Hajj minister presents 100-day work plan
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Hajj and Religious Affairs Minister Faiz Mohammad Usmani on Tuesday presented his 100-day working plan to the president, saying supervision of Friday prayers specifically sermons and the exact number of masques were his ministry’s priorities.
Each ministry had been tasked by the president to prepare a 100-day working plan to make sure every ministry is actively working to eliminate administrative corruption and remove flaws and drawbacks.
Explaining his plan, Usmani said creation of new 700 posts in the ministry for Ulama and converting the existing 4,426 contract based post to permanent status was part of his plan. He said in the future no religious scholar will be working on contract base.
He said earlier the contract based employees took trivial amount of salaries, adding that creation of fresh 700 posts has encouraged Ulama and they lauded the decision.
Distribution of carpet to worship places, creation of an institution for training of Imams, dispatching 30 Imams for two months training to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and creation of consultative council for Kabul Ulama were other points to be implemented in the coming months, he pledged.
In future, he said Imams would receive subject for Juma prayer through SMS from the ministry, a step to ensure unity among masses and spreading right message of Islam.
