The Muslim community needs to rise above their narrow differences and forge unity and brotherhood in their ranks without any further loss of time otherwise they will continue to fall prey to internal and external conspiracies and will ultimately be eliminated from the face of earth. The only solution to sectarian differences among the Muslims is to comply with the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) both in letter and spirit.
