Signing of bilateral annual Haj 2018 agreement between Republic of India & Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

UnionMinister for Minority Affairs ShriMukhtar Abbas Naqvi today said that Saudi Arabia has given the green signal for India’s decision to revive the option of sending Haj pilgrims through sea route also and officials from both the countries will discuss on all the necessary formalities and technicalities so that Haj pilgrimage through sea route can be started in the coming years.

A decision in this regard was taken yesterday,during the signing of bilateral annual Haj 2018 agreement between India and Saudi Arabia by Shri Naqvi and Haj and Umrah Minister of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Excellency Dr Mohammad Saleh bin TaherBenten at Makkah.

Shri Naqvi said that sending pilgrims through ships will help cut down travel expenses significantly. “It will be a revolutionary, pro-poor, pilgrim-friendly decision”, ShriNaqvi added. The practice of ferrying Haj pilgrims between Mumbai and Jeddah by waterways was stopped from 1995.

The Minister said that another advantage with ships available these days is they are modern and well-equipped to ferry 4,000 to 5,000 persons at a time. They can cover the 2,300-odd nautical miles one-side distance between Mumbai and Jeddah within just 3-4 days. Earlier, the old ships used to take 12 to 15 days to cover this distance.

Shri Naqvi said that last yearhe had discussed the option to revive sea route for Haj pilgrimage with Transport and Shipping Minister ShriNitinGadkari. Now, after the green signal from the Saudi Arabia Government, officials from India and Saudi Arabia will discuss all the issues related to Haj pilgrimage through sea route. He said that this time Haj 2018 has been made 100 per cent digital/online. India’s transparent and digital Haj process has been lauded by Saudi Arabia Government.

Shri Naqvi said that for the first time Muslim women from India will go to Haj without “Mehram” (male companion). Separate accommodation and transport has been arranged for these women Haj pilgrims in Saudi Arabia and women “Haj Assistant” will be deployed for their assistance.

He pointed out that more than 1300 women have applied to go for Haj without male “Mehram” and all of these women will be exempted from lottery system and allowed to proceed to Haj. Women above 45 years of age, who wish to go for Haj but who don’t have a male companion, are allowed to travel for Haj in groups of 4 or more women according to the new Haj policy of India.

He pointed out that his meeting with Saudi Arabia’s Haj &Umrah Minister His Excellency Dr Mohammad SalehBenten was very fruitful, as a constructive discussion was held on whole gamut of issues related to the Indian Haj pilgrims and Haj pilgrimage.

On behalf of the people and Government of India, ShriNaqvi, extended gratitude to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, His Excellency Saudi Arabia King Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, for his keen personal interest and initiative in organising a successful Haj 2017. “We are confident that under the dynamic and visionary leadership of His Excellency Saudi Arabia King Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud, the excellent relationship between India and Saudi Arabia will be further strengthened and reach new heights”, he said

ShriNaqvi said that India and Saudi Arabia share the ideals of global peace, progress and prosperity. “We are tied together with strong civilizational, cultural, economic and political links. The regular visits by the leaders and senior-level officials of the two nations have further strengthened the relationship between the two nations”, the Minister stated. “The visit of the Prime Minister,ShriNarendraModi, to Saudi Arabia during April 2016has added new dimensions to our vibrant relationship”, he added.

Shri Naqvi said that Haj pilgrimage is one of the strongest pillars of India-Saudi Arabia ties.

The Minister emphasised that about 3 lakh 59 thousand application have been received for Haj 2018. “For the first time, we have given option to Haj pilgrims to opt for another embarkation point. This will ensure that there is no financial burden on Haj pilgrims even after removal of Haj subsidy. This decision has received overwhelming response:,ShriNaqvi said.

  • The Indian envoy briefed officials about the “Study in India” program; Saudi students can pursue higher studies in disciplines of their interest in 150 reputable Indian institutes
RIYADH: Indian Ambassador Ahmad Javed met senior officials during a visit to the King Saud University (KSU) campus in Riyadh and discussed cooperation to enhance education ties between the two countries.

The ambassador visited the KSU recently and held a meeting with Abdullah Al-Salman, vice president of the university, which was also attended by Director of International Cooperation Mezyad Al-Terkawi, Dean of the Science College Nasser Al-Daghri, Dean of the Engineering College Waleed Zahid and other senior officials.

The ambassador held detailed discussion with the vice president on bilateral cooperation in higher education and the possibility of collaboration with Indian universities and academic institutes.

The Indian envoy briefed officials about the “Study in India” program; Saudi students can pursue higher studies in disciplines of their interest in 150 reputable Indian institutes.

The Indian ambassador also shared a detailed brochure with the vice president about the program, maintaining that Saudi students would find it culturally comfortable and educationally stimulating in India at a significantly lower cost.

The vice president was appreciative of the achievements made by the Indian institutes for technical learning, such as Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), excellence in the fields of management, medicine, science and technology, and expressed interest in having collaboration with IIT and the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) and entering into student exchange programs with Indian institutes.

Responding to the vice president’s interest in collaboration with Indian institutes, the ambassador asked about specific streams and research fields the Saudi side would be willing to have collaboration with Indian institutes.

The director of international cooperation said that India, despite its significant achievements in the field of higher studies, was not able to present its strength in the study programs appropriately, suggesting that there should be regular interactions between the faculties from the two countries.

He advised that KSU could host an exhibition of Indian institutes of high repute in the near future. Al-Terkawi further advised hosting a symposium on IT and science tech to which Saudi scholars could be invited.

Javed requested a list of speakers, scholars and researchers from KSU who could be invited to the symposium. After the meeting, the ambassador visited the science and engineering colleges of the university and met a number of Indian faculty members who have been associated with the university for several years.

KSU has 65 Indian faculty members in the science college, about 80 faculty members in the engineering and IT colleges, as well as a number of Indian students who are pursuing higher studies at the university.

They can still fund terrorism in India. This is what Pakistan wants. Entire muslim world against India. Also if this is not paid back in kind they will surely attempt to damage our relations with west by painting Hindus anti-christian. Infact I came accross a tweet talking about starting similar campaign against Hindus in US.

Muslim hatred is now sky high in the Western world. Listen to Trump.


Future is Shale Gas under USMCA agreement. GCC is dead. Thats why all this 'Islamophobia' spin to Tablighis.

USMCA makes sure that there are no tariffs on the flow of energy products across North America. It also establishes more flexible rules of origin requirements for oil and natural gas traded between the three countries. This is a great thing because North American energy markets are deeply integrated and interconnected. The free flow of energy products and investments in oil and gas is essential to U.S. “energy dominance” and economic growth. The U.S. easily leads in energy production, in recent years yielding 25% more oil than second place Saudi Arabia and 25% more gas than second place Russia.
