An Iranian delegation, headed by Hojat-ol-Islam Hamid Shahriari, secretary general of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought (WFPIST), attended the event as special guests.

It was organized by the Iranian Culture House in Karachi.

In his address as the keynote speaker, Hojat-ol-Islam Shahriari said the enemies are frightened by Islamic unity.

He said unity among Muslims is a Quranic commandment and based on the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

The cleric also referred to the martyrdom anniversary of top Iranian commander Lt. General Qassem Soleimani, saying the senior commander was committed to strengthening unity in the Muslim world.

General Soleimani spared no efforts to help the nations of Iraq and Syria who had been suffering under the rule of the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) terrorist group, he added.

Another speaker, Pakistani politician Assadollah Bhutto, also paid tribute to Martyr Soleimani and lauded his sacrifices in fighting terrorism.

He also stressed the need for Muslims to unite against the US and its allies.

He said the Americans have been humiliated by their defeats in the region and are thus trying to hatch evil plots to foment discord among Muslims.

Allama Syed Ahmad Iqbal Rizvi, deputy secretary general of Pakistan’s Majlis e Wahdat e Muslimeen (MWM), in his speech to the conference reiterated the need for the Islamic world’s unity against common enemies and said weakness of Shias and Sunnis would be detrimental to both schools of thought.

He also criticized some Muslim world rulers’ approach in the face of evil moves by Western powers and called for effective measures by Muslim states to counter Islamophobia.
