Hayef's at it again!!

Here's another wonderful idea; Forget the Economic Crisis, forget the rising deficit & unemployment & continuous disintegration of basic services. Mohammed Hayef finds it appropriate to ask for the opinion of the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs as to the interpretation of 'appropriate' dress code for women!

For those of you who don't know the implications of this apparently curious move,


1-Revert to Article 2 of the State and System of Government, as stipulated in the Kuwaiti Constitution.
2-Revert to Article 1 of the Kuwaiti Election laws as stipulated in the Kuwaiti Constitution.
3-Revert to Article 29, 30 and 35 of the Public Rights & Duties as stipulated in the Kuwaiti Constitution.
(The English version of the Entire Constitution of Kuwait can be found here.)
By themselves, these articles surmise a Constitutional Loophole; Who is to say what the Women's Dress code should be? OK, Islamic Sharia stipulates that a woman must wear the hijab, and in seeing how MP Hayef is pricking at this issue now, one can surmise that he is making an attempt to build a case for the complete implementation of the laws of Women's suffrage as outlined in the Constitution--very commendable, at face value.

But wait...here's a thought; Revert to Article 5 of the Public Rights & Duties as stipulated in the Kuwaiti Constitution (which regulate State Symbols), and then watch this clip;




And Again here;



So, it seems to me that MP Hayef finds it appropriate to NOT stand up for the National Anthem, in reference to a Fatwa by the Ministry of Awqaf & Islamic Affairs, while at the same time, using a Loophole in the Constitution to justify the negation of Women in Parliament.

Now, and in closing; MP Hayef, a sworn Kuwaiti MP, refuses to respect the state's emblems, as stipulated in the Constitution while evoking a few religious edicts-in other words, breaking his oath, while at the same times, he maneuvers to enforce his ideals and opinions onto the general public using the same constitution which he swore to uphold and protect. In their opinion, I suppose, they believe that they are bravely defending both the constitution and their religion by taking up these acts.

In contrast, just take a look at this clip, and then decide how bravery is outlined;

"Forget the Economic Crisis, forget the rising deficit & unemployment & continuous disintegration of basic services. Mohammed Hayef finds it appropriate to"

Aren't there 50 MPs in total?
So what if one of them focuses on something that he believes is an issue? Your argument that there are other matters at hand (that are more important according to you), does not mean that all the MPs should drop all other issues. Does it?

As for the anthem; I don't think it is a specific requirement in the constitution to stand up when it is played. We'd be more inclined to stand up every time Quran is recited if standing up means anything.

Hayef and his following of sheep will soon be slaughtered. Religion is for a person to believe, not society to enforce. Believing in what Hayef and his little clique has to say makes you the same ignorant servile scum they all are.

Although i an agaisnt hayef ( and i wrote about it ) i still believe islam should be enforced in kuwait because it is in the constitution. However by enforcing i mean they shouls not do it forcefully but to keep ONLY the bad things away from kuwait such as alcohol.

HAyef by closing shisha plaxes early did not stop that bad sitution he was referring too. There are many way that ppl can do the bad stuff ...try visiting some chalets and you will see.

I do not want ppl going around whipping ppl to pray, mixing with other genders and wearing what they see fit

Spikey who the hell are you to decide what bad or not for people? If I want alcohol I'll drink, drugs I'll take and its non of your business. It's no ones business, Islam won't stop those things, nothing before it did and nothing will... Genders mixing is natural, what people do, wear, see, talk about and believe is up to them and not to your ignorant thinking... you scum
