RNA – Ayatollah Isa Qasim, the leader of Bahrain’s oppressed Shi’ah Muslim majority, issued a message of condolences to the families of martyrs Muhammad al-Miqdad, Ahmad al-Malali and Ali al-Arab.
It’s reported that Bahrain executed three Shi’ah citizens on terror charges, despite appeals for clemency from international human rights groups.
Ali al-Arab, 25, and Ahmad al-Malali, 24, were put to death by firing squad.
The Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy said al-Miqdad died on July 28th at a hospital after being found unconscious on the street shortly after protests against the executions on the day before.
The statement by Bahrain’s Shi’ah leader is as follows:
The people call on the regimes to reform the political situation, to end any acts of oppression and tyranny and to turn to Islamic political thought and the teachings of the Islamic religion.
The divine prophets and messengers all acted in accordance with divine instructions and established sovereignty over the people according to the divine teachings and all of the rulers and political systems who profess Islam must act in the same manner. Otherwise, they would claim that their position is higher than the divine prophets but no rational person would accept this claim.
Unfortunately, many regimes have considered the right to absolute sovereignty over the people themselves. Yet, no king, president nor ruler can claim independence from divine will and power.
The source of the power of such a regime is through the sword, force, oppression, and savagery but it’s obligatory for all Muslims to rise up against oppression and change the current situation in order to rid the Muslim nations of oppression. Just as the Ummah has called for the martyrs’ help and has rose up in resistance against the oppressive killers, it has emphasized the continuation of the path of jihad and loyalty to the blood of the martyrs.
God-willing, the three martyrs who went to heaven recently, like the other martyrs, achieved divine bliss and God Almighty is the best witness to the oppression of the oppressors. However it’s surprising that the Bahraini regime is proud that it has silenced the voice of revolution and the freedom-seekers of the nation but it continues to carry out widespread arrests, unfair trials and the deprivation of the people of citizenship, which are only accepted by the vain and only the ignorant are proud of such actions.
The blood of the martyrs is eternal, reflects the path of humanity, teaches the next generations about sacrifice and comes to the aid of the people in reforming the affairs of this world and the hereafter.
I extend my condolences to the families of the martyrs and offer truthful condolences to the faithful and martyr-nurturing people of Bahrain.
