It is encouraging to note that Rumi (b.1207) - the founder of Sufism - and Baha'u'llah (b.1817) - the founder of Baha'i - were born in Persia and followed Islam.
It would be difficult to find two more peace-loving, non-violent religious leaders in all of history.
Sufism emphasizes the Love of God and trust in God's benevolence.
Baha'i teaches that all humanity is One and all creatures are emanations of the Divine.
So any attempts to paint Islam as a violent religion are false.
Look at the beautiful flowers it has given birth to.
