Abdullatif Al-Mahmood (born 1946 in Hidd) is a Bahraini politician and doctor. He is of Sunni Arab origins.

Activism[edit]

In 1992, he signed on the uprising petition[1] which had been demanding the return of Bahraini parliament deputy causing him to be detained for two weeks.[2] Following his release, he withdrew from arguing that the petition had taken other goals. Afterwards, he disappeared from the political scene and worked as a doctor at the University of Bahrain.

Return to Politics[edit]

During the Bahraini protests that began on 2011, Abdullatif Al-Mahmood appeared as president of the pro-government Gathering of National Unity, led the Fateh Mosque assembly, and coordinated the Sunnis demands. He also became a staunch anti-Shia loyalist and has completely abandoned his former anti-government stance.
