Examine plea seeking independent body for Haj pilgrims: HC

The Delhi High Court on Monday directed the Centre to take a “considerate view” and examine grievances raised in a plea seeking an independent Muslim body to look into arrangements for Haj pilgrims.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar directed the Centre and the concerned ministries to examine and take an expeditious view on the petition filed by Delhi-based advocate Shahid Ali.

Ali, in his plea, referred to the end of subsidy on flights for the pilgrimage and said since this had happened, there was no need for a government-controlled panel to manage its affairs.

He also wanted an end to the Haj Committee Act and to formulate an independent agency to deal with the issues.
