Bloggers Criticize The Phenomenon Of Selling The Holy Quran And Zamzam Water On Phone
Several bloggers have criticized the phenomenon of selling the Holy Quran and Zamzam water on phone and soliciting donation through unknown channels – an act they regarded as scamming and begging via phone.
A blogger identified as Rayeq Al-Rayeq tweeted, “What is happening to some expatriates, especially people from some Arab nations claiming to be calling from ‘Bayt Al-Quran and Zamzam Water’ to solicit donation, in addition to selling water and distributing Quran? They refused to give the address when I requested but promised to send it through a representative (mandoub). I told them ‘no dealings without address’. This made them to switch off the line”.
On his Twitter account, another blogger named Muhanad was astonished over a similar phone call he received from one of the fraudsters, saying “The recent development in Kuwait is unacceptable as a country governed by the Constitution. It is impossible in Germany for a stranger to call me without my consent or permission”.
