RNA – Due to the fact that Qatar, with the help of several regional parties, including Turkey and Iran, succeeded in overcoming the blockade by Saudi Arabia and its allies, the House of Saud is outraged and is currently taking revenge against Qatari citizens.
The House of Saud is using the Hajj pilgrimage as a tool against Qatar by preventing Qatari Muslims from performing the divinely-ordained Hajj rituals for the second consecutive year.
The political actions of the Saudi regime disrupted the space between Rukn [Corner] and the Maqam [Station of Abraham] and the Muslims of Qatar were denied access to these two sacred sites and were deprived of performing the Hajj.
Saudi Arabia continues its vicious allegations by refusing to host Qatari Muslims and has prevented them from entering the Land of Revelation for the second consecutive year.
In response to Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee earlier expressed its readiness to serve the Qatari pilgrims and declared that this was a formal matter and no practical steps had been taken in this regard.
The 2017-2019 Qatar diplomatic crisis began in June 2017, when Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt, the Maldives, Mauritania, Senegal, Djibouti, the Comoros, Jordan, the Tobruk-based Libyan government, and the Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi-led Yemeni government severed diplomatic relations with Qatar and banned Qatari airplanes and ships from utilising their airspace and sea routes along with Saudi Arabia blocking the only land crossing.
The Saudi-led coalition cited Qatar’s alleged support for terrorism as the main reason for their actions, insisting that Qatar has violated a 2014 agreement with the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Saudi Arabia and other countries have criticized Al Jazeera and Qatar’s relations with Iran.
