Bangka Belitung, MINA – A prospective Hajj pilgrim (CJH) from Central Bangka, Bangka Belitung Islands (Babel) died.

The head of the Central Bangka Ministry of Religion, Muhammadiyah in Koba said on Saturday (6/7) that the Central Bangka CJH quota was 186 people, initially 187 people but a CJH was reported to have died after being entered into the flight to the Holy Land.

He also explained that the death of the CJH could no longer be replaced by other pilgrim candidates who were on the waiting list because he had already joined the fleet.

“Then it can be ascertained that currently based on data, the CJH 2019 quota from Central Bangka is 186 people who are members of the 7th and 8th batches,” he said.

He stated, according to the schedule as many as 186 candidates for the Central Bangka pilgrimage will be dispatched on 12 and 13 July 2019 through hajj embarkation in Palembang, South Sumatra.

“All administrations have been completed, they just have to leave and we appeal to maintain health before, during and after completing the Hajj,” he continued.

He also said that 186 prospective pilgrims were residents who had registered for a long time and had been put on the waiting list to be dispatched.

“The waiting list for Hajj from Central Bangka is quite long, even for the next five years because the number of registrants is not comparable to the quota provided,” he concluded. (R / Ast/P2)
