The Bahraini authorities continue to ban the Shiite citizens from performing the largest Friday prayer by preventing the Imam of the prayer and worshipers from entering Diraz to perform the prayer in the Imam Al-Sadiq mosque.
Activists said that the security forces have banned for the tenth consecutive week the Imam of Friday prayer and worshipers from entering Diraz, which made the worshipers perform their prayers separately (without being led by the Imam).
Diraz has been witnessing a protest since almost 3 months outside the house of spiritual leader Sheikh Isa Qassim, who was revoked of his citizenship in June. As a result, the authorities besieged the village and blocked most of its entrances
