Important Announcement

UK Law Enforcement Authorities are taking the issue of malpractice and exploitation extremely seriously. If, you have been a victim of Hajj/ Umrah scam/ exploitation/ malpractice by your tour and travel operator, don’t suffer in silence. Send your complaint to us. We can help you to get it investigated by UK law enforcement authorities.

Councillor Barbara Dring, Chair of Birmingham City Council’s Licensing and Public Protection Committee, assured the Muslim community by saying that: “Our Trading Standards team has led the way nationally on cracking down on unscrupulous Hajj tour operators, and they are here to protect Hajj pilgrims before, during and after their pilgrimage.

“Birmingham City Council has successfully prosecuted such operators for a number of years, and we are finding more operators like these who are trading nationally through the internet or advertising.

“I hope this case reinforces our message that we will continue to investigate and prosecute rogue traders exploiting pilgrims going to Mecca. We want pilgrims to know that we take their concerns seriously, understand their problems and will work with our partners to tackle this area of criminality.”
