A misdemeanor court in Doha has ordered four women to pay QR5,000 ($1,373) each for beating a fellow guest at a wedding, Al Raya reported on Friday.

According to the newspaper, the women and the victim turned the event (which only had female guests) into a “wrestling ring,” after an argument between relatives escalated into a fistfight.

The newspaper did not specify when the incident took place, but stated that those involved in the altercation apparently used knives and forks on the tables and “anything they could get their hands on” to attack each other.

Coming to blows

Al Raya reports that the scuffle started when the victim complained about the presence of a relative of hers at the wedding.

She went up to her and asked her to leave, although they were both invited to the party. Offended by the request, the guest became angry and complained to her siblings about it.

They walked up to the victim and demanded that she be the one to leave the wedding. At this point, an argument broke out and escalated into a scuffle as they beat the victim, who fought back and reportedly threw knives at them.

At the end, the rest of the guests intervened to end the fight.

The victim filed an official complaint against the women, as she sustained several injuries from being attacked with the knives and forks.

The defendants have appealed the verdict, requesting that they be exonerated from the charges.

Thoughts?

Oh wow! Guest had witnessed the live show of WWE. Anyhow, why do they don’t allow her to leave?

“those involved in the altercation apparently used knives and forks on the tables and “anything they could get their hands on” to attack each other.”

I think this merits more than a fine. Assault should come with some jail time to give these women an opportunity to ponder their actions.

Why does this article say four women? Usually DN says, an Indian expatiate or an African expatriate committed so and so crime. Why can’t we know the nationality of these violent women who are a danger to society?

You want them to make up nationalities? Al Raya reported just as much.

Maybe they could do some research, you know, journalism…..

The point is we all know they are Qatari but DN won’t say it.

They could might as well have been Palestinians as many of them hold female only weddings in Qatar.

I think u don’t understand my comment. i did not call anyone ‘Animal’, intend to or will ever do. I am discipline enough not to do that. I only use the Novel ‘Animal Farm’: A fairy Story to describe the situation where some nationality are mention why some are not mention on the daily newspaper + Dohanews. However, i believe many reader understand the comment perfectly.

Asking what their nationality is, is racist? It’s obvious your first language is not English and you have issues wth non Arabs and those that don’t follow the same religion as you. Try to respect all humans.

Look up the word irony as well. Calling me racist and then using a racist insult against me. Don’t worry I’m not offended, I thought it was funny!

You mean Crusaders? So you are comparing Modern Qatar with life 1000 years ago…… Also don’t assume I agree with the Crusades – I don’t.

Anyhow, during this holy month turn your anger and hate into Love for your fellow humans regardless of Race, Religion or social standing, treat others as you want to be treated, you may well find it liberating. Peace out.

Luminary212: It would serve you well to do a little reading and educate yourself before embarrassing yourself by displaying your ignorance here. Animal Farm has been translated into Arabic, is a short, easy read & is very enlightening about how we divide ourselves into groups to the detriment of society. Ironically, that is exactly what you are doing here.

Besides “Arab” isn’t a color. There are Arabs in a wide range of “colors” 🙂

Most of these crime reports are translated from Court records. So if it mentions nationality it will be reported, if not it wont be. But I guess the journos can investigate. Since they didnt do it, its a good guess as to who they were.

Well it was a gender segregated wedding so that dramatically narrows it down.

All five of the should also be ordered to refund the bride. Weddings are super expensive, how selfish it is to ruin someone’s big day because you have issues with another wedding guest.

These ladies should have gotten some jail time.
