Hajj Stampede: Shocking Indeed!

Hajj, a yearly pilgrimage carried out by Muslims around the world who are physically and financially stable. Every year a million of people perform hajj and this no doubt is one of the greatest challenge that the Government of Saudi Arabia faces. This year, an approximate of 2 million people performed hajj which is too much considering that there is construction going on at the holy mosque of Mecca which is restricting the use of the space available. No sooner the crane incident has disappeared from the void thoughts of our mind than the massive stampede has taken place.
