- 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 this video the Baha’i International Community (BIC) expresses its deep concerned for the safety of all Baha’is in Yemen following the Houthi prosecutor’s baseless accusations against a member of its community, Hamed bin Haydara, who is appealing his death sentence.
Hamed bin Haydara has been detained since 2013, and following a series of sham trials, Mr. Haydara was sentenced to death in 2018. The court further called for the confiscation of all assets owned by Baha’is and the dissolution of Baha’i institutions. Hundreds of Baha’is face persecution on the basis of their religion in Houthi-controlled areas.
