during Muharram, said on special directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan,
federal government would take solid measures for provision of
all possible resources to facilitate pilgrims.

paid a short visit to Pak-Iran border city Taftan and asked
the local authorities to facilitate pilgrims and ensure that
they do not face any problems or difficulties, in accordance to
their travelling schedules.
