SHAFAQNA – Top Iranian cleric, Grand Ayatollah Jafar Sobhani, criticized anti-Shia satellite and television channels demanding Muslim scholars to highlight commonalities as a strategy against enemy plots.

He called the new era as a time of division adding,” The disagreement between Shia and Sunni is due to the prejudice of these groups towards their own ideas and if we intend to save our nation we have to highlight our commonalities.”
Prominent Shia professor of Qom Seminary demanded Muslim scholars to underline commonalities between Shia and Sunni Muslims and noted,” Society has to stress commonalities and leave the study of disagreements to scholars.”
