    What a wonderful video, thanks so much for posting this. Really gives a good inside view which a lot of expats are unaware. I had no idea about the insence… ok, i knew they burned it but didnt know they did it after gatherings in that fashion. always wondered why Qataris smell so good… (not the expensive perfume smell), thot they put the oud in their cupboards. I considered doing that myself… heehee!

Freedom of Expression

    Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the Qatari Government is a signatory of states: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any medias and regardless of any frontiers.

    The Emiri Decision Number 86 of the year 2007 on the establishment of the Doha Free Information Centre marked yet another step towards establishing a State of rights and freedom of speech. The decision stipulated that the Centre be a non-profit organization, headquartered in Doha City, and have the authority to establish other affiliated centres inside and outside Qatar. It is worth mentioning that His Highness the Emir issued a decision in 1998 annulling the ministry of information, giving birth to a new era of freedom of speech where censorship was removed from local media.
