Ministry summons seven Hajj agencies over fraud allegations
The Ministry of Religious Affairs has summoned seven Hajj agencies on charges of conducting several irregularities and deceiving clients. The ministry issued a letter on January 17 asking representatives from the seven agencies to appear before a probe committee on Tuesday. Mohammad Anwar Hossain, senior information officer at the ministry confirmed the matter. The seven agencies are Kashem Tours and Travels, ASA Aviation, MCO Travels and Tours, Masum Air Travels, Sadman Travels, M/S Lailatul Qadr Tours and Travels and K Kalam Travels and Tour. According to ministry sources, a number of Hajj pilgrims filed written complaints of fraud and irregularities against several agencies in 2017. A hearing on these complaints is scheduled to be held at the auditorium in the Ministry of Religious Affairs on Tuesday where all the complainants, Information Technology (IT) representatives and representatives from different hajj agencies have been asked to attend. Some 127,198 pilgrims went to Saudi Arabia last year to perform Hajj. Of them, only 23,000 pilgrims went under government supervision while the rest went through the arrangement of private hajj agencies. A large number of pilgrims have complained that the some private agencies ceased to communicated once their clients (pilgrims) arrived at Saudi Arabia.
