KUWAIT CITY, Jan 13: Min­istry of Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs Un­der­sec­re­tary Fa­reed Emadi said the com­mit­tee formed by the Cabi­net, whose mem­bers are from many au­thor­i­ties, re­cently dis­cussed ways to curb the ris­ing num­ber of un­li­censed mosques (pre-fab­ri­cated struc­tures) in some ar­eas, reports Al­rai daily.

Speak­ing to the daily, Emadi clar­i­fied the lo­ca­tions for such mosques will be de­ter­mined once the Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil is­sues the li­censes.

This pro­ject will be funded through the donation of Awqaf Sec­re­tariat Gen­eral which al­lo­cated about KD1 mil­lion for the con­struc­tion of 17 mosques at a cost of KD60,000 per mosque, Emadi added.

He af­firmed there is no fol­low up for con­trac­tors who did not re­ceive the con­tract for con­struc­tion of mosques as their ten­ders were re­leased and they won in the bid­ding but they failed for many rea­sons. He said the min­istry deals with such con­trac­tors ac­cord­ing to the law to en­sure its funds are pro­tected.
