I was at Al kout mall and inquired with the man running that machine. When I asked if I can do the finger print he told me no I cannot. When I asked why, since I live in Kuwait he ignored me and told me I cannot do the finger prints. He didn’t give me any valid reason why I couldn’t so I left. He was rude and I felt like I was being discriminated against
