Saudi Arabia plans to destroy the tomb of prophet Muhammad, claims British newspaper

Monitoring Desk: The Saudi Arabian government is planning to destroy the tomb of the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) (God forbids), reports British Newspaper the Independent.

According to the Independent, there is a plan to destroy the tomb of Prophet Mohamed and removal of his body to an anonymous grave.

According to the newspaper, the proposals are part of a consultation document by a leading Saudi academic which has been circulated among the supervisors of al-Masjid al-Nabawi mosque in Medina, where the remains of the Prophet are housed under the Green Dome. The plans, brought to light by another Saudi academic who has exposed and criticised the destruction of holy places and artefacts in Mecca – the holiest site in the Muslim world – call for the destruction of chambers around the Prophet’s grave which are particularly venerated by Shia Muslims.

The 61-page document also calls for the removal of Mohamed’s remains to the nearby al-Baqi cemetery, where they would be interred anonymously.

There is no suggestion that any decision has been taken to act upon the plans. The Saudi government has in the past insisted that it treats any changes to Islam’s holiest sites with “the utmost seriousness”.
