SHAFAQNA -Â Unconfirmed reports have announced that Hujjat al-Islam Jaâ€™far Ibrahimi, an Iraqi Shiâ€™ite cleric living in Kuwait, as been deported at at the request of a number of political activists in the Persian Gulf monarchy.
According to the news website ‘alkhaleejaffairs’, a number of extremist Kuwaiti activists and members of the countryâ€™s parliament announced the news of Hujjat al-Islam Ibrahimiâ€™s expulsion, claiming that they had read that he had insulted the Prophet Muhammadâ€™s companions in sermons at a mosque and had asked the government to deport him.
Ahmad al-Azemi and Muhammad al-Jabbari, members of the Kuwaiti National Assembly, tweeted: â€œWe appreciate the Minister of the Interior for his careful and rapid attention to our request for the immediate expulsion of Shaykh Ibrahimi.â€
Kuwait has previously expelled Shiâ€™ite scholars, including a case last year where they expelled Zaman al-Hasanawi, an cleric of Iraqi origin living in Kuwait.
They have also banned several Shiâ€™ite and Sunni clerics from entering the country.
