Government Secures Special Flight for Parliamentarians’ Hajj Pilgrimage

Government Secures Special Flight for Parliamentarians' Hajj Pilgrimage

In a proactive initiative designed to alleviate the logistical challenges of Hajj pilgrimage for its parliamentarians, the government announced the arrangement of a dedicated flight during a session of the National Assembly. 

Finance Minister Ishaq Dar unveiled this development to the assembly members, highlighting the government’s commitment to facilitating a smooth Hajj journey for the “honoured members” of the parliament. He shared that a number of parliamentarians have already embarked on their pilgrimage journey, reinforcing the importance of this arrangement. 

This move comes in the backdrop of the restrictions put in place by Saudi Arabian authorities regarding Hajj flights amidst the global health concerns. To navigate these stringent measures, the government successfully negotiated for a special flight earmarked solely for its lawmakers, ensuring their uninterrupted participation in the spiritually significant pilgrimage. 

Dar emphasized that this dedicated flight is poised to be beneficial for the parliamentarians, smoothing their path to observe the crucial day of Arafah. This significant event, integral to the Hajj, is when pilgrims gather on the hill known as Mount Arafah, seeking mercy and blessings from Allah. 

The finance minister disclosed that the specially allocated flight is scheduled for takeoff on Sunday (today). This arrangement paves the way for the parliamentarians to partake in the Hajj pilgrimage, providing them a conducive environment to pray for the prosperity and wellbeing of Pakistan. 

The finance minister also took the opportunity to reflect upon the spiritual significance of the Hajj pilgrimage. He expressed his belief that this sacred journey undertaken by the parliamentarians will resonate positively with their legislative duties, fostering unity, and progress for the nation.

It reflects the government’s commitment to serving its members and upholding the spiritual traditions that form an integral part of the country’s cultural and religious fabric. It also points to the potential for innovative solutions to address the challenges presented by the current global circumstances, demonstrating the government’s resolve in ensuring that religious practices continue unhindered.
