SHAFAQNA | Ala Moqadas :  “I think, Islamic scholars are generally not doing their job. They should do more. Not just toward their people also among themselves,” Saeed Al-Shehabi, The Secretary Genaral of Bahrain freedom movement and founder of Abrar Islamic Foundation, said in an interview with Shafaqna.

“The problem is that we are facing big enemies that they work day and night to divide us, to create confusion in our minds and to make us suspicious of each other,” he stressed.

Referring to the Islamic unity conference, Al-Shehabi stated that “Of course this conference is just trying to push this who are attending it as call as the thinkers and speakers to take a wider view on the subject and to deliberate deeper and to the issues that are being raised.”

“I think, Islamic scholars are generally not doing their job. They should do more. Not just toward their people also among themselves. There should be more academic approach the problem. They must sit together. There must be more debate on the issues and matters of disagreement,” he added.

“I believe that the real problem among Muslims is not that there are Shiites and Sunnis but there are people who exploit this. The problems are political. Those who are politicizing religion”, the activist pointed out the real problem among Muslims, saying that “politicizing religion is a crime because you are using a sacred religion as a weapon against the others. This is wrong.”
