KUWAIT CITY, KUWAIT (Worthy News)-- A Kuwaiti parliamentarian will soon draft legislation banning the construction of churches and other non-Islamic places of worship in the tiny emirate.

Kuwaiti Member of Parliament Osama Al-Munawer first announced on Twitter that he planned to submit a law calling for the removal of all churches in the country, but later explained that existing churches will remain as only the construction of new non-Islamic places of worship should be banned.

Fellow MP Mohammad Hayef supported the proposed law.

“Kuwait already has an excessive number of churches compared to the country’s Christian minority,” he said in the Kuwait Times.
