Fake 'qurbani' website worries Haj officials
The Haj House and the Central Haj Committee of India (CHCI) woke up to a major virtual fraud on Friday night as reports of a fake website offering qurbani (animal sacrifice ritual) service to pilgrims at 450 Saudi riyals started surfacing.
The CHCI acted fast and issued a memo declaring www.hajhouse.in/index_qurbani.php as fake and asked pilgrims to be cautious. CHCI Officials said that they were alerted by the consul general in Saudi Arabia Faiz Ahmad Kidwai and that there was no clear idea regarding the number of pilgrims duped. The TOI found that a company operating from Mehdipatnam had registered the website's domain name. A CHCI official requesting anonymity said, "The website claims to be managed by Islamic Development Bank (IDB) in Jeddah. The consul general brought this to our notice perhaps after being informed by the IDB." The IDB too issued a statement on Saturday denying any links to the website. "This fake website in order to mislead the public, has incorporated specific details from which is the official website of the IDB, Jeddah," it stated.
The IDB went on to state that it was not responsible for any qurbani bookings made on this site as "IDB, India does not undertake any activity to do with qurbani whatsoever".
The website has put up payment options through credit card and urges pilgrims to book their order in advance as prices could increase before Bakrid. According to the AP State Haj Committee (APSHC), only Al Rajhi Bank and Saudi Post are authorised to collect qurbani charges from pilgrims. An SHC official said that the sacrificing ritual will take place on October 26. and it is only then that they would know the magnitude of the problem
. "Qadim-ul-hujjaj (Haj servants) will be keeping an eye on the qurbani remittances. Last year the qurbani amount was 350 Saudi riyals. This year it is expected to be priced around 450 Saudi riyals, which is around Rs 4,500," an APSHC official said.
The website indicated that more than 31,000 people have visited it. CHCI officials said that they were exploring all legal options to check the degree and nature of the fraud.
Shakir Hussain, CEO, CHCI said, "We are going to check the legal status of the problem. However, we had clearly mentioned the process of making qurbani remittances to the pilgrims in the Haj Guide given to them."
Meanwhile, a total of 26 flights from the Hyderabad embarkation point carrying 7,967 pilgrims left for Jeddah with the last flight leaving at 10.20 am on Saturday. Of this figure, 1,486 are making the pilgrimage under the reserved category. There are 4,145 men, 3,822 women and 12 infants discharging their religious duties. Accommodation under the Green Category is being provided to 3,755 pilgrims and 3,697 will be staying in the Kingdom under the Azizia Category. Further, 515 have been awarded free accommodation in the rubat.
