"The issue regarding the Hajj pilgrimage depends on the decision to be adopted by the Hajj Ministry of Saudi Arabia," Chairman of the State Committee for Work with Religious Organizations Mubariz Gurbanli said in an interview with APA.
"Saudi Arabia has declared a quarantine regime regarding the current situation. Religious rites have been suspended in holy Mecca. Rites are not executed not only in the Islam world, but also in catholic, orthodox centers, all holy shrines, and temples. Mass pray of people in Azerbaijan and several Muslim countries have also been suspended. It is due to necessity. As has been noted in the statement of the Caucasian Muslims Office, the issue regarding the Hajj pilgrimage depends on the decision to be adopted by the Hajj Ministry of Saudi Arabia," said Mr. Gurbanli while answering APA's question "Although document acceptance regarding Hajj pilgrimage, some procedures, which have to be done before the pilgrimage, have been suspended this year. What do you think, Hajj pilgrimage will be held or it should be postponed this year?".
