Government thinking of doing away with Haj subsidy: SM Krishna

Monday, 2 April 2012
Comments(5)
Kochi, April 02:

External affairs minister S M Krishna on Monday said the government is having "second thoughts" on continuing the Haj subsidy as a number of Muslim organisations have demanded its abolition.

A large number of Muslim organisations have approached the Centre, seeking abolition of the subsidy concept for Haj, he told reporters here when asked if there are plans to provide similar package for Christian pilgrims going to the Holy Land.

"There have been second thoughts even with reference to Haj. Haj reforms are taking place and this aspect will also form part of the reforms," he said, adding the government was seriously looking into it.

"We are eventually thinking of doing away with subsidy content. Large number of Muslim organisations want to abolish the subsidy concept for Haj," Krishna said.

ABOLISH HAJ SUBSIDY NOW.

AND CALL OFF THE MONOPOLY BLUFF OF AIR-INDIA... The airline that treats its passengers worst than cattle (esp. Muslim Passengers... are discriminated and insulted).

NO NEED FOR SUBSIDY BLUFF. Let the Hajis book their ticket thru any airline (indian/foreign). Let there be healthy competition. May the best airline grab the maximum passengers.

EK HAATH SE SUBSIDY DENA - DOOSRE HAATH SE MAAL LENA. Congress Hypocricy must end. India is a secular nation... so no subsidy for religious travel. Be it Haj., Amarnath., or Jerusalam.

The moment you weaken it (Shahbano case)., you provide a new lease of life to RSS-BJP. Rajiv did it... and then PV Narasimha Rao got Rajiv killed., became PM., and laid the red carpet for RSS-BJP. (PV was worst than Advani). Congress and BJP are the same... its only a matter of style.

MUSLIMS MUST TAKE TO SECULAR EDUCATION (SCIENCE AND MATH).

MUSLIM WOMEN MUST GIVE UP GOLD JEWELRY. ITS A WASTE OF RESOURCES. INSTEAD ADORN YOURSELF WITH THE JEWELRY OF KNOWLEDGE (MATH AND SCIENCE). YEH ZEVAR QABR TAK SAATH CHALEGA. SONA-CHANDI-JAWAHERAAT KAA ZEVAR : JAAN KAA JANJAAL. DIRTY YELLOW METAL.

MARWARIS BECAME RICH DUPING / FOOLING / CHEATING MUSLIMS. REMEMBER THAT. Hindi-Urdu mein baaten kar kar ke., Marwariyon ne khoob loota Musalmaanon ko. ., Marwari rich bana hau.

HAJJ SUBSIDY

No need of subsidies to Hajj pilgrims as if HAJJ COMMITTEE / WAQF BOARD books fligts in BULK, air lines will make a que infront of Hajj Office with bulk/huge discounts......

I condemn, abolishing the Haj subsidy

Dear Brothers,

I request all muslims brothers & sisters to come forward, together and raise our voice against abolishing the Haj subsidy.
I really dont understand why some of these Muslim organisations/ so called muslim leader trying to put our fellow Muslims into more difficult situation/ taking away the oppourtunity to perfrom the Hajj.
In India alone there are 50 million Muslims out of that only 2.5% of rich Muslims could able to pay for their pilgrimage to Hajj and the rest has to depend on govt. subsidy.
If the abolishing of Hajj subsidy bill passed by the govt. then all those Muslims would not be able to perform Hajj in their lifetime.
I strongly condemn this act of our so called self Muslim Leaders/ Organisation and govt.

Jazakallah

I appreciate your thoughts

I appreciate your thoughts and many of us do.
What so ever it is . untill and unless their is nothing haram we can accept it
Also it is true that in so called Air India flights the air hostess will ill treat the muslim. That should be kept in mind
