Bahrain Mirror: Local Bahraini Al-Ayyam newspaper reported that dozens of muezzins and mosque imams demanded to be returned to their jobs, from which they were dismissed more than three years ago.

Around 120 muezzins and imams, who were dismissed from their jobs, are demanding that they be returned to their jobs unconditionally over three and a half years after their arbitrary dismissals.

The representative of the cadre of dismissed imams and muezzins, Sheikh Mohammed Saeed Al-Aradi, said that during the years from 2006 to 2014 salaries were paid to the cadre on the basis of their service, and all the presidents of the Jaafari Endowments who headed the directorate treated them as employees, until the current president, who claimed that it is impermissible in Islamic jurisprudence to be paid for service during congregational prayers.
