JEDDAH: The Kingdom has reiterated that attempts to politicize Haj will not be tolerated and that demonstrations will be prevented to ensure peace during the pilgrimage.
Col. Othman Al-Muhraj, director for public security, said that carrying out processions from any of the Haj sites is strictly prohibited.
“Anybody trying to create trouble will not be able to achieve their goals during Haj,” he said during a press conference, following the preparatory meeting of the Directorate General of the Public Security in Jeddah.
Al-Muhraj said that adequate security arrangements have been made for various stages of Haj to make it ideal.
“I want to tell pilgrims that we have received orders from our leadership and our country to serve you. We, as security personnel, are here to serve you,” he said.
