Bank-e- Millie Afghan
Jade Ibne Sina - Kabul Afghanistan

Some religious scholars have criticised the Ministry of Haj for receiving money in advance from intending pilgrims, suspecting the ministry may have entered a secret deal with the Afghan Millie Bank, where the advance (50.000 AFS) has been deposited.(20120724) But Deputy Haj Minister Daeeul Haq Abid said there was no deal involved, saying that the move was aimed at bringing reforms to the haj process. He claimed similar procedures were followed in Iran, Malaysia and Turkey. “Under the contract among the Afghan Millie Bank and ministries of hajj and finance, the bank cannot use the deposited money for trade deals,'' he explained. The bank’s head, Muhibullah Safi, in response to a question about the deposits, said: "It is too early to talk on this issue.'' He added the ministry concerned should be asked such questions.(20120724)
