ImageThe world woke up to the grim reality of hard line Islamic group “Ansar Dine’s” destruction of ancient Islamic manuscripts, tombs of saints, monuments and our collective body of knowledge as a people. The reasoning behind the destruction according to the group is because such practices of preservation are frowned on by Islam but such claims have been countered by Islamic scholars and Imams who know better.
