Ministry of Religious Affairs Launches SMS Service to Prevent Fraud During Hajj 2019

In order to avoid fraud in Hajj 2019, the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony has launched short message services (SMS). The SMS will save private hajj pilgrims from fake Hajj Groups.

People who are planning to perform Hajj this year through any private Haj group organizer should send the first four digits of that particular Hajj organizer enrollment number from his mobile to 8331 to check its authenticity.
