The leader of the Anssarallah Movement, Sayyed Abdul-Malik al-Houthi has on Monday attacked Saudi regime attacked the Saudi regime’s decision to ban the rituals of hajj this year.
He stressed that the arbitrary measures to prevent the pilgrimage of Muslims from other countries is one of the major crimes practiced by the Saudi regime as part of its subversive role against the nation.
“The Saudi regime does not take care of the sanctity of the Islamic nation, which has the right to perform this duty to the sacred feelings that do not belong to it,” he said.
“The deviant Saudi regime does not take care about the sanctity of sacred feelings and does not take care of the sanctity of a great pillar of Islam,” he stated.
Al-Houthi pointed out that the Saudi regime facilities all services to the crazy parties and opens the way for gatherings in a way that reveals the truth of its orientations, while restricting the procedures of the Hajj.
That was a heartbreaking moment when you watch the holy places in Mecca is desolate and empty, with only a few pilgrims, he added.
He noted that preventing of Hajj was considered as a violation against one of the foundations of the Islam, which God wants to be a universal Islamic obligation.
Sayyed Abdul-Malik also stressed that “one of the crimes of the Saudi regime that serves the enemies of the nation is its continued “aggression” under the supervision of the United States and Britain on Muslim people.”
He pointed out that the “aggression” continues to commit the most heinous crimes against our people and its siege and prevent the access of food, medicine, oil derivatives and the requirements of life.
Sayyed Abdul-Malik called on the Yemeni people to continue to support the fronts with money and men, and to confront the ongoing war, which is practicing murder, destruction and sabotage, blockade and starvation in Yemen.
Leader of Anssarallah also called for the social solidarity, sympathy with the poor people and strengthening of fraternal ties and keeping the home front, and cooperation on righteousness and piety.
He praised the Yemeni army and popular committees for the great victories in al-Baidha province and other fronts, stressing that those victories are a clear evidence of the great results of patience, action, sacrifice and responsibility.
Sayyed al-Houthi congratulated the Yemeni people and those stationed on the front lines, and the Islamic nation on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.
“This holy holiday has fallen this year while the nation is witnessing difficult circumstances, great challenges and serious events,” Said Abdul Malik al-Houthi, in a statement issued late Monday.
“Eid al-Adha commemorates the historic anniversary of total submission to God’s command and the full credibility of faith in the story of full willingness to sacrifice,” he said, noting that “the rituals of Hajj are rooted in human beings and followers of prophets the educational lesson that qualifies man to move forward in the path of truth.”
