Kuwait:Woman Arrested for Chewing gum During Ramadan

Earlier this week ago I posted an article about the Kuwait Islamic Bank that imposed Sharia on a Colorado real estate firm. Today we get this story about a woman arrested in Kuwait for chewing gum. I know....I know....they are a "moderate" ally of ours.

Woman nabbed for chewing gum on the first day of Ramadan

Kuwait :A woman was arrested on the first day of Ramadan for breaking her fast by chewing gum.

According to sources, security officers from the Hawalli governorate spotted the woman chewing gum at 5:30 am while they were on patrol duty. When they questioned her about the act, she said she had the personal freedom to do as she pleased.

She was referred to the authorities and a case was registered.

Meanwhile, two Kuwaiti citizens were arrested for cases previously registered them.

According to sources, both citizens were stopped for identification by security officials on patrol duty. While verifying their documents, however, it was discovered that one citizen had a drug-related case registered against him for which he was sentenced to a prison term of 12 years. The other citizen had several civil cases registered against him.

Both the men were handed over to the authorities for further action.
