Dozens of Bahrainis have staged a sit-in to express solidarity with prominent Bahraini Shia cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim, who was recently stripped of his citizenship by the Al Khalifah regime.

On Saturday evening, the protesters converged outside the residence of Sheikh Qassim in the northwestern village of Diraz to voice their strong opposition to Manama’s decision on June 20 to revoke his nationality and said the senior cleric was their “red line.”

The move against Sheikh Qassim came less than a week after Bahrain’s Justice Ministry suspended main Shia opposition group al-Wefaq National Society

The regime also dissolved the Islamic Enlightenment Institution, founded by Sheikh Qassim, and al-Risala Islamic Association.
