Pakistan Commends Saudi Arabia for Enabling its Citizens to Perform the Hajj

RIYADH: Chaudhry Salik Hussain, Pakistan’s Minister of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony, has thanked Saudi Arabia for the outstanding services and amenities offered to Pakistani pilgrims participating in the Hajj this year.

According to the Saudi Press Agency, Minister Hussain made these comments in a statement while in Madinah, where he is currently overseeing Hajj preparations for Pakistani pilgrims.

Pakistan has allotted 179,210 pilgrims for the Hajj this year; 63,805 of them will travel through the government programme, with the remaining pilgrims using private tour operators. The Hajj is anticipated to take place this year on June 14–19.

Arriving in Madinah since May 9, when pre-Hajj flight operations began, are pilgrims from Pakistan. So far, more than 20,000 pilgrims from Pakistan have come to Madinah through the official programme.

The Makkah Route Initiative, which mirrored the programme already in place at Islamabad International Airport, was introduced at Karachi International Airport, and for that the Pakistani official expressed special gratitude to the Saudi leadership.

In the upcoming year, Hussain expressed confidence that the initiative would be expanded to include Lahore Airport.
