No freedom of religion for Bahrain Shia community


SHAFAQNA – Security authorities in Bahrain prevented the country’s Shiite majority from holding their largest Friday prayers for the 61th consecutive week, by continuing to impose a siege on the town of Diraz that is resided by over 20 thousand citizens.

Worshippers had to perform Friday prayers separately (without being led by an Imam) in the Imam Al-Sadiq mosque, where the largest Friday prayers for the Shia majority were used to be held.

Since June 2016, security authorities have imposed security siege on Diraz, after revoking the citizenship of the spiritual leader of Shia majority Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim.
