KUALA LUMPUR, 13 Jun (Bernama) -- Malaysia masih menunggu surat berhubung

kuota jemaah haji tahun ini daripada kerajaan Arab Saudi, kata Menteri di

Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom.

Beliau berharap kuota itu dapat dikekalkan pada 28,000 jemaah seperti tahun

lepas kerana pada masa ini, kira-kira sejuta umat Islam Malaysia berada dalam

senarai menunggu untuk menunaikan rukun Islam kelima itu.

"Namun, kita amat memahami kerajaan Arab Saudi mahu memberikan keselesaan

dan perkhidmatan terbaik untuk jemaah haji. Dalam masa yang sama di Makkah, ada

kerja menambah baik melibatkan pembinaan...kawasan tawaf dikecilkan ketika kerja

pembinaan ini bagi memberi keselesaan kepada jemaah.

"Kami dapat tahu negara jiran seperti Indonesia, kuota hajinya

dikurangkan...kalau terlampau ramai, mungkin akan menghadapi kesukaran untuk

menunaikan ibadah haji. Apapun kami tunggu surat kerajaan Arab Saudi dan

pertimbangkan sebaik mungkin langkah selepas itu," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas menyampaikan Anugerah

Kecemerlangan Akademik Pelajar Baitulmal Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan

(MAIWP) di Kompleks Pusat Islam di sini, hari ini.

JAMIL KHIR-HAJI 2 KUALA LUMPUR

Turut hadir Pengarah Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan Datuk Che Mat

Che Ali dan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif MAIWP Zainal Abidin Jaffar. Seramai 510

pelajar cemerlang menerima bantuan kewangan berjumlah RM141,550.

Semalam, kerajaan Arab Saudi dilapor akan memotong kuota jemaah haji

Indonesia kira-kira 42,000 orang pada musim haji tahun ini berikutan terbatasnya

ruang ibadah di tanah suci itu kerana projek mega memperluaskan Masjidil Haram

di Makkah dan Masjid Nabawi di Madinah.

Jamil Khir berkata bagi kuota haji tahun ini, kerajaan akan memberi

keutamaan kepada jemaah berumur lebih 70 tahun.

"Kami juga akan meneliti rayuan daripada jemaah yang mempunyai sebab yang

perlu kami beri kelonggaran seperti mereka yang mahu menemani saudara orang

kurang upaya menunaikan haji," katanya.

Ditanya mengenai laporan akhbar berhubung 22 wanita dihukum sebat atas

kesalahan syariah di Johor, beliau meminta rakyat tidak mensensasikan isu itu.

JAMIL KHIR-HAJI 3 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

Beliau berkata mereka perlu membezakan hukuman sebat dalam undang-undang

sivil dan syariah dalam menentukan pandangan mereka terhadap isu itu.

"Sebat dalam syariah ini amat berbeza dengan sivil...ia beza amat jauh

dengan sebat syariah antaranya sebat syariah ini tidak melukakan. Bukan sahaja

Johor, negeri lain begitu juga, tidak perlulah kita sensasikan isu ini,"

katanya.

Kesemua wanita itu adalah antara 39 pesalah syariah yang dihukum enam

sebatan bagi kesalahan sumbang mahram dan persetubuhan luar nikah di Johor sejak

dua bulan lepas.
