Sue The Saudis

Via BBC, South Asia counts Hajj death toll

Frankly, this annual dying is squarely the consequence of criminal crowd management by Saudi authorities. India should sue the dictators in Riyadh -- for Billions of their ill-earned Dollars -- on behalf of our innocent dead.

The suing will need to be a non-governmental organization or by private individuals. The governments involved are either too scared of pissing off the Saudis, or are not being held accountable.

In 2004 it was the 'Will of God' - probably because Arab Sunnis died. This time they blamed the crowd - those unruly second-class non-Arab Muslims from South-Asia. Disgusting.

Not possible. Islam is all about equality. All muslims are the same class.

anonymous: "All muslims are the same class". Good theory - resounding failure in practice. The Saudis (and Kuwaitis) think subscontinental muslims are wooly-headed peaceniks. For them non Arab muslims are not "watanis".

Saudi Arabia is not a place I want to live in my nightmare. That having been said, how is it that their billions is ill-earned?. Is it because they control oil production and drive up prices?. But isn't that their prerogative. They have something to sell and they choose how much to sell at any time.

rajagopal:
i am assuming the "ill earned" part alludes to the al saud family. after all they are "saud - i- arabia"...

Nukh has it exactly right. Why should the world have to accept the legitimacy of this autocracy?

Best regards
