The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed: "It is necessary to guard against the threats and problems, including fomenting discord among different Islamic denominations, particularly between Shia and Sunni denominations."
Stressing that fomenting discord between Shia and Sunni Muslims has ulterior political motives, Ayatollah Khamenei stated: "Besides its policy of Islamophobia, the world of arrogance is seriously pursuing the policy of Shiaphobia and it is necessary to stand up against these efforts in a completely vigilant way."
His Eminence stressed that followers of the Holy Prophet's (s.w.a.) household firmly believe in unity of the Islamic Ummah. "Salvation of the Islamic Ummah, especially Shia Muslims, depends on unity of the Islamic Ummah."
The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that materialistic schools of thought have failed to address the needs and new questions of humanity. He stressed that religious teachings should be presented to Muslim and non-Muslim communities on the basis of their daily needs.
At the end of his statements, Ayatollah Khamenei stressed: "Current developments in the world of Islam promise a bright future and the signs of this bright future and great transformation have become clear."
