Ban on Bahraini Party Censured

Iran censured the government in Bahrain for suspending the activities of the Arab country’s main Shia opposition group, saying such moves will further complicate the political strife  in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari said on Thursday Manama is “confronting peaceful public protests by intensifying security measures, jailing moderate [political] leaders and human rights activists and shutting down the offices of peaceful political and social associations,” according to Press TV.
Such an approach by the Bahraini government will “complicate the domestic crisis in the country,” Jaberi Ansari added.
He expressed hope that the Bahraini government would pave the way for restoration of peace and stability to the island country by taking confidence-building measures and initiating a meaningful dialogue between the government and opposition.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Bahrain Justice Ministry announced that the kingdom had suspended all activities of al-Wefaq National Islamic Society and frozen its assets. The Bahraini ministry accused the Arab country’s main opposition group of spreading tension and extremism.
Manama also dissolved two other opposition groups, namely al-Tawiya and al-Risala Islamic associations.
