Saudi Arabia Adopts Measures to Ensure Pilgrims Perform Hajj without Discrimination

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah welcomes all pilgrims from all over the world without discrimination and aims to improve the quality of services, announced Deputy Minister Abdul Fattah Mashat.

Mashat welcomed Qatari pilgrims, saying the ministry has provided them with a practical solution to apply for Hajj through electronic platforms they can access from any location to complete their procedures before arriving to King Abdulaziz Airport in Jeddah.

Regarding the Qatari authorities’ blocking of websites that provide links to apply for Hajj, he said the ministry regularly monitors the sites and provides alternative platforms if they are blocked.

He asserted that all the services provided to the pilgrims are also available to Iranian pilgrims or any others, adding that they are undoubtedly welcome.

On the ministry’s role in preventing fake pilgrimage campaigns, Mashat stressed that one of the most important measures it has carried out is raising pilgrims’ awareness on such scams, whether they are inside or outside Saudi Arabia.

He emphasized that any campaign not included on the ministry’s website is fake. He urged all pilgrims to accurately check information and ensure they are among the campaigns registered electronically with the ministry.

He also called on them to refrain from posting messages and texts that promote such campaigns.

Mashat said pilgrims can clearly see all the registered campaigns on the ministry website, revealing that authorities busted a number of fake campaigns last year.
