Senator Muhammad Talha Mahmood, the Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, has declared that all pilgrims must undergo Hajj training, which is now compulsory.
Those without the necessary training certificate will be prohibited from traveling abroad for Hajj. The primary goal of the training is to ensure that pilgrims are well-informed about Saudi Arabia’s local rules and regulations, allowing them to properly perform the Hajj rituals.
The minister emphasized the significance of self-control and proper conduct during the pilgrimage. Furthermore, he expressed apprehension about the quality of medicines previously given to pilgrims and gathered samples for further testing in a laboratory.
