Hajj helping Islamic World political atmosphere to develop

Tehran, May 5, IRNA - Iran’s Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Abbas Salehi hailed especial position of Hajj, saying it has one of the best positions for developing political atmosphere in the Islamic World.

Referring to good measures which have so far been taken by Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization in scientific communities and in the Islamic World, Salehi said Hajj has valuable and important position in religious culture and interaction among Islamic World.

Iran stopped sending pilgrims to the annual Hajj rituals, due to the Saudis' mishandling of a human tragedy in Mena (September 2015) that killed thousands of Muslims, including over 460 Iranians, and also due to Saudis' failure to guarantee safety of the Iranian pilgrims.
