KUWAIT: Interior Ministry Undersecretary Lt Gen Suleiman Al-Fahad said that begging is a crime against society and hurts the spiritual nature of the holy month of Ramadan, adding that those caught begging will be immediately deported. Fahad added that in Islam, the dignity of a human being is protected against humiliation, and begging is a form of humiliation, which is why it is prohibited in Islam. Whether the beggar has a valid residency, visit or family visa, he warned that those arrested begging will be deported immediately.

Moreover, he said the police’s plan is to spread out and monitor the mosque yards, malls, commercial areas and residential areas, besides receiving calls to arrest beggars quickly. He urged the public to call 112 or inform any police in case they see a beggar. Begging has become the profession of those unemployed and participated in by both genders, he noted. Also, it has become apparent that the women and children ‘hide behind the veil’ so as not to reveal their identity, he said referring to niqab.
