‘Tweeter’ held for blasphemy

KUWAIT CITY, March 27: A team of security officers from the Ministry of Interior arrested Tuesday an unidentified person for allegedly posting blasphemous statements about the Holy Prophet and his wife (Peace Be Upon Them) on his Twitter account.

In a press statement, the ministry revealed the officers took the step in compliance with the directive of First Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Sheikh Ahmad Al-Humoud.

However, the suspect vehemently denied the allegations during the preliminary interrogation, claiming somebody used his Twitter account to post the blasphemous statements. He stressed, “I will never attack the Holy Prophet (PBUH).”

The alleged tweets had drawn various reactions from lawmakers. The action may lead to sectarian conflicts because some lawmakers immediately seized the opportunity to call for killing the suspect, while threatening to grill the minister if he fails to take the necessary action.

MP Bader Al-Dahoum called for killing the suspect, while MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaei warned that the people of Kuwait will be forced to take the law into their hands if the government fails to act accordingly. He said the divine law supersedes man-made regulations or rules.
