Thanks to Joe Brown for drawing our attention to this news story.
Just after we’ve been discussing Hajj with Year 11 and how it is a pilgrimage to ask for forgiveness to Allah, this happens. It was even discussed in class about the huge numbers of people who are doing Hajj this week and you’ve got to be careful of the crushes. It had been thought that health and safety at all the main points of the pilgrimage had been improved in recent years. Seemingly not.
In class we watched this informative video about American pilgrims going on Hajj and how they wanted to seek forgiveness.
