Leader’s message to Hajj to be released

TEHRAN, Sep. 05 (MNA) – Ayatollah Khamenei’s message to Muslim pilgrims participating in this year’s Hajj ceremonies is to be released in few hours.

Social accounts of office of the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei has announced that on the occasion of Hajj season, an important message by the Leader to Muslim brothers and sisters attending Hajj rituals will be published today and in few hours.

Leader’s message to Hajj rituals was usually issued to ceremony of ‘Renouncing Unbelievers’ initiated and mainly held by Iranian pilgrims, but this year, Saudi regime did not allow Iranian Muslims participate in the Islamic rituals. During last year ceremonies in September 2015, about 5000 pilgrims were killed in a stampede tragedy in Mina which was caused by misconduct of the rituals by Saudi forces. With about 500 Iranians among martyrs, Iranian nation has so far been angry at Saudis.

After execution of a Shia cleric by Saudi rulers, some Iranians stormed Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran which was later used as a pretext for Riyadh to cut its diplomatic ties with Tehran and has so far refused to cooperate with Iran to make Hajj rituals possible for Iranians.

While Riyadh has refused to accept formation of an international fact-finding committee on Mina and Masjed ul-Haram incidents and has not cooperated with Iranian officials to pave the way for Iranian pilgrims, Saudis accuse Iran of being responsible for ban on Iranian pilgrims.
