This could be a brilliant idea, Ahmed. It looks like they handles Christian pilgrims but they can use the same experience to help us ooooooooo!!!!!!!!. Allah.

I think the Hajj Board should seek a professional advise from a company called Shareworld. They are very efficient in Pilgrimage issues. They may freely help the board. Hajj fails innocent pilgrims almost every time.

May Allah save us from modern days hypocrites. Hope and pray that they will operate above their personal and party interest. Anything beyond this, they should prepare themselves for the wrath of God.
For me ; I think this government and past governments are WRONG !!!!!!!to get involve in this Hajj thing ; the question is what is so special about going to Mecca and why not Jerusalem ;Nana Addo visited the wailing wall in Israel did anybody organise his trip besides a lot of Christian visit the holy land every year ; who organises these trips for them ; IS IT THE GOVERNMENT ; so why on earth is government involved with these muslims ; why does the Nana Addo government waste useful resources in getting involved in managing a private venture because the Hajj pilgrimage is not a government institution besides to me it is blatant rekligious discrimination ; the government is involve in this Zongo development scheme whereas there are other places which are are poorly developed and needs help ; WHY IS NANA ADDO is INVOLVED WITH THESE MUSLIM DEVELOPMEMNT SCHEMES ; WHY ARE NOT CHRISTIAN besides the government should rather spend their time developing the Tourism indudtsy for our brothers and sisters to come a spend time in their ancestral land rather than using this HAjj business to pur cash to the the Suadi government; CAN'THE GOVERNMENT SEE THE BUSINESS CONNECTIONS : IT IS A BUSINESS !!!!!!!-DUMBOS !!!!!!because going to HAJJ in Mecca does not make a ggod person neither is it an insurance policy to get to heaven ; the Arabs and Isrelis are doing it and raking in huge cash ; why does government not do same .

It is okay to set up a new board, but there is a need to include at least a woman in the Boardd membership, who will see to the welfare of women pilgrims.
