Sheikh Issa Qasim Slams Bahrain’s Brutal Crackdown Against Protesters
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Ayatollah Issa Qasim said on Saturday that the Al Khalifa regime cannot stop the protests by increasing the attacks, killing people, and arresting them.
The cleric added that torturing the anti-regime protesters is an insult to the people of Bahrain.
The Ayatollah also blasted the international community for remaining silent over the brutalities of the kingdom.
People in Bahrain have been staging demonstrations since mid-February 2011. Since then, scores of people have been killed and thousands more injured and arrested by regime forces.
The anti-regime demonstrators hold King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa responsible for the deaths of the protesters during the popular uprising.
