    Religious Freedom, Sectarianism and the Bahrain Uprising

    Thursday 6th March, 6.30pm
    Khoei Foundation - The Stone Hall Chevening Road, London, NW6 6TN (nearest tube Brondesbury Park)

    With Sheikh Maytham Alsalman - Chair of the Bahrain Interfaith Centre

    For three years the Gulf island of Bahrain has been witnessing ongoing protests with a widespread demand for democratic change. With a majority Shi'ite population ruled by a minority Sunni royal family, sectarian tensions have added to an already complex situation. At the United Nations General Assembly in September 2013, President Obama highlighted Bahrain as a country with concerns of sectarian tensions. This was denied by figures in the Bahraini Government, but the demolition of 38 Shi'ite mosques, sacking of Shi'ite workers and students and now the closing of the country's main Shi'ite religious body, all suggest heightened attacks on religious freedom in response to calls for democracy. A US State Department report in 2013 was critical of the Bahraini Government's recent record on religious freedom.

    Sheikh Maytham Alsalman is the Chair of the Bahrain Interfaith Centre and Head of the Religious Freedom Unit at the Bahrain Human Rights Observatory. He has worked to promote religious tolerance and mutual understanding amongst the country's Shi'ite and Sunni communities, as well as with the other religions represented by Bahrain's numerous expatriate workers. Here he will present on the current state of religious freedom in Bahrain, his thoughts on accusations of sectarianism from both sides of the divide, as well as presenting his vision for reconciliation and a way for Bahrain to move forwards away from religious tension.

    With sectarianism a growing focus across the Middle-East, particularly in Bahrain, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, Sheikh Maytham will provide expert and eyewitness knowledge of the current situation.
