Larijani Urges World Speakers to Stop Violence against Bahraini People

In his message, the speaker underlined the necessity for the Manama regime to heed the legitimate demands of the Bahraini people, and called for an immediate withdrawal of the occupying forces from the tiny Persian Gulf island.

"We express our deep concern about any kind of violent confrontation with people's demands, violation of human rights and deteriorating humanitarian conditions in Bahrain," Larijani said, "and we underline the necessity for the leaders of this country to respond to the public demands in a peaceful manner and for the withdrawal of the alien occupying forces from that country."

"We believe that these violent actions and disrespect for people's demands in Bahrain provide the ground for tension and insecurity in future," he said.

"Only democracy can establish durable security in the region," Larijani continued.

"Parliaments, as representatives of the people, are expected to act upon their human duty and show reaction to the massive violation of human rights and the critical human conditions dominating Bahrain and to support the demand of the Bahraini nation by taking practical measures at international bodies and adopting transparent stances to prevent any further continuation of the present inhumane trend," the Iranian parliament speaker reiterated.

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 the 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.

During the recent days, Bahrainis have repeated their demand for the ouster of King 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 14.

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.
