INDIAN High Commissioner Vinod Kumar yesterday challenged Sunni Muslims to continue with the good work of Prophet Mohammed.

Speaking at the South Pacific Sunni Muslim headquarters in Labasa, Mr Kumar urged about 600 followers to love one another and work together.

"Prophet Mohammed worked for the poor and he set an example of unity among people he worked with," he said.

"He worked for the poor and the disadvantaged and didn't differentiate between anybody.

"Prophet Mohammed treated everyone equally and didn't discriminate against anyone."

Mr Kumar said such example remained a challenge for some today, adding working together brought harmony and unity among people.

"We should live a life like Prophet Mohammed. He worked for the poor irrespective of colour and race.

"That is the kind of life we should live and love one another as a community."

Mr Kumar said living in unity was an important part of life.
