Acting Ameer expresses concern as 5 thousand pilgrim’s Hajj becomes uncertain due to government’s corruption and mismanagement
Tuesday, 01 September 2015
Acting Ameer of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, Maqbul Ahmed has issued the following statement on 31st August, 2015 expressing deep concern as the Hajj of this year has become uncertain for 5 thousand pilgrims though they had paid due amount of money earlier.
“Hajj is a mandatory ritual. If the pilgrims are not able to perform Hajj even after paying due amount of money, this is certainly a failure of the government. Such a failure is completely unforgivable.
The Hajj of 5 thousand pilgrims has become uncertain due to severe corruption of the officials of the Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Hajj offices. Several media has published news about the unlawful distribution and sharing of money of the Hajj officials. Though such a corruption and forgery centering a ritual is unexpected however we are experiencing such shameful misdeed here in Bangladesh.
The people, who had paid money for Hajj, are highly inclined to perform Hajj. If they are not able to do so due to corruption and mismanagement of the government, it would be shocking and heartbreaking reality for them.
I am urging the government to be aware of their religious responsibility and to take effective measures to ensure the Hajj of this year for those pilgrims who had already paid due amount of money.”
