Bahrain’s Al Khalifa Regime Violates The Rights Of Peaceful Pro-Democracy Protesters
Last year in Bahrain was one of ceaseless suppression and persecution of human rights activists.

Donald Trump administration and the UK government, two of the most influential factors in Bahrain, have remained silent in the face of al-Khalifa atrocities against human rights activists, especially within the Shia majority.

Bahrain along with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other violators of human rights and freedoms are supported widely by the US and UK governments with huge arms sales.

Recently, president of the Bahrain Forum for Human Rights, Baqer Darwish reported that the Al Khalifa regime has violated human rights in 995 cases just in January, referring to arrest of six children in that time.

Last month, the security forces have carried out 138 late-night raids on civilian houses and have made 121 arbitrary arrests, including six children, Mr Darwish said.

According to the human right group, almost 200 Bahraini citizens were held in prison, while 18 cases of torture and abuse were also recorded, involving four women and eight children.

Mr Darwish added, 77 citizens have also been subjected to unfair trials resulting in a total of 679 years of prison sentence and $268,000 fines, according to U-News.

Seven years after the outbreak of the revolution against the ruling West-backed monarchy of Al Khalifa in Bahrain, the regime continues to press ahead with various ways to crack down on the protestors.

The protests against the Al Khalifah started in mid-February 2011, in the form of peaceful pro-democracy protests, but the monarchy has applied a relentless heavy-handed crackdown against protesters.

Last week, the Supreme Court of Bahrain finalized the rulings against the Shiite Cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim. The cleric, 76, was stripped of his citizenship in 2016 and has been under house arrest in his home village Daraz since then.

The cleric’s sermons in Daraz’s mosque, visiting peoples injured by regime’s anti-protest crackdown and meeting with the victims of the regime’s repression campaign, have raised concerns of the Al Khalifa monarchy.

Sheikh Isa Qassim, the spiritual leader of Al Wefaq, Bahrain’s biggest opposition society, is the key feature keeping alive the uprising of Bahrainis.

The representative Sheikh Abdullah Daqqaq said: “Manama has reached a dead end and it has been proven that Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Ahmed Qassim is right,” added: “despite an increase of Al Khalifa regime pressures and execution verdicts against Sheikh Isa Qassim supporters, Bahraini people still support the spiritual leader of their revolution.”
