Imam Fasiegh Adams responds
Following VOC’s coverage of recent concerns within the local umrah industry, we were alerted to two families, the Anthony’s and the Patel’s, who were left stranded only days before they were scheduled to perform the spiritual journey. While the Anthony’s have requested that their story not be told at this time, Naeem Patel says that he paid Umrah Connect International R60,000 to secure the booking for his wife, Luthfiyah, and their two children. But, was later informed that since their vaccination cards were not handed over with their passports their visas could not be issued. VOC reporter, Thakira Desai, recently sat down with the co-founder and spiritual leader of Umrah Connect International, Imam fasiegh Adams and here is what he had to say.
