May I request the media, through your august paper not to invite known hardliner Ulema and Muftis, of various sects on their talk shows, to discuss the Yemen-Saudi conflict as more often than not their views culminate in a sectarian verbiage portraying it to be a war between Saudi Arabia and Iran? While it is incumbent upon all Muslims to safe guard the integrity of Holy Ka’aba they are apparently in no danger at present. As such their safety need not be subjected to the safety of the Saudi rulers, which are being lumped together. A great hue and cry is raised to save the democracy, whenever a ruling govt. faces a serious threat from the opposition. Yemeni uprising is a purely political internal affair and no other country Muslim or Non-Muslim, including Saudi Arabia should interfere in their internal affairs.
