Good Day All,
somehow and some where ,
I have my personal opinion which can be a good comments and may case some body specially does not like it.
people who spend in Kuwait most of their life time and establish a business for the last DAYS TO SPEND GOOD sudden they have to close all and go back which will be defiantly not good for them .

now people those who are in job and still they are healthy and can survive in Kuwait without any issue and they have projects such as their children are studying in university and need to support them in this case of 60 year they will loose much and may have to stop their children study .

this is my own opinion which could give a good message or may not .

Thanks / Mohammed Ashfaq #######0

something strange here...this 60+ problem decision was issued almost starting of this year and it caused negative economic and humanitarian consequences. many left the country due to non renewal of residences. my question is why all awaken in October ??? the fatwa and the minister were not aware of this decision since start of 2021 ?

whatever decisions are taken by Govt. officials
those are definitely taken in good intentions.
what i understand is,
govt. had taken this decision with an intention that people who are 60+ should take retirement and live healthy retired life
but i feel, the above rule can be applicable on people who are having medical complications
people with cardiac history, diabetic etc.
such people need a proper rest and healthy life style
working with such medical complications can be very risky to their life.
this is just my personal opinion
