Kuwaiti cleric Nabil Al Awadi hit out at the UAE on the backdrop of dismissal of 8 Kuwaiti students from UAE's universities.

The deliberate affront and attack on the UAE by Muslim Brotherhood members is still ongoing in a bid from them to disseminate what could distort the country’s image without verifying the authenticity of the news they have.

After Qatari Muslim scholar of Egyptian descent Yousuf Al Qaradawi transgressed on the UAE and offended it during a Friday prayer sermon last month from a Qatari mosque, Kuwaiti cleric Nabil Al Awadi, who apparently belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood, hit out at the UAE without having tangible evidence in hand on the backdrop of dismissing eight Kuwaiti undergraduates enrolled in UAE's universities.

However, the state-run news agency Wam denied that the Kuwaiti students were dismissed arbitrarily, but justified that they have been dismissed because of flouting university rules and regulations.

Meanwhile, the social networking websites Twitter saw lots of tweets that denounced Al Awadi’s acts for raising groundless offences against the UAE without ascertaining of whether they are true or not before he posted them on his social networking pages.

In reply to Al Awadi’s attack against the UAE, Minister of State for UAE Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash tweeted that the transgression by the Muslim Brotherhood’s leading members and figures on the UAE denotes and reflects the despair of those who were given a chance, but failed to seize the occasion.

The UAE, he said, was said to be an example of success and achievement. “Trying to make up accusations and blame the UAE for–though they contradict what really is– is a silly losing bet.”

“The UAE has the full right to protect its society, maintain and preserve its sovereignty, and safeguard lives of its citizens,” he stated.
