Hello my friends! I missed you!

I can’t thank you enough for your generous support over the last couple of days. They have been very difficult for my family and friends. I’m glad to say that I have been handled well enough while incarcerated. The authorities launched an investigation and I answered and defended myself as best I could. I’m happy to relate that they didn’t find anything indictable so they released me. I can’t thank them enough for this.

I must say that the allegations which appeared on Facebook and propagated unnecessarily and unfairly in itechbahrain complicated the situation appreciably. Although I did try to get itechbahrain and the Facebook pages to see their error, they insisted on spreading their malicious and completely unsubstantiated rumours, they were adamant in their beliefs. These might very well have resulted in the destruction of not just my own personal life, but those of my dependents, my family members, my staff and business. I’m glad their efforts have miserably failed.

I do hope; however, that they see the error of their ways now. I don’t want anything from these people, what I do want is what’s good for my country. As such, I offer them peace and ask them to please think before they spread dangerous information. The least they can do, is give everyone the benefit of the doubt, and double check their information before they publish it, especially when that information can have such a devastating effect as this has had.

What this country needs right now is the start of a much needed healing process. I promise you that this process of healing will continue to be my primary concern and I shall continue to contribute to it in any way that I can.

I also hope that as now the premise for my detention has been determined to be false; the responsible authorities will choose to dismiss any investigations, if any, in relation to anyone wrongfully mentioned in those despicable pictures.

Thank you all for your tremendous support. I am truly humbled by the outpouring of love and support I have seen. I’m still shell-shocked. My family is just about bruised and battered, but our own healing has already started very much aided but your love.

Stay safe my friends. We have a lot of work to do. Bahrain deserves all of our concerted efforts to achieve a better future for all.
