Salafi destruction of shrines and public property unacceptable

Numerous reports have been given by sources maintaining that some shrines have been destroyed by elements from the Salafi groups sparking angry demonstrations in Alexandria.
Egypt’s top cleric Ali Gomaa has triggered warnings prompting the Supreme Council for Sufi Orders to form a fact-finding committee to investigate the damage which is a clear violation after a memorandum was submitted to the Armed Forces citing 20 encroachments on shrines.
Although Islam promotes democracy which means freedom it does not justify the wanton destruction of property public or private regardless of motives.
