Called upon for action

On the one hand I applaud the interest of the American government for issuing gun licences to their citizens for their personal safety, but on the other hand, this gun culture is not being utilised properly for the interest of the people (“US gun lobby agrees to examine ‘bump stocks’ after Las Vegas massacre”, Gulf News, October 8). It leads to more innocent lives being lost, which is unacceptable. We have been seeing the lives of innocent civilians being taken by the ‘gun culture’ in many public places, and it is increasing day by day. Mainly because of the attitudes and nature of the gun holders, many are in the possession of illegal weapons. My appeal to President Donald Trump’s administration is to completely eradicate the menace of issuing gun licences to their people, not just for the safety of the American people, but also for visiting expatriates. Will the present administration take this call?

Letter Published in The National UAE on 12Oct 17,Will Trump review his position on the Iran nuclear deal?

In reference to your online article Britain’s May urges Trump not to end Iran nuclear pact (October 11), it is clear that the international community is increasingly opposing the recent Iran US nuclear deal. If Trump agrees to maintain the nuclear deal, the international community – all but Britain’s Theresa May – feels the region’s security will be put in peril and many other problems could arise. Will Mr Trump reconsider his strategy with Iran. Let’s wait and see.

Lifting the ban

The long standing ban on women driving was recently lifted in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and this was praised by the entire globe (“Authorities dismiss claim woman drove into Saudi Arabia from Kuwait”, Gulf News, October 6). This shows that women are playing an important role. It is evident that lifting the ban indicates they will also be given an opportunity in other areas from the government. This new policy will save a lot of money for women, as they were engaging male drivers for commuting to office and other places. This will boost confidence for women, to enter the aviation industry, as the government has already announced the provision of scholarships for training pilots. In the coming days, Saudi Arabia will be more visible on the global map. Good move from Saudi Arabia.

Deplorable act
Filed on October 9, 2017 | Last updated on October 9, 2017 at 09.54 pm

The news, ‘Man burns four children to death at Brazil’s kindergarten,’ (KT, Oct 7) made for a painful read. The murderer is the watchman of the school and suffered from depression. Whatever be the reason, what he did is cruel and unacceptable. Such people should not be employed in a public place, especially where kids study.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 10 Oct 17,Gun control needed

The recent shooting incident in Las Vegas has had the highest number of causalities in US history (“America’s aversion to gun control”, Gulf News, October 4). Whoever is the administrator of the White House, the shooting culture is highly unacceptable. The government should tighten the security in larger gatherings like at concerts. It is high time that the US authorities take a strong strategy to eradicate the gun menace, which is existing there for decades and save the innocent people. I pray for the victims.

Letter Published in The National UAE on 10 Oct 17,Food allergies prove perplexing to this day

Your opinion article, Why is there an increase in potentially fatal allergies? (October 8), was an interesting read. That global intolerance has drastically increased is very worrying. Parents should, indeed, monitor symptoms periodically. Schools must also keep a tab and inform parents about their children’s food habits and even minor allergic reactions. The topic of allergies is a cumbersome one that continues to prove challenging even to researchers to this day.
