Radical Syrian mullah Abd Al-Razzaq Al-Mahdi has asked the Muslims to celebrate the spread of the Coronavirus in China, as it was the punishment meted out by Allah for persecuting Muslims in the country.
In a fatwa, Al-Mahdi permitted Muslims to pray to Allah to annihilate the people of China. In his sermons, the radical mullah encourages Muslims to take part in jihad and carry out attacks inside Russia.
The fatwa was pronounced in response to a question asked by one Muhammad Abu Nassir who wrote: “Is it permissible that we express our joy for what China is experiencing – the Coronavirus and the death of the Chinese people.”
To this, Al-Mahdi said: “Yes, yes we should express our joy and pray for their annihilation. They have declared resounding war and they killed, slaughtered, imprisoned, and oppressed the Uyghurs and non-Uyghur Muslims. They are the enemies of Allah and are Buddhists and communists. The non-Muslim Chinese people are either Buddhists or communists.”
Another Syria-based jihadi cleric Abdallah Al-Muhaysini stated: “China’s criminal policy aimed at exporting the Coronavirus to East Turkestan by canceling all flights to and from the city of Wuhan except the ones heading to East Turkestan. As usual, the Communist China, will not waste any opportunity to annihilate the Muslim nation of Uyghurs.”
