A senior Iranian cleric has warned against schemes aimed at sparking discord among Muslims, hailing Iraqi parties for putting an end to a prolonged post-poll impasse. The enemies have lost hope in progress through military means and have resorted to fueling differences between Shia and Sunni Muslims, and even tried to create a rift within these faiths, Tehran’s interim Friday Prayers leader Â Hojjatoleslam Kazem Seddiqi said.Shiite News reported.
“Therefore, all [Muslims] need to be aware so that this solidarity is not harmed,” IRNA quoted the cleric as saying.
Hojjatoleslam Seddiqi also praised the Iraqi politicians’ agreement on the formation of a new government months after the country’s inconclusive general elections in May.
“With God’s help and despite obstacles [created] by Americans, the former [Iraqi] president and prime minister were reinstated thanks to the awareness on the part of Iraqi people and authorities,” Hojjatoleslam Seddiqi said.
