Britan has created Wahhabism as a tool to control Muslims. It backfired badly.

It didn't create Wahhabism, but it definitely used its movement to create Saudi Arabia.

I'm pretty confident this is wrong. Wahhabism was created 300 years ago when a cleric named Wahhab formed alliance with a prince named Saud on the Saudi peninsula. This was also the beginning of Saudi Arabia.
The British government created the Baha'i religion. I believe you've gotten confused on this one.

"The Wahhabist sect was founded by Muhammed ibn Abd al-Wahhab. He railed against what he saw as the apostate condition of Islam in 18th century Arabia. He gathered together a group of discipiles and in 1744 he made an alliance with Muhammed ibn Saud, who ruled the small oasis town of Daraiya in central Arabia. This alliance was based on the teachings of ibn Taimiiya, a medieval reformer who believed the perfect Islamic society would be composed of two classes of authority: the ulama, who know sharia; and the umara, who wield the political power necessary to enforce it. The alliance between ibn Saud and al-Wahhab became the basis upon which the modern state of Saudi Arabia was established almost two centuries later...".
