Director General Hajj Dr. Sajid Yousafani in an exclusive interview with state media in Makkah, said that a well-coordinated transportation plan has been put in place for smooth movement of pilgrims.
He urged the Pakistani intending pilgrims to stay back for at least 30 minutes, after offering prayers in Haram, especially for the Friday prayer. He said pilgrims can offer Nawafil, recite Quran, or do Tawaaf for just half an hour after Jamaat prayers to allow the crowd to recede as people in large number from all over the world converge at Masjid-e-Haram during Hajj days.
The Director General said that people in large number thronged the Haram during Duhar, Isha, and Juma prayers. Dr. Sajid Yousafani said he personally supervised the clearance operation on Friday last to ensure hassle free movement of the pilgrims.
As per local media reports, intending pilgrims have expressed satisfaction over the transportation facilities and lauded the Government of Pakistan for facilitating them in offering their prayers at the Ka’aba. They appreciated the government for hiring latest air-conditioned buses to ensure their travel in the holy land easy and comfortable.
