New Delhi, April 30 (IANS) Even as it reserved its verdict, the Supreme Court Monday asked the government to consider women private operators in the process for the allocation of Haj quota of pilgrims going to Makkah for the pilgrimage every year.
The apex court bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai asked the government to consider the plea after it was told that women Haj operators were being discriminated against in the selection process for the allocation of Haj quota.
The court said there would be no discrimination in the selection of women tour operators.
The apex court reserved its verdict on the central government's petition challenging the Oct 5, 2011 Bombay High Court judgment by which it directed the government to give its remaining quota of 800 Haj pilgrims to private operators so that it may not go unutilised.
