It’s not really shocking news when we get “whatsapped” the latest fight video from one of the many shopping mall arenas around Kuwait. For the past two weeks up to 6 different fights occurred that included men, teenagers, security guards and finally ladies. It was the talk of Twitter and the jokes for many of the comedians on Instagram.
Now, what’s going on?
1- We can say that there is some kind of mentality that gives us the right to get our rights (revenge) by our selves. If this includes violence then be it. It our way or the highway. This has been a build up where people do not trust the law to get them their rights.
2- Tension might have been building for a while for many different reasons. Whether political or social. Thus the community “hatred” levels grew and grew and grew ….. well till someone has to release it somehow.
3- Acceptance, somehow we can’t accept or just listen to the other opinions. It’s either you do what I want or I punch you in the face, you hear me?
4- Boredom, is it getting that boring that fights are part of the entertainment we need?
You know I am sure by the end of this week another fight will be broadcasted to our phones in HD, yet when do we realise that there is something very wrong going on. Multiple times fights have ended with murder and yet we did not find any justice in any of these murders.
Whether its the law or the society, somehow we need to start acting like a civilised country. Yes fights break out everywhere, doesn’t mean its right. The law of the jungle is not the way we move on…
