Every year pilgrims get crushed to death in Mina or Arafat. In 2004, 244 died. So, last year, they introduced safety measures. Yet, at least 50 pilgrims died this year, again.

There is no way to control the frenzy of stoning shaitans. Or the hurry of making it back before sunset. Or preventing even a small accident into multiplying beyond belief. It is the literal crush of humanity.

So frustrating.

update: FOUR HUNDRED!? At what point can I start blaming the khadamin-e harmain sharif?
