Saudi Arabia rejects increasing Haj quotas
- Saudi Arabia: Thursday, September 20 - 2012 at 10:57
Local media reports have said Saudi Arabia has rejected requests by 40 countries to increase their Haj quota this year because of development projects now under way in the two holy cities of Makkah and Madinah, AFP has reported. "The ministry has apologised to all countries which had asked to increase the number of their pilgrims this year... [because of] the giant development projects in Makkah and Madinah which make it difficult to accommodate more numbers," Haj minister, Bandar Al Hajjar, was quoted as saying. According to the quota system, every Muslim country has a Haj quota of 1,000 pilgrims per million inhabitants.
