BBC said that a "#Massacre_of_Scholarships was spread in Bahrain through which the tweeters objected to mechanism and standards followed by the ministry of education in distributing the scholarships."

It added that tweeters accused those responsible of the distribution of scholarships of depriving some students of scholarships on a sectarian basis, demanding equality among students and not taking their nationality, sect or language into consideration."

"However, others criticized these accusations saying that there was fair distribution and that the #Massacre_of_Scholarships appeared in about 21 thousands tweets," BBC further stated.
