SAUDIS AND HEIGHT OF HEARTLESSNESS, By Jaafar Jaafar

NEWISSUES, Abuja

In the holy month of Thul-Hijja, when a lot of Hajis are still performing Tawaf al Wadaa, while the world still mourn the death of thousands (yes thousands) in Saudi Arabia, following a twin tragedy of crane crash at Harem and stampede at Jamrat, Saudi authorities organized the first WWE championship.

At the resplendent King Abdullah Sports City Sports Hall (AlJawhara Stadium), the Saudis thronged from far and near to watch the star-studded championship, dubbed WWE Jeddah 2015, featuring John Cena, The Miz, The Ascension, Curtis Axel, Bolieve, Dean Ambrose, The Big Show, Chris Jericho, Lucha Dragons, Jack Swagger, Luke Harper, Shamus, among others.

Out there in Mecca, 100 kilometers away from Jeddah arena, relations of the victims of Hajj stampede are trying to see the bodies of their loved ones.

Is this how to mourn the death of people in the Islamic culture? Is wrestling part of the sports approved of by Islam such that it takes place during mourning? Is this how to show respect to the people?

    At least Saudi authority should postponed it to six month period, for sympathy for the dead ones.
