The report from the Bahraini News Agency claiming that Ennhada stated the February and March 2011 anti-government protests in Bahrain were “riotous acts of sabotage by sectarian elements who had nothing to do with the Arab Spring” is untrue, according to multiple officials in Ennahda.
“Yesterday there was a meeting of the Executive Committee of Ennahda and we never discussed the situation in Bahrain,” said Ajmi Lourimi a member of the Executive Office of Ennahda. He added that Ennahda has never referred to the events that took place in Bahrain in February and March as “riots” or “acts of sabotage” and Ennahda has never referred to the events in Bahrain as the result of “sectarian differences.”
According to Nejib Ghorbi the Press Secretary of Ennahda, no meeting with a delegation from the Bahraini governmental organization ”Mabadi Human Rights Society” took place yesterday.
