Muslim unity

Askia Wajd

Every Muslim group wants unity on its terms, writes a new Muslim making this perceptive observation.

Apart from the Wahhabis, most Muslims talk about unity. This is not enough. Each group regards unity only to be on its terms or under its leadership. Because of this attitude, unity will remain elusive. Islamic Iran has taken the lead and it should be supported. As a Muslim revert, I find it disturbing that while talking about unity, Sunnis and Shi‘is insist on their own interpretation. This leaves us not only confused but also demoralized. We did not leave the white man’s religion to be badgered by brown people’s prejudices.
