Navideshahed: Tehran's Imam of Friday Congregation, Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, deplored the Al-Khalifa regime for its brutal suppression of peaceful protests in Bahrain, and slammed Manama's foreign allies for helping the regime with its crimes against the people.

Addressing a large congregation of Tehrani worshipers on Tehran University Campus here on Friday, Ayatollah Jannati condemned the Bahraini regime and its foreign allies for "opening war on Bahraini people and Ulemma (religious scholars)".

He further condemned the Al-Khalifa and its foreign supporters for arresting, torturing and pressuring the medical staff of the country's hospitals for curing wounded protesters.

Horrifying evidence has recently shed light on the brutality of the Bahraini regime's crackdown on the medical staff.

Harrowing testimony of torture, intimidation and humiliation from a doctor arrested in the crackdown on medical staff in Bahrain has revealed the lengths to which the regime's security forces are prepared to go to quash pro-democracy protests.

Interviews obtained by The Independent from inside Bahrain tell of ransacked hospitals and of terrified medical staff beaten, interrogated and forced into signing false confessions. Many have been detained, their fate unknown.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's over-40-year rule.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar - were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13 to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

Yet, protests and rallies continued throughout the country in defiance of the martial law put in place by Manama.

People say they will continue protests until the regime collapses.
