SHAFAQNA – Seminaries and top religious figures have issued statements denouncing detention of prominent Bahraini Shia cleric stressing that soon people will strip Al Khalifa regime of its Bahraini nationality.

“Undoubtedly the hands of Al Saud are part of this plot when they are playing a particular role in supporting the egotistic Al Kalifa regime” said the message.
Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom has slammed the move to desecrate the religious figures and called world Muslims, elites to voice their anger against the oppression.
Senior Iranian jurisprudent, Ayatollah Hussein Noori Hamedani has also rejected the detention of Bahraini Shia leader urging international communities to maintain the popular demands in Bahrain.
The cleric in his message has expressed regret over the silence of so-called human rights supporters and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
