While talking to 24NewsHD TV channel, he said that the money had been transferred to the accounts of Hujjaj. He also announced not to perform Hajj for free.

“I will go on Hajj at my own expense. I will also pay for my employees who are going on Hajj with me,” he stated.

“There is a lot of pressure on me, but I will not let anyone to go on Hajj for free,” he pledged.

“For God’s sake, everyone going on Hajj should go as a Muslim and represent his country instead of showing his affiliation with PML-N, PTI and JUI,” he appealed.

“Politics can be done after coming back from Hajj. But there one should be a Pakistani only,” he added.
