In today’s issue of Al-Jareeda newspaper, the Ministry of Communication, who controls the internet in Kuwait, has ordered the main ISPs here to block youtube. The reason behind this as per the official letter (below) was religious. Some clip on youtube (video or audio, does not really make a difference) melodying the Holy Quran with musical instruments which of course against Islam.

Bluntly, this is the most stupid decision I’ve ever heard or read! In one side, they could have contacted youtube to take the clip out , on another; they can not and will never be assured that such clip (or anything something similar to it) will never be uploaded to other sites nor spreaded through emails. such a backwarded mentality..
