A fundamentalist cleric described the Yemeni noble peace prize winner as a " criminal, and traitor" calling her for repentance.
" Tawakul Karman was given the prize of Jews and Christians as a reward for her major treason of Islam, State and the People," said The Salafi cleric Mohammed Al Emam in a lengthy lecture on Ms Karman.
" This woman corrupted the women and men, and she and those like her need to repent to Allah Almighty before they die," said Al Emam in his lecture which was widely distributed in Yemen by followers this week.
Mohammed Al Emam, heads one of the largest and most famous and extremist Salafi schools in Yemen.
In addition to his School, located in town of Mabar, some 70 km south of the Yemeni capital Sanaa, there are about 4,000 other similar Salafi schools scattered all over the poor country.
Gulf Salafi businessmen and other religious groups, especially from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait, financially and logistically support these schools.
"This woman called for rebellion against Allah, and his Messenger and Hejab, and this a criminal call," said the Salafi cleric who has tens of thousands of followers in Yemen.
Al Emam also blasted Tawakul's party, the Islamist party, Islah and called its leaders to repent to Allah Almighty as well for dealing with the enemies, in clear reference to Americans and Westerners in general.
