Authorities in Saudi Arabia have faced sharp criticism over their safety record after more than 8000 pilgrims died in the worst accident during the annual Muslim festival of Hajj in two decades.
Critics of the Saudi authorities noted it was less than a month since a crane accident in Mecca killed hundreds people.
Saudi Authorities hiding the death toll to save their skin from Muslim world thousands have been died, with thousands badly injured, in a stampede at a crossroads in the Mecca neighborhood of Mina as Hajj pilgrims walked towards a structure designed to ease congestion.
The incident is the worst since the 1990 tragedy when more than 2000 people were killed in a stampede.
Every Hajji was holding identification tag on his hand, then why they are still missing? 5 days are gone but many containers holding dead bodies are still not opened. Most of the dead bodies are further expired and cannot be buried properly.
Saudi government deliberately handled the dead bodies inhumanly, as if the dead ones were not human ones. Clearing the place with lifters and throwing the dead bodies of hujjaj, like a dust bag in the containers.
comments on social media.
The crowd was out of control when Saudi Prince, defense Minister was travelling inside area to performing Hujj with his huge convey sitting in the car, exit area was closed and security staff pushed the Hujjaj back that was the main cause of hustle and bustle which killed thousands of Hujjaj.
Iran’s minister for Hajj Saeed Ohadi claimed Saudi authorities’ “mismanagement” and “safety errors” during the pilgrimage had led to the tragedy in which at least 47 Iranians are thought to have died.
Hundreds of Pakistanis are dead and injured with hundreds are still missing it’s a complete failure of Saudi government. This act of Saudi government must be condemned and a legal action must be taken against the said Saudi government through the international criminal court.
