“The law will include enforcing the veil, Islamic dress for women, and restrictions on women’s travel without approval from father or husband.” With more Sharia to come later, if they succeed.
“Kuwaiti Salafists Prepare Draft Law,” from MEMRI, June 16 (thanks to Morgaan Sinclair):
A draft law prepared by prominent Islamist clerics is to be submitted by Kuwaiti Salafist MPs to Kuwait’s National Assembly, a source close to the Islamic Salafist Alliance said.
The law will include enforcing the veil, Islamic dress for women, and restrictions on women’s travel without approval from father or husband.
A special committee will be formed to examine whether women need to travel at all.
The law also plans to adopt some Islamic laws to regulate financial companies and banks, to curb media freedom, and to introduce gender segregation at universities, colleges, ministries, and private institutions.
The source added that if the draft law is passed, then more Islamic laws will be introduced later.
