LAHORE:

The Hajj Policy of 2010, in which fares have been raised by Rs6,000, has been challenged in the Lahore High Court (LHC).


The new Hajj policy also implies some restrictions. It states that pilgrims who offered Hajj during the past five years cannot go for Hajj this year.


The Hajj policy drew fire in the Senate, with the standing committee on religious affairs rejecting the policy. They demanded that the government should reduce Hajj fares to provide some relief to intending pilgrims.

Sohrab Khan | 10 years ago | Reply | Recommend Very well done. Hajj expenditure is more high comparison to the last year. In this fares and high expenditure poor muslims could not perform the hajj. Parlimentarian and especially Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousaf Raza Gillani took play in this and reduce the hajj expenditure. The person who challenged the same policy is a true muslim. I pray for his long life and his family. May Allah keep it up.
