Cabinet approves Hajj policy, 179,210 pilgrims to perform pilgrimage in 2020

The federal cabinet on Wednesday approved Hajj Policy 2020, allowing 179,210 pilgrims to perform the annual holy pilgrimage, reported Radio Pakistan.

Addressing a news conference alongside Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan, Minister for Religious Affairs Noorul Haq Qadri said up to 107,000 pilgrims will perform Hajj, while the remaining would perform the pilgrimage under private schemes.

Qadri said the Hajj package under the government scheme would cost Rs490,000 for pilgrims in the northern region, and Rs480,000 for those in the southern region.
The minister stated that the increase in the package was due to several factors an increase in fares of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and Saudi Airlines, depreciation of the Pakistani rupee, and for additional arrangements in Mina and Makkah.
