Erasing Bedoon last names

Last month, Bedoon activist and member of Kuwaiti Bedoon Committee Nawaf Al-Bader criticized the Central Agency for dropping Bedoon family names in an attempt to deprive them off their tribes and families that come as evidences to their old residency in Kuwait. Al-Nawaf described this act as immoral and unethical knowing the importance of tribe and family names in the Arab culture. Today, the Central Agency admitted that they have been erasing the last names of Bedoon saying that they are fabricated. The agency said they went through the civil records that were made at the year of 1985 and decided to take off all the tribe names and family names that did not match.
