Conversion from Islam to another religion carries the death penalty in Qatar and Believers from a Muslim Background cannot openly practice their faith. Giving any impression that they might be Christians can have serious consequences. Expatriate Christians have relatively more freedom to practice their faith privately, if they do not evangelise Muslims. Outward symbols of faith, like crosses on churches, are illegal. There are several churches in Qatar that serve the large group of foreign workers, however, Believers from a Muslim Background are not allowed to attend. Churches are not allowed to use their own channels for importing Bibles anymore, but are forced to use a secular bookshop for importing.
