Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, the leader of the terrorist Houthi militia, claimed that the Ashura incident, which took place in the 61st year of the Hijrah, (1384 years ago) dates back to what he described as (the origin of the conflict between Islam and infidelity), considering Imam Hussein bin Ali bin Abi Talib “represents an extension of  For authentic Islam, and for the Messenger of God,” as he put it.

Al-Houthi claimed in a speech on Monday, August 8, 2022 , that what he described as (Al-Hussein's revolution) came to counter what he described as (the Umayyad coup against religion...), also considering that "Yazid's rule was a threat to the nation", in  A reference to the historical disputes reported between Al-Hussein bin Ali and Yazid bin Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan, over the eligibility of the succession of power and the assumption of power after the death of Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan in the year 60 AH and the appointment of his son Yazid as his successor at that time.

Al-Houthi accused Yazid bin Muawiyah of what he described as “the desecration of the sanctity of Medina and Mecca, and the burning of the Kaaba,” as he put it, claiming that “America and Israel are the extension of Yazid’s approach….”

The commemoration of Ashura, the tenth of Muharram in Hijri, is one of the controversial points of contention in which the usual controversy and disagreement is renewed every year among Muslims.  The Shiites celebrate Ashura on the grounds that it is a mourning gathering for Imam Hussein, on the anniversary of his martyrdom, as they see it, and in scenes dominated by sadness and sorrow, while the Sunnis commemorate it as a commemoration of the victory of the Prophet Musa and his deliverance from Pharaoh.
