DR YOUSEF S.H. AL ZALZALAH
(Member of Parliament KUWAIT)
Being a successful Politician in Kuwait Parliament and being a fourth time Member of Parliament in
Kuwait. How do you rate your political journey?
In contesting elections one has to have a good personality, Education, Knowledge and interest of serving
people. This all people of Kuwait saw in me and they knew that they can count on me they trusted me as
they saw my vast experience in fields of different categories. People of Kuwait are convinced with me
and my raising of voice in Kuwaiti parliament about their day to day issues.
You being into journalism earlier, how do u do define social and political scenario presently in Kuwait
What I analyze is that we have freedom in Kuwait freedom of expressions, freedom to say and freedom
to speech be it a minister or an official if you don’t like there ways of handling things. The parliament did
referendums with the people of their interest and what they want It was housing, health and education
are the primarily concern and we are successful in doing this
Sir what fundamental and social changes you see amongst the people of Kuwait after the invasion of
Kuwait by Iraq in gulf war? Did invasion of Kuwait paved more ways of democratically openness in
In any society some systems prevails like, social, educational, political and as it with Kuwait too. As for 6
months we were in the invasion by Saddam Husain and that changed Kuwait completely to deal with the
outer world and internally. Our life changed completely in dealing with all aspects of life. Basically it is
jihad bin Nafs (self empowerment) and we learned our failures and importance of democracy. Invading
Kuwait was a failure in our part but we took it as a setback and learned our mistake and moved forward.
What is your say about the current scenario in whole Arab world and attack on shia Mosque?
We are sitting with on a time bomb there are group of people who have nothing to do with Islam they
are away from being human. They want to spread hatred, kill, and destroy the historical monuments in
Syria, Afghanistan and other countries. They are the enemies of the peace loving world we should face
them they are in no control we know what ISIS was doing in other parts of the world but it shocked us
for what they did in a mosque in Kuwait .We have understood the war is not outside but it is from inside
also. We have made new stringent laws to tackle them and are ready to partner the world in fight
against ISIS and there terrorism.
How will you face this ISIS challenge and what is the role the Amir of Kuwait is playing in this?
Amir of Kuwait is very upset and has issued a statement already. He takes Kuwaitis as his sons and
daughters and has asked the authorities to take all necessary steps to safeguard our lives and
properties. Amir was himself present after the blast in the mosque. He cried and security requested him
to leave but he said he will not move anywhere till all are shifted to hospitals. He immediately released
orders to all Kuwaitis to be united though we are of different communities forwarded his full help to the
victims. We have to under flag and one Amir.
Our government fantastic job in arresting criminals in less than 48 hours left be from inside Kuwait or
outside. We found the man who was a suicide bomber and all his associates .Parliament immediately
sanctioned all we needed or asked by the government or authorities.
What is your say about the ideology some Muslims perceive of Jihad and destruction?
It is absolute clear that Islam is the religion of peace, brotherhood; Muslims will never kill any innocent.
Islam teaches love and affection .These terrorist and there sponsors are preaching Islam though they
may be Muslims they are preaching monetarism they are not Muslims. Islam prohibits all types of
What will be the message of Amir who recently was awarded as a Humanity Ambassador from United
When Amir was a Prime minister and Minister of External affairs he was helping all poor countries
Muslims and non Muslims and that was a continues process. There are two departments in Kuwait for
the benefits of the people across globe (1) Kuwait fund and (2) Kuwait investment fund.
We help countries in Infrastructure, Science, Medicines, Health, etc.
United Nation saw this, only Kuwait is a country with this type of a program in this whole world so they
nominated Amir for this award. Amir of Kuwait is basically Amir of Insaniyat (humanity)
What is your opinion on Palestinian issue?
Israel is responsible for all that is happening in Middle East because if Arabs don’t fight amongst
themselves they will fight Israel so Israel and those who are affiliated to Israel does not want peace.
Israel is the one who created ISIS, Al Qaida, Al Nusra and etc.
Muslims knows these very well first thing for peace in this world which we have to do is remove Israel
from Palestine. Israel came from Europe, Russia, and other parts of the world and Inshallah Israel will be
ousted from Palestine.
Sir, last question, we came to know that you are visiting India, what is the purpose of the visit.
I am coming to India with the message from Amir and all Kuwaitis of Peace, Brotherhood, Love, Unity
