Parents urged to discipline their children
KUWAIT, Feb 28: The Ministry of Interior had earlier warned about spraying water and throwing water balloons, but unfortunately some parents allowed their children to create this undisciplined behavior which caused quarrels during the national day celebrations.
Major General Faraj Al Zoubi called upon parents to educate their children and warn them that this violating behavior reflects negatively on celebration resulting in fights. This type of behavior generally results in injury and damages eyesight, reports Al Rai. He stated that showing patriotism is not by spraying water or destroying public property and attacking others.
One of such negative behavior went too far where one woman insulted the national flag by tying it around an animal. The law clearly states that if anyone insults the national flag or the flag of a friendly country, either by destroying or degrading is punishable by three years imprisonment and a fine not exceeding KD 250 either one or both penalties.
Major General Faraj Al Zoubi called upon parents to bring awareness and warn their children about such behaviors which are alien to Kuwait society and are rejected by everyone as they are offensive to the people of Kuwait.
