Amid a Saudi-backed brutal clampdown on Bahraini anti-government protesters, an Iranian lawmaker has proposed that the Islamic Republic should dispatch its military forces to the Persian Gulf state.

“I believe that the Iranian government should not be reluctant to prepare the country's military forces at a time that Saudi Arabia has dispatched its troops to Bahrain,” Khabar Online quoted Head of the Islamic Revolution Faction of the Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Ruhollah Hosseinian as saying on Sunday.

He added that the Iranian government should prevent Saudi Arabia from imposing a military occupation on another regional country.

The lawmaker emphasized that Iran's Foreign Ministry should have taken a firm international stance on the Saudi military invasion of Bahrain and the violent massacre of the Bahraini people.

“Iran's Foreign Ministry should have made greater efforts and should have filed international lawsuits against the Saudi government and asked for the assistance of the Organization of the Islamic Conference regarding the massacre of the Bahraini people,” Hosseinian said.

He noted that the Bahraini civilians are currently under enormous pressure but world powers are heedless of events in the Persian Gulf country “just because they are Shia Muslims.”

Since February 14, Manama has been conducting a brutal crackdown on protesters who want an end to the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty.

In March, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait deployed their troops to Bahrain to reinforce the armed clampdowns.

According to the state-funded BBC, the harsh crackdown has so far left over 30 people dead.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have condemned the Bahraini and Saudi regimes for the heavy-handed tactics against civilians in the Persian Gulf state.
