Adhere to hajj rules, NACOMYO urges pilgrims

National Council of  Muslim Youth Organizations (NACOMYO) has urged pilgrims and prospective pilgrims throughout the world to adhere strictly to rules and regulations guiding hajj performance, just as they must also abide by instructions from hajj officials.

The appeal is coming on the heels of the stampede in Muna, Makkah during which about 800 pilgrims died while performing a cardinal rite of hajj.

While condoling with Federal and State governments, leadership of the Nigerian (Muslim) Ummah, the World Muslim League in Makkah and families of victims, NACOMYO opined that the incident was an act of God and urged the bereaved families to have solace in the fact that the pilgrims died in the course of fulfilling an obligation to their God.

The group however appealed to Saudi authorities to come up with further initiatives, fortify the existing arrangements in order to prevent a recurrence of the catastrophe.
