Hundreds of expatriates from Asian communities in the country participated in the Eid al-Adha celebrations in different parts of the country. The Ministry of Interior (MoI) and Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (MADLSA) provided important awareness tips for the members of these communities. 

Festive events were held at Asian Town, Barwa Al Baraha near the Industrial Zone and at the Barwa sports complex for workers in Al Khor. The celebrations included a number of artistic and heritage performances reflecting the cultures of different Asian countries such as India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and others.

During the celebrations, the MoI provided awareness-raising activities on security and safety and the role of community policing in enhancing relations with the public as well as boosting security and order. The activities also shed light on some laws related to residency and work within the State, workers’ rights and duties and other related topics. On its part, the MADLSA raised awareness on the Labour Law, workers’ rights and the duties stipulated therein, as well as the services provided by the ministry to all citizens and residents.
