The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has once again warmed Nigerian pilgrims against engaging in political activities in Saudi Arabia.

A statement signed by Fatima Sanda Usara, Head, Public Affairs, NAHCON, and issued to journalists on Thursday, called on the pilgrims to remember that displaying banners or pamphlets with political undertones whether on Muna tents, buses or pilgrims’ accommodations is not allowed.

“In addition, pilgrims are cautioned to desist from joining any group or organisation from any part of the world that intends to hold political/religious demonstrations or campaigns.

“Only Islamic literature is to be carried along,” the statement said and called on Islamic scholars to guide pilgrims elaborately on the matter.

NAHCON advised Nigerian pilgrims to follow instructions of their respective pilgrims welfare boards or Tour Operator Companies, as the case may be, in their own interest, admonishing them to abide by rules and regulations of Saudi Arabia, especially on crowd control.
