Female fan’s kiss ends music concert in Kuwait
Sun Oct 5, 9:51 AM ET
KUWAIT CITY – A Kuwaiti official says authorities abruptly ended a music concert by an Egyptian singer in this conservative Muslim country when a young female fan jumped on stage, hugged the male singer and gave him a kiss.
Qanas al-Adwani, who heads the government department that monitors public entertainment, says the girl’s behavior at Friday’s concert “defied the conservative traditions” of Kuwait.
Al-Adwani also said Sunday that the fan’s behavior broke controls on public entertainment, which were imposed by influential Muslim fundamentalists after they failed in 1997 to ban concerts altogether. Concerts have to be licensed by the government, and monitors from the Information Ministry watch the crowd to make sure nobody stands up to dance.
There you go folks, the latest news in Kuwait around the internet.
It bothers me how this is the type of news that makes it around. I’m sure people will voice their hate and calls for “freedom” and “democracy” in the unjust religious country of Kuwait after seeing something like this. I mean come on, there are ethics of behavior still, and norms. This news article sort of just makes it worse.
