More About This Item
King Fahd decreed a general amnesty in 1993, allowing Shi'i dissidents who had fled to return to the country. In return, the Shi'is were required to abandon their political programme of reform. This marked a new era for the Shi'is in the Eastern Province. Ibrahim assesses the leaders' considerable efforts to formulate a new discourse, participating in activities throughout the country with the aim of bringing about political change in the kingdom.
Fouad Ibrahim is an editor of Saudi Affairs. He has written many articles about the Shi'i political and socio-religious rights in Saudi Arabia, and is the author of numerous books about Islam, Shi'i sm and Saudi Arabia. He lives in the UK.
