"Love for Ali (AS) is part of being a Sunni and those who do not have that are not Sunni" he said.
The former president of Afghanistan also added that while this love is indeed part of being Sunni, it also leads to love for all. He stated that: "The love for Ahl Al-Bayt (AS) is cherished by Sunnis and the Sunni consider the enemies of Ahl Al-Bayt (AS) as their own enemies."
