Dear Mohamed Bin Abdulla Al-Rumaihi


At Shia Rights Watch (SRW), we, researchers, activists, and human rights defenders, who are following human rights violations around the world, believe it is essential for the Qatari government to take action regarding the Shia rights violations that are being advocated in this country.

This letter hopes to resolve issues involving the security and well-being of millions of Shia Muslims, as well as the stability of all nations.

We wish to draw your attention to the hateful messages that are being spread by clerics such as Al-Qaradawi in Qatar.

Al-Qaradawi has repeatedly called Shia Muslims “worse infidels than Christians or Jews.” In his lecture last week he called Sunnis to “Jihad” in Syria. It is important to note that such lectures only add to the unrest in the area, spread violence and also inflame, if not create, sectarian conflicts.

Al-Qaradawi is a resident of Qatar and he is using his freedom in this country to increase sectarian violence in different parts of the Middle East. He is responsible for many war crimes and sectarian conflicts and the Qatari government is supporting him and his mission by not stopping him.

SRW urges the Qatari government to stop Al-Qaradawi and hold him responsible for his hateful messages toward Shia Muslims.

There is no doubt that this government has the capability and desire to prevent and stop human rights violations in the area.

We cannot stress enough how stopping hate lectures can save lives of thousands of suppressed people in Syria and other countries.
