Bahrain Mirror: Hundreds of citizens continued their open-ended sit-in held outside the house of the spiritual leader of Shia majority Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, on the night of Thursday (February 16, 2017) despite the heavy rains the country is witnessing since 2 days.

Activists posted videos on social media outlets showing crowds of people holding slogans supporting Sheikh Qassim, whose nationality was revoked on June 20, 2016 by the authorities.

Since the authorities revoked Sheikh Qassim's citizenship, thousands of people have been gathering outside his house, demanding the authorities to restore his citizenship and stressing on protecting and defending him.
