A Muslim Demostration Against Sectarianism And Terror

In Bahrain.

A good beginning. They're not about to take my advice.

Chan'ad Bahraini translates the sign as "“No Sunni, No Shia, We are all against exclusivists.“ The last word is "at-takfirah", which is related to the word kafir, meaning unbeliever or apostate. It refers to denouncing someone as a kafir. In short, "against anathematizers."

It took Christianity hundreds of years and millions of dead to learn this lesson. Let's hope Muslims learn it sooner.
