Ancestors of the modern day Khawarij

Below are descriptions of the early Khawarij taken from the book “Violence and Belief in Late Antiquity” By Thomas Sizgorich (a non-Muslim author and hence a takfiri cannot charge of being a “biased Soofee”). One can see from it how much the Khawarij of today resemble their ancestors in their ideology, slogans, piety, takfirism & violence.  An exception can be made that the Kharijites back then lived during the time of Salaf and as a result they had some of the piety of the righteous salaf, while the Kharijites of today live during the worst of times in terms of Islamic piety, and hence are the worst of the Kharijites history has ever witnessed.
