The National Hajj Council says until Muslims in the country learn to change their attitudes, especially towards the Hajj Council, the problems associated with Hajj, they will continue to persist.

A total of 1772 pilgrims from Ghana are presently in Mecca to participate in this year's Hajj.

Some 490 people were however unable to fulfill their obligations, following a series of problems associated with the organization.

At a press conference held on Friday, the Hajj Council said it does not want to blame any particular institution for the inability of the council to airlift all the pilgrims, due to a myriad of problems.

The Council also said there was no government interference whatsoever, as has been rumored in sections of the public.

In an interview with Ghananewstoday, the Spokesperson of the Hajj Council, Alhaji Mumuni Suleiman, said the Muslims must learn to trust the Hajj Council if the pilgrimage will be successful in subsequent years.
