EghtesadOnline: President Hassan Rouhani warned against the enemies' efforts to undermine the unity of Muslims in line with Islamophobia plots.
'The divisions that have taken place in recent years through practice of massacre and violence and in the name of Islam has been created by the enemy and are in line with implementation of big plot named Islamophobia,' President Rouhani said, addressing a meeting of Supreme Cultural Revolution Council in Tehran on Tuesday.
According to IRNA, he pointed to the unity of Shiites and Sunnis as fundamental principles of the political thought of the Islamic Revolution, and said that the enemy has been trying to undermine the same unity.
In relevant remarks in early May, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Islamophobia, Iranophobia and confronting Shiism are the definite policies the US has been pursuing.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks during a meeting with a number of senior officials of the country, ambassadors of the Islamic countries in Iran and people from different strata.
The meeting was held to mark the anniversary of the auspicious occasion of Eid ul-Mabath, the day when Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was appointed as the messenger of Allah.
Referring to the recent allegations made by US that Iran’s policies in the region triggered the wave of sanctions and confrontations with the country, the leader said this is absolute ignorance.
Ayatollah Khamenei further stressed that humanity today, more than any other time in the history is in need of a true understanding of the meaning and truth of Be'that of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
On the opposite side of Be'that is ignorance, said the Supreme Leader stressing that ignorance is still running high today, just the same way the notion of Be'that is still alive.
