“We demand more time for the registration process,” Ibrahim Bahar, president of Hajj Agencies Association of Bangladesh (Haab), told The Daily Star.
“We also demand the government to take necessary steps to stop ‘irregularities’ in the process,” he added.
Earlier yesterday, the religious affairs ministry sources said the registration process would be ended at 5:00pm today (Monday).
