AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Secretary General of All India Muslim Personal Law Board said Saudi Arabia has handed some of the administrative affairs of Hajj to Israeli companies.
Speaking at the India Cultural-Islamic Center in New Delhi, he said he could not disclose any names but that he is certain about involvement of Israeli firms in Hajj.
Cooperation with the Zionist regime is a grave mistake because it is an illegal regime and murderer of hundreds of innocent Palestinian women and children, he said.
The official further criticized the rise in the costs of Hajj pilgrimage for Indian pilgrims, saying both the Saudi and Indian officials should be accountable for this.
This year, more than 175,000 Indian Muslims will take part in Hajj.
Hajj is an annual pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the holiest city in Islam.
It is regarded as one of the pillars of Islam and the largest act of mass pilgrimage in the world.
The holy pilgrimage is also a demonstration of Muslims’ unity and their submission to Allah.
Every able-bodied Muslim is obliged to perform the pilgrimage at least once in his or her lifetime.
