In Unity Is Our Security: Baha’i Wisdom For Violent Times

January 11, 2011 – 11:43am

In the aftermath of the recent shootings of political figures in Pakistan and Arizona, Homa Sabet Tavangar writes in The Huffington Post about the need to embrace oneness and shares a quote from Baha’u’llah, the Founder of the Baha’i Faith, who stated, “The well-being of mankind, its peace and security are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established.

“How many wake-up calls do we need before we rethink our commitment to bringing opposing viewpoints together for the common good, so that differences don’t spur violence?” writes Tavangar. “As we start 2011, how can we do better?”
