hows the situation ver there, any majalises taking place?

there are shia mosques, people can practice, but there are limits, you can't say certain things about the 3 caliphs, i believe ziyarat-e-ashura cannot be recited for this reason, also they shut the mosque quite early, around 10 pm during muharram, so that restricts your ability to do matam throughout the night and stuff. But in general it seems ok, much better than saudi arabia.

I went to Dubai one time. When I wanted to go back to Iran, I decided to do my pray at mosque at the airport. While I was praying, I noticed that one person was looking at me angrily. I think he found out that I'm Shia because of my turbah and my hands. I just did my pray and left soon. It was not secure if some people find out that you are Shia.

Do you think that type of anger toward the Shi'a is mainstream in Dubai?

It's because of the turbah. Their king is from a Sunni sect that doesn't fold their arms

The situation has detoriated quick since I came here about 8 yes ago .

Before everything was out in open,  no issues. Now people are scared they will lose jobs,  not get residency visa renewed ( or only 4 out of 5 family members get renewal and one child does not), will be labelled as Shia , will be immediately deported ( happens occasionally ), Shia chat is blocked ( so with horrible Internet speeds and bad VPN ) we are rarely able to post and just barely able to read posts.

There has been massive purges in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah , especially of active on community or working for govt/semi govt entity.

Dubai used to be more chill , but even now at major Shia aza khana RFID embedded ID cards are scanned and likely being placed in database.

Lebanese already purged ,especially big businessmen, all the Parichinar momineen supporting those oppressed people also purged at behest of Pakistan  ( Najistan) govt.

Sorry I could go on but is very depressing for families with kids.

Am planning on going to Canada as are many who can still get out .

Inshalhah the Saudi's will cause a Maelstrom which will suck the  GCC Into a deep morass, from which the pampered princelings cannot not escape and eventually get their just desserts, and the Zahoor will be ushered in with their demise.
