Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Opressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei has stressed the importance of maintaining unity for Shia and Sunnis in Iran.
Imam Ali Khamenei sent a message of condolence to the people of Sistan-Baluchestan, which was read out by the Leader’s representative in the southeastern province Mohammad Hassan Rahimian at the funeral of the victims of the Thursday terrorist attack.
On July 15, two bomb explosions in quick succession took place outside the Zahedan Grand Mosque. At least 27 people lost their lives and more than 100 others were injured in the terrorist attack, which has widely been blamed on extremist Wahabis and Salafis trained by US intelligence in Pakistan.
The Leader prayed for the recovery of the victims of the Zahedan terrorist attack and urged the people of Sistan-Baluchestan to show perseverance and maintain Shia-Sunni unity, Fars News Agency reported.
