RNA – According to a report by Rasa News Agency, human rights activists on social network supported Hujjat al-Islam Abdul-Jalil al-Miqdad and his brothers, Yusuf, Ibrahim and Murtadha.
These human rights activists demanded the immediate release of this Bahraini Shi’ah cleric and political leader, who has been imprisoned since 2011.
In their most recent attempt to pressure Hujjat al-Islam Abdul-Jalil and Yusuf al-Miqdad, the Al Khalifah regime banned them from attending the funeral of their sister.
In a message to court of the Al Khalifah regime, the February 14 Youth Coalition argued against the arrest of Fawziyah MashaAllah and said, “The issuance of such sentences and the detention of women by the Al Khalifah regime has become a normal issue.”
The coalition said that the Al Khalifah regime must release this lady, who is elderly and sick, as soon as possible.
The Al Khalifah regime has sentenced Fawziyah MashaAllah to three years of imprisonment for anti-government political activities.
Hujjat al-Islam al-Miqdad is one of the leaders of the al-Wafa Movement. He was arrested on March 27, 2011 and tried before a military court. He is currently serving a thirty-year prison term for various cases, including a life sentence in which he is charged alongside thirteen other political leaders and human rights defenders for “conspiring to overthrow the regime.”
Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country in mid-February 2011.
They are demanding that the Al Khalifah dynasty relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established.
Manama has gone to great lengths to clamp down on any sign of dissent. On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to assist Bahrain in its crackdown.
