Minister of State for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Muhammad Aminul Hasnat says the government has decided to introduce a special tracking system this year to know about the exact location of each pilgrim.

In an interview, he said a device would be fixed in wrist watches, lockets or rings worn by the pilgrims which would help the monitoring team to keep their track.

The Minister said food would be provided to the pilgrims of Government Hajj Scheme during their stay in Makkah Mukarramah, Madina Munawara and Mina as it was included in the package.

He said government has launched a training programme for the pilgrims to guide them throughout the whole trip.
