A well-coordinated transportation plan in place to facilitate Hajj pilgrims

Director General Hajj Dr. Sajid Yousafani says that an extensive, well-coordinated plan has been put in place to facilitate the pilgrims as Hajj season approaches. While speaking to the state media in Makkah, he requested the Pakistani pilgrims to stay back at least 30 minutes after offering prayers in the Haram.

”Pilgrims can offer Nawafil, recite Quran, or do Tawaaf for just half an hour after Jamaat prayers to allow the crowd to recede as people in large number from all over the world converge at Masjid-e-Haram during Hajj days.”

Dr. Sajid said that he himself supervised the clearance operation to assure hassle-free movement of the pilgrims. The pilgrims have shown satisfaction and contentment with the quality of services being offered, he said.
