Nothing But Love For My Blessed Home, Kuwait: Clearing the Air.
So what with all the political troubles that Kuwait has been unfortunately facing in these last few days, I made a post about a trend that I noticed emerging on Twitter a few days ago. This was about the National Dignity March.
I support the idea of Kuwaitis having the free, constitutional right to elect who represents them in parliament and to have a hand in shaping their future as they see fit. In concept, this is what the National Dignity March seems to stand for. It is this CONCEPT that I support. That is all.
Thankfully my loyalties to Kuwait have not been publicly misconstrued by anyone, anywhere so far, but I’d just like to re-iterate them and make my position crystal clear.
I am aware that this movement is backed by some very high profile, Islamic Brotherhood-like individuals. I DO NOT SUPPORT THESE PEOPLE OR THEIR ACTIONS. I have been very publicly critical of their actions in the past and of their political perspectives.
I am also aware that this movement is backed by people who have previously shown examples of tribalism and sectarianism in Kuwait. I am deeply opposed to this method of political mongering and do not consider it an effective or progressive way to achieve democracy.
I am a complete and utter supporter of His Royal Highness the Amir of Kuwait. Full stop. There is no humanly possibly way that I could ever support a political perspective which aims to demean him or his word. I wholly trust in the fact that he is a wise leader and that he truly wants to see Kuwait, in all aspects, flourish and grow under his nurturing.
The only thing about the National Dignity March which I do support is the overarching, larger, general concept of sustaining constitutional rights. I am the most liberal-thinking woman you could ever meet so there is no way I will EVER support the personal thoughts and views which many of the Islamist, sectarian, disrespectful people in this movement represent. This is an indisputable fact.
I am hopeful and optimistic about the fact that my pure intentions and love for Kuwait were always clear but, just in case there are any doubts, this is me clearing the air and separating myself from the negative aspects with which the National Dignity March is associated.
May Allah always keep Kuwait safe, beautiful, and prosper. May Allah guard Kuwait from any cloaked, malicious intentions. May Allah keep the Amir as the beacon of wisdom and peace shining on this blessed land which I love and will always call my home–Kuwait. ♡
All my love!
