Scholars Adamant That No Group Will Divide Afghan Shia And Sunnis

Prominent Shia and Sunni scholars on Wednesday said that no force, no country and no group will be able to sow the seeds of sectarianism among the people of Afghanistan.

The leading scholars, both Sunni and Shia, came together at a meeting in Kabul to discuss the issue.

They said that Shia and Sunni Muslims have lived peacefully together throughout Afghanistan’s history.

They called on the Afghan government to step up efforts to tackle the enemies who are working to destroy national unity.

The statement comes a few days after four suicide attackers linked to Daesh launched a deadly attack on a mosque in Kabul killing over 30 worshipers and wounding dozens more.

The scholars slammed these suicide attacks and said they were against Islamic principles and human values.
