According to the report UNB, some 93,869 pilgrims from Bangladesh would hopefully perform holy hajj this year. Of them, 6737 hajj pilgrims under government management and 87,132 under private management will go to Saudi Arabia from Bangladesh to perform the holy hajj in 2010.
Three or four star standard houses or hotels with increased facilities compared to anytime in the past have been rented in advance in Makkah and Madinah for the hajj pilgrims under government management.
A 94-member medical team has been formed for 94,000 hajj pilgrims with a ratio of one physician for 1,000 pilgrims to increase the standard of service to sick pilgrims in Saudi Arabia. This year arrangement has been made for the first time to allow all hajj pilgrims to transmit urgent information through SMS. Besides, all pertinent information of the hajj pilgrims is being uploaded on hajj website. One guide will be engaged for 60 hajj pilgrims under both government and private management.
My mother is on of the pilgrims heading to Makka on 7th November 2010. I wish her sound journey, successful tour and safe return. may Allah bless all the pilgrims from all parts of the world. May Allah give us redemption of both dead and alive through the prayers of those hajj pilgrims who aimed to perform Hajj this year.
