ISIS destroys beloved mosque in central Mosul

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – ISIS militants have used explosives to demolish a much-loved 19th century mosque in Mosul city, deeming it sacrilegious, a Kurdish official has said.
 
“Last night ISIS militants blew up the Hamo Mosque at the city center of Mosul. It was the shrine of some revered clerics and local residents used to visit it every Thursdays and Friday,” Saeed Mamuzini, a Kurdistan Democratic Party official in Mosul, told Rudaw on Friday. 
 
In the Islamic State’s brand of radical Islam shrines such as Hamo Mosque are believed to contradict with sharia law.
 
Hamo Mosque, officially named Mosque of Abdulla Ibn Chalabi Ibn Abdul-Qadir, was built under the Ottoman Empire in 1881, according to Mamuzini.

Wow beloved mosque ? I can't sleep any more. Whoe cares, there is too many of them. Most likely half of ISIS members in that area graduated from that mosque.

Wait! !! let me get something straight; these TERRORISTS say they are killing and fighting for Islam, but they are killing Muslims and blowing up Mosques? and people follow them and actually believe they fight for Islam? pathetic. losers. Low - life idiots. Open your eyes people. No Muslim does this. Islam does not teach this. how idiotic and blind is the world? it is disgusting. May Allah curse you all and put an end to your ways. HER BIJI ISLAM. HER BIJI KURDISTAN HER BIJI MASOUD BARZAN

Where are the proud mouslawis. How would you allow these bastards to destroy your life and now your history. When are you going to rise up and blow their skulls and liberate your city. Or have you become chickens!

Its a good thing to erase islam. islam is the religion of the arabs, not the kurds. Kurds have been used thousand of years by islam.
