Stating that the selection process for choosing companies to send pilgrims to Hajj this year was acted unfairly, Sisilfaru Hajj and Umra Group has filed a case against the Ministry of Islamic Affairs at the Civil Court.
Regardless of having 35 years of experience, the company was given only 0.7 percent out of 5 for experience in carrying pilgrims in the evaluation process.
The company claims that the evaluation was not carried out according to the information pamphlet given out by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs.
Further more, they continued stating that they could suffer irreversible losses if they don’t receive permission to send pilgrims this year, as based on past experiences they have made arrangements with multiple partners in advance. The company is seeking a temporary injunction in the case.
The Ministry has disclosed that Thazkiya Pvt Ltd, Zaeema Group Pvt, Mina Hajj Umrah Pvt Ltd, Acro Pvt Ltd and Al-Haramain Hajj and Umrah Company Pvt Ltd have been granted license and 90 quotas each in a press conference earlier this week.
Ministry of Islamic Affairs is yet to release a statement on this case.
