TEHRAN (IQNA) – The secretary general of Iraq’s al-Nujaba Islamic resistance movement slammed Bahraini rulers for executing two Shia activists.


In a statement, Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi described the rulers of Bahrain as Taghut (tyrannical rulers) and said they have lost their Bahraini identity.

He described the two who have been executed as courageous youths and followers of Imam Hussein (AS).

Sheikh Kaabi also condemned the world silence in the face of the Manama regime’s killing of activists, saying the so-called human rights organizations even seem to have forgotten there is a country named Bahrain.

He further expressed sympathy with the families of the martyrs and vowed to continue the path of the martyrs.  

The Bahraini regime carried out the executions on Friday, in defiance of widespread calls to commute the verdicts, which had been handed down in a mass trial.

The case of the two activists executed — Ahmad al-Malali, 24, and Ali Hakim al-Arab, 25 — caught special international attention. The duo had been handed down the conviction along with another 56 men last year on “terrorism crimes.”

Since February 2011, Bahraini people have been regularly holding peaceful protest rallies, demanding that the Al Khalifah family relinquish power and that a just and representative system be established.

They have also been complaining about widespread discrimination against the country’s Shia majority.

The Manama regime has responded to the demonstrations with an iron fist. The authorities have detained rights campaigners, broken up major opposition political parties, revoked the nationality of many pro-democracy activists, and deported those left stateless.

Hundreds have also been killed during the regime crackdown.
