Guidelines are being followed
Guidelines are being followed during Haj pilgrimage. According to Saudi Arabia’s Hajj Ministry, 6000 people arrive in the holy city of Mecca every three hours. Sterilization takes place here after each group returns.
People from other countries including India are not allowed to perform Haj
At the same time, due to the Corona epidemic, Muslims from other countries including India were not allowed to perform Haj for the second consecutive year. In March last year, after the outbreak of the corona virus, pilgrims from India were not allowed to perform Haj and only about a thousand people already living in Saudi Arabia were selected for Haj. Under normal circumstances, about two million Muslims perform Hajj every year.
