Is Bahrain outlawing Shia Islam?

SHAFAQNA –  For the third consecutive week, Bahraini worshippers at Imam Al-Sadiq mosque, where largest Shia Friday prayer is held, had to perform their prayers alone (without being led by the Imam) after the authorities prevented the Imam of the mosque and large number of worshippers from entering Diraz.

The statement which was read in the mosque said “after preventing the substitute Imam of Shia’s largest Friday prayer in Imam Al-Sadiq mosque and worshippers from reaching Diraz to perform the prayers, we announce the stopping of the Friday prayers for the third consecutive week. To Allah we shall complain.”

Protesters held anti-regime slogans demanding putting an end to Al Khalifa monopoly over power and discrimination against Shia.
