The Pakistani Hajj App was launched by Minister Umar Saif. The pilgrimage to Makkah, known as Hajj, stands as the fifth pillar of Islam holding significant importance. To enhance and streamline the pilgrimage experience, the National Information Technology Board (NITB) has introduced the Pakistan Hajj App.
At a launch event held at the NITB office in Islamabad, the Caretaker Federal Minister for Religious Affairs, Aneeq Ahmed, and the Caretaker Federal Minister for Information Technology and Telecom, Dr. Umar Saif, officially unveiled the Hajj app.
During the event, Dr. Umar highlighted that, following the directives of SIFC, the country has expedited the digitization process. He further explained that the app encompasses comprehensive information about the Hajj pilgrimage, including payment for Hajj rituals.
Additionally, details such as group information, training schedules, and residency in Saudi Arabia are featured in the application, providing a comprehensive resource for pilgrims. Furthermore, the minister emphasized that pilgrims will have the ability to stay informed about the real-time map and location of Hajj sites while making payments with the Pakistani Hajj App.
Conversely, the Caretaker Minister of Religious Affairs, Aneeq Ahmed, expressed commendation for the commendable efforts of the Ministry of IT and its affiliate, NITB. He underscored that the application marks a crucial advancement in upgrading the current system pertaining to Hajj operations.
Additionally, he stated that the Pakistani Hajj App will enable authorities to promptly address any complaints and gain authentic feedback from pilgrims. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NITB, Babar Majeed Bhatti, provided a comprehensive overview of the application to the participants.
Geared towards facilitating pilgrims during their journey to Saudi Arabia, the mobile app is poised to revolutionize complaint management and furnish timely, pertinent information to pilgrims. Additionally, the app will feature real-time tracking capabilities, ensuring a smooth and secure Hajj experience for all participants, thanks to the Pakistani Hajj App.
`The primary objective of the Pakistani Hajj App is to empower pilgrims by giving them the ability to provide independent reviews and feedback regarding their Hajj journey.

This approach aims to foster transparency and accountability in the pilgrimage experience. Furthermore, a specialized team of experts is committed to enhancing the Hajj operations of the Ministry of Religious Affairs, aiming for the smooth integration of digital solutions into the sacred pilgrimage process.
