Temple at Doha for Hindus

Islam is the predominant Religion and makes up 77.5% of the population of Qatar and all others make up the remaining 22.5%.

Sunni Muslims constitute 98% percent of Muslim population. The majority of noncitizens are from South and Southeast Asian and Arab countries working on temporary employment contracts, accompanied by family members in some cases. Most noncitizens are Sunni or Shi'a Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, or Bahá'ís. Most foreign workers and their families live near the major employment centers of Doha, Al Khor, Mesaieed, and Dukhan.

The Hindu community is almost exclusively Indian, while Buddhists include South, Southeast, and East Asians. Most Bahá'ís come from Iran. Religion is not a criterion for citizenship, according to the Nationality Law. However, nearly all Qatari citizens are either Sunni or Shi'a Muslims, except for at least one Christian, a few Bahá'ís, and their respective families who were granted citizenship.

No foreign missionary groups operate openly in the country, but in 2008 the government allowed some churches to conduct mass. In March 2008 the Roman Catholic Church “Our Lady of the Rosary” was consecrated in Doha.

I have no interest in any religion whatsoever but I cannot keep my eyes closed to what is so obvious.

Why should only non - 'People of the Book' religions,viz.,Hindus and Buddhists be not allowed to practice their religion here when they are contributing so much to the country's growth?

Qatar have allowed prostitution (under-hand near Ramada area), Dating websites, Alcohol bars, Dance bars, US base and all sorts of Entertainment....how are we tolerant to such Unislamic cultures, which will not only destroy our next generation but take away our islamic faith as well.

While Hindus were asking for a common place of worship and nothing else like Casinos or Peep Shows!
Give a thought...
Apologies, I'm blunt.
Peace!

some of you guys could attend and represent your religion and faith.

Make a general consensus on which Lord (Rama, Krishna, Ayyappa or Ganpati?) to be in 'Doha Hindu Temple' based it close to Indian Cultural Centre. No caste bound please and live with peace, unity and harmony.
All the best....

Ash, you really have great knowledge about Hinduism and now it is the time to become more Religious and need to be there everyday at 4.30 am, prior sunrise ;-)
Peace

Victory - :( I sleep at 4 30.. with sunrise if given a choice.....

But honestly.. I would have had loved to attend and see tht Oct 20 function.... I ll be back home then...

But if its a Temple.... It should be Ayyappa... 9.99/10 are from Kerala.... and other Gods wont mind if we pray them through him :)

Person we hate most is loved by someone else.... everyone is living and seeing his unique world...

There won't be any Hindu Temple in Qatar. So no use aeguing about it. Although it would be good to have a Temple in Qatar, for Hindu, Buddhists and Sikhs.

IMHO,if at least talking about it gives them some amount of satisfaction,let them have it...coz the people who demand it also know deep down that it's probably never going to happen....so just leave it.

QL's MODs are badly inspired by few QL users.
:P

ashwindoke

Nothing has ever changed with so many text riots on QL...

hope everyone knows tht....
If it is for entertainment sake.... keep having fun on whichever forum one intends too...........

Religiously... doesn matter whether there is a temple or not..... every Hindu mus be praying at home...

Temples like every other religious place (Mosque/church) more than religion... are more important for social gatherings in the name of religion.....

as far as i know the srilankan buddhists do have some sort of ritual in their embassy and do even worship there... its a fact... i know from buddhist colleagues... may be they should raid that place :P

anonymous

well you see in this picture the LADY the SHAKITI MAATA of yours just killing a man why??? that too with a rod how painfull .... I THISNK HINDUS ARE BORN TERRORIST ... all there religion teaches is to KILL, EAT VEGETABLES AS THE VEGETABLES ARE ABUNDANT IN NATURE & MOSTLY FREE, WORSHIP STONES, DRINK PEE, INCREASE ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION, WORSHIP ANY THING THAT THEY THINK IS SUPERIOR EVEN IT CAN BE PRIVATE PARTS OF HUMANS, ..... YOU LIVE IN 20TH CENTURY GUYS WAKE UP. SEARCH FOR ANY THING THAT IS LOGICAL

abdullahrafe - Man.. I second you on that....

So much of stuff....

I don know why they.. I mean WE.. left BEATING OURSELVES for FORGIVING A PROPHET for a SIN.....

Punishing ourselves for Forgiving a man who is spreading his name in true sense..... and mos loved by God for doing tht

Why did we miss that.... :(

Other thing I miss is the regular entertainment of calculating the correct time when God listens to us.... it is so fun... :(
Wish we had tht too....

I also miss the fact tht it is not compulsory to wear same color cloths for all.... It is so diff to choose diff cloths.... for diff occasions..
Uniform system sounds good.. and makes sense too....

too hell with Music n dance too... utter waste of time...
When I feel light ... motivated...
for the sake of refreshment ... we are wasting so much of time and money.... :(
Besides making people like Brad Pitt n Angelina rich... we could work and earn more.... :(

I also miss having a Book of Quantum Physics and implementing it....
Even if I don understand or not qualified enough to unreveal wht is mentioned in tht.... :p
