“Any malicious idiot can make things look bigger, more complex and more violent, but we need a touch of genius and a lot of courage to walk in the opposite direction … !” (Bernard Shaw)

As anticipated by most observers, the majority of the members of the National Assembly, with the exception of only nine, voted to reject the amendment proposed by the enlightened powers to Article 16 of the Election C o m m i s s i o n Law. Instead, they approved a worse version of the government’s amendment, which i n d i r e c t l y prohibits non Muslim citizens and at least partially veiled Muslim citizens from running in future National Assembly elections. Passing this flawed law in the second deliberation marks a concerning development, signaling that the state is entering a dark tunnel led by obscurantist and religious forces. It raises suspicions about potential unannounced agreements between certain deputies and specific factions within the government. Undoubtedly, this law will not remain unchanged forever, and there is hope for positive changes in the future.

However, its adoption has already dampened enthusiasm, hindered progress, and slowed down the nation’s development. This law represents a significant turning point in Kuwait’s political history. It is troubling that the recent parliament election failed to elect even one liberal deputy for the first time since the beginning of parliamentary life. Particular attention is drawn to the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood over several decades, seeking to Islamize society, with the complicity or silence of most successive governments in Kuwait. Neglecting educational facilities and outdated curricula, turning a blind eye to cheating, and maintaining deteriorating conditions reveal a semi-official desire to keep things as they are.

As a result, the current legislators seem focused solely on furthering an agenda of Islamization, transforming Kuwait into an entirely different state. This new direction is in stark contrast to the beautiful and prosperous nation it once was, resembling a Gulf branch of the Taliban. They advocate preventing women from taking on positions in the judiciary or even leaving their homes, and suggest establishing companies focused on “Islamic” energy and Shariacompliant pharmaceutical factories.

Additionally, they push for granting the state’s nationality to an excessive number of individuals annually, causing concerns about potential demographic, political, and economic impacts on the citizens of Kuwait. Those who are not invested in Kuwait’s well-being, prosperity, and progress have wreaked havoc and promoted unjustified extremism in the name of democracy.

They aim to change the identity of society and seize control from its people, introducing proposals and positions that are strange and detrimental to the nation’s interests. We have to expect dozens of dark laws that restrict freedoms, and many miserable Kandhari laws proposals that will gradually make us lose faith in our democracy, our homeland, and our institutions, and this is what the enemies of the nation wish to see.
