Govt to Send All 72,869 Applicants on Hajj Without Balloting

The Pakistani government has decided to send all 72,869 Hajj applicants without balloting, exceeding the regular quota of 44,190. This decision was made on the recommendation of the Religious Ministry and the direction of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. While some view this as a positive step towards inclusivity, others worry about the logistical challenges, especially amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has acknowledged that this decision will require additional resources. Nevertheless, the government’s decision to prioritize accessibility and inclusivity has been widely applauded.
