Qatar has introduced a massive tax on alcohol, doubling the price after rolling out its ‘sin tax.’ It was introduced after the conservative Muslim Gulf state announced in its annual budget statement that it would introduce a levy on “health-damaging goods.” The issue of alcohol is likely to be a sensitive subject in the run-up to the World Cup in four years’ time. Qatar says the move is to wean people off addictive substances. Pray that this sin tax will bring awareness among the people against the use of liquor. Pray that the people will not fall prey to the pain stricken life and end up with shattered families (The Bible, Proverbs 23:29).

Qatar introduces 100 per cent ‘sin tax’, doubling price of alcohol overnight
