 In light of the power imposed by the Houthi terrorist group on people in its areas of control, and the practice of terrorism of all kinds in order to impose a fait accompli and form roots in the depths of society in order to penetrate and continue to control, and in light of the state of stress, repression, and security and moral restrictions, and with the continued confiscation of freedom, right and  Expression, people in Sana'a find that funerals are an opportunity to express discontent with the authority of Houthi terrorism, as the attendance of funerals in huge numbers represents another form of rejection of the Houthi terrorist project, as happened in the presence of Yemenis at the funeral of the scholar Muhammad Ismail Al-Omrani, as well as the presence of the writer Abdulaziz Al-Maqaleh.

The presence of the funeral, which Sana'a witnessed at the funeral of the scholar Al-Omrani, with such huge numbers of people, was not expected by Al-Houthi, and he was not aware that the people's attendance at the funeral would turn into a referendum and a campaign to reject the Houthi terrorist project, and revealed to him that despite using all means and capabilities to control society, however, people still adhere to the approach of moderation and reject the idea of sectarianism, division and racism carried by the Houthi project. Therefore, their attendance at Al-Omrani's funeral was an opportunity to express their adherence to the moderate urban project and their rejection of the extremist Houthi project, which carries sectarian ideas alien to Yemeni society as a whole. 

Al-Houthi wanted to obliterate Al-Omrani's thought and his lessons by withdrawing the position of Mufti of the Republic from him, and he wanted to divert people from his mosque and seminaries by looting his library and attacking the sanctity of God's house, but God's will was above Al-Houthi's will, as people went out to Al-Omrani's funeral automatically and spontaneously so al-Houthi discovered that his will cannot crush the will of the people, nor can he obliterate the identity, faith and beliefs of a society with ideas that represent in their entirety the Iranian project that is alien to them.

The scene is renewed again, this time at the funeral of the great Abdul-Aziz Al-Maqaleh, the Republican man who spent his life serving his country and the Republic. Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi wants to obliterate the identity of this man, and to erase the echo of his voice on Radio Sana’a during the outbreak of the Republic. He wants to stifle the letters of his poems, and violate the sanctity of literature and writers.

Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi committed a crime against Abdulaziz Al-Maqaleh, when he changed the educational curricula that carried some of Al-Maqaleh’s poems, and replaced them with poems of poets belonging to his sect and owed allegiance to him, because Al-Maqaleh was an important republican who did not waver until his last breath from the idea of equal citizenship advocated by the principles of the Republic, and because Al-Maqaleh fought with the word every voice of the Imamate and struggled to revive the values of coexistence throughout his life, and because Al-Maqaleh was a republican symbol, the terrorist Houthis insulted and belittled him and even fought him.

Despite al-Houthi's attempts to distort and diminish the symbolism of al-Maqaleh among the people, he discovers once again the error of his procedures and beliefs. He discovers once again that the people adhere to the rejection of the Iranian project, and adhere to the principle of equality and the principles of the Republic.  

Through the gathering and the huge crowds that walk behind the funerals, he discovers that there is resistance and that there is a state of strong rejection, and that it is only a matter of time until the dawn of the Day of Resurrection in Sana'a and the outbreak of the republican renewal revolution.

People in Sana'a walk behind the funerals out of respect for their families, and revolt with the sounds of applause and takbeer in the face of the authority of Houthi terrorism, and a picture to the world that no matter how long the Houthi night is, dawn must come and truth will triumph over falsehood and the Yemeni project will triumph over the Iranian one.
