The Muslim community has called upon all Zimbabweans to come together and unite in order to eradicate violence and terrorism.

In the face of a rise of terror attacks, the Muslim community in Zimbabwe hosted a seven day unity workshop in the capital which brought together the different schools of thought to debate on how unity and peace can be achieved.

The chief coordinator of the unity workshop Dr Ayatullah Muhammad Mokhtari who is the Director Research And Aproximation School in Iran said in the wake of extremist groups in the world who are disturbing peace and tranquility, there is need for Zimbabweans despite religion or race to increase the common determination to counter the inhumane and barbaric ideology of terrorist groups.

The schools of thought agreed to be united and resist these extremists.

They resolved the need to open an office with a branch of the committee on unity and proximity among Islamic schools of thought in Zimbabwe, which in future will spread its wings to the whole of Southern African countries.
