Qom Seminary Teachers Association strongly condemned silence on Bahrain

 The Jame-e Modarresin-e Qom (the Qom Seminary Teachers Association) has strongly condemned the silence of senior Muslim clerics on the brutal crackdown on anti-government protesters in Bahrain.

In a Wednesday statement, the Iranian clerics urged influential Muslim scholars to help prevent the massacre of innocent people in Bahrain and to end their silence on the “bloody” events in the Persian Gulf island nation.

The statement read that the silence of each Muslim individual on the ongoing crimes in Bahrain is a blatant betrayal of the Holy Qur'an and the tradition of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

It also called on intellectuals and the elite of the Muslim world to remain vigilant and thwart plots of enemies of Islam.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of seminary students held rallies across Iran on Wednesday in protest at the Bahraini government's clampdown on the anti-government protesters.

Iranian seminary students censured US-Saudi interference in Bahrain's internal affairs and called for strengthening unity among Muslims.

They chanted slogans against the United States and Israel and expressed their support for innocent people in Muslim countries, particularly in Bahrain.

Addressing the rally held in the holy Iranian city of Qom against the repression of anti-government protests in Bahrain, senior Iranian cleric Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami said arrogant powers are moving against Islam.

He further added that all Muslims shoulder a religious duty to defend Islam.

More than 25 people have been martyred, hundreds arrested and thousands injured in the government-authorized violence in Bahrain since February 14, when the public started a popular revolution against the monarchy, which has been ruling the tiny island for more than 200 years.

In March, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait deployed their troops to Bahrain to reinforce a massive armed crackdown on the popular uprising.
