No shisha allowed during Iftar at Ramadan tents in Dubai

Dubai Municipality has issued a ban on smoking shisha in Ramadan tents during Iftar.

The ban will take place daily from when the cannon marks the breaking of fast for the day until 9pm.

In an interview with Gulf News, Dr Nassim Rafee, Acting Director of Public Health and Safety Department at Dubai Municipality explained the decision saying: “Iftar tents are usually filled with families, and because many of the elderly and children visit such venues, Dubai Municipality implemented the rule to ensure the health and well-being of all.”
