A true Eid is a day when Muslims set aside all differences and draw on Islamic teachings to restore their glory and power, said Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, during a meeting with Iranian officials and diplomats on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.
Over the past years, the enemy has tried to undermine the solidarity of the Iranian nation through provoking sectarian and religious conflicts, a plot which has never been successful, the Leader added.
Addressing Iranian officials and the ambassadors of Muslim countries, Ayatollah Khamenei said division and lack of unity among the Islamic Ummah is why bullying powers interfere in the affairs of Muslims.
“This is why the US senate dares to vote for the Iraq partition plan while the Iraqi people and officials have opposed it,” the Leader concluded.
