MINISTER in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Idris Ahmad wants an investigation by the authorities concerned on the case of the nearly 400 prospective haj pilgrims who were stranded at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), believed to have been cheated by a travel agency.
In a statement today, he expressed disappointment over the incident, saying that it concerned a matter that involves the pillars of Islam which should be taken seriously by all Muslims, including agencies that managed the pilgrims.
He said if there is any element of fraud involved, the party concerned should be brought to justice and penalised as a lesson to others.,
About 380 prospective haj pilgrims were stranded at the KLIA early today, believed to have been cheated by a travel agency.
The group, who was gathered at level 5 of the KLIA departure hall, is said to have been issued the furada or private haj visa to perform their pilgrimage without going through Lembaga Tabung Haji (TH).
The furada visa is a private visa reportedly issued by Saudi Arabia, without involving the quota allocated to TH.
Following the incident, Idris reiterated the need for Muslims to be vigilant and careful, and to seek advice from TH before getting the services of outside agencies to perform the pilgrimage. – Bernama, July 8, 2022.
