A group of 72 reformist Dawoodi Bohras from Udaipur left to perform Haj on Nov 19, 2009. They were sent off after Isha prayers and a grand ceremony held at Wajeehpura masjid. President of the Dawoodi Bohra Jamaat Udaipur, Dr. Abid Adeeb addressed the gathering and wished them well.

Secretary of the Jamaat Mr. Yusuf RG, and other members like Mr. Husssain Udaipuri and Abbas Ali Gulshan were also present, and the Khutba was recited by Janaab Peer Mohammed Sahab.

As is the tradition, the departing group was accompanied by the public in a huge procession to the Rasoolpur masjid. On the way they were greeted by friends and relatives and showered with flowers. The group will travel to Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Syria and Egypt for the next three months.
