Hajj training camp held in Surrey
Kaushik Salui, Birbhum: The holy pilgrimage has been closed for the past two years due to the coronavirus epidemic. But the Hajj journey is going to be back this year as the situation is normal. A high level training camp was held with the pilgrims on what to do. The event was attended by Suri DRDC Hall in Birbhum on Saturday from different parts of the district as well as officials from the concerned departments including District Minority Development Officer Bimal Kumar Sharma.
According to Birbhum administration sources, the Hajj pilgrimage was stopped in the last two years in 2020 and 2021 due to the Corona Emergency situation, but now the situation is normal. On this day, 165 Hajj pilgrims from 3 subdivisions of the district were trained in Surrey.
6 expert trainers of State Hodge House donate this training to the concerned benefactors throughout the day.
232 people from Birbhum applied for Hajj this year. Some of them have dropped out as they are over 65 years of age and some have withdrawn their names due to other illnesses, meaning that a total of 56 people have been left out. It has been initially decided that the pilgrims from Birbhum district will leave Kolkata Airport for Saudi Arabia on June 17.
Birbhum District Additional District Magistrate Unnayan Supriya Das said, “After two years, the holy Hajj pilgrimage of Abershan is being conducted. Bimal Kumar Sharma, Minority Development Officer in Birbhum district, said, “Two vaccine doses of the virus, which have been approved by the World Health Organization and the Saudi Arabian government, have already been given to pilgrims in the district.”
