Islamabad: Minister for Religious Affairs Syed Khursheed Ahmad Shah on Monday informed the House that during next Hajj three categories of accommodation called Blue Green and White would be acquired in Makkah Makarama up to a distance of 700 meter 1200 meters and 3000-4000 meters from Haram.
He said accommodation near Haram is very costly as capacity worth eight hundred thousand pilgrims has been demolished by the Saudi government under Haram expansion plan.
To a supplementary question he said it has been decided that only those individuals would be selected as Khuddamul Hujjaj who have already performed Hajj and they will have to give an undertaking that they would not perform the Hajj. He said the violators would instantly be deported.
