KUWAIT'S information minister resigned today, one day before he was due to be questioned in parliament mainly over allowing "immoral" Western-style concerts in the Muslim country.

Mohammad Abulhasan handed in his resignation to Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, the state news agency KUNA reported, adding that it was sent to Emir Sheikh Jaber al-Ahmad al-Sabah to decide whether to accept it.

Abulhasan, the only Shiite Muslim minister in the 18-member cabinet, was due to be questioned today by some Islamist MPs over allegations, including neglect of social values, after he approved music concerts deemed un-Islamic by critics.


Make of this, what you will.
