‘Bedoon’ book banned

bedoun-bookKUWAIT: The Information Ministry has banned a novel titled “Stray Memories” by writer Abdullah Al-Busais published by the Arab Cultural Center in Beirut, according to Al-Hayat newspaper.

Busais told Al-Hayat that Kuwait’s information ministry banned the novel which talks about Kuwaiti society before and after the Iraq invasion.

He said that it discusses humanitarian relations in a society that is passing through an integral period in its history. He said the banning decision relied on a report of a committee at the information ministry.

He said the novel speaks about the life of a bedoon youth in Kuwait, adding “I was really surprised by the ban decision which considered the report of one person in the committee”. — Alaan
