Marking Ashura Saudi authorities seal largest husseiniyah in Al-Ahsa

By: Abdulali

QATIF, Saudi Arabia: Shia rights watch has strongly condemned closure of the largest Shia mosque in Al-Ahsa, one of the Shia cities in Saudi Arabia warning the government that continued discrimination might bring unrest to the country.

SRW said it is the Shia’s rights to practice their peaceful programs in the month of Moharam and it’s the job of the government to protect their citizens not to oppress them.

According to Rasid, Saudi security authorities ordered at the beginning of the month of Moharam the closure of the newly established Shia mosques Buhaligha, which opened earlier this year.

The authorities have not given a clear explanation for this action but they return the fear to the Shia citizens in Al- Ahsa, because of the discrimination toward them and not letting them practice their rights.

Al-Ahsa was under years of security watch which end up arresting hundreds of Shia citizens and long closure of dozens of Shia mosques, religious schools and family service centers.

Shia population is more than 10 percent of the Saudi Arabia.
