Muslims legislators say ‘no’ to building new churches

The FIDES News Agency reports that, in Kuwait, the state / city legislators have refused to allow the building of churches on the grounds that Islam is the state religion and that “that Islamic scholars are unanimous in banning the building of non-Muslim worship places in the Arabian Peninsula.” Despite the municipality having allocated a number of sites for the construction of churches, the negative reaction of lawmakers and Islamic scholars led to the abandonment of the plan.

Should such actions be taken by Christians or Jews against Muslims there would, rightly, be an outcry against the practice of religion. But in this case the matter is quietly abandoned.
