Bahraini government responsible for providing Ayatollah Isa Qassim with all care: Senior cleric

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Bahrain’s leading Shiite cleric, Sayyed Mohammad Al-Ghoraifi, asserted that it was Manama’s “responsibility” to provide Ayatollah Isa Qassim with the treatment he needs.

Speaking on the eve of Friday prayers, Sayyed Al-Ghoraifi described the Ayatollah as a “major guarantor of the country’s security and stability”.

Ayatollah Qassim’s health deteriorated on Sunday, and a medical examiner later concluded that he needed to be transferred to hospital.

“It is our responsibility, government and people, to provide His Eminence with all the care,” Sayyed Al-Ghoraifi said.

Ayatollah Qassim – Bahrain’s highest religious authority – was arbitrarily stripped of his nationality in June 2016. Since then, he has lived under virtual ‘siege’ in Bahrain’s northwestern village of Diraz.
