Immediate release of Sheikh Ali Salman the Secretary-General of Al-Wefaq Political Society in Bahrain.


Majlis e Ulama Shia Europe, who is the representative of Shia Muslims in UK & Europe, condemns the arrest of Sheikh Ali Salman the Secretary-General of Al-Wefaq Political Society, the largest opposition political party in Bahrain.

On 28 December 2014, Bahraini authorities arrested Shaikh Ali Salman. We strongly condemn his detention for his peaceful political activities in Bahrain. According to Sheikh Salman’s lawyers, he has been accused of a number of serious charges that carry hefty prison terms, including calling for the overthrow of the government.

Sheikh Ali Salman was arrested for only exercising his fundamental rights to freedom of expression. We demand that the Bahraini government should immediately release Sheikh Ali Salman & drop all charges against him.

We ask the whole Muslim community & Human Rights organisations all over the world to play a part in creating awareness and using official channels to register their protest.
 
In addition we ask the United Nations to act and play a strong role by actively engaging the government of Bahrain to ensure Sheikh Ali Salman is immediately released & all charges against Shaikh Ali Salman are dropped immediately.
