While we have done our preparations, India will go by the decision of the Govt of Saudi Arabia on Haj 2021: Union Minister MA Naqvi  

Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi – Union Minister of Minority Affairs :

The Union Minister of Minority Affairs Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi held a review meeting about Haj 2021 at the Haj House in Mumbai today.

He however said that “while we have done our preparations, India will go by the decision of the Government of Saudi Arabia. 

“While some countries are not able to send their citizens to Haj 2021, India has decided that we will stand shoulder to shoulder with the Govt. of Saudi Arabia, we will go ahead in line with the decision taken by the Saudi Government.

Our priority continues to be the health and well-being of people of both nations and also of humanity” Shri Naqvi said at a Press Conference which followed the review meeting.

The Minister said that a nationwide campaign will be launched by various social and educational institutions to “curb and crush” rumours and apprehension regarding the vaccination drive going on in India. “State Haj Committees, Waqf Boards, their associated organisations, Central Waqf Council, Maulana Azad Education Foundation and other social and educational institutions will be part of the campaign,” he added.

Speaking about the country’s preparations for Haj 2021, Shri Naqvi said that a review has been taken of the current position on vaccinations, based on directions given by the Haj Committee of India and the guidelines given by the Health Department of the Government of Saudi Arabia.  

More than 2.5 million people perform the Haj pilgrimage in the holy city of Mecca every year. 

It may be recalled that last year, due to Covid 19 pandemic, the Saudi Arabian Government had announced that it would hold ‘limited Haj’ confined to people of different nationalities already living in the Kingdom.

India’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Dr. Ausaf Sayeed; Consul General of India in Jeddah Shri Shahid Alam and senior officials of the Union Ministry of Minority Affairs attended today’s meeting through video conferencing.

The Haj Committee of India CEO Shri M A Khan and other officials were also present

Am amazed at the order of Central Govt that prevents states from sharing information regarding vaccine stocks! : Manish Sisodia

Am amazed at the order of Central Govt that prevents states from sharing information regarding vaccine stocks!

The Central Govt needs to focus on ensuring adequate supply of vaccine to all, rather than hiding the true position of vaccine availability, from the public.
