TEHRAN (IQNA) – People in different parts of Bahrain have been holding rallies in recent days in solidarity with the oppressed Shia Muslims of Saudi Arabia.

 Bahrainis Hold Rallies in Solidarity with Saudi Shias


According to the Manama Post, Buri, al-Malikiya, and al-Murkh are among the areas in Bahrain that have been the scene of demonstrations against the Al Saud regime’s crimes against Shia Muslims in Saudi Arabia’s Qatif and al-Awamiyah.

The demonstrators have also voiced protest against continued detention of the leader of Bahraini Shias Sheikh Issa Qassem.

Since 2011, Saudi Arabia’s Shia-majority Eastern Province has been the scene of anti-regime demonstrations, with the protesters calling for freedom of speech, the release of political prisoners, and an end to economic and religious discrimination exercised by authorities.

The Riyadh regime has responded with a brutal crackdown on dissent.

Since May, Saudi regime forces have imposed a deadly crackdown on Awamiyah – the hometown of late prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, whose execution by the Al Saud regime drew firm international condemnation and sparked mass protests across the Middle East.

Saudi authorities call the clampdown a “security campaign” against gunmen there, and have launched almost daily attacks against the town, destroying residential areas, setting fire to buildings, and reportedly threatening the residents to either leave or face potentially deadly swoops.
