Statement on the martyrdom of Ayatullah Shahid Nimr Baqr al-Nimr
“And whoever is killed unjustly, We have given his heir authority.” (Holy Qur’an 17:31)
The unjust martyrdom of the freedom-seeking scholar, Ayatullah Shahid Nimr Baqr al-Nimr is a great calamity for freedom seekers across the world.
Without a doubt this unforgivable crime further reveals the true face of the leaders of the satanic alliance of oil, dollars and takfirism, and further strengthens the ranks of true peace seekers across the world against the organised oppression of global imperialism and takfirism.
“Do not think that those who have died in the path of Allah are dead; Nay, they are alive in the presence of their Lord, finding provisions.” (Holy Qur’an 3:169) The master of martyrs of the Arabian Peninsula is forever alive, and his path will be continued until the establishment of freedom and justice.
