    • Factbox: UN aid programs in Yemen at risk of going broke AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): of some 20 million Yemenis who are food insecure, nearly 10 million are acutely food insecure. More than 3.6 million Yemenis have been displaced by conflict. Disease is rife and the United Nations says the health system has effectively collapsed. Program reductions had already started in some areas, UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, Lise Grande, told Reuters: The World Food Program, which feeds more than 12 million Yemenis a month, in April halved rations in northern areas. It needs funding for existing operations and to ramp back up operations in the north. One week before the first COVID-19 case was announced in Yemen on April 10, the World Health Organization was forced to suspend payments to 10,000 health workers. Programs for pregnant and lactating women are being shut in 140 healthcare facilities. Immunization programs are being suspended. Fifty-one primary healthcare clinics have closed. Depending on the amount of money raised, Grande said more cuts or closures could follow: Basic health services provided at 189 hospitals and 200 primary healthcare units could be lost. Some 6.5 million people including those in areas with cholera could lose water and sanitation services. Nutrition programs for 2 million malnourished children would have to be shut. https://en.abna24.com/news//factbox-un-aid-programs-in-yemen-at-risk-of-going-broke_1042941.html  
    • @Ashvazdanghe Pardon me? I'm sorry I didn't mean to offend you, but I am asking a legitimate question, not at all trying to call Iranians this or that. Perhaps this is what @OrthodoxTruth meant when he said Iranians are ultranationalists. 
    • Scholars were called Imam before Imam Khomeini, it's not like it just appeared or he created the idea or something. For example, Ayatollah Muhammad Al-Khalisi was commonly referred to as Al-Imam Al-Khalisi, or for example, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein Kashef Al-Ghataa was referred to as Al-Imam Kashef Al-Ghataa, who were both before Imam Khomeini began propogating Wilayatul Faqih. Also you saying that any of the views of Imam Khomeini and Wilayatul Faqih must be viewed in light of Quran and Ahadith (which is true, as everything should be looked at in this light) is quite funny. Do you have a source saying you can't call anyone other than the Ma'sumeen as Imams? Even the opposition to Wilayatul Faqih, like the followers of Seyyed Muhammad Al-Shirazi and his family members, use the word Imam (Seyyed Muhammad Al-Shirazi is referred to as Imam Muhammad Al-Shirazi by many, his books are even titled this way). Just because you are not used to this type of language doesn't make it wrong. As for Rasulullah, the Messengers of Allah were literally given messages by Allah, they didn't only "spread the message," they brought the message to Earth in the first place, making them the Messengers. A scholar spreading the message of Allah through what was revealed to the Messengers would be more of a "messenger of the Messengers of Allah" rather than a "Messenger of Allah" (Al-‘iyadhu Billah).  And as for the word "Imam," it is unspecific. It's just "leader" rather than, for example, "Leader of the Creations," which are what the Holy Imams are. Although, there are scholars who are against calling other scholars "Imam," but, one, I don't know of one who actually considers it Haram, rather they just prefer to stay away from it out if caution and respect for the Holy Imams, and, two, they actually attempt to argue it, with respect shown to everyone (e.g. Seyyed Muhammad Sadiq Al-Sadr wouldn't call Imam Khomeini "Imam", only "Seyyed"), not whatever this little arrogant and condescending bit you wrote here is.

    • This have been silenced for a very long time. I wonder why. I don't believe this is fake news. I have heard many similar stories from afghans that tried to get to the west through iran. How they are pretty much torturing and killing some of them. The military/police or the border guards. I have heard this from several afghan refugees. Why would they lie about it?, all of them being shia. I don't understand why noone is condemning this. From my understanding, they don't want afghans in their country, especally the hazaras. This is something I have not seen much in the main stream media, so to call this a propaganda is very wrong. Something is clearly happening to the afghans trying to get themselves to iran. And I do not support oppression even if the country declares to be shia and follow wilayat al faqih. This is clearly wrong, and needs to be investigated.
    • Children of ex-Saudi official in exile missing since detention in March: Family His children were arrested 10 days after the detention of bin Nayef and another senior prince, Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, a brother of King Salman and an uncle of bin Salman, also known as MbS. Prior to his detention, bin Nayef had effectively been under house arrest since his ouster in the 2017 coup that brought MbS to power. In his talks with Guardian, Khalid, now living in Canada, described the detentions of his siblings as an act of vengeance by the crown prince to force the father to return to Saudi Arabia. He said that Sarah and Omar were among the first victims of the kingdom’s purge of royal family members over an alleged coup attempt to unseat King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his son MBS. Their ordeal began on the day Prince Mohammed became crown prince in 2017, said Khalid. https://en.abna24.com/news//children-of-ex-saudi-official-in-exile-missing-since-detention-in-march-family_1043172.html
    • Explain how they were not of the Sahaba. 
    • you lie , you always call Iranian Shias as Khomeinist & Khameneist that dirctly comes from dirty mouth of wahabist Nawasib against Shia Muslims in Iran ( I don't  count you like them but in every post about Iran you use abusive language against  Iranians Shias &you lable them as  Khomeinist & Khameneist ) that now  you use a propaganda against  Iran to spread hatred between  Iranians & Afghan shias.
