Short-term hajj package is announced by ministry of religious affairs starting from next year.
Aneeq Ahmed, federal minister said that short-term package would be 17-20 days long. People can choose from this package or long-term package.
Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Hyderi chaired the meeting, who suggested the duration of short-term hajj 18 to 30 days. While the normal package offered 35 to 50 days’ stay along with accommodation. Transportation and food.
Cost of hajj increased due to devaluation of rupee. Pakistan received less application as compared to quota allocated for Pakistan. This is a good initiative by the ministry of religious to offer less day hajj package.
