Satan’s plan is the same from the beginning of mankind. Deviate the humans from worshipping One Creator to worshipping humans, sticks, stones etc and to take them as partners to our Maker.
Satan has used the same trick with every nation (followers of each Prophet) and has been quite successful. He used the same plan with those who said they follow Jesus and made them worship Jesus himself when Jesus never said to worship him but the Lord which he worships.
Similarly, the so-called Muslims of today have been deviated into worshipping the dead, those in power, the stones, the threads and what not!
May Allah protect us from such deviations and guide us to walk on the straight path.
