Expats caught will be deported after the punishment ends

Those caught eating or drinking in public during daytime in the month of Ramadan will be detained until the end of the month.

They explained that no special consideration or exception will be shown to any nationality, as violators of this law will be referred for interrogations and then to the court where they will be given appropriate punishment.

Expatriates caught in the act will be deported after the punishment ends. The sources revealed that the relevant state authorities will prepare brochures in this regard in different languages including Hindi in order to spread awareness about this law.

They reiterated that those caught eating or drinking on roads, public places and in front of others during daytime in the month of Ramadan will face legal penalties.
