Kuwait is cracking the whip against expatriates who broke the law of the land by protesting against the alleged insult heaped on the Prophet Mohammad by a BJP leader in a television debate in India.
The government has issued instructions to the police to arrest and bring in expats from Fahaheel area where protests were organized last Friday after congregational prayers in support of Prophet Muhammad.
According to Arabtimes.online portal, sources confirmed the expatriates will be deported from Kuwait as they violated the laws and regulation of the country.
Those involved in the demonstrations were mainly Pakistanis, Bangladeshi and Indians – including non Muslims. The law of Kuwait and all six Gulf countries United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrai strictly forbids demonstrations by expats.
Quoting authorities, the portal said the detectives are in the process of arresting those involved in protest demonstrations for ultimate deportation to their countries of origin.
Those deported will be banned from entering Kuwait again.
