Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's senior clerics expressed on Tuesday (August 25, 2015) their refusal of statements issued by the Minister of Interior Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa regarding his ministry's intention to oblige Imams of mosques and Friday preachers to get approval, stressing that the Imams of mosques will not respond to these government decisions.

"In light of the latest statement of the Minister of Interior regarding religious discourse, the clerics find themselves before two duties; the official duty to get approval in order to deliver religious sermons and the divine duty that contradicts with this kind of duty. Clerics, from the religious aspect, can only give priority to the divine duty."
