Nik Aziz cancels sponsored Hajj trip

Its a wise decision, Tok Guru. Cancelling your fully-sponsored Hajj trip will not shoo-off the MACC officials from coming to your office but at least it reduces your political discomfort (read h e r e).

Some people say performing the Hajj must be done within your own budget capability, which means the Hajj will be worth it if the money comes from our 'kudrat' of effort.

I am not an ulama but suggestions that the Kelantan MB is on the take is not for me to comment. What I want to stress here is the talks that are taking place since the news was made known recently.

Some say it's OK while the rest describe it as not appropriate. The RM65,000 per person package offered to him and his family members was somehow 'overwhelming' when the actual cost to perform the Hajj is about RM10,000 per pax (read also what Big Dog says).

The billboard contractor have something indebted to the PAS leader for making such an offer. If just for the sake of sponsoring (should Nik Aziz doesnt have enough to fork out), just pay for him alone. However, taking the whole family is a bit unrealistic.

Now that he has cancelled it, let's see what happens next...

This is interesting as every person who is able should make this journey at least once in their lifetime.
