Review of Book on Sectarian Discrimination in Bahrain

Monday 25 April 2016
Review of Book on Sectarian Discrimination in Bahrain

Alwaght- The international conference on Persecution of Shiites in Bahrain, published a book reveling human rights violations practiced against Bahraini Shiites.

The committee that is organized by Salam for Democracy and Human Rights and No Peace without Justice with participation of Parliamentary institutions and bodies, organizations, law experts and think tanks shed lights on the desperate plight of Bahraini Shiites compiling shocking figures and facts, according to Bahrain Mirror website.

According to the book, the total number of religious freedom violations committed in the country reached 578, as 38 mosques were demolished.

The book also reveals that the arbitrary dismissal of employees from the private and public sectors has reached 4539, all over politically-motivated reasons. It further discloses that Shiite representation in the judiciary authority is only 12%; while Shiite citizens constitute more than 60% of Bahraini population.

The book highlights that the costs of housing requests made  by the politically naturalized citizens exceeds 2 billion and 289 million BD; which is equal to 6 billion and 70 million US dollars. Meanwhile, there are more than 53,000 housing requests at a rate of 4,000 annually.

Shiites are also deprived of taking charge of their religious endowments directorates (waqf), their athletes are persecuted and Shiite students are also deprived of scholarships and educational rights. 33% of high-ranking students were deprived of scholarships, the book reads.

 

The book's Figures show that one third of the Northern Province (Shiite villages) is still without drainage systems, as Bahraini regime does not commit to building 37% of the demolished mosques.

Insulting the Shiite sect and inciting hatred against its adherents during Friday sermons, are also counted as Al Khalifa monarchy's crimes.

The book also sheds light on the deliberate negligence and sabotage of the heritage and historic Shiite sites.

The Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry also highlights the issues of inciting hatred, abuse of laws, discrimination against Shiite, use of sectarian language and insults against detainees and religious figures, noting that many cases of torture and ill-treatment took place for the purpose of sectarian discrimination.
