A Glimpse of “Sarkari Hajis”
By Mumtaz Alam Falahi

The Government of India every year sends Haj Goodwill Delegation to Saudi Arabia. Members of delegations are handpicked. Have a look at the list of nine such delegations from 2000 to 2008, and you will conclude: They are politicians, journalists, clerics (Ulema), bureaucrats and social workers. If you find Dr Farooq Abdullah, Syed Sibte Razi, A R Antulay and Mehbooba Mufti, you will also find Maulana Arshad Madani, Maulana Anzar Shah Kashmiri, Mufti Abdul Mannan Kalimi, Qari Mohammed Mian Mazhari and Maulana Qari Mufti Alhaj Syed Mohammed Noor. Besides, there are Allama Mohammed. Tauseef Raza Khan, Peerzada Ayazuddin Chishty, Sajjadah Nasheen of Dargah Hazrat Saleem Chishty, Fatehpur Sikri and Peer Khawaja Ahmed Nizami, chief head priest, Dargah Hazrat Nizamuddin. Whether one agrees or not, they are known as “Sarkari Hajis” by a section of people. Fana Watch is reproducing the nine-year list of Haj Goodwill Delegations from 2000 to 2008 with thanks to www.TwoCircles.net.
