We, hereby, hold you the responsibility of this humanitarian crime resembled in a verdict issued by Bahrain’s courts, which dissolve Islamic Clerics Council ( the highest religious body for Muslim clerics who follow Ja’afari doctrine in Bahrain ), considering this act is a persecution for our humanitarian right to exercise our religious role, which is guaranteed by article 18, 19, and 27 in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which is ratified by the kingdom of Bahrain in 2006.

According to what is stipulated in the doctrines, covenants, and international decisions that protect our right to practice our rituals and organize our religious affairs, we urge you to act on this crime through addressing Bahraini authorities to desist the continuations of the restrictions on the religious freedoms and expression freedoms and to cancel the verdict which confiscates one of our fundamental rights.
