The Shanti Islamic sect is a relatively new form of Islam, founded and found in Rexxarae. The religious sect was established by Samira Al'Shant (1925-1997) in 1963, and is heavily influenced by western Hippy culture. The Shanti are considered a cult by many, because of their bizarre faith; they condemn violence as the worst of all sins, believing death is better then violent offense. They believe that the time spent working should be no-more then half the time spent resting and spending time with loved ones. They also believe the consumption of any intoxicants (including narcotics) is acceptable, though they do not encourage it. The movement is currently led by Consor Asael Daerimo.
