Kapur: Till the next Bomb Medina. Bangladesh Attack. Terror attack.
Ranvir Shorey: It’s about time Muslims reclaimed Islam from violence. Medina
Farah Khan Ali: So blast is in Qatif and not Medina but a blast is a blast and it’s near a Mosque. Sick! Terror has no religion, I agree, but these terrorists claim to follow Islam, kill Muslims and other innocents, attack Muslim nations and holy places and profess great love for god in whose name they kill. They sound like retards to me brainwashed by fanatical fundamentalists. Sick.
