The Shura Council has stressed that the kingdom is cohesive and united, under the leadership of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, noting that the Bahraini people is highly aware and educated, and cannot be deceived by suspicious foreign media outlets that seek to sow sedition and undermine the nation’s security and stability.
The Shura Council affirmed that the Bahraini citizens are always dedicated in serving the kingdom’s security, stability and comprehensive development, under its wise and just leadership.
In a statement, the Shura Council expressed its strongly-worded condemnation and denunciation of the smear campaigns launched by some suspicious media channels, especially “Al-Jazeera”, against the kingdom’s reputation and status in the human rights fields.
The Shura Council emphasised that the Doha-based Al-Jazeera channel is taking advantage of the political and security challenges that the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are going through during the current period in order to achieve goals aimed at spreading evil and harm to the countries and peoples.
In this regard, the Council underlined the importance of countering such attempts by adherence to rationality and restraint, calling for avoiding tensions that would impede efforts aimed at achieving more unity, fraternity and joint cooperation.
The Shura Council denounced the false and hostile allegations targeting the Ministry of Interior, commending the landmark achievements of Bahrain’s security authorities, led by Interior Minister, General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, and their remarkable efforts to maintain security and stability across the nation.
The Council called on Bahrainis to continue their dedication in serving the nation-building and development march, and to pay no heed to everything that may sow discord and spark division among the members of the one society.
