- Abdu’l-Baha was the eldest son of Baha’u’llah. When Abdu’l-Baha passed away on 28 November 1921, He was eulogized as One who led humanity to the “Way of Truth,” as a “pillar of peace” and the embodiment of “glory and greatness.”
In the midst of civil strife, cholera and hunger in the Houthi controlled area in Yemen, a religious community is being persecuted: the Baha’is. This video, produced by the Baha’is of the Netherlands, shares some of the details of this ongoing persecution through the voice of young Dutch children. The video, while in Dutch, has subtitles in English, Persian, Arabic, and German (if you don’t see them, click on the “CC” icon on the bottom right corner of the video).
You can find out more about the situation on the website of the Baha’i International Community: https://www.bic.org/situation-in-yemen/reports-situation-yemen
