In Saudi officials, I saw Muslims but little Islam: British Hajj pilgrim
A British woman who took part in this year’s Hajj rituals in Saudi Arabia says the Saudi authorities running the pilgrimage were Muslims in name only.
In an article published on the website of The Guardian, British writer and activist Sabreena Razaq Hussain said a number of factors, including Saudi authorities’ treatment of pilgrims, contributed to the deadly crush during Hajj rituals in Mina, near Mecca.
‘No concern for pilgrims’ welfare’
“In Mecca I saw Muslims, but I saw little Islam. I did not see compassion from our hosts, I did not see their concern for our welfare,” she wrote.
