Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the enemies are trying to trigger infighting among Muslims as they are destroying Islamic countries.
“The aim of the enemies today is to set off an internal war among Muslims which they have unfortunately succeeded to some extent,” the Leader said Tuesday on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the Prophet of Islam.
“They are destroying countries one after another. They are destroying Syria, Yemen and Libya. They have Muslims in Bahrain under pressure,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
The Leader criticized Muslim silence in his address to a group of Iranian officials, Muslim ambassadors and participants at an international conference on Islamic unity in Tehran.
“In Nigeria, why is this level of tragedy being brought on that peaceful, pro-proximity and faithful sheikh? Why is the world of Islam silent?” Ayatollah Khamenei said, referring to Sheikh Ibrahim al-Zakzaky who is being held incommunicado in military detention.
