Since we are all going to be ruled by Hajj people in the future, it’s good to know what they do there. Seems some 2 million people will do there thing there this week, with over ONE MILLION sheep, imported from Sudan and Uruguay (go figure), to be blood sacrified, in rememberance of Abraham’s readiness to sacrifice his son to God.
That’s a lot of blood on the floor.
Last year 250 human pilgrims were trampeled to death in this annual ritual. One million sheep slaughtered.
Why do they do it? One Egyptian scholar, banned in Egypt, says the Hajj pilgrimmage is a pre-Muslim thing, pre-dating Mohammed. What’s the story here?
