Kuwait To Deport Expats Who Protested Against Nupur Sharma
Kuwait is deporting all the expats as a punishment, who protested against ex-BJP leader Nupur Sharma, in Fahaheel. Their visa will be canceled permanently.
Those who took part in rallies against Nupur Sharma’s remarks in Kuwait were severely punished. The demonstrators would be forced to return to their respective countries, according to the Gulf country.
Their visa will be revoked permanently because they “violated the country’s rules and regulations.”
On Sunday, the Kuwaiti government took harsh measures against people participating in rallies following comments made about Prophet Mohammad by former BJP politicians Nupur Sharma & Naveen Jindal.
The demonstrators would be extradited to their respective countries, according to the Gulf country.
