Qatar decrees

"A group of single doctors and architects have urged for an explanation on a decree that banned bachelors from living in residential areas in Doha.
"We are aware of the municipal decisions to relocate single company workers to new areas outside the residential neighbourhoods, but we do not know whether the ban applies to us as well," doctors and architects said, local daily Al Sharq reported on Wednesday.
The inquiry followed a decision by the municipality to cut off electricity supply to force them out of the residences where they are living, they said.
"They have put stickers on our houses asking us to vacate the houses, but we thought that it was not a blanket ban that included everyone, even government employees, and that the decision to relocate bachelors was confined to company workers and labourers," they said."
