Bahrain Premier highlights key role of TV
Manama, April 13, 2011
Bahrain's Premier has warned against certain satellite channels playing a detrimental role, falsifying truth and inciting mutiny.
'These channels are promoting behaviours and values alien to our societies,' he said.
His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa sounded the alarm as he received Kuwaiti journalist Talal Al Said and Scoop satellite TV channel chairperson Fajr Al Said.
He stressed the destructive impact of such channels in fuelling animosities and undermining social fabric.
He deplored those who opted to sit on the fence and let their countries down at a critical time when it needed them most.
'Those people harmed themselves before harming their nation,' he said, adding that the incidents which gripped Bahrain, laid a lot of people bare and exposed them to public opinion.
He paid tribute to media agencies which sided with right and stood by Bahrain.
'Thank you to the GCC media, particularly Kuwaiti, for projecting a remarkable image which stems from a spirit of common destiny,' he said.
He cited particularly Scoop TV channel, hailing Kuwait's media strides.
HRH the Premier said that Bahrain will never forget the support of Kuwait, led by Amir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah.
He described Bahrain and Kuwait as one country, hailing strong historic relations.
He deplored the fact that Bahrainis engaged in self-destructive acts during the days of unrest.
'What hurt our feelings most was that Bahrainis plotted to destroy their own country,' he said.
'We loved Bahrain people and spared no effort to serve them and achieve their welfare,' he said, lauding loyal citizens for their allegiance.-TradeArabia News Service
