A famous epic song, originally Persian, spread quickly around the world, while curiously boycotted in Bahrain by authorities.
A famous epic song, originally Persian, spreads quickly and remarkably around the world, in different languages, and in various productions that reflect the culture of these awaiting societies. Bahrain, nevertheless, show what is unimaginable and what the human mind can barely bear. It is launching a fierce war on children by preventing the congregational event to be held in several regions, thus forbidding thousands of innocent Bahraini children from pledge allegiance to their religious beliefs, from expressing their longing for salvation and liberation from oppression. The song also refers to the need for their compassionate religious saviour who would save them from the horrors of this miserable world.
“Hello Commander” was originally written in the Persian language and sung in Iran, upon the recommendation of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. The leader called on children and youths to address the awaited Imam Mahdi, who is believed to be currently living in occultation, and call for his advent. It has sparked an unprecedented social phenomenon across the world, including in Bahrain.
Why Boycotted in Bahrain?
One might ask: Why is the government afraid of such an anthem? Why are you afraid of those indigenous innocent children? Why does it push such a double policy – persecution against Shiites and openness to minorities such as Jewish, Hindu, or others – is this not strange?
However, it is the government of Bahrain, from which no child or elderly, neither woman nor man is safe from its oppression! The government of the security doctrine and the tribal mind with power over all the joints of the state, the government of sectarian oppression that refuses to coexist with a basic component – whose only culture is peace – and on the other hand, it coexists with the Zionists.
So, all public relations companies and media campaigns have failed and will obviously fail to promote the regime as the protector of freedoms and an arbitrary measure that coincided with obstructing the travel of pilgrims to the holy shrines in Iraq and Iran. Besides, it has committed the infringement of the manifestations of preparation for the Ashura season by arbitrarily removing Husseini banners.
Besides, a leaked document dating back to 2019 -issued by the Capital Police Directorate of the Bahraini Ministry of Interior- reveals that the regime trained members of the security services to seriously monitor and prosecute everything linked to the culture and ideology of Shiite Islam. It is reminiscent of what happened in Europe in the Middle Ages, the apartheid Zionist practices against the Palestinians, and the takfiri brutal practices of ISIS in Iraq and Syria during the last decade.
It is not surprising though, as the security campaign against the religious scholars and preachers of the Husseini pulpit has reached its climax during the past years.
Manama insists on eradicating the Bahrainis’ faith identity and religious practices, which provide evidence that the hate-making in the Bahraini society is a massive systematic project behind which royal decisions stand. It can undoubtedly be linked to the path of normalization and the hostile stance of anti-political Islam, which apparently resists arrogance and imperial domination, as well as linking it to the hostility against Iran.
Definitely, Manama is seriously seeking to benefit from the Israeli intelligence expertise to suppress Bahrain’s Shiites, even their children, and their sincere feelings towards the absent savior who will rejoice in their hearts and put an end to those who have wronged them and their parents and stripped them of their fundamental rights.
The Bahraini regime hates advent agenda as it is opposed to their practices and the motivator for these loyal lovers to confront and resist oppression.
As we said earlier, this attack on the Mahdist faith is not new. For years, the regime has harnessed all means to infringe upon it, despite the claim of the constitution of this same regime that it respects freedom of belief!
Now, the regime has found in the “Peace O Mahdi” anthem its opportunity; for this reason, it has instructed some scribes to demonize the anthem and link it to Iran, in order to facilitate the work of the security services, which means more persecution of the Shiites in Bahrain.
