This call was made known by a prominent Indian Muslim Leader, A.P AbubackerMusliyar, who also double as a General-Secretary of the All -India Muslim Scholars Association.
“We have to pray to God, the creator of universe, to solve problems facing people all over the world to help them live in peace and stability. This should be our main prayer during this Hajj”, he stated.
He emphasized the role of Hajj in strengthening unity and solidarity among Muslims.
