Scholars and academics stress the need to confront the crime of Al-Houthi’s distortion of educational curricula

Yemeni scholars, preachers, intellectuals and academics have stressed the importance of confronting the process of changing the educational curricula that the terrorist Houthi militia is carrying out in Yemen, targeting the Yemeni generation, and trying to smear its Islamic faith and national identity.

This came in a seminar held by the Yemeni Al-Minbar Center for Studies and Media, through the (Zoom) program, on Tuesday evening 11/24/2020, under the title (Educational Curricula in Yemen … Houthi Dangers and Ways of Confrontation), in which politicians, intellectuals and media professionals participated.

In the first paper, a member of the Program for Communication with Yemeni Scholars, Sheikh / Abu Al-Hassan Al-Marabi, spoke about the role of Yemeni scholars in confronting the bulldozing of the Houthi educational curricula, and emphasized that the curricula define identity and unify the intellectual system that forms the foundations of society, and achieves coalition and coherence.

Al-Marabi pointed out that the Yemeni curricula preserved moderation and was characterized by comprehensiveness of all matters of the world and the hereafter, as well as the praiseworthy change in matters of life, and preserved the Sharia curricula to preserve the doctrine from erosion.

And Sheikh Al-Marabi called for the Houthi ideological and ideological invasion to stand together, so that the generations would not be absent.

He warned that the razing by the Houthi movement on educational curricula will have disastrous effects and will lead to a generation that is split from its nation, and that its predecessor is seen as enemies of God and warriors of religion due to their disagreement with this abnormal group.

Sheikh Al-Marabi said: The rulers of the matter must preserve this legacy, the “curriculum” that was inherited by those who had previously been sincere, so that the Yemenis, with their groups and their parties, lived tolerant decades until someone who wanted to strip this generation of what was in it of the good came, so that a generation separated from the honorable ones came.

He called on every person from his position and at the forefront of scholars to preserve the educational curricula, perform the duty that they have to protect society and protect it from suspicions, away from issues of scientific luxury, and broadcast moderate moderate ideas that address the mind, conscience and feelings.

Al-Marabi praised the role of political parties in protecting society intellectually and that they must unify the ranks in front of the hateful project against Yemen, and realize the danger of the Houthi ideology to everyone, especially the national heritage.

In the second paper: Mr. Abdo Muhammad Salem discussed the dimensions and motives of the Houthi militia in changing the educational curriculum, which aims to undermine the bonds of the Yemeni state and Yemeni society, and the references of the state and society, leading to the targeting of identity.

He said that the Houthis are seeking to penetrate the referential sovereign concept of the Yemeni state and society and to accommodate the principle of guardianship as a supreme political idea and to consolidate it in the emerging as the Houthi is the imam, the reference and the legislator, and they are also working on striking the historical and cultural foundations of the Yemeni people and reviving the historical role of the priestly imamate.

Salem referred to the Houthis’ attempt to harness and adapt the Sunni community to serve as a servant in a way that leads to the creation of a sect that serves and a ruling sect that calls itself the flags of guidance, in addition to tearing the national social fabric and reformulating Yemeni tasks in a way that creates a degree of variation to hit society together.

He warned of Houthi efforts to strike at the foundations of Islamic history and the Prophet’s biography and questioning the justice of the Companions in preparation for disseminating the Imami theory and the theory of the Batin and marketing the references of the Houthi movement, by marketing the war and giving it misleading concepts.

Salem pointed out that Al-Houthi works by changing the curricula to demonize the Yemeni revolution and its symbols and strike its center, highlighting the prestige of national symbols, reformers and free people in the hearts of Yemenis, and listing the events and personalities of the Houthi movement as an alternative to it.

Salem revealed one of al-Houthi’s motives behind changing the educational curricula, and that the most prominent of which is the spread of the Houthi rite geographically through the school curriculum, making him the bearer of the front dress to Yemeni regions where the sect had no presence, and creating a fanatical generation armed with sectarian sectarian ideas and implementing the idea with hatred and violence.

For his part, a member of the Program for Communication with Yemeni Scholars, Sheikh Dr. Muhammad Rajeh, presented a paper on the dangers of changing educational curricula for the future of Yemen, and confirmed that Al-Houthi presents himself as an alternative to Islam, rooting for polytheism, glorifying graves and shrines, and reproducing the Iranian experience.

He pointed to the Houthi’s endeavor to distort the religion and Sharia in a manner commensurate with the idea of ​​the imamate and the guardianship, and his approach to excessive exaggeration in his person and the personality of the family of the House of the Twelver Twelver, and the Houthi movement’s keenness to ignore and mislead future generations, falsify history, change facts, and implant dynasticism, racism and class.

Sheikh Muhammad Rajeh said that the changes made by Al-Houthi corrupt and nullify minds, ideas and awareness, and sow backwardness, reaction and complete surrender of everything he does, eliminating infrastructure and service projects, and convincing people to blood and fight.

He pointed to the danger of cloning myths and slogans and working to root the Houthi revolution and the coup by force among the generation, and considering violating this a crime.

Ibn Rajeh talked about the Houthi changes rooted in the curricula in terms of tricks to collect funds and gradually spread Shiite pagan beliefs, leading to the challenge of the Qur’an, as well as working on the youth market and mobilizing them to fight and graduate ignorant generations.

For his part, Dr. Kamal Al-Qatawi discussed in his paper ways to confront the Houthis’ change of educational curricula, referring in this regard to the struggle of two identities: the first is a national identity based on Islam, Yemen, and the Republic, and the other is an imamate identity based on: Shiism, dynasty, and the Imamate.

And he considered that the first way to confront this process is to build educational curricula that preserve faith, entrench national identity, and unify the intellectual ground.

He suggested that the Ministry of Education form educational teams to formulate the curricula of national education and history in a way that achieves the rooting of the Islamic identity and the consolidation of the national identity, stressing the reconsideration and development of the curricula.

Al-Qutawi urged to re-read Yemeni history, read the crime of the Imamate on Yemen, write Yemeni history and Yemeni symbols, and take advantage of lessons so that the tragedies left by the Imamate are not repeated, and he stressed the dismantling of the nodal roots of the Houthi movement.

He called on the government to form a committee to monitor the phenomenon of changing curricula and to put pressure on organizations that support printing distorted curricula to stop this support. He also called on the Ministry of Endowments and Guidance to formulate a comprehensive national discourse guide that preserves the national identity.

Al-Qutawi stressed the role of civil society to protect Yemeni identity and education curricula with a graceful speech that reaches all segments of society, explaining the role of Yemeni channels in documenting Houthi crimes, and stressing that the pioneers of humanitarian work should play their role in the field of education, culture and caring for the family.
