SHAFAQNA Security forces of Al Khailfa have destroyed signs marking the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A) in Bahrain.

Local media said Saturday security forces removed black flags and banners put up in public places to commemorate the occasion overnight.

Hazrat Fatima (SA) is an enormously revered figure, especially for Shia Muslims who view her as the foremost role model for women.

Her martyrdom anniversary is marked every year in several countries, most importantly in Iran, Iraq, Bahrain, Lebanon and Pakistan.

Religious events held by Bahrain‘s majority Shia Muslims are a regular target of regime forces in the tiny archipelago in the Persian Gulf.

Several Shia mosques and religious gathering places have been razed to the ground since 2011 when a popular uprising broke out in the country.

Earlier this month, Bahrain’s top court upheld life sentences for prominent opposition figure Sheikh Ali Salman and two of his colleagues over spying charges, press tv reported.
