- Pakistani

It is an honour for every Muslim to perform Hajj or Umrah. It costs about Rs300,000 for a Pakistani pilgrim to perform Hajj.

Due to lots of expenditure it is difficult for so many Muslims to set their pilgrimage.

The Ministry of Ports and Shipping has decided to economise the holy journey in order
to facilitate the Pakistani Muuslims.

As it has decided to run a ship service for Muslims who want to go to Saudi Arabia for Hajj and Umrah. It would provide economical transport.

There is also a facility for visitors who want to go to religious places in Iran.

Kamran Michael, the federal minister for ports and shipping, told Daily Express that the Hajj service will only charge Rs25,000 to Rs30,000 to take the pilgrims to the holy land.

The service will begin from the next Hajj season after the prime minister’s approval, he announced.
