#AceWorldNews – BAHRAIN – October 30 – A Bahrain court decided to keep prominent human rights activist Nabeel Rajab in prison on Wednesday, as his comments on Twitter were viewed as insulting to public institutions, AFP reported.
One of the tweets said: “Many #Bahrain men who joined #terrorism & #ISIS came from security institutions and those institutions were the first ideological incubator.
” Rajab is the head of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights and was one of the leaders of the 2011 protest movement which demanded reforms in the country.
Bahrain is ruled by a Sunni monarchy, while over 75 percent of the population is Shia.
