Time for Hajj registration extended till Mar 28

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT, Dhaka

The government has extended the registration deadline for pilgrims till March 28 for performing Hajj both under government and private management. The total number of people wanting to perform Hajj this year, under government and private management, is 1,27,198. Till Saturday evening, 81,108 had got themselves registered. The government extended this deadline for the third time yesterday.

About 46,090 pilgrims are yet to complete the registration process due to various complications. As of Saturday evening, 6,057 pilgrims completed their registration under the government arrangement, and 75,051 under private management, Syful Islam, director of the Ashkona Hajj Office, told this correspondent. “The first Hajj flight is likely to take off on July 4. The Hajj quota will be filled up within the extended period,” he said in reply to a query.

 Earlier, the government extended the deadline for registration of Hajj pilgrims for the second time by four days till March 22.

 Syful said: “The registration deadline for pre-registered pilgrims from serial number 22765, intending to perform Hajj under government management, has been extended till March 28.”

 The deadline for Hajj pilgrims under private management has also been extended till March 28 from March 21, he added.

 He further said the pilgrims were urged to submit their passports by March 27 for verification in due time.

 According to a Religious Ministry circular, pre-registered pilgrims with serial Nos. up to 22764 and who could not get registered for some reason, but want to perform Hajj this year, were urged to submit applications to the Director of Hajj Office or inform by e-mail to prp@hajj.gov.bd and morahajsection@gmail.com, or call 09602666707.

 A total of 1,27,198 Bangladeshis — 7,198 under government management and 1,20,000 under private management — are expected to perform Hajj this year.

 Around 1,82,000 pilgrims are on the waiting list under private management, Abdullah Al Naser, president of the Bangladesh Hajj Jatri and Haji Welfare Council, told this correspondent.

 “Most of the agency owners are worried as many pilgrims have registered their names without depositing the full amount of the package announced to perform Hajj,” he said.

 According to Naser, if middlemen or group leaders do not deposit the full amount before the Hajj flights as per the packages, the agency owners have to take the responsibility to send the pilgrims to perform Hajj. “This is the main reason for the delay in completing the registration process,” he added.

 According to sources, about 6,441 passports were submitted to the Hajj office for verification under government management, and 88,802  under private management.
