Speaker Urges Muslim Action to Stop Violence against Bahraini People

In separate messages to the parliament speakers of the Muslim countries, Larijani asked for rapid action to stop the Manama regime from violating the human rights and suppressing peaceful protestors in the country.

He further warned that foreign military intervention in Bahrain has deteriorated the situation and intensified the crackdown on the defenseless people.

"The actions (taken by the foreign forces) run counter to Islamic and moral principles and international and civil rights conventions," Larijani stressed.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's over-40-year rule.

Violence against defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar - were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13 to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

Yet, protests and rallies continued throughout the country in defiance of the martial law put in place by Manama since last month.

On Saturday Bahrainis repeated their demand for the ouster of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and condemned Riyadh's involvement in the suppression of the revolution.

People have announced that they will continue protests until the regime collapses.

Demonstrators have been demanding constitutional reforms as well as an end to the 230-year-old monarchy, with hundreds camping out peacefully in the capital's Pearl Square since February 14th.

Bahraini and Saudi security forces have been brutally suppressing anti-government protestors. So far, tens of people have been killed, hundreds have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.
