Interior Ministry warned people against eating in public during Ramadan

The Interior Ministry on Saturday warned citizens and expatriates against eating of drinking in public during the fasting month of Ramadhan, due to commence in few days, because it would be illegal and contradicting with Islamic teachings.

Ministry spokesman Brigadier Mohammad Al-Sabr said any person seen eating of drinking publicly would be fined KD 100 (USD 347) and jailed for one month maximum, or one of these penalties.

Al-Sabr also called on shops and restaurants to abide by the law or face closure.
