Sunnis and Shiites hold Iftar get-together in capital of Russia

Shia community in Russia hosted Iftar get-together on Thursday, the 26th July-2013 in Moscow.

"The purpose of this event is to maintain the unity between Sunnis and Shiites," the head of the Shia community in Russia said.

"Global arrogance seeks to create division among Islamic countries in a bid to pave the way for sectarian wars, so our community by holding such gathering will defeat enemy plots," he added.

Russia is home to some 20 million Muslims, 2 million of which are Shia.
