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.
