Shaikh Abdol-Hamid urged on unity in “act” in his latest Friday speech of 16th March, 2018 and termed “creating balance among ethnic and religious sects” necessary for unity and peace.
The official website of the Friday imam of Sunnis in Zahedan said: “All ethnic and religious communities should be next together with unity and solidarity. Unity cannot be achieved just by words.”
“We cannot be united by mere slogans and desires; we should be together actually,” he added more.
Provincial directors should show tolerance & foresight
Mawlana Abdol-Hamid went on to say more: “I’d like to call on provincial directors and managers that whenever any Baloch or Sistani and settlers of other provinces get any directorship, they should behave with tolerate and foresight.”
“The members of the parliament, directors and authorities which examine and survey competence of in public services should show a broad mind. The authorities should not prefer only one sect; development can be achieved by removing sectarian views and giving chance to both Shia and Sunni communities,” he added more.
The president of Darululoom Zahedan addressed the ethnic and religious communities of Sistan-Balochistan and said: “Dear Baloch and Sistani citizens, Shias and Sunni! You have mutual enemies inside and outside of the country. Some elements from the both sects believe in monopolization. However, we are brothers in religion, country and humanity.”
“There should be a balance between Shias and Sunnis and different ethnic communities in employment. The authorities should realize and focus on all residents of this province. The MPs also should avoid bias and bigotry preferring only their communities,” he underlined.
Shaikh Abdol-Hamid clearly said: “I consider monopolists who want all posts for their own community ‘enemies of the province’s advancement and security’. We want the authorities to sideline fanatic elements who only harm societies.”
“Make the people next together; this policy affects neighbor countries. We should be together and realize each other,” he added more.
How respond arrogant powers?
Urging on ‘actual unity’, Khateeb of Sunnis said: “Sunnis live in different provinces and corners of the country; I’d like to call on officials and Mr. Rouhani to take care of their Sunni brothers. Wherever Sunnis live along with Shias, there should a balance in posts and due rights of all sides should be realized in act. This is the best response to sinister powers and international arrogance.”
“Conferences and seminars are useful, but they have not met with the needs of Muslims. We have to be pragmatic; just the unity conference and the ‘organization of the approximating Islamic sects’ are not enough for unity,” he added more.
In the beginning of his speech, Shaikh Abdol-Hamid invited the audience to pray to Allah preferring the narrated prays in the Qur’an and Sunnah.
He said: “Misdeeds and sins are the ways towards Satan and destruction. While the worships and seeking forgiveness are the ways to Allah. A nation that abides with repentance and seeking the forgiveness of Allah will never face destruction and divine punishment.”
