“This bitter report that your presented is concerning for us ,” Fars News Agency quoted Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli as saying in meeting with a number of Bahraini clerics who produced pictures documenting the desecration of mosques and the Holy Qur'an by Saudi and Bahraini forces.

Saudi mercenaries and troops were deployed in Bahrain on March 13 to help Bahraini security forces quash protests demanding the ouster of the ruling Al Khalifa family from the Persian Gulf island nation.

Shortly after the invasion, videos and pictures surfaced indicating the extent of brutality used in the crackdowns of anti-regime demonstrators. They also showed attacks on civilian homes and holy sites in a number of villages.

“Al Khalifa and Al Saud, [Libyan dictator Muammar] Gaddafi, Zionists, and Americans are neither Shia nor Sunni. One who sets fire to the Qur'an is not a Muslim, but a slave to the arrogant, Zionists and the US,” Ayatollah Amoli stated, ruling out allegations that the violence was fueled by sectarian differences.

“They are not even Wahhabis, because they at least believe in the Qur'an,” the cleric pointed out.

He further called for Islamic zeal among Muslims across the world apart from prayers, patience and perseverance and urged Muslim officials to voice their protest in meeting with Bahraini diplomats and officials.

“The infidelity of Al Khalifa and Al Saud is verified, for beside destroying mosques and mourning sites, they did not even stop at the Holy Qur'an and burned [copies] of this divine book,” Ayatollah Amoli underscored.

The influential Shia cleric described secularism a “unilateral ceasefire” and the curse of Muslim nations where the government prevents religious rule under the pretext of separation of politics and religion, but moves against religious communities and the followers of different faiths at whim.

“It is necessary for all Muslims in the world to support the oppressed people of Bahrain,” he said, condemning Riyadh for backing Al Khalifa by its invasion of Bahrain, and the US for intervening through the establishment of military bases in the country.

Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli further extended his sympathy with the families of those killed in crackdowns in Bahrain and prayed for the release of those jailed following their participation in protests.
