The necessity of unity between Shiite and Sunni in the words of the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran
Is it intended that Muslims should abandon their religion and believe and covert to another religion? No, it is not. When we invite to unity, we do not mean that the difference between Muslims, whether Shiites or Sunnis, or that Shiites and Sunnis are obliged and forced to abandon their beliefs, and find the tendency to third believe. This is something that depends on the research and study of anyone. This is not our issue. Our issue is that we want to say to all Muslims whether Shiite or Sunni, and to remind you that you have common points and points of difference. In some things, you share and think and act, and in some things, each cult has its own way.
