News articles reiterating Abdel-Malek al-Houthi's statements against Baha'is

On 23 March 2018, Mr. Abdel-Malek Al-Houthi, the leader of the Houthis in
Yemen, gave a speech aimed at rallying Yemenis against foreign powers and
ideologies. In it, he explicitly attacked the Yemeni Baha'i community,
deriding the Baha'i movement as “satanic” and falsely claiming it is “waging
a war of doctrine” against Islam.

Mr. Al-Houthi' s rhetoric was reminiscent of statements made against Baha’is
by Iranian religious leaders, further suggesting the involvement of Iran in
Yemen in the recent attacks on Baha’is.

As documented in the following articles in the Arab news media, Mr.
Al-Houthi also falsely described Baha’is as deniers of Islam. He spread
other falsehoods about the relationship between the Bahá'í Faith and Israel
and Western countries. He urged Yemenis to defend their country against Baha’is
and members of other religious minorities under the pretext that “those who
destroy the faith in people are no less evil and dangerous than those who
kill people with their bombs.”
