Saudi Arabia Detains 400 Nigerian Female Hajj Pilgrims by Nobody: 9:53am On Sep 24, 2012
Four hundred female pilgrims from Nigeria, who arrived in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia yesterday for this year’s hajj,  have been separated from their male counterparts and detained by Saudi authorities, the Daily Trust newspaper is reporting this morning.

According to the report, the Saudis requested each female pilgrim to provide her muharram, that is, the approved male companion accompanying her on her trip, usually a husband, father or brother.
Those who could not produce any, the report said, were detained, with the authorities threatening to deport them back to Nigeria.

Daily Trust reports that the pilgrims arrived Jeddah in two separate Max Air flights Sunday afternoon.
One of the planes, it said,  conveyed pilgrims from Jigawa State while the second had pilgrims from Sokoto State.

“The nearly 400 women were only allowed to be supplied with water and food by the Saudis after strenuous efforts by the Nigerian Consul in Jeddah and the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Alhaji Nurudeen,” the paper said.

When Daily Trust contacted Sultan Muhammadu Sa’ad, who is the Amirul Hajj , he condemned the action of the Saudi authorities, describing it as “an insult to Nigeria and to this country’s millions of Muslims.”
The Sultan reportedly said, “They never raised this issue and never demanded that the female pilgrims must have a muharram. They did not make this a requirement for issuing visas.

They issued visas to all these pilgrims, only to embarrass, detain and threaten to deport them when they arrived in the holy land. How can they do this to us?
“The chairman of the National Hajj Commission assured me that the Saudis never asked for this during all the meetings they held. This is very unfortunate. We have done a lot over the years to improve on our hajj operation and we do not deserve this humiliation.”

The Sultan also told the paper that he had ordered the Nigerian pilgrims to resist any attempt to deport them.
“Let the Saudis physically carry them into the planes and deport them,” he said. “They issued them with valid visas, only to shift the goal posts at the very last minute, when they had already arrived in Jeddah.”

The sultan said they should resist any attempt to deport them. “They should physically carry them and put inside the plane“. Can you see where they get this rascally and babaric behaviour from. Imagine telling women to fight against deportation, then what would you tell men(bokos) to do, maybe kill. Smh. Chief instigator of violence in this coutry.

In view of the possible risk to our dear women, let them act peaceably, if deportation is the final action of the Saudis, let them accept in good faith. But it is surprising what Muslim faithfuls can do to their fellow Muslim faithfuls. No wonder they do the unimaginable to brothers in others religious believes.

How ironic. Yet, some of these people will come back to Nigeria and try to lecture you on who is a true Muslim and who is not.

If they flouted the rules. . .then they should be deported!
Floosies should not be allowed to roam free during such 'righteous' moments.

One of my muslim friend traveled throughout the Middle East and North Africa; he shared with me with sadness how dark skinned Africans were treated negative in Mecca , Saudi Arabia during Hajj. Today Islam has become more Arabism than Islam, but most Africans Muslims want to overlook the Arab racism in Islam. In Islam you will always find the dark skinned Africans people subservient to the Arab light skinned ruling class.

I am not a muslim but I think if this rule has not been there before now as Nigerians have been attending Hajj before now, then they should have been informed before travelling that they need male escort. The question is, did they inform the pilgrims before hajj that the need to come with a male escort? Somebody said women should not be allowed to go to such religious rites without men. I ask, as a christian, how many of our men go with their wives to Jerusalem? Lets be fair in our judgement.

The issue I see here is that every country is beginning to take Nigeria for a ride and until our government steps up and take a good stand against this, we will continue to face this embarrassment.

The Arabs have no iota of respect for the black man. Anyone in doubt should do a research on the Arab Slave Trade. It was incomparable to the transatlantic slave trade. Very few Africans survived the Arab Slave Trade. If you still doubt me ask yourself the following.

1.How many of Negroes are domiciled/citizens in Arabia today?
2. How many Negroes are domiciled/citizens in the western world today?

Tell yourself the truth! Most of the Black Slaves were hacked to death @ the slightest provocation.

Most African Muslims are wannabes seeking the elusive acceptance of the often proud and hyper-prejudiced Arab Muslims. They receive very little regard except for the few dollars they bring along for their Hajj. Wake up! Sons of Nubia. Wake Up. Religion is a Fleece! How many Saudi Arabians have lost their lives over the so called blasphemies against "Big Mo" to date? Tell Me! undecided

Thank God you said it is not a compulsory thing and it is many, not all. If it had been there rule all the while, no problem but targeting Nigerians is what I feel is happening now. It is no longer about being muslim or christian but being a nigerian.
