Al-Shamlawi's statement was made via his Twitter account as he commented on a tweet by opposition figure Yusuf al-Khaja, who said, "who- Sheikh Ali Salman-declares that he was offered arms to achieve demands and (refused) the offer spends 4 years in prison, yet he who was trained to overthrow the regime is free and heads a newspaper," referring to the editor of Al-Watan newspaper owned by the Royal Court, Yousef Al-Bankhilil, who was trained at the Qatar's Academy of Change, which Bahrain recently accused of planning to overthrow the regime.
