iran12A group of 190 Iranian lawmakers have strongly condemned the recent beating to death of four Shia Muslims by radical Salafists in Egypt.

In the statement, which was read out during the open session of Majlis on Tuesday, the lawmakers

described the “martyrdom of four innocent human beings in Egypt for following the school of the Household of Islam’s Prophet (PBUH)” as a “shameful stain” on the track records of the Salafist clerics “who are trying to protect the interests of the US and the Zionist regime with support from radical Takfiris.”

Takfiris are extremist Muslims that follow a deviated interpretation of Islam often promoted by the Saudi-based Wahhabi sect.

“Scholars in the Muslim world should not remain indifferent towards this violent act,” said the statement, reiterating that there is little doubt that depicting a violent picture of Islam is something desired by the US and other enemies of Islam.

The statement also called on the Egyptian government to launch a probe into the horrible crime in a bid to identify the perpetrators of the act and bring them to justice.

On June 23, several hundred Takfiri extremist killed the four Shias in the village of Abu Mussalam in Giza Province. The extremists then dragged the bodies of the dead on the streets.

Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Kandil has denounced the deadly incident, saying that he is closely following an investigation into the killing. He has also promised that the culprits would be punished.

The Shia community in Egypt is being targeted by Salafists with the support of a number of regional countries, especially Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
