World arrogance pursuing plan to defame Islam worldwide

Mahabad, West Azarbaijan prov, Jan 15, IRNA – World arrogant powers are to defame Islam by sowing discord among Muslims, Head of the Basij (Volunteer) Organization Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said Wednesday.

Addressing a local gathering in this western provincial city, Naqdi said enemies are to portray a tough image of Islam worldwide by triggering war among Muslims while Islam is the messenger of peace and friendship to all nations.

The meeting was held on the occasion of the Unity Week marking the birth anniversary of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH).

Criticizing enemies' plots against different Islamic sects, Naqdi said by using their mercenaries in the Islamic countries and carrying out terrorist attacks, enemies of Muslims are fanning the flame of disputes among Shiites and Sunnis.

He stressed enemies would have no success in their plots as long as Muslim nations maintained their unity.
