By Mir Aqa Popalzai

Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani said insurgent groups will fail in their attempt to create a divide between Shia and Sunni Muslims in the country as the Afghan people remain united against terrorism and extremism.    

Speaking at a gathering of religious scholars and members of the public on the eve of the Night of Revelation of the Holy Quran in Kabul, Ghani also touched on the role of religious scholars in promoting peace and stability in the country.   

“You (terrorists) are targeting our mosques, I assure you that every Sunni Muslim is ready to safe these mosques,” said Ghani, referring to a recent attack by Daesh on a Shia mosque in west of Kabul. - See more at: http://www.tolonews.com/afghanistan/insurgents-won%E2%80%99t-win-battle-divide-shias-and-sunnis-ghani#sthash.89OhMCsL.dpuf
