Bahrain Mirror: Al-Menbar National Islamic Society issued a statement on the 50th anniversary of Bahrain's independence, in which it stressed on the national demands, allowing freedoms, on top freedom of expression and organization, expansion of the alternative penalty law and settlement of the conditions of prisoners and political detainees.

It also called for "adding constitutional amendments that expand the powers of legislative authority, allow popular participation in national decision-making, and enable civil society institutions to play their role. This requires the drafting of a national project that preserves all parties' political positions by building bridges of dialogue between the opposition, represented by its various political formations and national figures, on the one hand, and between them and the state on the other hand."
