Message No.7: To Sunni Bahrainis, with love

Discrimination created by the father between his sons and daughters within the same family causes a rift among brothers. This is exactly what the power does when there is no social equality among its citizens in Bahrain where the divide between nationals is pronounced. The main point in Bahrain is not sectarian as some like to make it appear. The division is not along sectarian lines between Sunnis and Shiites. The Bahraini society is based on harmony and reconciliation with all sects. It is rather a question of persecuted people who seek justice, dignity and reforms against those who want the nation to be as “a special estate”, they want the Bahrainis to be subjects, not citizens. The picture in Bahrain is clear-cut and the accumulation of events which led to the uprising is known. It is fortunate that The Crown Prince of Bahrain Salman bin Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa is aware that the frustrations and government’s failures to meet the Bahrainis “ambitions have lead to these anti-government protests.’’ He told Al
Arabiya television and his statement was not safe from the scissors of censorship in the one-sided Bahrain TV!!

We want stability to be sought, and bloodshed to be prevented .We do not want new families for grief. Unity is required among Bahrainis for the welfare of the State and people and the regime’s immediate steps are needed in a bid to defuse unbridled anger.
Long live Bahrain!  , may Allah protect Sunni and Shiite Bahrainis from plights, disagreement and division among people.

At the crack of dawn on the 20th day of February, 2011
