Preserving Our Heritage
The book Premier’s Majlis, written by Al Ahlia University Founding President, Dr. Abdulla Al Hawaj, was launched during a ceremony at The Ritz- Carlton Bahrain Hotel and Spa. The launch was held under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, Prime Minister of Bahrain, who received the first copy of the book at the ceremony.
HRH delivered a speech about how majlises provide an opportunity to meet citizens and learn about their needs and aspirations. He underlined the importance of documentation to preserve national and social identity, and lauded the key role Majlises play as a platform to cement social cohesion and strengthen national unity as they are passed down from one generation to the next.
Guests at the ceremony were also shown a documentary film shedding light on the Premier’s weekly majlises as a platform to address national issues and exchange viewpoints.
