To remind Muslims the lesson of unity and shun animosity Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged Muslims to end war in Yemen by quoting verses from Holy Quran.
Quoting verses from Surah al-Imran Putin urged Muslims to an end the war in Yemen that has been waged there for years by a coalition of Muslim countries led by Saudi Arabia.
According to RT, speaking in Ankara on Monday alongside Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, Putin introduced a particular line from the Muslim holy book, known as the Surah al-Imran.
“And remember the favor of Allah upon you – when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers,” the Russian president quoted.
Putin also referenced another Koranic teaching, about how violence is only legitimate in self-defense, to semi-jokingly suggest that Saudi Arabia should buy Russian air defense systems, as Iran and Turkey have already done.
