SHAFAQNA Exclusive: Bahraini regime prevents prisoners from performing their religious duties

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society of Bahrain announced that Al-e-Khalifeh regime prevents prisoners from performing their religious duties. According to Bahrain Al-Wefaq website the prisoners complained that prison authorities prevented them to carry out their religious acts as well as stopping them from holding mourning ceremonies in the month of Muharram. The prisoners said they have been threatened by the prison management in order to stop them mourning for Imam Hussein (AS). The lawyers for the prisoners announced that the prisoners have been denied their rights by the management and many of them have been refused medical treatments. Yesterday Bahraini forces again attacked the mourners who gathered for Muharram ceremonies using tear gas.
