Govt extends deadline for Hajj registration to April 23

The government on Monday extended the deadline for this year’s Hajj registration to April 23.
Religious Affairs Minister Motiur Rahman made the announcement of the time extension after a meeting with Haab at his residence in Dhaka this afternoon.

Earlier in the day, Hajj Agencies Association of Bangladesh (Haab), the private organisation that arranges Hajj for pilgrims suspended the registration for this year’s Hajj demanding more time.
On Sunday, the Religious Affairs ministry sources said the registration process would be ended at 5:00pm on Monday.

Emerging from the meeting, Haab President Ibrahim Bahar told media that they are satisfied with the decision of the government in this connection.

This year, a total of 1, 17,758 people will register their names under private management for performing hajj in Saudi Arabia. Some 1,118 hajj agencies are working to reach the target.
