If you have sex without marriage, you could be jailed for up to 7 years, Qatari government warns
Mumbai: One such news is coming out from Qatar which is a matter of discussion at this time. Actually, there are strict rules regarding sex. So this rule also applies to the people here or to the tourists who come here. It is also illegal to have sex with anyone other than your spouse. Yes, it is illegal to have sex just because you are in a relationship or with each other’s consent. Which also has a severe punishment.
Therefore, in Qatar, if unmarried couples are caught having sex, then the police can arrest them. The same can be said of gay couples. The punishment is not one or two but seven years of imprisonment.
This news actually came to the fore during the FIFA World Cup. When tourists or people visiting here are reminded of these rules.
Qatar is hosting this year’s FIFA World Cup. That’s why the World Cup is going to happen here.
The Daily Star quoted Qatari police as saying: “It doesn’t matter if you’re coming as a couple. But if you are single or unmarried, don’t make the mistake of having sex here.”
Sex ban has been imposed for the first time in this year’s World Cup. Post-match and noisy parties have also been banned. Drinking and partying after the match is a trend for the fans of the World Cup, but still, this time it is all banned.
Extramarital sex and homosexuality are illegal in Qatar. In such cases, Qatari hotels do not offer rooms to couples with different surnames.
“The safety of every fan is of paramount importance to us,” said Nasser, chief executive of the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Sex or physical contact without marriage is not a part of our culture. If anyone comes here, he will have to follow the rules of the country.”
