Mumbai: A day-long Haj conference will be held today in the National capital to discuss the possibility of the Malaysian Model of Haji Tabang for the Indian Haj pilgrims.


The conference will be held from 10 a.m to 5 p.m today the 19th June 2012 at the Convention Hall of Ashok Hotel in New Delhi, said a statement issued by K. Rahman Khan, former Chairman, Rajya Sabha.

In this context, possibilities of establishing an institution similar to Tabang Haji in India and also for making Haj pilgrimage comfortable and economical will be discussed.


Long term plans for Haj arrangements will also be discussed in the conference. The participants of the conference consist of Islamic Scholars, intellectuals, economists and organizers of Hajj pilgrimage, the statement said.
