Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior tweeted that legal proceedings were taken by police against “some Asians” (Kashmiris, Pakistanis, & Bahrainis) who protested India’s military siege of Kashmir after Eid prayer. The ministry “urges citizens & residents to not politically exploit religious occasions.”

This is the ministry that brutally repressed the Bahraini Arab Spring uprising with extreme violence, including with pellet guns & with Saudi tanks, with no respect for religious occasions, including attacking mourners at the funeral prayers of those killed by its soldiers & police. It continues to prosecute, torture, & kill those who resist oppression.
