Brit royal wedding invitation to Bahrain's crown Prince draws criticism

London , Sun, 24 Apr 2011 ANI

London, Apr 24 (ANI): Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding invitation to crown Prince of Bahrain has drawn criticism in light of his government's brutal treatment of pro-democracy protesters.


During Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa's rule at least 30 people have died in Bahrain, also many activists and lawyers have been imprisoned since protests started in mid-February,


Human rights campaigners are already petitioning the Foreign Secretary, William Hague, to revoke the invitation, saying the prince should not be allowed to attend given the bloodshed in his country, The Guardian reports.


Mehdi Hasan, senior editor at the New Statesman, tweeted: "Crown Prince of Bahrain to attend Royal Wedding. Royals and their apologists should be ashamed."


The crown prince has been a guest of the royal family before in December 2004, when Prince Charles invited him to St James's Palace to discuss on relations between their two countries. (ANI)
