Al Haramain Watch: Saudi Arabia Prevents Dozens of Yemeni Pilgrims from Entering Saudi Territories for Umra

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch”

has denied  the prohibition of dozens of Yemeni pilgrims from entering Saudi territory through the deposit port for the performance of Umrah. A Yemeni source said that the Saudi authorities have returned many residents and pilgrims, most of those stranded in the port stayed on buses. Some of them were staying in hotels in the area, others returned to Sayoun and some areas near the port. Some of the stranded people  live in difficult conditions. Pointing out that more than 72 buses on board carrying pilgrims and expatriates were not allowed to enter.

The source added that the continuation of this situation for a longer period may push many of the pilgrims to return from where they came from. The money they have taken is barely enough for them to perform Umrah and return, and the glands in the port, including women and children, most of them elderly, continue to be disastrous. Al Haramain Watch said that the Saudi government has no right to take decisions that violate the right of worship of all Muslims in all parts of the world.

Al Haramain Watch called on the administration of Riyadh to allow all Yemenis to enter for the performance of Umrah and not to involve Muslims in their political differences and use them in the ongoing war in Yemen.

The Commission repeated its call upon Islamic countries, institutions and governments to immediately intervene in the administration of the Islamic Holy Places in the Two Holy Mosques to ensure their neutralization after the failure of the Saudi authorities to ensure the neutrality of places of worship.

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.
