The Reason Why Alcohol is Banned in Kuwait

3:42 PM

Everyone (outside and even those who lives in Kuwait) thought that alcohol was banned here due to religious reasons.

It may well be but since I'm not an expert in Islam I am not entirely sure.

What i'm sure of is what I've read from memoirs and such that alcohol wasn't banned until the last 60's in the Middle East.

One book said that it was banned in Saudi due to the high rate of scandals and death induced by alcohol.

People who worked here in Kuwait way before I was born, attest to the fact that alcohol was indeed legal back then.

So why was it banned and illegal in Kuwait today?

TIME dot com has the reason.
