At the end of his advanced fiqh course held in the Aʿzam mosque in Qum, Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi condemned the atrocities and crimes committed by the Bahraini regime against the Bahraini people. He stated in this regard: “recently the Āl-Khalifa regime has decided to take harsher measures against the peaceful demonstrations and rallies of the Bahraini people, as well as against their religious leader, Shaykh Isa Qāsim”.
He then added: “Today, the students of the Islamic seminary school in Qum will gather up at 10 am in order to hold rallies in condemnation of the terrible crimes committed by the Bahraini regime against the people of Bahrain”.
His eminence also warned the Āl-Khalifa regime and noted: “You must learn a lesson from the fate of the Shah of Iran and that of Gadhafi. The day will come that you will be held accountable for the innocent bloods that you have spilled”.
