Haj pilgrims from the Western Uttar Pradesh are facing a lot of problems because the facility is not available for use, they said.

Muslim Maha Sabha (MMS) president Imran Khan met the city magistrate after the Friday Prayers and submitted a memorandum addressed to the CM in this regard.

In the memorandum, Imran has claimed around 12,000 pilgrims are facing difficulties and said they would launch an agitation if the haj house is not opened.
He said the Haj house is a government property and if the Yogi dispensation does not want it to be used by pilgrims, a government school or any technical institute must be start in this building.

The Peace Party also staged a protest at the collectorate and pressed its demand to open the lock of Haj House. The minority cell of the Congress made the same demand.

The then chief minister Akhilesh Yadav had inaugurated the facility in September last year. The multi-storey building meant to serve as a transit-cum-facilitation centre for haj pilgrims is on the banks of the Hindon River. It is caught up in litigation at the National Green Tribunal.
