Saudi Arabia to expel non-muslim residents disrespecting Ramadan

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Tuesday issued warning to non-Muslim residents who eat, drink, or smoke in public during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
Ramadan begins in the kingdom on Wednesday.

“Non-Muslim residents in the kingdom must not eat or drink in public during Ramadan, in respect to the holiness of Ramadan and the feelings of Muslims,” said an interior ministry statement published by the official SPA news agency.

Foreigners caught breaking the fast in public “will be subject to deterrent measures that include terminating their employment contracts and expelling them from the kingdom,” the ministry said.

It added that “companies, corporations and individuals are required to inform their employees” of the rules.
