Drinking /Eating etc during Ramadan will land you in JAIL

 Asian arrested for drinking in public during fasting hours

Kuwait: The first day of Ramadan also witnessed the first case of drinking in public during the day time, said security sources. Case papers indicate that a police patrol saw an Asian drinking water from a bottle during the day. On asking him why he was not fasting, he said that his sect had not yet started fasting, an excuse which police had not accepted and the man was arrested. Notably, according to Kuwaiti laws, anybody caught drinking or eating in public during fasting hours is detained until after the Eid.
