Saudi Arabia Crackdown in Ramadan with 4000 arrested. Saudi Arabia has taken decisive action to maintain order and security during Ramadan, with over 4,000 individuals arrested for disruptive behavior within the revered grounds of the Grand Mosque. In a parallel effort to safeguard pilgrims, authorities have uncovered and shut down 35 fraudulent companies peddling fake Umrah trip packages to unsuspecting foreigners.

These measures, spearheaded by the Ministry of Interior and the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques Authority, underscore the kingdom’s commitment to ensuring a serene and secure environment for worshippers.

As part of efforts to ease congestion during the peak pilgrimage season, the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has advised worshippers to utilize hotel prayer rooms instead of adding to the crowds at the Grand Mosque, especially during the last ten days of Ramadan.

Furthermore, to streamline the flow of pilgrims, the Saudi government has implemented a regulation prohibiting individuals from performing Umrah more than once during the holy month. These proactive steps aim to enhance the spiritual journey for all those undertaking the sacred pilgrimage to Mecca.
