The Pakistan government has directed the suspension of pilgrims’ registration for Hajj 2021. According to details, the Ministry of Religious Affairs has issued a special message for Pakistanis wishing to perform Hajj this year not to book Hajj for the time being.
According to the Ministry of Religious Affairs, the Saudi government has not yet issued a quota for Hajj 2021 to any country. Hajj Policy 2021 will be announced only after the Saudi government gives Hajj quota to Pakistan. After getting permission for Hajj, the final list of registered and quota holder Hajj companies will be posted on the website by the Ministry of Religious Affairs. After that, those who want to perform Hajj should book Hajj.
The Ministry of Religious Affairs has clarified that booking of Hajj by any person or company before the official announcement will be considered illegal. On the other hand, the Federal Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Khan has said that the Chinese vaccine has been declared 73% effective by the American Medical Association, so the pilgrims will not be deprived of Hajj this year due to the Chinese vaccine.
He said that the government has contacted Saudi Arabia in this regard and will soon bring good news to the people. Ali Mohammad Khan said that 3.2 million people got one dose of vaccine and 1.5 million people got the full vaccine. We are trying to complete the corona vaccination of the entire population before three years. He said that those who do not have identity cards will also be vaccinated against corona. The Ministry of Health will look into the matter. Ali Mohammad Khan said that they are in touch with Saudi Arabia over the Chinese vaccine not being allowed for Hajj. None of our pilgrims will miss the Hajj because of the Chinese vaccine.
