Iranians Are Not Muslims-Saudi Grand Mufti
Saudi Arab's Grand Mufti (Top Cleric) said,"' Iranians are "Not Muslims" after Iran's supreme leader launched a fresh tirade over the handling of Hajj Pilgrimages. 'We must understand they are not Muslims, they are children of Magi and their hostility towards Muslims is an old one. Specially with the people of 'Sunna' when he referred to the pre-Islamic beliefs in Iran and the Sunnis who make up the main branch of Islam. The grand Mufti commented after the Iran's leader Ayatullah Al Khumeini said the Muslim world should challenge the Saudi management of two holiest sites of Makkah and Medina. The verbal sparring ahead of Hajj which this year starts on Saturday, follows months of tension between Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia and its Shia regional rival Iran.
