Sana'a, NewsYemen:

The media of the terrorist Houthi militia, Iran's arm in Yemen, has joined the campaign of incitement targeting members of the Baha'i community, in conjunction with its continued detention of 16 members of the sect.

Sabanet, in its Houthi version, published a lengthy report on the Baha'i sect, in which it claimed that this sect is one of the poisoned arrows of Zionism and global Freemasonry, accusing it of fighting and distorting Islam, obliterating the features of Muslims, weakening them, and sowing division and confusion among them and distancing them from their faith.

The Baha'i faith, according to the international free encyclopedia Wikipedia, is one of the monotheistic religions that derives from the esoteric thought of the Sheikhi Shiite sect.

 It was founded in the nineteenth century in Iran, by Hussein Ali Nuri, nicknamed "Baha'u'llah" who derived his belief from the Babi religion, which was founded by Ali Muhammad Reza Shirazi, nicknamed "al Bab", and as a result there is a historical link between the Baha'i faith and the Babism.

Despite this, the Iranian militias, in their report, said that it is a fabricated man-made religion that claims to have its own prophet, rituals, and beliefs that are reproduced from what Zionism and Freemasonry celebrated, all of which fall under the umbrella of "soft war," as they claim.

The term "soft war" represents the pretext with which the Iranian militias in Sana'a target religious minorities and the political and social forces opposed to them.

Although the Baha'is are among the religious minorities, the Houthi militia, in its report, made it a superpower that seeks to protect Israel, prohibit jihad, target Islam and return the invaders, occupiers and colonizers, as they claim.

The militia media report came the day after a statement by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, expressing concern about the language of incitement to discrimination and violence used by the terrorist Houthi militia, Iran's arm in Yemen, against minorities and religious groups such as the Baha'is.

The spokesman for the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Jeremy Lawrence, said in a press statement, "The arrest of the de facto authorities in Sana'a (known as the Houthis or Ansar Allah) for a group of followers of the Baha'i minority and a subsequent sermon delivered by Shams al-Din Sharaf al-Din, the mufti of the Houthis in Sana'a, Inciting hatred against Baha'is and other religious groups are matters of grave concern."
