Ministry urges people to be cautious of fake advertisements recruiting for Khadmeen-e-Hajj

The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony has asked people to be cautious of the false advertisements recruiting Khadmeen-e-Hajj.

The spokesman of the Ministry, Muhammad Umar Butt informed that there were overseas employment promoters that are involved in fraudulent activities. They are doing so by ‘hiring’ staffers for the service of pilgrims in the cities of Madina and Makkah for four months on specific terms and conditions.

Butt urged people to not pay attention to such advertisements, as they do not have authority over Khadmeen-e-Hajj recruitment. He said that it is the duty of the Overseas Employment Corporation and Bureau of Immigration to take strict against such scammers. However, due to the number of complaints registered on the online complaint cell of the religious affairs ministry, this statement was being issued to caution them.

The spokesman also pointed out that a promoter named ‘Iqra Manpower’ recruited Khadmeen-e-Hajj and told them to go through a medical process with a specific laboratory in the garrison city. He said that with this, they were trying to mint money in the name of expensive medical procedures.

Prior to this, the Ministry also issued a public alert, urging pilgrims to not submit their money to any private Hajj tour operator until the Hajj Policy 2022 was officially announced. It was noted that some operators were garnering money from intending pilgrims but had not authorized any agent to collect Hajj applications and money on behalf of the ministry.
