Saudi Arabia: Hajj application for Muslim pilgrims asks ‘are you Shia?’

Muslims wishing to perform the Hajj pilgrimage in 2015 will have to declare whether they are Shia or Sunni on the application forms.

Hajj is an annual pilgrimage performed once a year in the Saudi city of Mecca by Muslims worldwide. It is mandatory for all Muslims to perform Hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam, at least once in their lifetime, provided they are financially and physically able to do it.

Government officials in Pakistan confirmed the reports and said, reported The Express Tribune: “Saudi Arabia will not entertain any Hajj application from aspirants that fail to specify whether the applicant is a Shia or a Sunni”…

No doubt related to Saudi Arabia’s on-going problems with Iran.

    Canada’s CIC should take inspiration from this. Sunni or Shia? Sorry. Go somewhere else.

    But exceptional cases may have the right to enter as long as they recite the unShahada, which would go something like – “there is god but Dog, and Muhammed was a murderous loon.” The unShahada would of course be binding and irrevocable.
