SHAFAQNA – The Iranian president has called on all Shia and Sunni Muslims to remain united and not allow big powers to sow discord among them.
Rouhani made the comment at an Islamic unity conference in Tehran. He then called on Muslims to join hands to counter terrorists. He also blamed certain countries for the death and destruction in the Middle East. President Rouhani said some Western powers supply arms to terrorist groups in the region, aiding and abetting them in their crimes. He said the foreign-backed terrorists kill innocent people in the name of Jihad. President Rouhani added that Jihad in the true sense of the word means resistance against tyranny and defending religion, not pitting Muslims against one another and shedding people’s blood.
