Swine Flu threat looms large over Haj pilgrimage

Mangalore Today News Network

hajKUWAIT : So far only 2,000 Kuwaitis and Kuwaitis living elsewhere have registered for a Haj tour despite the Haj quota for Kuwait being more than 13000. According to the Ministry of Endowment, the govenment has recognised 65 tour operators for Haj tours. It is believed that the Swine Flu threat has reduced the number of prospective Haj pilgrims.

Reports have also indicated that several Gulf residents are averse to taking the Swine Flu vaccine which is mandatory for the Haj pilgrims, on the grounds that they cause dangerous side affects.
