Duterte offers P15M to fund Hajj pilgrimage for Filipino Muslims

President Rodrigo Duterte offered at least P15 million to Filipino Muslims who would like to embark on a pilgrimage to the holy place of Mecca in Saudi Arabia next year.

This, he said, is part of his plans in investing for peace.

“Let us invest on peace. Gumastos ka. Hindi mo binibili dito. Tinutulungan mo lang ang kapwa mo Pilipino na ang relihiyon Islam. Let us invest on peace,” Duterte said in an Eid’l Fitr celebration in Davao City.

Duterte added that the government will consider shouldering the trips by ‘tribes’ starting with the major Muslim tribes.

The President is aware on the significance of Hajj, a pilgrimage to the holy place of Mecca, which is considered a religious duty for Muslims.

“Hindi naman ‘yan pupunta doon magpa-picture kung saan-saan. Pagpunta lang ‘yan doon sa Mecca to fulfill a religious mandate. After that mag-uwi na man ‘yan,” he said.

Duterte then joked about having a stopover in Dubai to shop.

The President made his offer after defending Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council Chairman Ed Del Rosario.

The Commission on Audit called out the agency for releasing funds to National Commission on Muslim Filipinos.
