'Musical Parties' During Holiday is "Moral Corruption"

Sample Flyer of a party in Kuwait

 I understand the serious reflection of a holiday as big as Eid. Maybe what they think of "musical parties" is more of a club scene. In any case....I just have to shake my head at this because this is something an American would never see in the news. I'm thankful that in the West, religion or religious traditions are not forced upon us.

Don’t Sanction Musical Parties During Holidays

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 4: MP Mohammed Hayef has warned the government particularly the ministries of Interior, Commerce and Industry and Information against organizing music parties during the Eid Al-Adha holidays. The warning came following advertisements placed by some people through the media outlets, reports Al-Rai daily.

In press statement, MP Hayef referred to the advertisements and campaigns on social networking website Twitter by a group of youths who talked about organizing music parties in some suspicious locations during the Eid holidays.

The parliamentarian said such functions should be stopped. He also said the Ministry of Interior must fight this moral corruption in “our society. We will be watching closely any violations that will take place in this regard and take to task the authorities which fail to do their duty.”
