Do these ashkenazi chareidim have any idea how grave a sin this is? They are driving a huge rift between Jews. If they had love in their hearts for those Jews they consider "less religious" they would want to influence them. Instead they are haughty and arrogant, which Hashem hates. Without achdut terrible things will befall us. We will never bring redemption and the third temple until we rectify the sin of sinat chinam. This kind of thing moves us further away from that goal, not closer towards it. Woe to us all (religious, modern and secular) if we can't find a way to unite.
