Muftis Council Visits Miqati: We Asked Him to Take Appropriate Stand to Thwart Strife

The Muftis council in Lebanon, headed by Grand Mufti Mohammad Rashid Qabbani, urged on Tuesday Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati to “thwart strife in Lebanon in light of the parliamentary consultations to form a new government in Lebanon.”

It called on him to “take the appropriate stand that would avert strife and prevent Lebanon from falling into chaos and the trap of the conspiracy being devised against the Lebanese, and Muslims in particular.”

The council made its position in a statement after paying Miqati a visit at his Beirut office.

The meeting also addressed ways to end the crisis that started to deteriorate after the announcement of his appointment as prime minister-designate.

They also handed him a copy of the statement they issued on Sunday in which they announced their and the Sunnis’ stand from the current developments in Lebanon.
