Pakistan is one of those countries that are probably the most hospitable nation out of all. And one can know this for a fact that the entire family will come to the airport just to drop a single person who is either going for Hajj, Umrah, studies, or anything else. The love that people show towards their dear ones is irreplaceable. But now it is going to get difficult for people to come to the airport to drop their loved ones as the airport security is putting a restriction on the number of people coming along with the passengers at the airport.
According to reports, the ASF has issued orders to allow only one visitor to come with the passenger at the Jinnah International Airport as well as at the Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore. The ASF has strictly made it clear that if there are more than 1 person coming in with the passenger, then they won’t be allowed to enter the premises of the airport. They will be asked to step down and not enter the airport due to security concerns. The limitation of visitors is not the first time that has been imposed on the airports with similar limitation introduced in the past as well.
The reason for limiting the number of people is the security concerns that the ASF has to face. The Hajj operations are now underway both at the Jinnah International Airport and the Allama Iqbal International Airport, where people come in numbers to drop off their loved ones who are going to perform Hajj this year. Due to this, there are security concerns with so many people coming to the airport and this is why the ASF had to take this decision so that the footfall can decrease at the airports during the Hajj operations.
