Bahrain's Ashura crackdown continues: Another Shiite cleric interrogated

Bahraini Shiite cleric Sheikh Mohamed Saleh Al-Qashami was reportedly interrogated by the kingdom’s security forces for five hours before being allowed to return home.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Bahraini Shiite cleric Sheikh Mohamed Saleh Al-Qashami was reportedly interrogated by the kingdom’s security forces for five hours before being allowed to return home.

He was questioned at the Al-Hoora police station on Wednesday over a sermon he delivered during annual Ashura commemorations last month.

Dozens of Shiite religious figures were interrogated or detained as part of Manama’s Ashura crackdown this year.

Sheikh Al-Qashami was last detained in February 2017 along with two of his children and later tried as part of a mass ‘terrorism’ trial.

He walked free earlier this year, but his son and daughter were slapped with lengthy prison terms.
