Hujjat-ul-Islam Rahim Abulhosseini, cultural deputy of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought in an interview with Taqrib News Agency (TNA) related on the unifying role of Imam Khomeini (RA) and warned of division among Muslims.
He said,” Imam Khomeini (RA) did not maintain Islamic unity as a strategy and called on elites, intellectuals and political figures to maintain Islamic unity under the guidelines of holy Qur’an and affection for the Prophet of Islam (PBUH).
The cleric added,” In view of Imam Khomeini one should strive both for building solidarity and also for rejection of disunity and the elements behind that; hence, unity in the remarks of the late leader also translates to avoiding disunity.”
According to the director of center for proximity studies American-style Islam is a divisive version of Islam promoted by the US and its pawns while true Islam is the holy religion which unifies members of the Islamic nation.
Hujjat-ul-Islam Abulhosseini said,” The most important unifying measure by Imam Khomeini was to establish Islamic system as a step to maintain solidarity and prevent infiltration of enemies.”
Top cleric made the comments on 31st passing anniversary of Imam Khomeini (RA). He serves as the cultural deputy of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought.
