Arbaeen pilgrims walking from Najaf to Karbala

Rouhani agrees with 35% discount exchange rate for Arbaeen pilgrims

MNA – President Hassan Rouhani agreed with the suggestion of the Central Bank for a 35% discount out of NIMA System exchange rate for Arba’een pilgrims.

According to the official website of Iran’s Presidency, Rouhani wrote to Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Governor Abdolnasser Hemmati, agreeing with the 35% discount for exchange rate out of NIMA System, given “the importance of making pilgrimage to Imam Hussein (AS), especially in Arba’een, and its turning into a glorious procession in recent years by those who love the Ahl ul-Bayt (AS), and the effect of this move on the despair of the enemies of the dear Islam.”

The CBI Governor had written a letter to President Rouhani to suggest that the discount be allocated to Arba’een pilgrims.
