Iranian Envoy Warns of Enemies' Divisive Plots against Muslims
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Ambassador to Beirut Qazanfar Roknabadi warned that enemies have hatched plots to sow discord among Muslims.
"The enemies of the Islamic Ummah have always aimed their poisoned arrows of plots and discord at Islam, Muslims and Islamic sanctities and seek to stir religious strife among the Ummah (Islamic community)," Roknabadi said at a gathering in Lebanon on Wednesday.
He underlined the necessity for Muslims' vigilance against enemies' divisive plots, and described unity, distance from division and growing solidarity as a religious must and the key to success in overcoming enemies' plots.
In relevant remarks earlier this year, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei warned Muslim nations against the plots hatched by enemies to sow discord in the Islamic community.
Addressing a group of Iranian officials and the foreign participants in the 26th International Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran in February, Ayatollah Khamenei felicitated the birthday anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and stated that unity among the Islamic community was the main mission of the Holy Prophet.
The Leader pointed to the wave of the Islamic awakening in the Muslim World, and reiterated that the world arrogance targeted the Islamic Awakening movements and aims to divide the Muslims pitting them against each other.
"Therefore, the main duty of the elites in the Muslim world is to help expose the enemies' plots and take serious efforts to materialize the motto of Islamic unity," the Leader underlined.
