KUWAIT CITY, March 5: The crime that was committed recently in Khaitan reflects the size of the negative values which we have imparted on our children, to the extent that even jokes develop into verbal skirmishes and end in stabbing the other, reports Al-Anba daily.
In Khaitan a 14-year-old boy was stabbed to death by his friend with a knife just because of differences between them. The daily visited the father of the deceased son Abdulrahman, who works for the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs. The father said: “I do not want to do anything. I also do not know this friend who stabbed him and I have never seen him.” When asked if there was a problem between his family and neighbors or acquaintances, he said, he has been living in Khaitan with his family – wife and five children — since 2005, and “I have no problems with anyone. My neighbors know me well and I and all my family members are respected by all of them and you can ask them.” He said on the day, his son Abdulrahman was killed, “I was at home with my wife and other children and I was surprised when a friend of my son who was in an abnormal condition asked us to rush to save Abdulrahman, saying that he was stabbed and bleeding profusely.”
When he reached the spot, he said, he saw his son lying on the ground in a pool of blood. He said, securitymen reached the spot quickly but emergency medical personnel were delayed in coming for more than half an hour, during which Abdulrahman was still alive but soon he breathed his last. The reason for the incident was verbal skirmishes which ended in the murder.
According to the victim’s brother, who is two years older than the victim, he knows the suspect very recently and the murderer’s mother is Sri Lankan, but this is not the cause, but the suspect and the victim were involved in verbal spat because the suspect’s mother is Sri Lankan. But is this the justification to take someone’s life remains the main issue. Contrary to rumors that the victim was stabbed three times in the chest, report shows the victim was stabbed only once in the lungs and it proved fatal.
