The residents of Dubai have launched an informative campaign about UAE dress code for Muslims, urging visitors to wear decent clothes that respect the Islamic traditions during the holy month.
Organizers say the campaign aims to promote respect for the country’s culture among foreigners.
As part of the campaign, flyers are being passed to passengers arriving into the country or in malls.
Some supporters suggest imposing fines on those who flag the rules.
The UAE dress code campaign was first introduced in May 2012 on the online microblogging site Twitter.
It is meant to raise awareness about what locals consider appropriate dress and behavior.
The campaign was introduced as a rejection for western habits and clothes brought to UAE by millions of tourists to visit the UAE every year.
It came after a British woman was arrested in a Dubai mall for stripping down to a bikini three years ago following an argument where she was accused of not being respectful of the UAE culture.
Current UAE dress code campaign comes days ahead of the start of Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar.
Some foreigners also welcomed the initiative, suggesting flyers to also be handed out at entry points within the UAE.
