On the outbreak of the sorrowful month of Muharram, the Saudi authorities demolished a number of Husseini foundations, locally known as Husseiniyat.

Al-Jazeera Merror website said in a news item seen by Shiawaves that "heavily armed forces supported by armored vehicles destroyed the tents and guest houses prepared for the practice of Ashura rituals in Al-Qadayh, where the military teams sabotaged the activities, and turned it to rubbles."

The site published pictures of the guest houses and Husseini foundations, highlighting the barbarism with which the authority dealt with the Husseini rituals, and its assertion that even the distribution of food on the love of Ahlulbait, peace be upon them, is prohibited with weapons.
