Islamabad: Imam-e-Kaaba Shaikh Khalid al-Ghamidi today urged the people of Saudi Arabia and Iran to unite over the Holy Quran and Sunnah. He said Daesh, Taliban have no link with Islam.

Speaking exclusively to a private news channel, the Imam urged Saudi Arabia and Iran to shun their differences.

The Imam said that enemies want to hurt Muslims by creating divisions within their ranks, and that the unity of the Muslim Ummah is the need of the hour. "As the Imam of Haram Sharif, I call upon all Muslims, whether it is our Saudi or Iranian brothers, to unite over the Holy Quran and Sunnah. Today, our enemy does not want to see us united. They want to see us divided like this," he said. "A Muslim is the flag-bearer of Quran and Sunnah. It is critical that we unite while shunning sectarian differences," he said.

Speaking about Taliban and the Islamic State or Daesh militant groups, the Imam said that those who misinterpret the Quran and apply Quranic verses about infidels on other Muslims are “Khwarij”. He said that Pakistani people and Parliament are on the same page regarding defending the Harmain Sharifain, but they are not on the same page regarding Yemen issue. He said that during his trip he had a chance to meet people and the way they are ready to tender any sacrifice for defending the Harmain Sharifain, is unprecedented.

He said that history is witness that Saudi Arabia never committed atrocity on its neighbor or citizens we tried to settle this matter through reconciliation. He said that the fight of Houthis is not confined to Yemen, but they have threatened to attack and take over Makkah.
