The Libyan Mufti, Sheikh Al-Sadiq Al-Gharyani has called on Libyans to be united in order to save the country, which he said is under destruction threats, urging them as well to leave the past behind and start over for the sake of Libya.

The Mufti urged the fighters, whom he described as fighting "invading mercenaries and setting an example by their sacrifices for the unity of all Libyan parties: Presidential Council, High Council of State, General National Congress members and others" for unity.

He also called on preachers, political analysts, activists, and all other Libyans to forget the past, saying the disagreements of years had brought misfortunes and bloodshed in the country and adding that all Libyans ought to be united at this time.

"Libya is under attack now and we all should be united in order to overcome it. All those who speak in public to cause chaos and division are making mistakes punishable by religion as they lead to killings and destruction. The enemy is cunning and has a long history of crimes and will be happy for the division among his opponents." The Mufti added.

He urged social media users to stop the verbal war and to leave the past behind as it is "Haram" to talk about the past at this point because it causes division.

Sheikh Al-Sadiq Al-Gharyani indicated that forgetting about the past actions of others needs courage and helps boost the victory chances for the whole country.
