ISLAMABAD: Saudi Arabia has once again rejected  Pakistan plea for increasing  Hajj quota.

Minister for religious affairs Sardar Yousaf had requested  Saudi Hajj Ministry last week  for an increase in Hajj Quota.

According to a private TV channel, ministry of religious affairs had requested that Hajj quota be enhanced for Pakistan because of  increase in its population.

Saudi Hajj Ministry while rejecting application took the plea that census in Pakistan is now underway  and is not completed yet, therefore it is difficult to evaluate how much population has increased in Pakistan. It can  be considered after completion of census that how much hajj quota can be increased.
