Indonesian Minister of Religious Affairs Fachrul Razi at a press conference in Jakarta on Tuesday canceled the departure of Hajj pilgrims for this year.
He said, “The government has decided to cancel the Hajj 2020 because the Saudi authorities have not provided certainty.”
The Minister explained that this decision had been taken after careful consideration, particularly with regard to health problems.
He added that the global pandemic has affected the social aspects of religious worship, which is why the ministry had formed a Hajj 2020 crisis center early on.
