Iranians hold rallies to condemn Saudi crimes

RNA – During the demonstrations, held after Friday Prayers in many cities, including capital Tehran, the Iranian worshippers voiced their outrage at the Al Saud for its failure to handle the Hajj pilgrimage.

 

Demonstrators also chanted slogans against Bahrain’s Al Khalifah regime for revoking the citizenship of prominent Shi’a cleric Ayatollah Isa Qasim.

 

The tragic incident in last year’s Hajj pilgrimage in Mina, near Makkah, killed over 7,000 pilgrims, including 465 Iranians.

 

The rallies were organized following recent remarks by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, in condemnation of “murderous” Saudi regime over the deadly Mina crush.

 

In a message to the Hajj pilgrims posted on the Leader’s official website on Monday, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “Instead of apology and remorse and judicial prosecution of those who were directly at fault in that horrifying event, Saudi rulers, with utmost shamelessness and insolence, refused to allow the formation of an international Islamic fact-finding committee.”
