The festive events organised by the Ministry of Interior (MoI) on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr have attracted thousands of members of Asian communities, in a scene that reflects Qatar’s keen interest in the welfare of residents as well as the ministry’s keenness on community participation in various events.
The events, which took place in Asian Residential City in Industrial Area and Al Khor Industrial Zone, included popular and folklore performances by Indian, Nepalese, Bengali and Sri Lankan expatriates.
The Eid celebrations also included awareness education on security and safety, laws regulating the entry and exit of expatriates, labour market and other laws and regulations. The Department of Community Police, the General Directorate for Drug Control, the Human Rights Department, the Research and Follow-up Department, the General Directorate of Civil Defence, the Al Fazaa Police Department and the General Directorate of Traffic participated in presenting the awareness programmes.
Brigadier Abdullah Khalifa al-Muftah, director, public relations department at the MoI, said that organisation of such programmes and events reflects the ministry’s interest in all those who live on this land and its continuous keenness to reach out to the communities to enhance the community partnership.
“This keen interest does not stop at organisation of the celebrations, but there are many events that are organised in order to raise the awareness of the Asian communities with the laws and regulations in force in the country,” he said, praising the concerned departments of the ministry for participating in the event.
For his part, Community Police Department director Colonel Sultan Mohammed al-Kaabi said that such events provide an opportunity to disseminate security and cultural awareness programmes, strengthen relations between the police and the community and enhance co-operation to achieve greater security and safety.
The MoI has been organising special celebrations for Asian communities on religious and national events in order to enhance communication among members of these communities, strengthen community partnership and develop awareness in the areas of security, safety and labour market in addition to promoting cultural communication between the communities residing in Qatar.
