What does not unify us will divide us: Qabbani
A+ A-

BEIRUT: On the eve of the Prophet’s Birthday, Lebanon’s grand mufti, Sheikh Mohammad Rashid Qabbani, warned against any action that would incite sectarian strife. 

Lebanon is going through dangerous and critical circumstances and we should be aware that an action that does not unify will lead to division among the Lebanese,” Qabbani said in a statement Sunday. 

“Wise people should recognize the sensitivity of the situation in Lebanon because the country’s security and stability are everyone’s responsibility.” 

A flurry of political activity has raised hopes that a new government will be formed before the presidential election in May after eight months of stagnation. 

There is “hope that trust will be restored between Lebanon’s leaders so that a government can be formed to restore normalcy,” he said.
