(MENAFN - Arab Times) Spokesperson for the Salafist Movement Fuheid Al-Heilam has said the cabinet is making grave mistake by rejecting some laws approved with consent from the entire community, ministers and the majority of lawmakers, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
One of the rejected laws include capital punishment for blasphemers of Divine Entity and the Holy Prophet, while Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) is revered by believers who do not accept any humiliation or defamation against him, Al-Heilam added.
He also said the death penalty is appropriate punishment for blasphemers of the Prophet, and this mustn't be negotiable. Unfortunately, the law isn't applied in a country dominated by political wrangling and governmental interference, he noted.
He stressed that Kuwait was highly respected among Islamic countries when the executive and legislative authorities toughened the penalty for blasphemy, but the government with its absurdity came out to reverse the decision and harmed the country's image.
Meanwhile, Al-Heilam has asked Parliament to confront the government on this issue and pursue efforts to see to approval of the law to deter people from blaspheming the Prophet. He stressed that the Salafist Movement shall organize series of seminars beginning Tuesday evening, with the participation of many lawmakers including Waleed Al-Tabtabaei, Obeid Al-Wasmi and Mohammad Hayef. The greatness of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) will be explained at the event, and members of the movement will combine efforts to make it successful.
