(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Sheikh Ali Salman, the Secretary-General of the Islamic National Accord Association, called on in Maam Al-Haaj Hassan in Alaaly area Thursday evening to avoid going out on Marches in the last ten days of Ramadan and Eid, stressing that it will not affect the demands, since it’s normal for people and society to respect religious events.
He pointed out that the people of Bahrain on February 14 were convinced they wanted change and to be recognized as citizens of this land, they didn’t do it for luxury or out of enthusiasm.
He noted that the people of Bahrain will be present in squares, adding that coming marches will be even bigger than ever.
He pointed that the people have the potential to change things through the sheer power of their combined will, saying what made the people’s will so special was this ability for change, which unlike many things in life was not limited in time and could not be bullied out. Since the people have freed themselves from the shackle of fear, Salman warned that nothing would ever stop the movement now.
He said that the decision to ban marches will not continue, stressing on the need to keep the movement peaceful, not as a show of weakness but proof that the collective consciousness of Bahrain was fair and true.
Sheikh Ali Salman, said that the use of peaceful methods meant that Bahrainis would achieve their goals with limited loss. He added that he did not believe on violence, nor did he condone it. He pointed to Syria, saying Bahrainis did not want to fall in such trap. He went on saying that Bahrain did not seek a “transition of power” like what was being brokered in Syria and was done in Tunisia but rather a collaboration and coordination with the current regime.
Sheikh Ali said that false stability is over, opposition and authorities should be aware that no one can create stability without solid bases; otherwise it will be fragile and break eventually. The only way is to go from dictatorship to democracy. He stressed that there were millions of evidences which showed that repression was not the way to go and only led to failure of a regime.
He said: “people will not back down, will not back down, will not back down, and will document every single crime they are making”, stressing that people will stop all those who spread violence and commit crimes.
He said he believed that rejection of mediation shows radical opinion, explaining that the regime is oppressing its people, and won’t stop saying citizens and opposition are loyal to Iran.
He said: "we have a good relationship with the U.S. British, French, Canadian, Japanese and others embassies, because they respect others and they are the ones asking for meetings. When we meet with them, we explain our points of view. Our demands aren’t secrets and we expose them to the whole world.
