A Saudi citizen rammed his car into Gate 89 of the Masjid Haram – Grand Mosque in Mecca yesterday evening, local police reported and seen in footage shared on social media.
The incident occurred at 10:25 pm local time when a speeding car burst through the Grand Mosque’s complex from the surrounding street near the southern yard of the after running over the pedestrian pavement, the car skid its way through the slippery floors of the Mosque and hit Gate 89 in an obvious attempt to break into the main yard where the Kaaba is, the holiest building in Islam built in a cubic shape by Prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismael thousands of years ago.
Policemen and Mosque guards rushed to the car and arrested the man they claimed later to be in an ‘abnormal condition’, whatever that means.
It will be difficult for the Saudi authorities to explain how this incident happened to the 1.8 billion Muslims around the world, especially at the heightened time of the attacks on Islam by the French regime of Macron, one of their close ally in bombing Yemen, one of the poorest Arabic and Islamic country. The Grand Mosque should be very well protected from such attacks.
One can only wonder what would have happened to the region if that driver was Iranian and not Saudi, in whatever mental case he would be, but thanks to God’s Grace this incident did not escalate, no injuries, and no serious harm done to the Mosque, and the driver wasn’t able to crash through the main yard.
