Al Haramain Watch: The Saudi Authorities Prevent the Reception of the Egyptian Supervisory Committees

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch”  said that the Saudi authorities have banned the establishment of an office to receive the Umrah supervision committees sent by Egypt to inspect the places of residence of Egyptian pilgrimsIt is noted that there are more than 310 thousand Egyptian pilgrims in the Holy Land will find no one to receive their complaint.

According to an official at the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism, “It is usual for Egyptian supervision committees to go to Saudi Arabia at the beginning of the Umrah season and also during the pilgrimage season to inspect the housing of pilgrims and hotels there, as well as to solve the problems of pilgrims, and receive complaints from pilgrims about the lack of any services agreed upon with these companies, where they are checking and verify the matching services with the programs of those companies.’’  Without supervision committees in Saudi Arabia, it is likely that corporate irregularities will increase, especially in the holy month of Ramadan, due to overcrowding in the areas of Mecca and Medina, the official said.

Al Haramain Watch confirmed the right of the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism to send the supervision and follow-up committees to the services provided to its citizens in the Saudi territories during the Umrah or pilgrimage. The Commission called for the Saudi authorities to reverse the decision to ban these committees and to involve Islamic institutions and governments in managing the holy places in Saudi Arabia, in order to neglect and shorten the current administration in managing these places.

 

Al Haramain Watch aims to ensure that Saudi Arabia manages the two holy mosques and Islamic sites in a proper manner that preserves the past and the present image of Islam. The commission will apply this aim by advising Riyadh through an Islamic advisory board, engaging Muslim countries in managing the holy rituals, and stopping the obliteration of Islamic identity in Mecca and Medina, which is carried out by Saudi Arabia through the unlimited urban expansion that destroyed many of these sites and eliminated the Islamic presence in them.  The commission will also prevent the Saudi Arabia singling out the decision over the holy rituals, which may affect the safety of pilgrims and Umrah.  It also aims to prevent the unconvincing closure of rituals such as visiting dignitaries or celebrities or guests of Saudi Arabia. In addition, it will monitor any violation of Saudi Arabia to any pilgrim during his visit to the holy sites. Finally, it will ensure a fair distribution of Hajj and Umrah quotas on Muslim countries without any favouritism or mediation.

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch” is a global organization that monitors the ways and means of Saudi Arabia’s administration of the holy sites in Mecca and Medina, especially the Haramain, including the Islamic historical sites in the Kingdom. The Commission’s work is based on an Islamic reference, and is keen on the interests of Muslims from the ocean to the Gulf and all areas of Islamic presence.
