UAE tells pilgrims to avoid unauthorised Haj tour operators

Muslims in the UAE have been warned by the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Awqaf against contracting with unaccredited Haj operating missions for their safety and convenience, Khaleej Times has reported. "Those who contract with a Haj tour operator from outside the country shall be fully responsible for all the services to be rendered to them; we cannot guarantee any," said the executive director of the authority, and head of the UAE official Haj mission, Mohammed Obaid Al Mazrouie.
