Increase of Terrorist Operations in Bahrain Is Due to Some Religious Fatwas, Says Minister of State
04 : 33 PM - 05/11/2012
The Minister of State for Information Affairs and Government Spokesperson Sameera Ebrahim bin Rajab stated that the Kingdom of Bahrain witnessed this morning five terrorist explosions in the areas of Gudaibiya and Adliya in the Capital, Manama, by homemade bombs, killing two Asian residents and injuring another, currently in a serious condition.
The minister condemned those terrorist acts aiming to terrorize citizens and residents, and to destabilize the country, pointing out that these terrorist operations are due to religious fatwas issued by some religious figures who haven't ceased inciting violence against civilians and policemen.
Further, Mrs. Rajab confirmed that international law requires countries to protect the security of citizens and residents on its territory, and called for zero tolerance in the application of the law, to control the religious speech of religious figures, and hold accountable anyone involved with those terrorist acts directly or indirectly, noting that this is the core duty of the government bodies in all countries of the world.

The minister said it was unfortunate that those actions targeted residents in the Kingdom of Bahrain, who have helped, and are still helping to enhance the economic development in Bahrain for decades.

On a separate note, Mrs. Rajab invited the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, as well as all international organizations to condemn violence and terrorism in Bahrain, stressing that the dual positions of international organizations will contribute to increasing terrorist acts.
