Pertinently, around 10, 000 people from Jammu and Kashmir are going to perform the pilgrimage of Hajj this year, as per the draw of lots held in the month of March 2023.

Executive Officer J&K Haj Committee, Abdul Salam Mir said that the exact dates have not been finalized yet. “The Haj pilgrims will start leaving for Saudi Arabia from the first week of June,” he said.

He said that the exact dates will be announced soon.

It is worth mentioning here that the Saudi Arabia government had barred the intending pilgrims above 70 years of age in view of the Covid pandemic in 2020 and 2021.

However, the Saudi government recently announced that pilgrims above 70 years of age will be given priority and for the first time the Saudi government also allowed female pilgrims without a mahram to perform the holy pilgrimage of Haj—(KNO)
