Iraqi officials in Diyala accused al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups of planting the province with mass graves after a farmer discovered a grave site last week in the town of Buhruz, 30 kilometers south of Baqubah.

The grave included the bodies of 153 citizens that officials believe were killed when terrorist groups controlled the province.

"This is another living example of the extent of crime and degeneration those groups used to practice against innocent Iraqis before the security forces were able to cleanse the province of them," said Maj. Gen. Abdul Hussein al-Shammari, commander of Diyala police.

Al-Shammari said the grave contained corpses of children, women, the elderly, and young members of Iraqi security forces -- all buried on top of one another.

When terrorist groups controlled Diyala between 2005 and August of 2007, they formed "improvised military courts" to conduct mock investigations of Iraqi citizens.

After their "trials", firing squads of terrorists would execute citizens and dump their bodies in ditches. In some instances, terrorists threw the bodies in the streets.

Al-Shammari vowed harsh repercussions for the terrorists' crimes and said Iraqi security forces would "pursue all those who had caused harm to any Iraqi and the fate of the terrorists will be either jail or death, as the law may specify".

The grave was found by a farmer in the area who notified authorities about a buried corpse at a farm close to his land. A forensics team accompanied police forces and found the remaining victims, which including 14 children and 20 women killed by gunshots.

Ali Farhan, spokesman for the Ministry of Human Rights in Diyala province, said work was under way to discover the victims' identities and notify their families so they can be buried properly.

"We were not surprised by the presence of a new mass grave of innocent victims in that area because it was an area for killing and terror and had been controlled by a bunch of deranged, bloodshed lovers who filled the land of the province with mass graves," he told Mawtani.

Majid Nasser of the Iraqi Red Crescent Society in Diyala province said the organisation's records have hundreds of names of missing citizens whose families are trying to determine their fate.

"The terrorists may have killed those citizens mercilessly and hidden their bodies. We see here major crimes carried out by these groups and we hope that security forces will be able to quickly catch the criminals who are running away from justice, to avenge the victims," he told Mawtani.com.

News of the discovery sparked anger and condemnation across the province. Citizens called on the local government to consider the victims martyrs and build a monument in their memory.

"What jihad and what resistance is there in killing the innocent? Where are the principles and rights of humans?" asked Firas Malik, a 32-year-old Buhruz resident.

Abdul Rahman Waleed, a 45-year-old Baqubah resident, said residents "should not forget that period and ought to tell [future] generations what al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups did to us."

''We must build a memorial in the same place of the grave to show the lowliness and degeneracy of those who would kill innocent children, women, and unarmed men."

    I really wonder whether the families of those people are Muslims or not? Probably, they do not know their origins. Who are they? Does Islam accept their acts? Do they believe in Islam? Please, the Muslims have to disown them and they should consider them as non-Muslims, because they make up the army of the devil and they follow no religion. The Muslim scholars have to exonerate Islam from them, so as not to make Islam a target of malicious accusations and classification. Islam should never be branded as a religion that accepts the killing of women and children and even violation of the rights of the dead to be buried, when in fact it is known for tolerance and peace.

The latter must ask God’s forgiveness in order to help their martyrs to enter Paradise with the Prophets and their companions. We also ask God to take revenge on the killers and the criminals who committed these brutal and cruel actions, to help their destruction by their killing themselves, and to send down his wrath and anger upon them till Resurrection Day, and to punish them by inflicting painful torment on them in Hell. And, we ask for mercy and paradise as the abode for all Iraqi martyrs.

    I ask the Iraqi security forces to hold a campaign of investigation to find the evil dens and the whereabouts of these criminals whose hands are stained with innocents’ blood and who are involved in these mass graves. They must arrest them and hand them over to the justice system to be punished as they deserve, in order to serve as a lesson for those who allow themselves to attack the civilians of the Iraqi society. Thus, we strongly condemn these criminal and terrorist operations which target people’s lives, and we condemn the terrorist and criminal behavior against the people, the army forces and the internal security forces by these deviant members who have no religion and no homeland, especially since they carry out the agenda of the country’s enemies in order to harm the economy and to stop the progress and development of the country.

  • محمد البلوشي

    2011-3-25

    The indifference to people’s lives by terrorists has become so obvious, especially after finding a mass grave which includes the remains of many Iraqis of different ages: men and women, elders and children. In fact, these brutal crimes reveal the ugly face of these terrorist organizations, which dealt with these victims in a brutal and inhuman way, through the murder of innocents without caring for Islamic principles, which indict killing and terrorizing people. Thus, they neglect the teachings of Islam, which stress respect for people’s lives and ban the attack on their capacities, which are a blessing from God. There is no doubt that these offenders have no religion and no principles, and it is obvious that their sole purpose is to kill persons to satisfy their egos and their deviant behaviors, because they suffer from psychological illnesses and from inferiority and the lack of respect from people, due to their behaviors, which are condemned by all religions of the world.

The killers of those people are not Muslims, but they now accuse the members of Al-Qaeda of being responsible for everything in the world. They say that Al-Qaeda is behind what is going on in Libya, Yemen, Tunisia, Bahrain, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. They allege that Al-Qaeda is present all over the world! When will we know our real enemy?

    Excuse me, but I believe that we have to rely on unequivocal evidence and fair and unbiased investigation before accusing any organization, because we all know that there is a sectarian conflict in Iraq. So, why are they not united, as long as they are all alleging that they are taking care of the people’s interests? Why do we not focus on the occupier, the weapons of the Mossad and the Americans, instead of accusing any organization without sufficient proof, and being under occupation? This needs a stance, and we have to warn against the unrest, because it is worse than mass murder. God the Exalted Says: • Not a word does he/she utter, but there is a watcher by him ready to record it. -Quran 50:18 • O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for God, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just.

    First, this is very painful, because I swear that killing an innocent Muslim or non-Muslim soul is a shameful act, because Islam forbids suicide. Do not defame the image of Islam. We have seen many people committing arson, sabotage and bombings in order to tarnish the image of Islam by accusing the Islamic groups of committing these acts. We must stop ignoring the real criminals, as what happened regarding the attack on the church in Egypt. They accused Islamic groups of being behind it, while we see that the Salafis used to protect the church during the revolution. Then, who is the real terrorist? We must wake up.

You are responsible for destroying Iraq, and you demanded the invasion of Iraq.

    In many cases, some people commit acts contradictory to God’s rulings, the teachings of religion and the social traditions, which makes them social outcasts, chased by curses, swearing and insults, due to their inhumane and immoral acts. Terrorist organizations are included in this social category, such as al-Qaeda and all the criminal gangs under different names around the world, because their goals are the same. Those who murder people for pleasure or for the satisfaction of personal ego are accursed in this life and in the next, and will not be pardoned by God, nor will they be forgiven, because they violated the sanctity of the blood of the innocent people and took it lightly. God Almighty will rule on the blood and lives first, because He has prohibited unrighteous bloodshed. We notice that the al-Qaeda organization and its fundamentalist, perverted and sick-minded lackeys from terrorist and criminal organizations use the Islamic religion as a cover, while they cannot be further from Islam, as they believe in attacking safe, unsuspecting people. They violate the sanctity of unsuspecting people every day, as they take away their lives and their property and desecrate their honor, while Islam has strongly prohibited such acts, and equated a person who takes one life with one who takes the lives of all people. Islam has prohibited such disgraceful acts, which do not fit with the correct Islamic conviction, which preaches brotherhood and peaceful cohabitation among people from different religions and beliefs, whether they are Muslim or not. This demonstrates the tolerance of the great Islam, which teaches the protection of people’s dignity and lives, no matter what their religions are.
