Destruction of early Islamic heritage sites in Saudi Arabia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Destruction of early Islamic heritage sites in Saudi Arabia

The destruction of sites associated with early Islam is an on-going phenomenon that has occurred mainly in the Hejaz region of western Saudi Arabia, particularly around the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. The demolition has focused on mosques, burial sites, homes and historical locations associated with the Islamic prophet, Muhammad and many of the founding personalities of early Islamic history.

The current Wahhabi attitude is radically anti historic and anti cultural.
