Experts Assembly Backs Arab Uprisings

In a Thursday statement, the Assembly lent its support to the “self-motivated and justice-seeking uprising” of the regional Muslim nations, especially that of the people of Bahrain, against their “tyrannical and puppet” regimes and slammed the “bloody crackdowns” on such movements.

In recent months, a wave of revolutions and anti-government uprisings has swept the Middle East and the Arab world, prompting the regional authoritarian regimes to resort to violent means to repress the movements.

Hundreds of people have been killed and thousands injured during the crackdowns on the unarmed civilian protesters in the Middle Eastern and North African countries.

The Assembly also urged international bodies to take serious action to prevent the “brutal” manners of the authoritarian regimes and the “illegitimate interference” of foreign forces in those countries.

“Today is the day of trial for those who call themselves liberals in the global arena,” said the Assembly in its latest statement.

The Iranian religious experts also pointed to the bloody crackdowns on Bahrain's anti-government protesters by the Manama regime and the Saudi-led forces, criticizing the regime in Riyadh over its “illegitimate interference” in the small Persian Gulf country.

The Assembly deplored that such brutal acts are being legitimized by some senior religious scholars, either through their silence on the atrocities or their efforts to relegate the movements to the level of tribal clashes.

Demonstrators in Bahrain have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old Al-Khalifa monarchy since February 14.

Bahraini security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protesters. So far, at least 26 people have been killed, almost 100 have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.

The violence against protesters escalated when Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates dispatched their armed forces to the tiny Persian Gulf country upon Manama's request for help in cracking down on peaceful protesters.
