Qatar Says Saudi Rulers Politicizing HajjQatar Says Saudi Rulers Politicizing Hajj

Qatar has accused Saudi Arabia of politicizing the hajj, claiming Riyadh has imposed restrictions on Qatari nationals planning to travel to Mecca for the annual Muslim pilgrimage.

Qatar's National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) said on Saturday that Qatari citizens have been told they can only enter Saudi Arabia through two airports, and that they must travel via Doha to be allowed in, Al Jazeera reported.

This would be challenging for Qataris who do not live in Doha, such as those studying abroad.
