Haj pilgrimage: Kerala HC notice to Ahamed, state govt and Centre
Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday issued a notice
to Minister of State for Railways E Ahamed, Central and
state governments on a PIL seeking to abolish quota for
private operators, who organise tours for Haj pilgrims.
A Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice J Chalemeswar
and Justice C N Ramachandran Nair, admitted the petition and
issued notices to Ahamed and others.
The petitioner, Khalid Mundapally of Kochi, also wanted a
direction to the state and Central governments to introduce
the system of registration with due consideration for persons
aged 65 and above.
Another plea was to constitute an independent and
impartial agency for conducting an efficient investigation
into the irregularity and illegality in the matter of
allotment of quotas for tour operators for Haj pilgrims during
the period 2004-09.
