Haj - 2018 Roll back Draw system in Gujarat

This petition had 1,124 supporters

In Gujarat, due to high no. of applications for Haj pilgrimage received each year, the Central Haj Committee, India has introduced reserved category for the Fourth and Fifth timer applicant for last five years. With this policy in operational until this year, potential haj pilgrim applicants waiting for last four/five years were certain for their selection to perform their Haj in 2018 due to allotted reserved category/cover no. with GJR initials. Here in GJR (R)  stands for RESERVED. However, from next year onward, with introduction of new Haj Policy - 2018, Central Haj Committee has introduced Exclusive Draw system to select pilgrims from application received at the State level eliminating Reserved category system operational for last five years. 

This new draw system is arbitrary and causes great injustice to the aspiring applicant who have been waiting for last four or five years for their turn to come. Due to this unfair introduction of exclusive draw system, around 20,000 plus fourth and fifth timer applicant are affected in Gujarat. The same scenario is applicable for many other states like Kerala, Mahrashtra, Karnataka and Jammu & Kashmir. 

With this petition, We petitioner appeal Ministry of Minority Affairs, Central Haj Committee of India and State Haj Committee, Gujarat to Roll back unfair Draw system in Gujarat and other states of India where applicants are waiting for last four or five years for their turn to perform Haj pilgrimage in the year 2018.
