Anyone in the world regardless of religion has right to live and practice their belief as per our Islam. If Shia have some difference of opinion, let it be. And if sunni belief they are right, they need to show the true spirit of Islam.......and nothing more then that. A sunni brother

Assalam u alaykum wrwb, I really dont understand why "our" news channels promote this 'Sunni-Shia' divide. Its an obvious and really, quite an ancient ploy of the enemy: Divide and Conquer. Its not a Shia neighbourhood that was ravaged or Sunni people who were targetted. It is simply MUSLIMS. We are under attack. All of us. It is our brothers and sisters that are being so ruthlessly killed. We are ONE. Allah swt guides us in the Quran, In Surah Al'e imran, verse 103- meaning of which translates as: 'And hold fast by the convenant of Allah all "together" and be not disunited..' Let us together unite and fight the enemy who are trying to disillusion our minds and break us up. Because really, any person who watches the Muslims of the Plain of Arafat on 9th ZilHajj knows that together, united, we are a force to be reckoned with.

We all humans, are brothers. It is not Shia vrs Sunni or Hindu Vrs Muslim. It is man vrs monsters. If one looks at another human being as enemy, the result is what we all saw in 1947, and even now in Karachi or Quetta. Look at another human being as a human being, not what brand of God and how he seeks spirtual guidance.
