Al Wefaq: refusing to discus discrimination
means it is continuing

In commemoration of the of World Day for Human Rights, Al Wefaq Society issued a statement in which it stated that the continuing discrimination policy, defending it and the refusal to admit it as a problem is one of the main reasons for the decline of human rights in the country. It added that ‘denying the fact that discrimination exists in Bahrain will not help eliminate it, but rather confirms it and provides evidence for it. The reality confirms that abhorrent discrimination exists in the country’. Al Wefaq praised the UN Secretary General’s speech on the occasion, and described it as ‘very realistic because the talking about discrimination represents a starting point for dealing with one of the worst kinds of human rights violations’.
