MWL Secretary General: Hajj ritual has no place for political slogans and sectarianism

Makkah, The Secretary General of Muslim World League (MWL), Chairman of the Board of Directors of the International Organization of Muslim Scholars, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, said that Hajj ritual is a worship that should be performed by Muslim, warning against any breach or diverting it from its religious objectives like raising political and partisan slogans and sectarianism.

Sheikh Dr. Al-Issa added that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has exploited its great potentials so that this ritual be performed in a spirit of faith and tranquility.

He noted that every Muslim knows that Hajj has a specific function in the religion limited to the performance of its rituals, and that any act contrary to that is a transgression of the teachings of Islam.
