Awqaf Ministry: Saudi authorities continue to bar Syrians from performing Hajj for 7th year

Damascus, SANA – Ministry of Awqaf (Religious Endowments) asserted that the Saudi authorities continue to deprive Syrian citizens from the right to perform Hajj for the seventh year in a row.

In a statement on Thursday, the Ministry said that the requirement to perform pilgrimage is not ensured as this duty is being politicized by the Saudi authorities despite the Ministry’s repeated contacts with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Saudi Ministry of Hajj in this regard via the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry.

The Ministry also dismissed the political and financial exploitation practiced by the Saudi authorities along with some individuals through some tourism offices in Lebanon as they are investing one of the great pillars of Islam through the so-called “Syrian High Hajj Committee” which is affiliated to the enemies of the homeland
