The democracy protest in Bahrain has nothing to do with Iran. It was inspired by events in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya.

Bahrain is claimed by Iran, and what is happening there is an Iranian attempt to push the US Navy out of the region. It is true that the majority of people are Shia Arabs whereas the rulers are Sunni Arabs. But Iran is using this to get the UN naval base out of the region.
