A protest was allegedly carried out by some South Asians over the Indian government’s decision to strip Jammu and Kashmir of its special status in Bahrain. The rally was conducted after Eid prayers in Bahrain illegally.

Tweeting about the action taken, Bahrain’s interior ministry said that the local police had initiated legal proceedings against the protestors. Bahrain also urged citizens to not use religious occasions for political purposes.

“Legal proceedings were taken against some Asians for gathering in a way that violated the law after Eid prayer. The case referred to the Public Prosecution. It urges citizens and residents to not politically exploit religious occasions,” said the tweet.

The action comes after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan called up the King of Bahrain Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa on Friday to apprise the latter of the situation in Kashmir.

On Monday, India revoked Article 370 to withdraw the special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the region into two Union Territories – Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

“The King of Bahrain said that the government of Bahrain was closely monitoring the developments in Kashmir with deep concern and hoped that all issues would be resolved through dialogue,” according to a statement issued by Imran Khan’s office.
