Secretary General of Al-Wefaq powerful Bahraini opposition group, Sheikh Ali Salman, greeted on Friday “the great people of Bahrain” on the fourth anniversary of the revolution.
“I feel tranquility and peace of mind flooding my heart thanks to Allah Almighty .. You made me shy by your noble stance on my arrest. You made more than what is expected from you, and I am grateful to you for your positions,” Sheikh Salman told the Bahraini people in a message he sent from Al-Khalifa prison, and posted on his Twitter account.
“Do not forget the rest of the detainees.. Do not forget our main demand of electing our government in a democratic and sound way, as well as electing the parliament that legislates decrees without the tutelage of a particular council, in periodic elections based on equality,” his eminence said.
“Equality-based election is the one we demand,” he stressed.
Sheikh Salman went on to urge the Bahrainis to continue their movement and to stick to their peacefulness.
“Protect yourselves and their private and public properties,” he said.
In the meantime, activists posted several footages showing the crackdown of Bahraini monarchy against peaceful protests in the kingdom.
In the scenes, security forces appear repeatedly shooting live bullets at protestors from small distances.
Peaceful revolution erupted in Bahrain on February 2011, however, the monarchy of Hamad bin Issa Al-Khalifa launched a brutal crackdown on the people, who are demanding democracy and social reform.
