Dubious calls to "internationalize the Two Holy Mosques" are a result of hatred and political bankruptcy, and indicate an ignorance of the historical role of Saudi Arabia in serving the pilgrims and spreading the Islamic values and moderation, stated Bahrain's Minister of Information Ali al-Rumaihi.

Rumaihi, who is also the Chairman of Bahrain Institute for Political Development, said that Saudi efforts in maintaining the Two Holy Mosques and serving their pilgrims can only be denied by a fanatic or a person who does not want the best for this Islamic nation and its unity, cohesion and progress.

Speaking to Asharq Al-Awsat, the minister praised the great services provided by Saudi Arabia under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman in taking care of the pilgrims and ensuring they perform their religious duties in comfort and tranquility.

Rumaihi condemned any malicious calls to harm the Kingdom, or to reduce its history in the service of Islam and Muslims. He also denounced any attempt to politicize religious rites, or the internationalization of the Two Holy Mosques.

Rumaihi stressed that Saudi Arabia's comprehensive facilities and services for the benefit and comfort of pilgrims to the House of Allah and the Holy Mosque of His Holiness Prophet Mohammed are appreciated and cherished throughout the entire Islamic world.

He added that each year, millions of visitors can witness the expanding projects of the Mosques and the security, safety, medical, organizational and comprehensive services to ensure their comfort.

The Minister indicated that serving the pilgrims is an honor, adding that the value, status and sovereignty of Saudi Arabia are stronger than conspiracies and disputes, and the Kingdom will always remain a red line that can not be touched or crossed.
