Religious leader flays attack on Shiite religious leader’s house in Bahrain

Pakistani religious leader on Saturday strongly condemned the attack by Bahraini forces on the house of Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Ahmed Qassim.

Talking to IRNA Allamah Amin Shaheedi Deputy Secretary General, Majlis Wehdat Muslemeen (MWM) said Sheikh Qassim is the leader of Bahraini people and the ruling Aal-e Khalifa regime has no right to vandalize his house.

“This is an inhuman act,” he noted.

Security forces reportedly broke the doors of Ayatollah Sheikh Qassim’s house in the northwestern village of Diraz and vandalized his property.

Born in 1937, Ayatollah Sheikh Qassim is often referred to as the spiritual leader of Bahrain’s main opposition bloc al-Wefaq.

Allamah Amin Shaheedi expressing his views said that the coward attack depicts the vengeance of tyrant dictator in Bahrain. He added that people of Bahrain are being punished for revolting against Aal-e Khalifa regime backed by Salafis.

He added that people in Bahrain have been peacefully demanding King Hamad bin Isa Aal-e Khalifaˈs ouster and constitutional reforms.

Majlis Wehdat Muslemeen leader said that Bahrain is also home to the US Navyˈs Fifth Fleet so they want Bahraini king to continue to rule the country irrespective of the revolt of the people. “Americans want to keep their interests intact in the region,” he noted.

He said that international organizations have become silent spectator to the Bahrain crises.

The MWM leader said that Sheikh Qassim has always talked about the rights of Bahraini people and has been raising a strong voice against the American interference in the Persian Gulf state.

He said that The OIC and the Arab league have failed to play any role to protect the rights of Muslims. “We cannot expect anything positive from OIC and Arab League,” said the religious leader.
