People in different parts of Bahrain have been holding rallies in recent days in solidarity with the oppressed Shia Muslims of Saudi Arabia.
According to the Manama Post, Buri, al-Malikiya, and al-Murkh are among the areas in Bahrain that have been the scene of demonstrations against the Al. Saud regime’s crimes against Shia Muslims in Saudi Arabia’s Qatif and al-Awamiyah.
The demonstrators have also voiced protest against continued detention of the leader of Bahraini Shias Sheikh Issa Qassem.
Since 2011, Saudi Arabia’s Shia-majority Eastern Province has been the scene of anti-regime demonstrations, with the protesters calling for freedom of speech, the release of political prisoners, and an end to economic and religious discrimination exercised by authorities.
The Riyadh regime has responded with a brutal crackdown on dissent.
