IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST BENEFICENT, THE MOST MERCIFUL
IMRAN SHAYKH, AUGUST 2016
FEEDBACK
"The fifth Bahai principle is that sexual prejudice, religious prejudice, spiritual prejudice, national prejudice, and political prejudice are the destroyers of human foundations and any form of prejudice ruins the basis of humankind. Not until these prejudices are removed, will the human world attain tranquility. The proof for [this claim] is that all wars and battles and all enmities and hatreds which have occurred amongst humans were either the result of national prejudice or the result of political prejudice. The human world has not seen peace for 6000 years and the reason for this lack of peace is these prejudices. Until there is prejudice, there will be war, there will be hatred, there will be enmity, and there will be inconvenience. If the human world is to attain comfort, we must dump all these prejudices or else tranquility will be impossible."

The definition of the Removal of Prejudice is that all forms of prejudice, whatsoever, must be put aside.

Abdul Baha says: National prejudice is also [rooted in] pure ignorance. For the surface of Earth is a single nation and all of planet earth is manís home. Man has created these limits and borders and these limits and borders did not exist in nature . . . as for economical prejudice, it is obvious that the increase in international relations and exchanging goods and every economical center which is created in any land, will inevitably expand to other lands and general welfare will show itself. So, why have prejudice? But regarding political prejudice, Godís policies must be followed and it is very clear that divine policies are grander than human policies. We must follow divine policies for He is the same to all people and has no difference. He is the base of all divine religions.
Abdul Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 3, pp. 105-106

Let us embark on the journey to check out this principle of Removal of All Prejudices.
