Darwish, “Sheikh Alnecati’s influence as well as political and religious weight in Bahrain is significant. To target such a pillar of the Shiite community signals al-Kahlifa’s clear sectarian campaign against the Shiite community and its leaders.
"The forcible deportation of Ayatollah Alnecati is politically motivated … it poses a threat to the fabric of society,” added Darwish.
Darwaish called on the international community to intervene against al-Khalifa regime and address the many grave violations the regime continued to perpetrate against its people on the basis of their religion and political affiliation.
Al-Khalifa has threatened great many members of the Shiite community with deportation and loss of nationality over their political activism and human rights campaigning.
