Stakeholders in the Hajj and Umrah industry have come up with a whitepaper advising Saudi Arabia on how to organize this year’s annual pilgrimage in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The global leaders offered various opinion on Hajj 2020 under the platform of the World Hajj and Umrah Convention (WHUC), and have already submitted their position to the authorities in Saudi Arabia, says Muhsin Tutla, the chairman of WHUC in a statement made available to INDEPENDENT HAJJ REPORTERS on Thursday.
Tutla said “the World Hajj and Umrah Care Foundation (WHUC Foundation) and Hajj People, join in understanding the challenges that Saudi Arabia faces in presenting the Hajj this year by contributing their expertise, developing a body of knowledge in conjunction with Hajj Missions, private sector, pandemic and health experts, pilgrims and other professionals” to come up with the whitepaper.
Under the title “Principles of Organising Hajj Under Pandemic Conditions” the report, documents the views of more than 25 government Hajj Missions, who are responsible for the welfare of approximately 890,000 international pilgrims”.
He also said “the survey and study findings shared with us provide rationale, very useful information, analysis and policy recommendation. The published survey findings provide readers, researchers and policy makers the opportunity to review the measures Hajj Missions are willing to adopt or not adopt, their status in readiness to perform Hajj under pandemic conditions, feasibility and the contingencies in consideration”.
