Ministry advises people not to pay money until Hajj Policy announced

ISLAMABAD: Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony has urged people to beware of fraudulent advertisements recruiting Khadmeen-e-Hajj.

Talking with APP, the ministry’s spokesman Muhammad Umar Butt said there were certain overseas employment promoters who were involved in fraudulent activities of hiring staffers for the services to pilgrims in the holy cities of Makkah and Madina.

He said people should not pay heed towards such advertisements as they had no authority for Khadmeen-e-Hajj recruitment.

Earlier, the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony had issued a public alert urging the intending pilgrims not to submit their hard-earned money to any private Hajj tour operator until the Hajj Policy 2022 was officially announced.

Saudi Arabia has allotted a quota of 81,132 pilgrims to Pakistan to perform Hajj this year.

Official sources said that in the coming days, the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony will begin accepting Hajj applications through designated branches of scheduled banks.

Hajj Policy 2022 will shortly reveal Hajj expenses, age limits, vaccines, and other terms and conditions.

According to the sources, balloting would be used to decide on proposals filed in the form of individuals or groups.

The distribution of Hajj quotas between public and private Hajj programmes will be divided 60:40, according to the statement.
