US designates Houthis as violators of religious freedom

Alsahwa Net- The State Department of the United States of America (USA) added on Friday the Houthis group to the list of religious freedom violators.

The US state department said that the Houthis group as well as other ten militant groups including Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda and Boko Haram were designated to the list of religious freedom violators the by the US Commission on International Religious Freedom.

The US and other international human rights organizations expressed their concern on the Houthis’ treatment with the religious minorities such as the Baha’is.

The United Nations Human Rights Council released last September a resolution that condemned the Houthis for their religious-based intimidation against the Baha’is.

The resolution based its conclusion on the report by the UN Security Council Panel of Experts on Yemen which reported continued religious- based crackdown by the Houthis on the Baha’is.

Reported intimidations included detention, charges of apostasy, humiliation of the Baha’i followers, labeling them as devils and sentencing some of them into death.
