Hajj Experience

Mahmoud Ali Khan

I have just returned from performing Hajj and am truly saddened to say that my experience was not pleasant. The Saudi officials were rude; there was too much waste of food, especially in hotels where pilgrims from North America and Europe stayed. The Saudis have imposed different tiers of Hajj: five star to basic. The latter category is for Muslims from “Third World” countries. Hajj is supposed to be a great leveler, not a venue to flaunt wealth.
