Family Day in villagio

roadtripper
By roadtripper

Last weekend i went to villagio just for buying some groceries,upon reaching the entrance there i saw a security guard confronting a group of pakistanis by not allowing them inside because he said it is a family day i thought of backing out because if it is a family day for sure i will not be allowed also inside the mall. but trying my luck i just pass by that security guard without giving an eye to me allowed me access to the said mall. i felt pitty on those guys what is the difference between me and those asians?
Is there really a LAW ABOUT FAMILY ONLY DAY ON ALL MALLS AND SOUQ AREA SPECIALLY WEEKEND???????
WHATS HAPPENING HERE!!!

Mufy quote: "would you like lot of shabbily dressed people coming to your mall or outlet?

Its interesting a highly qualified manager(my hubby knows) in IT, dressed really well with lots of money to spend was knocked back from City Centre on "family Day", and i guess it was only because he was Indian. Asumptions Assumptions, i dont care how people try to justify this, its disgraceful. I happened to see this in action last weekend at CC, and the look on the guys face when he was refused entry was heart breaking..Disgusting..

Racism/ Descrimination - this are the words from which we can address the current issues in baring expats in most of the malls. I feel that there should be a clearer explanation of what they called Family Day! Lets be fair enough to anyone!

I would suggest to every body this points.

1. To Families- can we give the bachelors a chance to be in the malls on fridays? Reason: Most of the expats are off on fridays and this is the only time to have a liesure time after a week long work. They may come from as far as 100 kilometers just to come in Doha for purchasing personal things and needs.

2. To families- Can you adjust your Family Day on Saturdays where in most of the family status residents are also off during these days. It would also be better since most of the expats are on the Job sites and not opting to shop on this days.

3. To Bachelors- Please do make yourself presentable in going in malls, please read comment below:

ida2008 said on 29/07/2008

one of the security in city center said that the main reason why they don't let all this kind of people in is to avoid the bad smell and being dirty.even securities feel pity about this people but that's the order of their management, so they cannot do anything about this.... so bad.

- make sure to clean yourself and see to it you look pleasant before going to these places this is not a construction site, be considerate to other people.

4. To Mall Management- please make some dialouge with the local councils for these events "Family Day" please consider expats needs,they are also playing an important role in the development of the country. Suggest dress codes if necessary, these might help them to be aware that they should be presentable.

these are only my suggestion, we cannot please anyone. Racism / descrimination might be avoided if we can be considerate to others feelings.

would you like lot of shabbily dressed people coming to your mall or outlet?

wont u be scared that your actual shoppers,MAY BE, mostly families wouldnt be happy with lot of bachelors around?

how many are actual buyers in a shopping mall crowd?

i am an asian too, but the above factors cant be ignored for the growth of a brand or business. so business racism or whatever u call it, it has to be implemented at some places so that their business goes well. hope you know what tommy hilfiger told to oprah winfrey n how she asked him to get out of her studio.

we wont have any hatred against some races personally, but wwhen it comes to business, racism is practised widely. many pubs here too do it. do u think its only couples that enter in the "couples only nights" ?

its their business. so they adopt these 'techniks'

I dont have a problem with the labourers staring at me, they can do that as much as they wish till next year, it doesn't bother me at all, i just act and walk normal while they're staring. But what made me feel uncomfort is the verbal nastiness/harassment of some folks. And its not coming from these poor labourers, i swear!

It's not just the labourers who stare but the Qatari "shabab" crowd...the crowd that drove me out of Qatar. The whole lot of them cause women to be uncomfortable. Is "Family Day" collective punishment for a few bad apples? It seems so.

Recently back home in the UK I was questioned by a local about what I do blah blah. I explained how “family day” exists in a lovely, luxury, wonderful country called Qatar and the guy was speechless. I even explained how expats get so used to this lifestyle (only the egoist,

arrogant ones of course) that they don’t even question it. The guy was dumbfounded and so were dozens of others who I spoke to.

It’s laughable, funny, let’s make as much fun as possible as you expats in Doha don’t have to experience the racism so what should you care right?

The sort of language that is used such as “horrid people” “them” “Asians” etc shows that you’re a victim of such a society that breeds racism and hate.

In the west we get hounded by hateful and racist remarks that we are racist against Arabs which I have always disapproved of but in the Gulf (and this is not including real Arab countries where real Arab culture exists) we have not only Arab’s being racist but Westerners being so used the ill treatment of the sub-continent that it is normal to them.

The solution would be to build shopping centers that appeal to them (i.e: LULU, LAMSY, SAFEER & RAMEZ).

Who is “to them”? why not say "ASIANS" who are treated like dirt????? are they not good enough to shop where you do? Of course you’re probably living off oil money – with a comment like this you sound Qatari...Yes? Have you ever thought twice about the damn people building this twisted, irrational, racist, country?

You have no idea how many messages I get from people on this forum who are so happy that someone has a voice for these victims! Believe it or not!

Why not have a 'family' day at work as well. Qatari's and Europeans to work from Sunday through Tuesday Midday, then the rest of the people to work from Tuesday afternoon to Thursday. Then nobody will have a problem being told to stay home on Friday, as they will have Saturday all for themselves!!! Fair?

So the solution is to ban them from everywhere in Doha as everywhere you go they stare. Whether your in your car, hospitals, walking the street, going into your apartment where you see tons of them sitting on fences just starring there is no escaping it.

Don't these places have a right to "protect" themselves as well?

This topic has been aruged through in many other threads. I think Family Only Days is a necessary evil in Doha. I don't mean to start a big wave but people (read: single men) act differently in Doha. In other cities I've lived in, I've never seen the great number of young men just standing around in malls and starring. It is partially the companies fault (they don't provide any reasonable leisure-time facilities) and partially the cultures fault (separating men and women systematically). The single men (from the sub-contentient or wherever) may not be to blame but the malls have to protect themselves.

“Horrid people” – that’s a nice thing to call people. I guess you’re not one of these poor sods so lucky you will never get to experience the discrimination they get on a daily basis.

The problem is sad but true; the only place the “privileged” in Doha want to see these “horrid people” is at building sites working. Why not just lock them up the rest of the time so no one has to associate with them. They’re very own concentration camp in Doha – lucky them.

The sign is a great idea, but you see in Qatar they like to hide the fact that discrimination exists. Who cares about discrimination right when we have Louis Vuitton?? Feed them to the sharks!!!!

Oh and recreational facilities- yeah right like that is going to happen - they only just build this country after all, like they have a right to anything.

I have a 7 year old daughter who was grabed twice by one those so called bachelors, once at hayatt palaza and once at the mall, so i'm fine with that law. I know i'm generalizing here but life is not fair.

Why don't you tie up that 7 year old wild beast to a leach?

That way, you will know, where in the hell, she is at your arm reach, at all times.

Since you are the parents. It is your failure that you let loose your child in public places, like she was playing in a sand box.

This is about racism and not letting certain nationalities in the malls on “family day”.

Why do they not have signs saying “only westerner’s and Qatari bachelor’s allowed in the mall. People of other race are not to enter.”

The point is it is unfair and discriminating – if you want to keep bachelors out fine, but to pick and choose selected races – how is that in any way normal?

How can anyone think this is normal behaviour and acceptable? If you do, then you have been living in Qatar for too long.

By marhabtain• 13 years 4 months ago.

Do the hotels in Qatar allow hordes of bachaelors into their lobbies at weekends? NO. Why then should Malls which are places for shopping and not simply to ' hang out ' It is the responsibility of EMPLOYERS to provide recreational facilities for their staff. This responsibility is not limited to packing people into a big yellow bus and dumping them in the city okay!

This country breeds racism and for the people who say otherwise just look around you. Unfortunately people get used to living in a country where people are kicked out of malls because of the colour of their skin that it becomes the norm.

Flirting only exist in extremities because of this abnormal society where it is considered “evil” to so much look at a woman. Of course you will get flirting – it’s normal human behaviour.

First its “family day only” – what will come next?

City Centre Shopping Mall has recently instituted a policy of Family Day every single Friday. I live just opposite, and witnessed some fairly ugly scenes last Friday as groups of single men were confronted at the doors. If I had a young family with me here I would not be concerned about who they shopped with. I would be more concerned that they saw this violence, and this rascist and unfair behaviour. It is shameful that this discrimination is allowed to continue
