qabThe funeral of young martyr Mohammad Shaar on Sunday turned into an open war launched by Al-Mustaqbal party against the Grand Mufti Sheikh Mohammad Rashid Qabbani as he arrived at Al-Khasheqji Mosque to take part in the funeral.

Members of the ISF Intelligence Bureau's Strike Force managed to evacuate Sheikh Qabbani later and security forces deployed in the area.

Dar al-Fatwa sources held the defense ministry responsible for the safety of the mufti.

Once again, the Future party proves its disregard to the sanctity of death and blood.

The blue party's supporters exploited the funeral procession of the young teenager Mohammad al-Shaar in an attempt to gain some political goals.

However, as usual they failed but to score another violation to sanctities and mosques.

This time, the Future decided to exceed all the limits by attacking the Grand Mufti of the Lebanese Republic Sheikh Mohammad Rashid Qabbani.

Away from any respect to his religious position, the Future supporters made Qabbani stuck inside the Khashuqji mosque for approximately two hours as they angrily surrounded the mosque, attacked him, and would not let him leave.

They attacked him so that his turban fell into the ground.

Hundreds gathered outside the mosque for Shaar's funeral and began to protest when Qabbani made his way into the mosque.

Several began to chant slogans against the mufti, such as "Get out, Qabbani," and "Qabbani... God's enemy".

Qabbani struggled to leave the premises of the Khashuqji Mosque, prompting the Lebanese Army and members of the Internal Security Forces to deploy in the area and help escort him out of the mosque.

Qabbani was able to walk out of the mosque two hours later, accompanied by a number of Information Branch personnel dressed in full military gear surrounded by angry protesters. He left in an armored vehicle.

The mufti had come to the mosque to attend the funeral of Shaar, who died Saturday as a result of serious head wounds sustained during the Beirut bombing that targeted and killed former Finance Minister Mohammad Shatah Friday morning.

According to a statement released by Dar al-Fatwa, the mufti had originally intended for representative Sheikh Mohammad Anees Arwadi to attend the funeral, but later insisted on attending himself as Shaar was a young boy who did not belong to any political party.

But, the statement said, "there were those lurking among the ranks of the faithful ... who tried to split the Muslims and create strife within the mosque, for purposes that have become clear."

According to the statement, Qabbani considered the incident a "transient event" which had little value and "is outside of the morality and ethics of Islam."

The mufti held the political powers responsible, particularly caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati and head of the Future bloc MP Fouad Siniora, whom he said were trying to "distort the mufti's image" in order to gain control of Dar al-Fatwa.

Former Prime Minister Salim al-Hoss, for his part, called for punishing those who assaulted the mufti, branding it a "cowardly" act.

Hoss denounced the attack, saying that "what the Lebanese mufti has suffered and the events that accompanied it serve to provoke chaos and discord."

He called for "imposing punishment on whoever was tempted to attack or assault the mufti."

Shaar died a day before of wounds he sustained in a Beirut car bomb which also killed former Minister Mohammad Shatah.

Qabbani was refused entry to the mosque by Al-Mustaqbal partisans and they even called him "enemy of Allah."

Members of the ISF Intelligence Bureau's Strike Force managed to evacuate Sheikh Qabbani later and security forces deployed in the area.
