Chitrali intending pilgrims sad on being unable to perform Haj

CHITRAL: After announcement by the Saudi government that there would be no facility for intending Hajis from outside the country, there is a gloom on the faces of keen would be Hajis in Chitral who were hopeful that the restriction would be lifted before the current year’s Haj. Even in Saudi Arabia, Haj has been restricted to pilgrims below 65 years age. According to estimates, Saudi Arabia would loose around 4 billion dollars in Haj revenue this year. The large number of Haj facilitators in Pakistan would also be the big losers this year.
