Saudi Arabia allows Hajj this year for 60,000 people

Saudi Arabia has allowed Hajj for 60,000 people from across the world, including Pakistanis, Special Representative to the Prime Minister on Religious Harmony Maulana Tahir Ashrafi confirmed late Saturday.

The special representative said the Saudi government would later inform Pakistan about the number of pilgrims that will be allowed to perform the ritual from the country.

Allama Ashrafi said people under the age of 18 and over 60 will not be able to go for Hajj, while the pilgrims would have to quarantine in Saudi Arabia for 3 days — and vaccination is a must.
