Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council for Lebanese Shia Muslims, Sheikh Abd al-Amir Qablan on Saturday condemned cold-blood murder of prominent Shia Muslim cleric Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi authorities, saying the act aimed to undermine Islamic unity.

The Saudi government’s act was actually the assassination of wisdom, moderation and dialogue, Qablan said.

The assassination of Sheikh al-Nimr was a big mistake, Qablan said, noting that the Saudi King could issue a decree to prevent the sectarian and ethnic conflicts which have embattled the entire region like a storm.

He reiterated that the Saudi kingdom's criminal act will bear consequences in coming days; IRAN reported.
