The incident of sexual abuse of two teenage Iranian boys at the Jeddah airport by Saudi officials has created concerns among the devotees in Pakistan traveling to Mecca along with their children for Umrah pilgrimage.

The news about two Iranian children, who have sexually been abused at Jeddah airport by two Saudis, has become the talk of the town. The citizens, who are planning to go for Ummrah with their children, are now thinking about their decision. They are of the view that Saudis bitter attitude is not new for Pakistanis but this incident of sexual abuse has exposed Saudis’ ignorant behavior to the civilized world.       

It is worth mentioning here that a Saudi study says that about 23 per cent of Saudi Students are raped in Saudi Arabia, while up to 46 percent suffers from homosexuality.

Iranian government has already suspended flights to Saudi Arabia for the year-round Umrah pilgrimage following the incident.

This incident is likely to intensify tensions between the two countries, who are already involved in the war in Yemen. The teenage boys alleged last week that the officers abused them while conducting a security search at Jeddah airport.

Earlier this month Iran’s foreign ministry said that two Iranian teenage boys, aged 14 and 15, had been stopped at Jeddah airport by officials and subjected to “sexual abuse.”

The pair had flown to Jeddah in March for the ritual Umrah pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. Hassan Subhani Niya, a member of Iran’s National Security Committee, also told Iranian media there was no evidence the boys had been sexually abused.

Earlier, President Hassan Rouhani had asked the foreign ministry to investigate the matter “and prepare an inclusive report on the subject.”
According to Iranian media reports, while performing a body search on passengers Saudi officers allegedly took the teenagers away, citing suspicions, sounded off the alarm at the gate and subjected them to abuse.
The Iranian government said last week that Saudi officials had arrested the airport officers responsible for the act, but there has been no such confirmation from Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile on Saturday, a small group of demonstrators staged a protest outside the Saudi embassy in Tehran, demanding that Riyadh prosecute the errant airport officials. Demonstrators waved banners that called Saudi Arabia “the kingdom of terror” and labeled the newly-ascended King Salman a “war criminal.”
Iran and Saudi Arabia have a decades-old history of bitter ties.
Tensions have recently exacerbated over Saudi allegations of Iranian military support for anti-government Houthi rebels in Yemen, where Riyadh has also stepped in militarily.
