Kuwaiti Professor: People Who Believe The Quran Is Above The Constitution Are Betraying Kuwait

In a TV interview, Dr. Sheikha Al-Jassem, a professor of philosophy at Kuwait University, made a plea for keeping religion separate from politics and said that "anyone who believes that the Quran, or the shari'a, or the interpretations of these religious texts are above the constitution is betraying the state of Kuwait." Al-Jassem, who said that "every religion gets hijacked at some point by the politicians," stressed that the source of authority should be the constitution and said that placing the Quran above the constitution was "the undoing of our democratic regime." She was speaking on the Kuwaiti Al-Shahed TV channel on March 8, 2016.
