#HajjStampede : Saudi Arabian Prince Blames Hajj Stampede On Presence Of African Pilgrims

I guess since they originated the religion they get to say whatever they like, all evidence to the contrary.
Our continent is now divided into Christians, Muslims, and others; so the dependency on the outsider for validation continues unabated no matter how much we scream about being independent. Even our gods have to be borrowed.
The head of Saudi Arabia’s hajj committee, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, has blamed the stampede that occurred during the Hajj on African pilgrims.
According to IB Times UK, Saudi TV is reporting Prince Khaled as having said the stampede occurred due to “some pilgrims with African nationalities”
The Health Minister Khaled al-Falih, also echoed similar sentiments, saying “many pilgrims move without respecting the timetables [set by authorities, which was the] principal reason for this type of accident. If the pilgrims had followed instructions, this type of accident could have been avoided.”
This is utter horses**t, as this is not the first time a stampede is killing people at the Hajj. I guess African pilgrims caused those other ones as well.
During the ‘stoning of the devil’ ritual at this year’s Hajj, the huge number of people taking part  led to a stampede that killed over 700 people, injuring even more.
Despite all this, I’m sure already some people are looking forward to making next year’s Hajj.
