0

In Bahrain, a total of 45 religious sites, including historic mosques and shrines, have been demolished totally, damaged partially, or vandalised during the government’s GCC-assisted military crackdown, aimed at quelling an anti-government protest movement which emerged on February 14, 2011. The demolition of religious sites took place during a period of ‘national security’ announced by the Bahraini government on March 14, 2011, when troops of the Gulf Cooperation Council Peninsula Shield entered the country; the crackdown lasted until June 1, 2011.
