Many countries including Iran that lost 43 pilgrims have accused Saudi-Arabia for poor safety errors that caused the accident, however, some Saudi Arabian government officials put the blame on pilgrims themselves for failing to follow the rules amended by the authorities, some pilgrims donot respect the time table, they just move outside any how, but if they had followed instructions, this kind of accident would not happen.
Some pilgrims said this year’s Hijja was poorly organized, they didnot bother to implement proper strategies of how all this big number of people will be secure no matter how many pilgrimes will come in.
