Minister of Media to UNA: Message of Hajj 2018 is moderation and peace

Saudi Minister of Media Dr. Awwad bin Saleh Al-Awwad on Friday highlighted that Saudi Arabia's message for the Hajj of 2018 is that of moderation, tolerance, peace, and kinship.

In a statement to the Union of OIC News Agencies, the minister underlined media's increased attention in covering Hajj, not only by OIC member states but from non-Islamic countries as well.

During his visit to the media center in Jeddah, he stated that the Kingdom is hoping the world would see that Islam calls for moderation and peace through the coverage of Hajj 2018.

He called on pilgrims to devote themselves to their worship and to completing the fifth pillar of Islam with ease and away from controversy or politicization or preoccupation with anything else.

He further noted that the Kingdom has established several press centers to serve the media during the Hajj season, including two centers in Jeddah, a center in Mina, two centers in Arafat, and a center in Madinah, and that all centers are equipped with the necessary equipment to aid journalists in their missions.
