A large structure at a roundabout in Faiha area built in the form of a pyramid is provoking controversy, as some people look upon the figure as a symbol of Freemasonry due to the prevalence of the practice in the area, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Mayor of Faiha retired Major General Mohammad Dhahi Al-Hawas refuted the claim saying the structure does not represent the system and institution of freemason.
He explained an engineer living in the area Fahad Al-Waqyan volunteered to design the structure while Kuwait Municipality and the Ministry of Public Works approved of it before execution. He affirmed that residents of Faiha are religious and well behaved, and that the ideology of Freemasonry does not exist in the area or Kuwait in general. He stressed the rumor is unfounded, ruse and misleading, because the engineer who designed the pyramid is not a Freemason.
He noted the residents of Faiha coexist peacefully with love, and considered those insinuating the residents of Faiha are into Freemasonry as liars. He challenged the rumor mongers to prove a single Kuwaiti citizen is into Freemasonry.
In his comment, designer of the structure Engineer Al-Waqyan said he came out with the idea based on the beauty of mindset rather than Freemasonry or other ideologies. He corroborated the Mayor saying the residents of Faiha are religious and won’t allow anybody to use the symbol of Freemasonry to represent the area. He indicated the triangular structure is suitable for the location and that water fountain with lights will be built in the same location, indicating he is waiting for official approval of the project.
