    The Baha’i Faith is not an ‘off-shoot’ of Islam any more than Christianity is an ‘off-shoot’ of Judaism.
    It is an independent religion whose Founder was Persian. The persecution of a Faith which teaches the unity of all humanity; the concept of the oneness of God and all religion; the equality of men and women and the harmony of science and religion is the gravest of injustices. Its presentation the other night in ‘Around the World in 80 Faiths’ more than testifies to its unifying power.
