Saudi Wahabi Forces Closed Largest Shia Mosque in Al-AhsaSaudi Wahabi security authorities ordered the closure of the newly established Shia mosques Buhaligha in Al-Ahsa city of Saudi Eastern Province, which was opened earlier this year.

The closures came in the beginning of the month of Moharram which Shia Muslims commemorate the martyrdom of imam Hussein the prophet’s
Mohammad (pbuh) grandson.

The authorities have not given a clear explanation for this action but they return the fear to the Shia citizens in Al- Ahsa, because of the discrimination toward them and not letting them practice their rights.

Al-Ahsa was under years of security watch which end up arresting hundreds of Shia citizens and long closure of dozens of Shia mosques, religious schools and family service centers.

Even thou that government gave the permission of opening some of the Shia mosques and centers , but the last crackdown showed that discrimination toward Shia in Saudi Arabia will not rest.

Not to forget that Shia population is more than 15 percent of the Saudi Arabia.

Shia rights watch condemn closure of the largest Shia mosque in Al-Ahsa, one of the Shia city in Saudi Arabia and ask the government to know that the continuing the discrimination might bring unrest to the country. It is the Shia’s rights to practice their peaceful programs in the month of Moharam and it’s the job of the government to protect their citizens not to oppressed them.
