Alright, my idea was to get there, get confronted from whatever security guard (Or a civilian) to know if the retarded ban is true or false. And apparently as I thought, it’s just a hoax.
I read Kuwait Times article, watched Taw Al-Leil interview with the four horsemen (The four men who got interviewed). They mentioned that they’ve been banned to take photos inside\outside the scientific center (Which is why I went there).
I went as close as 30cm to each security guard I saw and took photos. They said nothing and kept on doing what they were doing. I kept on going deeper and deeper (But didn’t get inside. Didn’t have enough time) and no one even knew I exist.
However, a security personnel approached me telling me that using tripods and zooming lenses are prohibited by the scientific management (NOT THE GOVERNMENT!!) and in case I’m still interested, all I have to do is go inside and ask for permission and explain my purpose, which is practicing my hobby. And they’ll tell you what you need to do and it’s an easy process.
I’ll say this in the meanest way possible:
AL-WATAN TV, KUWAIT TIMES AND THOSE FOUR GUYS ARE ATTENTION WHORES AND WHOEVER BELIEVED THEIR BULLSHIT AND PROMOTED IT IS A FUCKING INNOCENT IDIOT!!
COMMON SENSE, PEOPLE!!
Anyway, here are some of the pictures, you can check the rest in my Flickr Page HERE
