Malaysia will plead for additional haj quota from the Saudi Arabian government to allow more Muslims to perform the pligrimage this year.

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said the reduction in quota last year led to higher number of Tabung Haji (TH) depositors and a longer queue for  Muslims wanting to perform the haj.

He said until May, a total of 1.5 million Muslims had registered to perform haj via TH with a large number comprising young people and children.
