We have these days heard about voices and tribunes fueling hatred and abusing freedom of expression. The matter has worsened to include disrespecting the Bahrain Defence Force and there is no doubt that it is our duty to ensure that this is not repeated.Our armed forces are the protectors of the nation’s achievements and everybody must know that whoever disrespects the forces or its leaders is in fact abusing us.
We cannot tolerate any irreverence of our beliefs, social values and armed forces in the name of freedom of expression.All competent executive agencies have to take the necessary measures to address these violations in accordance with the law.We are also confident that the people of Bahrain are able to address all issues thanks to their patriotism and to the spirit of the reforms within a positive, purely patriotic and constructive dialogue that seeks Bahraini solutions, and not foreign ones.
We do hope that everybody will think of Bahrain’s interests and will keep the domestic issues away from international conflicts in which we play no part.It is our duty to prepare ourselves and our beloved Bahrain for the forthcoming phase of Arab Gulf union.It is the way forward towards further well-being and prosperity.
In conclusion, we reiterate our pride and appreciation of your efforts to protect your nation and homeland.
