Bahrain’s Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society labeled Manama as the ‘most prominent regime in religious persecution’ as the opposition group marked 100 weeks since the introduction of a ban on Shiite Friday Payers in Diraz.

Some 30,000 residents in the northwestern Bahraini village have been subjected to an unprecedented lockdown by Manama’s security forces since the denaturalization of the country’s highest religious authority, Sheikh Isa Qassim, on June 20, 2016.

The punitive measures include banning the Friday Prayers Imam from entering the village as well as threats against numerous religious scholars.

Rights groups have described the measures as collective punishment against the entire village, whose residents began a peaceful sit-in around Sheikh Qassim’s home after he was rendered stateless.

On May 23, security forces launched a bloody attack on the sit-in, killing five protesters and placing Sheikh Qassim under house arrest.
