According to Rasa, Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi called on the Saudi government to respect Iraqi Hajj pilgrims noting, “we have heard many criticisms against the Saudi government by many Iraqi pilgrims due to Saudi Arabia’s sabotage against Iraqi pilgrims entering Saudi Arabia by land or air as well as their unreasonable and inappropriate inspections under the pretext of having brought certain banned books and brochures into the country.”

Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi went on to highlight, “government should not allow Wahhabis and extremists to interfere in the Hajj and pilgrims’ affairs.”
