Bahrainis continue sit-in protest outside Sheikh Qassim’s home in Diraz

TEHRAN (FNA)- Hundreds of peaceful protesters continued their presence in front of Bahrain senior cleric, Sheikh Isa Qassim’s home in Diraz, to condemn Manama regime’s ongoing wave of opposition crackdown in the country.

Nearly a month has passed since the Bahraini authorities revoked the citizenship of the country’s Shia spiritual leader Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim on June 20, 2016, ratified by the King, however the Bahraini people’s sit-in protest in front of the cleric’s house continues, Bahrain Mirror reported.

The site, witnessed immediate, spontaneous and angry protests right after Al Khalifa edict, have not been empty since then.

Protestors expressed their outrage by wearing shrouds and announcing their will to die if the authorities would take any decision to forcibly deport or exile Sheikh Qassim.

The nearby houses opened their doors to host everyone who decides to proceed in the open strike. Bahrainis considered this to be the most dangerous decision taken by the authorities against the Shia since 2011.

Since that day and despite of the high temperatures, the scorching sun and the struggle of Ramadan fasting (the decision was issued on 14 Ramadan), the protest remained strong and crowded and is still ongoing.
