Tell that to the Muslims who were following Mu'awiyah or to the Persian under Umar RA whose lands Arab tribes conquered. Aysha (RA) is "allegedly" one of those who most pointed to Ali (RA) as a reason for Uthman (RA)'s death. Who were the killers of Hasan (RA) and Husayn (RA)? Its Muslims who did all that, Muslims in one form or another. And this sectarianism and violence for vendettas and politics continues today in the Muslim lands. This isnt about Deen, it is very much about politics.
