Al Haramain Watch Received 3,400 Complaints from Pilgrims of Different Nationalities since the Pilgrims Began Arriving in Saudi Arabia

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch”  received about 3,400 complaints from Muslim pilgrims from around the world and pilgrims whose visas were denied and were banned from the Hajj for political reasons since the beginning of the Hajj 2019 season. Many of them complained about their refusal of the visa for political reasons, and many complained about the infrastructure in Hajj and hygiene and security systems and safety and inadequate hotels and rooms for pilgrims and many pilgrims also complained about the treatment of Saudi security degrading with them.

One Mauritanian Muslim said in his complaint to the commission that he had applied for a visa in Paris and that he met all the conditions. The visa was not granted because he is a member of the opposition party in his country of origin, and the government in his country of origin has strong relations with the Saudi administration. Another person from Algeria said in his complaint, “The trip to Saudi territory was easy until we got to the accommodation, since the hotel is not suitable for human use at all and we could not sleep or enter it and we kept sleeping on ground outside and asked for the intervention of everyone. Moreover, here is a clear negligence and negligence on the part of the hajj administration until delegates from the Algerian government intervened and the issue is resolved.’’

 A Palestinian of Syria in Lebanon said, “I intended to do Hajj this year, but I was denied with many Palestinians because the Saudi government does not recognize us, but I called on God to accept my Hajj from here because I did my best to go to the Hajj and was not granted a visa.”

The Commission stressed that the time has come to find a comprehensive Islamic administration composed of Islamic institutions and countries to manage the holy places in Saudi Arabia after the failure of the current administration to ensure that such errors are not repeated and attention to infrastructure and ensure that the pilgrimage is not affected by political differences between countries and not uniquely Saudi Arabia to take decisions concerning Islamic world.

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.
