The statement signed by Sheikh Isa Qassim, Sayed Abdullah Al-Ghuraifi, Sheikh Mohammad Saleh Al-Rabiee and Sheikh Abdulhussein Al-Sitri read "the ongoing summons and arrests of clerics, including Sayyed Majeed Al-Mashaal- one of the prominent clerics, have bad consequences on the country's stability and security."

We also urge to stop the summons and arrests and to deal with issues with the language of dialogue in order not to let things deviate toward further tension and aggravation."
