    Other officials

    Fazal Mohammad Hussaini, media director for MoHRA, told Pajhwok this year about 13,582 people from Afghanistan were performing Hajj and the flight operation had been completed .

    Pajhwok asked the Ministry of Hajj to share the number of pilgrims and the list of government officials from different provinces. The ministry, however, did not provide the details.

    Hussaini insisted:“The Ministry of Hajj and Religious Affairs provides same services to all pilgrims, whether government officials or ordinary people. I cannot say who will go and who will not but those who have gone there are known to us as pilgrims.”

    A delegation from the ministry had travelled to Makkah earlier to arrange for pilgrims teachers, accommodation, transport, food, tents and other services in Mina and Arafat.

    According to a Pajhwok report , in the solar year 1391, about 3,000 government servants had gone on Hajj without participating in any draw. Every minister, parliament member and governor had introduced two persons each for Hajj.

    In the solar year 1398, former president Ashraf Ghani had underlined the need for reducing the participation of government officials in the process.
